    Hello thank you again for choosing Funster! You gave a review immediately on hire and before we had even spoke or services were rendered. I understand you may not have realized the process. Considering we hadn't had the chance to serve you yet at that time nor had we yet spoken, could you kindly contact Thumbtack at 866-501-5809 to correct your review if you felt we did a good job. We strive to ensure the best service to our clients and future clients depend on your review for whether they should consider us. It won't take much of your time and I appreciate your attention to this matter. Thank you again and all the best!

    The Funster team provided so much energy and activities for the kids at my son's birthday party! The kids really enjoyed and loved it! I was so nervous as it was my first time finding someone on Thumbtack but our entertainer really went beyond to accommodate last minute schedule changes. They informed me that their usual audiences were older kids (older than 5) but when I told them majority of my kids were younger than 5, they quickly adjusted their line up and brought little instruments for our little guests! It was wonderful! We hired them for balloon artistry and sing-a-long/dance session.

    I picked Funster to run the entertainment at my daughter's 1st birthday party at a community center I had rented out. What an amazing experience from start to finish!! Christina and Tonya are very professional. They both made sure that all my concerns and questions were addressed. Christina even went as far as to meeting my husband half way, knowing we were running late with pre party errands, to deliver the speaker we had rented!!!! What also impressed me was that everyone was on time and made sure everyone was satisfied. The face painter was a true artist, the kids' faces looked great! No one was rushed and everyone got what they wanted. The magician JO JO was very pleasant and kept everyone amused. My guests were very happy and her balloon sculptures were a hit! Lastly, the cotton candy person was also very personable. I only wish she would have dressed for the event since she showed up with a t-shirt and sweatpants. I definitely wasn't very pleased with her appearance. Nonetheless, very very pleasant and made sure everyone was accounted for. I would definitely consider them again for another event and will recommend them for sure!

    Thank you so much Fatima for having us be apart of your families special day! I am so happy your event was an overall success and that you were pleased with our team/services. We do have a uniform policy in place for parties and events. Our concession worker worked a outdoor event prior to yours where it was extremely cold and unfortunately did not have her change of attire. Again thank you and we hope you consider us again in the future! All the best!

    The performance was good but rushed due to the fact that they arrived 40 mins late and before they could do all the performance the party time was over. I think if they had got there on time it would of been better.
    Funster E. Dec 10, 2014

    Shidea, although we appreciate customer reviews and are always aiming to provide the best entertainment possible, failing to review our invoice unfortunately caused your misunderstanding. As we email our invoices in advance, we do so to insure accuracy. As you may recall I pointed out after your event that you stated the party was 3pm to 7pm and our scheduled arrival time was 5pm to 5:30pm. We arrived at 5:30pm. Music was set up and our character came in shortly after. I did take a moment as I was preparing balloons for our limbo dance notice your son wanted a balloon. His father said I would make balloons soon. He was adorable and I didn't want to disappoint him as we were not hired to provide that service, therefore did not have balloons. I had a couple balloons left and I took the time to make a balloon animal as his father held him. If there was any delay in the character it was only due to the time interacting with the the birthday child and children during set up. Those minutes lost we stayed after for photos, as I mentioned to you during your event. Plus arriving at 5:30pm as indicated may be were you calculate 40 minutes. In addition, we have a competitively low rate of $95 including 2 entertainers for a 30min show, you hesitated to pay and asked for a discount. We pride ourselves in the high energy our entertainers provide. Our music is timed and we stayed the duration of the event. We arrived as scheduled and as indicated on your invoice. We are happy you enjoyed the show and encourage taking the time to review your invoice for any changes or corrections that may arise in your future events. Thank you.

    I hired Jojo for my daughter's 1st birthday party. This included a silly person ( no makeup ) with a magic show, balloon sculptures, and a cotton candy machine. She was absolutely wonderful! She was prompt in arrival, though we were not, and extremely entertaining for the kids. Actually I think the adults may have enjoyed her more because she was very funny. I would recommend her for any event any time! Thank you for lightening my load by being such a great entertainer! You helped make my baby day very special!
