I was very, very, very happy with the Batman who came to my son’s party. The kids absolutely loved him and he played the part perfectly. He was super friendly and the kids had a blast having him participate in their activities. The best part which was a surprise to us was the pre-made (brilliant idea) balloon characters. That was such a nice touch and I loved that the kids didn’t have to waste time watching balloons being made. I will happily work with you again. Batman could not have been more professional and just super all around. Thanks!

This was my first time planning a huge event and Howell from Parties for Peanuts was fantastic!!! He gave me lots of options based on my questions and was amazing with follow up (which I needed as I was overwhelmed with how much was involved in this project). On the day of the event, Howell called me to check on the stilt walkers and mascots to make sure they showed up on time and they were also absolutely wonderful and professional!! I will definitely use this company for future events and highly recommend them for any party your are hosting!

Howell: Everything was great for the party. "Mrs. Mouse" was a hit and the girl did a really nice job. Thanks!

Andrea B., Teaneck

Hi Howell, just wanted to let you know that the Bat-man did a great job. He was great with all the kids and he made my grandson feel special. My grandson said to me on the way home "That was the Real Bat-man you know"...Thank you so much for making a little boys dream come true...

Bob B., Andover

Everything went very well on Saturday, thank you so much! I will highly recommend and have already recommended others to your company! Thanks again! Jeremy and the other kids enjoyed the party!

Tamara M., Jersey City

We just wanted to thank you again for a wonderful addition to our party. We are the party on 9/20/14 with the White Snow Queen. The girl who came was very professional, pleasant and exceeded our expectations!!

Thank you again! Nicole M., Washington Twp.

Hi, Howell! I just wanted to say thank you so much for Mrs. Mouse who came last night to my daughter's 1st birthday party and made it a huge success! The kids and the adults loved her! She was so charming and a great person! I am so glad everything was handled so professionally and according to what we spoke about. I will be definitely contacting you for near future parties and recommending you to my friends!

Thank you, Katherine A., Fords

When I called Parties for Peanuts for my daughter's 1st birthday party I spoke to Howell. From the moment we spoke it was very pleasing. Everything was clearly explained and his intention was to make my daughter happy. We decided we would have a princess theme so we decided on Princess Belle for my party. Let me tell you she was the highlight of the night. Everyone loved her, especially all the kids!!! She arrived on time and she was just amazing! She looked beautiful (just like a princess), was very kind, and the kids loved her so much that they were telling their parents how they want her to come to their next birthday party! All the parents were asking me where did you find her? I just gave everyone their business card. I was very happy and pleased to find Parties for Peanuts!!!! Parties for Peanuts is the best at what they do! I give them the best rating. I recommend them to all my friends and families.

Thank you again Parties for Peanuts!

Liz V., Saddle Brook

Thank you so much for making our daughter's birthday party last Sunday a big success!

Happy holidays, Neha R., Scotch Plains

Parties for Peanuts was very professional and reasonably priced. We had "Mrs. Mouse" for our daughter's first birthday party and she was prompt and very attentive to the kids. The kids had a blast! We would definitely use them again and refer them to our friends!

Jennifer F., Wood-Ridge

Vanessa was great as the "Red Monster". Maya and all the kids really enjoyed the performance. (And so did all the parents!) Vanessa was friendly to everyone at the party and the balloon animals and tattoos were perfect. I will recommend Parties for Peanuts to all my friends. Thanks so much for making Maya's party so much fun.

Alida M., Secaucus

As I previously mentioned,everything was wonderful. Vanessa's performance was exceptional, far above my expectations. As the "Red Monster", she was engaged, energetic and a lot of fun. The kids had a wonderful time. They're still talking about it. In fact, even the adults had a good time. Balloon animals and face painting was great as well. She was so patient and friendly with the kids. The face painting was beautiful. I've been to similar kids parties but by far that was the best performance I've seen. I couldn't have asked for anything more. Her performance was really superb. Thanks a million!!!!!

