They are prompt to respond and accommodated the short notice given. Their artists (balloon artists and face painters) are magnificent and very professional.
Everything was terrific. I would recommend you and your company to anyone!! Thank you for making it so smooth and easy–and as promised.
I am Angela Parker. I hired you to work the “Superhero/Princess Party” for the summer camp that Jenesse Center hosts for the children who live in our shelter. Words cannot express how it felt to see the look of utter joy on the faces of our kids when they saw Elsa and Captain America. Many of our kids have never had birthday parties, let alone had one on one time with characters. Your Elsa and Captain America were warm, funny and engaging and gave our kids an experience that they will never forget. They felt like VIPS, and to see them building an amazing memory, during a time when you wouldn’t think that would be possible touched me and my staff so much.
I just wanted you to know that the way you bring joy to children matters more than you know.
Lynn, Elsa was great! Everyone had a good time, she is really good at face painting and the kids were very happy. Thanks a lot!
That air-brusher was a hit!!
I’ll be contacting you shortly for my younger sons party may 9th
Thank you for the Magician yesterday! He was great and both adults and kids loved him!
I highly recommend Happy Parties for all occasions. Don and Lynn of Happy Parties were extremely helpful to me in planning my grandson’s 2nd Birthday Party. They went over and beyond to assist me in providing “Bumble Bee” entertainer for his Party, which turned out to be his favorite memory of the entire party.
The toys at Happy Parties are my grandson’s favorite. He loves to go inside and look around and will always find something terrific to pick out. Check the pictures on their website of our grandson with his Sesame Street characters that he bought there!
Most of their items you cannot find elsewhere and are different and unique. And they have stuff that will take you back and remind you of your own childhood.
It’s a great place to stop by and visit. I highly recommend them for any child’s ocassion. Sandy & Jim, and our grandson Dominic
This is an adorable toy store that has some awesome toys! My son frequents the store with my inlaws as their special place. They recently bought him a fireman hat that makes noise. He LOVES the hat- and uses it daily. The batteries ran out and I tired to get them out to replace them- and couldn’t. One short visit to the store, and they happily replaced the hat for me as they couldn’t get the batteries out either.
Amazing customer service and adorable store!

We just had the most amazing 4th of July party and all handled and run by Lynn herself! They have been doing our parties for years and have never let us down.
We have a slew of friends and family from neighbors to movie producers and with her touch of magic they all just come together for a fabulous celebration!
If you really want someone to care and take care of you Lynn is that person! We just love her!!

I just had Captain America for my daughter’s pre-school party, and he was fantastic!!
I really want to thank Happy Parties for sending me such an “amazing” super hero performer, and the best party about it was that he was on time. The kids had a great time. I will be recommending Happy Parties to all my friends for their kids too.

The characters that we had for our child’s 1st birthday party were absolutely “amazing” and we are so very glad that we chose Celebrity Party Planner LA aka Happy Parties for our party entertainment. Not only were the character’s costume impeccably authentic, but the performers were so energetic and great with the kids! We’ll be using Celebrity Party Planner LA, aka Happy Parties for all our future party needs.

The BEST toy store/ party planning store you will ever need! My son and I go in all the time and the owners are so gracious and kind. Beautiful on the inside and out. Fantastic mix of vintage toys and the new stuff. We also had them organize a party for my son’s preschool class and they thoroughly impressed us w their promptness, professionalism, and the magician they brought. The kids went nuts for it!! Very proud of this little store and for it to be in my neighborhood:)
I hired this company for my daughters sixth birthday. They were fantastic. The character girl, which was Ariel was perfect. My daughter is Autistic. Lynn wanted her to be comfortable, and content in every aspect of the party. Nikki really thought that she was Ariel. It was one of the best days in my daughters life. Everything went so well, I was very pleased. Lynn is very professional, and so is her team. I absolutely plan to hire them again. Thank you.

Hi Lynn, here’s a quick note just to let you all know at Celebrity Party Planner/aka Happy Parties, that I now “refer you to all my friends” that ask me if I know of any companies that have Excellent Entertainers. Looking forward to the next time we do a Celebrity Party Planner Party.

