Princess Characters for a Birthday Party
I am thinking about hiring an entertainer from magicprincess.com in the Bay Area for my daughter's 4th birthday party in our home. Has anyone used them and had a good or bad experience they would like to share? Were they good and entertaining for 4 year olds (both girls and boys)? Reliable and pleasant? Worth the money ($169 for 1 1/2 hours)? I would really appreciate your comments! Judy
We hired the magic princess people for my daughter's recent 4th birthday party. I would give it an unenthusiastic mixed review. It was ok but not as magical as they appeared in our communication before the party. Maybe it was just the entertainer we got but she seemed pretty inexperienced, overwhelmed, managed time badly, lukewarm. Nevertheless, all the children seemed to enjoy it.
We are two moms who have completely given in to our 2-year- old's obsession with Disney princesses. We are looking for an entertainer who can come to our house for her 3rd birthday party, dressed as Snow White (or Cinderella or Sleeping Beauty or Jasmine or . . . ) and provide some entertainment, like face painting, balloon art or the like. I've searched the archives but haven't found anything specifically about Disney princesses. We were at the playground the other day and someone had Cinderella at their party and our daughter was completely awestruck! I've seen several ads in Parents Press, but would like a recommendation if someone found a princess they liked, or a warning if someone used an entertainer that we should stay away from. Noel
Hi, We hired someone from the Magic Princess last year for our daughter's birthday party and they were wonderful! Here is their website: http://www.magicprincess.com/index.html
Our daughter turned 4 and her entire preschool class was at our home. We opted for a clown and the kids ADORED her! She did a little magic show with them and really engaged all the children. I believe that we had hired her for 1 1/2 hrs, so when there was time left, she sang songs with them in the back yard. After that I took pictures of each child with her and enclosed that in the thank-you cards that I sent later. Some of the kids still talk about this party. She made them do ''magic'' and they really believed that they were doing it.
They were reasonably priced (believe I paid $120 + a tip) and it was a huge hit! I checked their website and saw several princesses that are probably exactly what you are looking for, but they are not affiliated with Disney, so they can't call them by their actual name. For example: Snow White is the Snow Princess. Good luck! JOJ
We just had a princess come to my 6 year old's party from Firepixie (www.firepixie.com). They had many different Disney princesses to choose from (we got Cinderella), and she did some magic tricks, made a balloon animal for my daughter and did some wonderful face painting on all the kids. My daughter was thrilled and all of the kids had a lot of fun, so I would definitely recommend them.

Hi there, Definitely check out Firepixie Entertainment (Firepixie.com). They are the BEST. Erin was Sleeping Beauty (the best princess because she has a pink dress in case you were wondering) for my daughter's 4th birthday party. She did magic, balloons, tea party, brought out the cake, etc. and didn't miss a beat when my daughter mentioned that she had met her at Disneyland two weeks earlier. :) Not the cheapest but by far the best I've seen. We did the party at Fairyland and she met us there so very flexible as well. It's hard to give into the princess thing, I know but it is actually quite fun to go through it as an adult (just don't tell anybody I said so!). Have fun and enjoy all the glitter, pink and purple while you can. Kristie
We just had ''Ariel'' back for a second time for my daughter's 6th birthday party (first time was when my daughter turned four). Be sure to ask for Erin. She did a magic show, tea party and twisted balloons into every conceivable animal for 20 kindergarten girls. Worth every penny and a huge relief to know that she was taking care of all party activities. http://www.firepixie.com/parties/theme/princess.html Feel free to email me if you have any questions! Lisa