Ninette D., Piscataway

Thank you so much for helping to make our event spectacular. The amusements you sent us worked out perfectly. They arrived on time. The staff members were efficient and courteous. The inflatables were clean. And of course the trackless train and the ponies were adorable. And everyone had smiles on their faces and so much fun!! We have worked with other companies in the past but yours is a keeper. We especially like that you can supply us with everything from face painters to inflatable slides, ponies to trains. We look forward to hiring your company again for many events in the future.

Rachelle Zomick, Director, Preschool at Chabad of Fort Lee

Parties for Peanuts was great. When I booked the party with Howell, he was very professional and prompt, and the day of the party was amazing! All the kids had such a great time and I had so many parents ask me who I used because they were very impressed how good the staff was. Thanks again for making my daughter's 1st birthday so special!

Annalisa B., Wayne

The Fairview Public Library would like to thank "Parties for Peanuts" and Rosemary for an outstanding job on the Easter Bunny program. The children and parents were entertained and it was an enjoyable event. We look forward to using your company again and definitely recommend to all.

Thank you, Fairview Public Library Staff

This is the second time I've used Parties for Peanuts and it was the best experience ever. Very friendly magician and the person that played the character did an amazing job with the kids. My son loved it. He asked me to get them back this year after last year's party. Awesome job guys! Keep up the good work!

Thanks, Gabriela D., West Orange

Just wanted to write to thank you and let you know how happy we were with Ariel yesterday at our daughter's 1st birthday party. She arrived on time and was wonderful with the kids! We had children ranging from under 1yr to 5 yrs old and she was able to entertain all of them! She was a hit! Look forward to working with you again for future parties!

Lauren B., Ramsey

The clown was GREAT on March 24th for Lily. The children loved him and he was very patient with one older child in particular. Lily especially loved "holding" the magic wand :) Thanks for helping to make it such a fun time.

Alicia P., Valley Cottage, NY

Parties for Peanuts was perfect. They were available at the last minute, the entertainer was great at capturing the attention of the children, and the prices were the most reasonable in the area. Would definitely recommend to anyone and will use their services again.

ZS, Englewood Cliffs

Keeping over 20 toddlers and their older siblings entertained for over two hours in nearly impossible. However the amazing staff at Parties 4 Peanuts did the impossible, and I had to send a testimonial. Our Dora and Diego theme party was amazing. All the kids enjoyed the moon bounce and the characters. The Explorer Boy and Girl characters were very entertaining and interactive with all the kids. The balloon animals and face painting was just the icing on the cake. The party was two weeks ago and I am still getting calls from parents whose kids told them they had the best day ever. Thanks Howell for being on top of every detail. This was the first party I made that I actually got to sit back and enjoy!!

Lori B., Englewood

I just wanted to personally thank you for providing us with the Easter Bunny back in April. He was a real hit at the party. The kids really loved him. I would love to have the same performer for our next event.

Thank you again,

Francis F., New Milford

I used Parties for Peanuts for my sons 5th birthday. We had them come as Buzzy spaceman. The gentlemen that came showed up as himself first and spoke to my husband and I about the ages of the kids and reviewed everything he would be doing. He then went out to change. He came back as Buzzy and was very, very good with kids. We had about 15 kids and most of them were 5 years old, with a couple older and younger, and ALL of them had a great time. He played games and had them running around with him. He was very interactive and paid attention to all of the kids but special attention to the birthday boy. After Buzzy left, the young man came back in as himself and spent more time doing balloons, face painting and tattoos. He was just as good with the kids as he was when he was Buzzy. Very interactive and talked to each one of them. He was very prompt. I would definitely recommend them to anyone and use them again. At the end of the day my son said it was the best birthday ever. Parties for Peanuts had most to do with that.

Thanks again,

Dani U.

I just wanted to take a moment to thank you for your assistance with booking the entertainment for my little princess' birthday party. It was a pleasure and hassle free from start to finish. However, most importantly the entertainment was great. The kids LOVED the magician!! So much so, my son asked if I can have him return for his birthday party. Once again, thank you for your help in making my girl's birthday party a special one.