I’ve been using your services for 3 years in a row and I have to say, this time around was the best one, by far. The super hero performers went out of their way to really make my son feel special and included him in many activities and games, emphasizing it was his B-day all along, which never really happened before. It made the show extra special for him, for sure!!! Plus, they were really energetic and their costumes were brand new and shiny!!! Way, way better than the guys from last year, indeed, as you promised! This time around was money really well spent and we even extra tipped the guys, since they were so super duper amazing!
I really appreciate those guys and your company for providing such a great service!
Hope to see u next year again!!!
Best Regards! Adriana Dalmeida
We recently celebrated our six-year-old birthday with the theme of Disney’s Ariel character. With only two weeks notice given, the were still able to provide a choice of 3 entertainers to make our birthday girls day very special.
I chose the 1.5 hour rate for 20 kids (not really knowing how many kids were going to show), at $250.00. The lady was a few minutes late, but not more than 15 (I think), and she stayed the full agreed upon block-time. She provided; song, dance face-painting, and etiquette for the little ones.
From what I understand, the kids loved it (I was too busy tending to the adults and sneaking a peak of football). But from what I observed, the kids were attached to her and didn’t want her to leave!
all-in-all, the kids loved it…and that’s who it was for!
“Birthday Party” wasn’t really in my mother’s vocabulary while I was growing up. I can only remember having ONE party, which was in 2nd grade. If I recall, it went well and I received a lot of Barbie Dolls (even though I wasn’t really into Barbies but I think the mothers of the other girls assumed I was).
Walking into Happy Parties was a journey into my absent past and started to heal all the psychological effects that one is traumatized from by not having childhood birthday parties. Happy Parties wasn’t even open when I attempted to walk in but Don, whom appears to be the owner or manager; was still in the shop because the other crew was working on a party that night so since he was there, he allowed me to be there as well, even after hours!
The shop is a mixture of party favor supply and vintage toy store. The shelves are filled with standards like party board games, costumes, party favors such fake rings for the little girls and toy guns for the boys, little stuffed animals, rubber stamps, etc; which are sold individually or can be purchased in bulk for your child’s party guests. The best part, no matter what your age, is the toys that we remember from our years as a tyke: Smurf figurines, rubber Gumby dolls, and slinkies to name a few. It is almost like being at a flea market which is always a treat!
Happy Parties doesn’t just sell party supplies or favors, it also helps plan/run the party providing entertainment (clowns, costumed characters, and face painters), themes, and games. This will take the strain off of any stressed parent! Plus, Don announced that they are starting to run adult parties, as well.
To add the icing to the cake (I love puns), Don was kind, polite, and very cheerful. Again, he allowed me to browse even after closing hours but he also exchanged (graciously) information with my boyfriend after learning that he is an artist and would be interested in providing caricature drawing services at future parties. Don genuinely seems happy with what he does for a living (and I learned that he didn’t have birthday parties growing up, either!).
Whether you are a stressed parent needing party-planning help or just a nutcase needing birthday party therapy like myself, Happy Parties seems to be the solution. Now let me go cry if I want to.
Thank you so much for helping us with a Foofa character for our daughter’s 3rd birthday party. She was terrific and all the kids really enjoyed her. She sang, played games, did magic, balloon animals and more. My daughter and her friends had a blast! Thanks a million.

Just a note to say how much my son and his friends enjoyed the Joker and Batman characters this Sunday. The Joker (David) was especially helpful – he ran the entire hour of activities with the kids and kept them truly entertained. It was quite hot on Sunday and yet they were out there with the kids and no complaints. Thanks so much for helping to make my son’s party a great success!

I would sincerely like to compliment them on making extra efforts to assist us in our project. We particularly appreciated their flexibility and friendliness. Our sincerest thanks.

I wanted to say what a nice job Amber did for us yesterday. Amber was on time, and very cheerful with the children. Her energy inspired the children to play well and keep them very busy with activities. Amber has a great personality with the children. Thank you!

First Birthday Party
Dear Happy Parties,
We’re writing to thank you. You provided the entertainment for our son’s 1st birthday. We had never hired anyone for entertainment and we were especially concerned about the children being upset, scared or bored. Considering that the ages were from 6 months to 4 years. “Spunky” was absolutely wonderful. We congratulate her on a job well done. We received many compliments and everyone was entertained including the adults. We would definitely recommend your company.

December, 2000 – Christmas Party Santa Claus
Re: Our Christmas Party, 2000
Your company provided us with a Santa Claus for our annual Christmas Party held at the American Way Cultural Center. The person you sent was truly wonderful. His terrific personality and sense of humor made “Santa” a big hit. The kids loved him and the adults thought he helped make the party very festive. Unfortunately, we did not get the name of the person you sent but we do want to thank him for being an outstanding Santa. We also thought you would like to receive some positive feedback on his performance.
This is the second booking we have made through your company and we will not hesitate to use your services again when the need arises.
Dear Happy Parties,
We wanted to express our sincere appreciation for sending the best Spongebob ever. We were extremely pleased. What a great person. It was extremely hot out and there were many children (25 total) and he was so patient. He never went out of character. Even his voice sounded like Spongebob. The games he played with the kids were a hit.
Even when he was getting ready to leave everyone wanted pictures with him and he patiently and happily posed for all. We can’t thank you enough for helping make our party a huge hit! We will definitely refer Happy Parties to everyone!
All our best
– The Mardell Family
March 1st, – Princess Party Character
Dear Sir or Madame,
I scheduled a party for my daughter in Saturday, March 1st with Belle in blue and white. It was a hit! Your Belle was a dream come true. She was the most delightful young lady. She was a natural with the children. Being a teacher myself, I know the special qualities of patience and understanding it takes to work with children. She always talked to the children at their own level. She never raised her voice when the girls became overly excited and never turned down a request for anything the children had within reason.
Don’t let Disney find out about your hidden treasure of a Belle. She is definitely a keeper. I appreciated all her help in making my daughter believe the real Belle came to see her exclusively. My daughter also loved the teddy bear gift that Belle brought to her. It was unexpected and very personal. Please make sure that my particular Belle receives a copy of this letter as…
Birthday Party – Princess Party Character
Dear Owner of Happy Parties,
I had a 3-year old birthday party for my daughter yesterday. Her name is Kira. I called your company after seeing the ad in the yellow pages. I have been to a party before where a Cinderella was entertaining the children, and thought I’d like to do the same thing for Kira.
The Cinderella you sent was exceptional. She was professional, loving, sweet, entertaining and beautiful. I think the parents enjoyed her as much as the children did. Many parents asked her for her card after the party was over. I had high expectations, and this girl exceeded them.
To Whom It May Concern
I am writing to your company, Happy Parties, in regards to my son’s birthday party. I had called to set up a meeting between my son and all of his friends to meet Spongebob Squarepants and spoke to two very helpful women by the names of Gina and Tracy. They made the whole experience so much easier and were extremely friendly. Spongebob was extraordinary! My son really loved having him around and was very proud that he was able to be at his birthday. He loved him so much; he did not want him to leave. I have also recommended some friends to call your company because it was so simple and quick to set up. Keep up the good work and let Spongebob know that Victor really loved having him at his birthday.
