Testimonials from parties and other displays:

Hi Jo,

So sorry for the delay in emailing you, but I just wanted to say a huge 'thank you' for the amazing party. Samuel and the kids had a brilliant time - they haven't stopped talking about it since. 

It was a joy to see you with the animals, passing on your passion and knowledge - I just wish I'd experience something like it when I was an 8 year old!

I've attached a thank you from Samuel - despite his reluctance to touch some of the animals, he was genuinely ecstatic that you came.  And Erin (would you believe it) has been telling everyone gleefully about it and how she's touched a snake!

Thanks again - I feel sure our paths with meet again.

Thank you once again

Morning Jo,

Just wanted to say thank you for your party performance for James' birthday last weekend. All the children (and some of the adults) loved it and James particularly thrilled with the tortoise, snake and tarantula. All the parents in attendance were impressed by you and by me for organising it! I was grateful for an hour of near silence to chat with the adults whilst the children were held rapt by the show. I was really impressed and grateful, thanks - hope to share your details with a few potential customers

Hi Jo

Thank you for the fabulous show you put on for Andrew's party on Saturday. Your animals are amazing and the children absolutely loved it. It was exciting, funny and educational too.

I will definitely be recommending you to others.

Thank you once again. 



Hi Jo

Just wanted to say thank you so much for your brilliant entertainment at Ella and Holly's party yesterday.  The adults enjoyed it as much as the children did, many of them commented on how good you were and what a great idea for entertaining the children  (and adults ). Thank you and I will certainly be recommending you. 


Hi Jo. 

Just a quick thanks for yesterday. It was really nice to meet you and your animals. Dylan loved it and my family thought you did did a super job at presenting the animals at just the right level to keep the children entertained and involved. 
Hope it was a good afternoon for you after us. 
Thanks again

Hi Jo

Just wanted to say a massive thank you for Rudys party. Everyone really enjoyed your session, both kids and parents and you did an amazing job keeping the kids engaged for a whole hour and making everyone giggle! Very entertaining AND informative...We all learned something new! 


I wanted to say thank you again for making Dylan's 5th Birthday truly memorable!!! All the children left super excited and many parents have asked after you so I wouldn't be surprised if you get some further St Albans bookings :-) Hope you got home ok and thank you again for delivering a truly inspiring and educationally fun session for a lively bunch of five year olds! Some of the photos of Dylan holding the skink are incredible!!! 

Have a great week and thank you again!!!

Leanne & Sam

Just a quickie to thank you so much for today, Max is now your biggest fan, would like to spend a whole day with you telling him all about the animals and quite honestly so would I! You kept the kids and the parents for that matter fully entertained and hooked for the whole session. Sorry about the restricted space and moving people.
I hope to see you again soon at another party.

Best wishes, Amie 

Thanks so much - Harvey, Oliver and Abigail loved having you at their party. The children (and adults) had a wonderful time learning about your animals, and would not hesitate to recommend you to other people.

We had very positive feedback in the playground this morning - the children had gone home and chatted for ages about you and your animals.

Harvey was so excited telling his grandparents who live in Yorkshire all about it on the phone after the party.

Brilliant! Thanks from all of us.

Hi Jo,

Thank you Jo for giving my joe an amazing party. He loved every second and so did all of his friends. You were really entertaining and the funny facts and quotes have been repeated- you really know how to get kiddies interest and make them

Laugh- adults too! 

So thanks for your crazy enthusiastic show- highly recommend! 


Hi Jo

We just wanted to say a big thank you for Joel's party. Joel loved every minute and I have had lots of comments from his parents friends to say how much they all enjoyed it. The mix of animals was great and you held their attention brilliantly. I couldn't believe how they all sat there and listened so intently. 

Thanks again

Hi Jo,

Just to say thanks very much for entertaining and educating at Henry’s party today. The kids had a fabulous time as did I, and all the parents wanted to know if the kids handled or touched the animals – they were all very impressed that even the more squeamish ones at least touched them and that was down to you and your lovely pets so thanks again, it was brilliant.

 I have put the online payment through so it should appear in the next couple of hours under the reference ‘Sue Westaway Party’.

Wishing you all the best for xmas and the new year.


Hi Jo!

I hope you had a lovely rest of the weekend…

 We all just wanted to say a MASSIVE THANK YOU for coming to Toby’s party yesterday and telling us all about your wonderful creatures. The kids were absolutely enthralled, you did the perfect job of keeping order (much to Toby’s relief!) and your passion for the animals and their welfare is clear for all to see.

In fact your passion is infectious and the grandparents were remarking what an interesting and amazing lady you are… we all loved it, and I’m only sorry I didn’t get to say goodbye properly as I was off trying to feed the kids before all hell broke loose.

 Thanks again so much, I’m sure we’ll see you again in the future.

 Best wishes


Hi Jo ,

I'm so sorry to send this so belatedly but thank you so much for giving Mabel such a memorable birthday. We certainly won't forget the birthday she held a tarantula! It will be a highlight of the year, I still can't believe she did it.

The kids had a great time and you were just brilliant with them. You reassured them and put them at ease with the creatures straight away and shared such fun facts. 

Thanks so much again, 

Laura, Nick and Mabel

Thank you so much for such an amazing experience! Oscar and all of his friends enjoyed it so much and we have had lots of parents say their children haven’t stopped talking about it all day! You were fantastic with all of them and really helped those who felt a bit nervous. 
It was an amazing party and we are so thrilled we booked you and your fantastic animals for Oscar’s 6th birthday.
Many thanks
Lorna, Stuart, Oscar and all his friends 

Hi Jo,
I just wanted to say a massive thank you for today. You were absolutely amazing and Jack loved his party, so much so that he wants to be you!! Lol!! I have already had two mums contact me to say how ‘buzzing’ their children were after the party (and that had nothing to do with the sweets I plied them with ????) but seriously that is all credit to you and how informative and inspiring you are. 
All the best and good luck with your new house!