Sincerely, Suzette N.

The boys' party was great and the kids enjoyed the Pirate performer. Thanks again for your service.

Best Regards, Jessica K.

Santa was once again a wonderful addition to our annual Christmas party. Aside from my getting to dance through the adults with the jolly fellow, I was delighted by the children's reception of him and Santa's interaction with the children. It made me feel like a kid again, as we sang the old favorite songs with him. Everyone enjoyed seeing him. I can't help smiling as I write this. We had a great time.

We also had fun when you found Winnie the Pooh for us. I won't hesitate calling again the next time we need someone special for an event.

A very Happy New Year to you and to all those wonderful characters you provide.

Many thanks,

A very satisfied customer,

Marietta F., Englewood

Once again the River Edge PBA would like to thank you for making Santa available for our Christmas party. As always all the kids, including the adults, enjoyed Santa's visit. Parties for Peanuts has once again helped us make our party a huge success. Since Santa is the main reason for our party, its nice to know that we can rely on you for your professional and experienced service. Although he's busy during this season, Santa gave us a full hour of fun and games and made certain that all the children felt comfortable and had a great time. We look forward to seeing him again in 2007.


Mark A., River Edge PBA #201

Thank you so much for the great Santa Claus performance on Christmas Eve. The children all had a good time, from the 21-month old to the 10 year old. The parents and grandparents had a good time, too. Santa was punctual, wore a clean suit, and wasn't in a rush to leave. We all enjoyed the songs, the candy canes, the pictures, and of course the presents we left by the door. You were recommended by my friend Lisa, and my sister-in-law Maria, who used you for other characters, but I was still nervous about the most important character of all, Santa Claus, and what a relief that you were a success! And thanks for picking up on all the kids' names, it made it more real for them. See you next Christmas.

Susan O., Englewood Cliffs

Our Grand Opening was a HUGE success! The kids loved Cinderella & the big brown "Scoo-bee" Dog, and we loved their cheerfulness & professionalism. Parties 4 Peanuts is a great company! They went above and beyond to meet our needs, and we will most definitely be using their services for all of our future events!

Kate Ross



Dear Howell, I wanted to thank you so much for the BEST party and memories you made possible for my 2 year old and my entire family!!. Mrs. Mouse was amazing, professional and knew all the songs and dances and my daughter cried when she left! What really made me SUPER satisfied with your company is that I contacted you at the last minute, at Christmas time no less, with the oddest request. I initially requested a half hr for about 5 kids. You went above and beyond and stayed for more then the time and more kids showed up last minute and you were not only prepared you were happy to accommodate. I also was relieved that you came with the music and the radio and everything because I was dealing with enough chaos that comes with a birthday party for a 2 year old I didn’t have to worry about a thing. You were on time and everything went so smoothly unlike other companies I have dealt with!!!! I will most definitely use your company again and again and recommend you to other families. I want to thank you again and I have attached pictures in case you’d like to share them with potential customers!


Leela F., Montville

Just a quick thank you for my (6 year old) daughter's birthday party. The girls really enjoyed the magician. He was funny and very good. He was also punctual and professional.

Thanks again,

Joanne K., Hillsdale

We invited Tinkerbell to our 5 year old's birthday party and she was great. She arrived on time, sang a welcome song to and with all of the kids and was able to integrate with the children and into the party as planned. She was flexible in terms of what I wanted her to do with the children and she was nice and appropriate with them the whole time. It was as if she was the other adult helping me at the party as she occupied the girls with games and songs while I set the tables for cake. We took a wonderful group picture and had a great time!

Tsipora C., Teaneck

Thank you so much for making our son's third birthday party a fantastic success!

We booked a clown, pony rides and bouncer from you with the hope of providing 15 children of differing ages with a fun and happy time. We had some very special requirements that not all party organizers can meet and we're happy to report that you exceeded our expectations and are guaranteed future bookings with us. Many of the children who attended our party have various special needs. We therefore needed providers who could create the atmosphere and activities that we wanted while still maintaing respect for the unique requirements of our guests. You understood our situation well and selected providers who perfectly met our criteria. We're happy to report that every single child enjoyed the party and participated in the fun. Consequently all of the parents thanked us for providing activities that their children would otherwise not have been able to enjoy.

