Richard and Linda, I wanted to thank you both again for the amazing birthday party experience you provided.
The Reptile Roadshow was a real hit with the youth club members. Richard worked very hard; he only had just over an hour to deliver to 40 young people. Two groups of 20 were quickly organised, it was a real hands on experience and the kids loved it! Two young people with disabilities were encouraged to join in and one of them fell in love with a lizard! Would recommend the Reptile Roadshow to anyone, will definitely have them back again. Thank you very much.
The Reptile Roadshow provided a very hands-on and exciting experience for our KS1 children. They thoroughly enjoyed seeing and handling a variety of reptiles, including snakes and lizards, a giant tortoise and cockroaches. There was also a scorpion, although this was not to be touched by the children! The event was topped off, literally, by a “chinchilla experience”, to the delight of the children.
Richard came with all the animals to our house for a birthday party. All 14 kids were over the moon! Richard effectively managed the overexcited crowd for the full length of the show and gave hand with piñata and tidying up. Many thanks!
The party was a resounding success and I have received some very positive comments from both children and parents alike. Some parents who didn’t stay for the party have said they now wish they had due to what they have heard from their children!
I have to say I was a bit concerned as to how you would manage to keep 12 five and six year olds occupied for 90 minutes but I had no cause to worry. You managed to strike the perfect balance between fun, education, mystery and control. I was very impressed.
The range of creatures you brought was great, allowing each child ample opportunity to hold, pet and ask questions. You are clearly knowledgeable on the subject of each of your little critters and the level of detail shared with the children was spot on.
I have no hesitation in recommending you to others, and have already passed on your details to some friends and work colleagues.
We had Richard’s reptile show for my son’s seventh birthday party and it was fantastic. Richard had all 22 children absolutely spellbound. All of them were mesmerised as he introduced them to his world of creepy crawly animals. Richard is obviously passionate about his animals and his enthusiasm rubbed off on the children, making it an amazing experience for all. I can definitely recommend him!
I had the roadshow for my daughters 7th birthday party. We had 15 children and Richard handled them all so well. He managed to keep them all totally interested in the party and did an amazing job of slowly encouraging the children who were a bit apprehensive at first, by the end of the party all children were handling the reptiles. Richard certainly knows his reptiles and knows a lot about them and the children loved hearing all the facts about them too. I would definitely recommend this party for girls and boys it was fab, its debatable who enjoyed it more the adults or the children…..
Thank you Richard
Many, many thanks for a wonderful reptile party for Harry. He so enjoyed himself and only this morning was telling me facts he had learn t about the scorpion!
I was nervous about having 20, 8 year old boys and whether they could stay focused and still for 90 minutes but you handled them really well and kept their interests going
all the time. The selection of animals was perfect and letting each child have a turn was the most fun for them I think.
I have had lots of comments from Mums saying how much their boys had enjoyed the party.
From first conversation right through to the actual day the communication was excellent.
The Reptile Roadshow came in to work with our Year 1 class and it was absolutely brilliant!! Richard had a great manner with the children and was very patient with all 30 of them. They were engaged and excited by all the Reptiles and most were willing to hold or touch them (even the more reserved children). Have recommended to others in the school as the children were still buzzing about it the next day! We had some fantastic literacy work after and our photos are great.