P.s if you ever need a helper then Jack would be more than happy!! 

Hello -

I just wanted to say how much my daughter and I enjoyed Marley's birthday party with you in Hitchin the other weekend.

It was amazing to see how you connected with the kids, and how many amazing and memorable facts you packed into the hour.

It was a fantastic experience!

Best wishes,


Hi Jo.

Thanks for such an amazing show today!

The children were loving the animals.. and you really held their attention with  the way you communicated your passion and knowledge across to them.. in fact you made such a good impression, they bought my snake and frog t-shirts!! .. excellent!!

We will definitely be recommending you as the best Reptile and amphibian show!

Hope to see you again..

Gemma, Peter, Lottie and Jasper 

Hi Jo,

I just wanted to write a quick note and say a massive thanks for Libby's party on Saturday, with three kids we've had a lot of parties over the years and this was, by some margin, my favourite. 

Libby had a fantastic time and will be talking about it for quite a while to come I am sure.

All the best,


Hi Jo,

I wanted to write to thank you for an amazing party you put on for Nathan's 5th birthday last weekend. Everyone had a fabulous time and I've had numerous comments from friends to say they thoroughly enjoyed it. Nathan had a blast and only wants an animal party from now on for all his birthdays!

To say that we all had a great time is an understatement. The animals you brought with were amazing and we loved learning about them. To get to touch them as well was a huge bonus. We particularly loved the fact that you pay so much attention to detail and are keen to get everyone a bit 'less intimidated' (if that is even a problem!) by getting closer to them. The true testament to the fantastic job you do is the fact that you had almost all the children moving closer to you as each new animal was introduced. A true sign of a great teacher!

Thanks again

Michelle, Neir, Nathan and Raphael

Dear Jo,

I wanted to thank you for your amazing animal presentation at my son's 7th birthday party yesterday! The boys were totally captivated and the party stood out as one of the more memorable ones we have been to. The experience was pitched at just the right level to maintain the boys' attention and excitement whilst also gently engaging the interest of the more tentative children (and mums!). We would definitely recommend your party package to others! 
Overall a unique and amazing party experience!
Best wishes 

Hi Jo,

I just wanted to thank you for coming with your animals to Lauren’s 5th birthday party at the weekend.

‘BEST PARTY EVER!’ Was her response and all the party goers and their parents agreed. You were very engaging with the children and shared a lot of interesting facts. The children all loved holding and feeling your selection of amazing creatures. We will certainly never forget this party in a hurry! Especially as my daughter got to hold your tarantula! Amazing!

Thanks again, I will highly recommend you.

Hi Jo, I would just like to thank you for the display you put on at the Colchester Natural History Museum. My little girl loved every minute and actually told my family some of the facts she learnt not just that she touched a creature. To hold a three year olds interest for the lenght of any talk is amazing but your style reallyhelped to captivate her attention. So thank you again as I also really enjoyed the presentation as well, it was an afternoon well spent. Many Thanks, Sarah.
Jo, I wish to thank you for your amazing animal party for my sons 7th birthday.
You were so professional but also very humorous, the kids warmed to you straight away and absolutely loved you and your beautiful amphibians, insects and arachnid.
All the parents came up to me at the end of the party and said it was an amazing party experience. We learned quite a lot as well as the kids.
Thank you again Jo and will transfer money in first thing in morning.
P.S my deputy head was very impressed and wants to speak with head to get you in the school :)
Take care & hopefully see you soon.
Hi Jo, sorry I didn't get to say bye and thanks yesterday! H and I, and Joseph of course were chuffed to bits with your demo! It was fantastic... I've never seen JJ sit that still for so long!!! He was captivated! He had a fantastic party largely down to your efforts so u deserve a huge thanks from all of us!!! Loads of the parents came and congratulated us on your demo too! I'd love to leave a testimonial on your website! Shall I email u something? Thanks again!!
Chris and I just wanted to say a huge thank you for doing such a brilliant job for us at Edward's party last Saturday! It was such an interesting, fun and relaxed display that you did, enjoyed by all. In fact, we were most impressed to see that you could hold the attention of all 14 kids for the whole hour! And, most importantly, Edward said that he had a 'fantastic' time, so mission accomplished there. Thanks and well done for offering a really reasonable service, we wouldn't hesitate to recommend you.
Hi Jo,
Just wanted to say a big thank you! Chloe and Josh loved the party, and the kids were still buzzing in the playground on the Monday after. Katie's mum was really impressed that you managed to get her to touch the snake, as she is petrified of them.
Fab time had by all.
Kind Regards, Jo.

Hi Jo,
I just wanted to say a huge thank you for Alex’s party yesterday. He had a fantastic time and really enjoyed seeing (if not touching!!) your animals. He said he had a really good day and I haven’t been allowed to wipe the frog footprints off the wall!
I hope you are have a great birthday.
Best wishes,
Good Morning Jo,
Thanks for doing such a great display at Willington, I was over there on the Sunday and couldn’t get close to you to have a chat, there was always a crowd round you! It was really great and kept adults and children both very much entertained.
Kind Regards

Hi Jo
Just wanted to thank you for coming to my son, George's party on 6 October. I've had lots of feedback from the parents to say their children really enjoyed themselves and loved seeing, touching and learning about all your animals. George also loved every minute and took great joy in telling everyone about having the snake around his neck and holding the tarantula.