Thank you again! We couldn't be more pleased!

Linda and George, Garfield, New Jersey

On July 11, we had my son Kevyon's 3rd birthday and we had Squishy Man there and I must say he was so good with the kids even the adults enjoyed him. I can't thank you enough for such great service. Thanks again Howell and Parties for Peanuts. I will be calling again.

Jessica F., Cliffside Park

I want to thank you for making my 2 year old daughter's birthday party so much fun! We had the Red Monster come. She was punctual & did a wonderful job with the kids. She was full of energy & entertaining. The face painting & tattoos were a huge hit too. We will definately be using you again.

Wendy L., Lyndhurst

Thanks. I'm very satisfied with the service. The girl who performed the Red Monster was very professional, and even the voice sounded authentic. The dancing, the face painting, the balloons; everything went really well. As I told you before, last year we had a bad experience with another company, so my husband and I were not sure to get an entertainer this year, but I'm glad we changed our minds, and I'm glad we found your company.

Raquel C., Little Falls

I want to thank Parties for Peanuts for providing Captain Baloney for our annual American Legion picnic on 9/18. He kept the children entertained with his magic show, balloon making and face painting. He was also very pleasant to work with. I would highly recommend Parties for Peanuts for any party.

Joe H., Fair Lawn

Parties for Peanuts provided 2 clowns for my daughter's party on 9/11/10, and they really made the party! They played songs and games, made balloon animals, did face painting/tattoos and really provided the focal point for the kids to gravitate to. They were the best, and I would absolutely use them again, and recommend them any time!

Peter M., Paramus

The character was great and the kids had a great time. Many mothers took your card given by the wall crawler and maybe will call you again on their next party. Thanks. Great show as promised.

Ronclark C., Bergenfield

Hi, My name is Ruth and I just wanted to share with you how pleased I am with your services at both my sons birthday parties. I had the red power man for my oldest son's birthday two years ago and it was awesome. This year I also used your services for my baby's first birthday and I could not ask for better entertainment.The children absolutely loved the big green monster - Yo!, especially my one year old ! He could not stop laughing and jumping!The young man was very patient with the children and I will definitely recommend your company to any of my friends! Thanx again !

Sincerely, Ruth, E., Newark

Mike did a great job as Pooh for my daughter's party. Sorry I forgot to tip him, but I am sending it along seperately. Thanks for everything!

Gabriela G., West New York

I have three children and have been utilizing the services of Howell at Parties for Peanuts for 8 years now. I would never use anyone else! He is extremely creative and great with the children. I have had parties with over 30 kids present and he was able to entertain them all! I call him with my party idea and he assists me in creating the schedule and entertainment for the children. He is also very accomodating, and goes out of his way to make your party is a success! Without him, your party will be a bomb!

Rosemary B., Palisades Park

I just wanted to thank you and let you know that Josh the magician did a terrific job! I know that having a range in ages can be tricky for any performer, but Josh managed to keep everyone from the 2 year olds to the 8 year olds entertained! The kids were amazed by the magic and finally, enjoyed the balloons too! I would be happy to recommend "Parties for Peanuts" to all my friends. Thank you again for a great show.

Suvendini N, Ramsey

Thank you for the wonderful service. Mr. & Mrs. Mouse kept all the kids entertained. They put smiles on their little faces. I would recommend your service to others and would use you again in the future.

Thanks Again,

Dina W., Fairview

I just wanted to thank you for doing an outstanding job for my daughter's party. The "Great Dane" was the hit of the party and had the kids dancing and laughing the entire time. This is the third time we have had a charcter visit for my daughter's party, and your staff always does an outstanding job! Thanks for making Julia's 5th birthday party so special.

Tammy P., Rumson

I just wanted to thank you and the red monster for the great job at my son's 1st birthday party. Seeing my son smile and have fun was the best thing ever! All the kids enjoyed him and the balloons, face painting/tattoos, and lollipops! I would highly recommend your service for someone's party.

Christina M., Elmwood Park

I just wanted to say thank you very much for Curious George's services at my son's 3rd birthday party. Donny (aka George) was a pleasure to work with. He was courteous to the adults, patient with the children, and very easy going. My son and his friends were excited to see George, and Donny made the day a success. I will definitely refer you and your staff to everyone I know.

Sherri M., Lodi

Howell, I've been absolutely swamped at work so this note is very overdue. Thank you for doing such a wonderful job at our party on Feb 12. The kids (and adults) had a great time thanks to you. And I appreciated your follow up call. Thanks again. You were a pleasure to work with, and right on with the clown suggestion!

Lauren C., Livingston

We had a birthday party for our 5 year old twins, the clown who came from Parties for Peanuts was a great entertainer. All the kids enjoyed the magic show and the face painting.

Jaya M., Ramsey

We hired Parties for Peanuts to do our son's 2nd birthday party. The girl that came dressed up as the "red monster" was AWESOME!! All the kids absolutely LOVED her!! She made my son's birthday party very memorable and I can thank Parties for Peanuts for that!! THANK YOU!!

Jennifer C., North Bergen

I had the Wall Crawler surprise my 4 year old nephew at his party. The party was great. The character is very kid friendly and really knows how to keep the kids'attention. They played games, he put on tattoos, took many pictures, sang Happy Birthday, and even had a gift for my nephew. I will definitely be using Parties for Peanuts again for another party. Its been a week and my nephew is still speaking about it.

Victor C., Elizabeth

Hi Howell,

Thank you so much for providing such a great service. Your red monster rocks! We were surely recommend your company to other friends & fanily. Thanks again.

Prerna G., Paramus

Hello Howell, We spoke earlier today regarding my daughter's Birthday party. I've attached a picture from the party if you'd like to post it on your website along with my testimonial. My daughter loves Winnie the Pooh and the theme for her first birthday was naturally, Winnie the Pooh. I'm so happy I found your website on the internet while searching for party entertainment. The woman who arrived to act as Winnie the Pooh was excellent! She was prompt, professional, and was great with the children. I had about 15 children at this party, and she did a wonderful job of keeping them entertained for the entire time she spent there. The birthday girl loved it as well as all the other children. I now know who I will call for future birthday parties! Thank you so much.

Thanks Again,

Mariela T., E. Orange

Hi Howell:

My husband and I just want to take this oppourtunity to say thank you to you and your wife for what you did with the balloons. We loved them and the party turned out very nice and wonderful. Everyone at the party really had a good time, even our 1 year old too :) He loved Santa!!

Santa and the Elf did a good job, and the kids were very entertained by them. Our friends won't stop talking about it even after the party and saying "how nice it was or how much they liked all the ballon decorations"! Overall, it was a good day and an awesome party. My husband and I are so glad that everything turned out so well. Thank you, thank you, so much for everything!I'm sure I'll be seeing you again for our next big party that we'll plan in the future. Ciao

The Duchemin Family

I want to thank you sincerely for making Kiara’s 5th Birthday Party so much fun for her and her friends. The bouncing castle was fantastic and the kids really enjoyed playing in it the whole time. That’s the way to do a party! Also the pony was another sensation for the kids, they really loved it. Thanks again Howell and Parties for Peanuts!

Claudia and John G., North Arlington

Hi Howell,

I wanted to send you a big THANK YOU for the pony services you provided for our daughters 3rd birthday party!!! We weren’t sure what to expect but not only was the pony the highlight of my daughter & friends day but the handler was great, as well as Tarten the pony!!! With horrific weather on the horizon you did not pressure us to make a hasty decision of cancelling but yet worked with us to make the right decision!! For that we are thankful, the day ended up with no rain & a smile on my child’s face that we will never forget!!! Thanks again for your services & you can be sure that we’ll be calling you for future business!!! Our little one is turning 2 in June & you will be contacted for sure!!
