This is Brian Coughlin. I organize an annual event called the Baltimore Buddy Walk. The purpose of the Buddy Walk is to promote acceptance of people with Down syndrome. This is an event that provides these individuals, along with their many supporters, an opportunity to proudly express who they are and their importance to our society. Character-Visits has kindly donated a character to The Buddy Walk for the previous 3 years. This was greatly appreciated and one of the favorites of many of our participants. You guys have been amazing to work with and we look forward to having a character again this year. Here are the details of this year's walk:
When: Sunday, October 29, 2017 9AM-12PM (character from 9:30-10:30)
Where: Rash Field Baltimore Inner Harbor (same as last year)
Your services where very helpful in making a young ladys short time with us a little brighter as she is dying of heart failure and is not eligible for another transplant. Your employee was very understanding of the situation and handled it perfectly.

I had Snow White come to my daughters 5th birthday party today and she did an excellent job. Thank you so much,
I just wanted to pass along we had a great experience with Spidey at my son Louis's 4th birthday. He was great with kids and very professional.
Hi! I just wanted to let u know how awesome Steve was for our Batman party! He did an incredible job and the kids had a blast! My son Jake said he loved it and it was so much fun. We were very pleased and will recommend your service to our friends and family!!
We had Barney this weekend and the costume and entertainment was
amazing. The kids and adults got a kick out of it!! All guest were
asking where I found you. Thank you
The Batman that arrived for my son's birthday party yesterday was absolutely terrific!! He did a great job making the kids feel special and I was very impressed with how much he seems to care about his role and the impact on the kids.
... we were ALL VERY PLEASED!!!!
I will definitely recommend you to family and friends!!
Thanks again for all the wonder you create.
In superhero spirit,
My son MJ had the opportunity to meet you at the Pop Shop when you did an appearance there and he had a great time. You were very engaged, spent some time with him and even sat down to color with him. I reached out to them for your information and they provided me with this email.
Hi there. I wanted to let you know that the entertainer was fantastic.
She did a great job with everyone and I would recommend you to anyone!
Lehigh Valley Mall
Princess Anna (Bonnie) was incredible!!! The kids and adults loved her and every mom there asked for your card. Thank u so much for the best 3rd birthday party my daughter could ask for!!!
I just wanted to let you guys know that Lisa (AKA Elmo) was absolutely wonderful during my son's birthday party. She was great with the kids and everyone (especially my 1 year old son) absolutely adored her.
We hope to use your services in the future.
My daughter had the best day ever!
The performer was polite and good with the children
they loved poppy especially the birthday girl thanks!
we had an incredible event!
I'm glad poppy was there to help make it that way even when we booked at the last minute I am grateful for the availability I surely will recommend to family and friends.
This company was professional from start to finish! From the initial phone call to schedule "Poppy" from the trolls movie, she showed up on time with the hugest smile! She did face painting and magically became Princess Poppy. She danced with my 4 year old daughter and friends in the tightest quarters (my living room), sang Happy Birthday and took photos with everyone! She was also very cautious as not to have the children see her changing in and out of her costume on our back deck. So professional and courteous I would absolutely recommend them to anyone for their children's birthday party. I will definitely be utilizing them next year! Thanks again!!
There are not enough good words in the dictionary to describe this company but here it goes! I first came in contact with Character-Visits in 2015 when in search of a "good" Mickey for my daughter's 3rd birthday party. They were recommended by a high school friend who had recently used them herself. Due to the good recommendation and pictures I saw I hired them. On time, professional, GREAT looking and clean costume, personable and patient are just a few things I can say to describe Lynn (aka Mickey). I can only say that she was as beautiful inside as she was on the outside. The day following the party I text some pictures to Lynn of her and my daughter to thank her for being so great with her and she responded immediately stating that she too had just as much fun as my daughter did and she then asked about the awareness ribbons on the shirts we all were wearing. My daughter has Down Syndrome as well as Congenital Heart Disease. She was also born with Transient Leukemia and has been in remission since 4 months old. That is just the beginning of my daughters journey. When Lynn heard this her first response was to ask how she could help my daughter and children like her. I informed her that I was on the board with the Children's Heart Foundation and our mission is to fund critical life saving medical research to save the lives of heart children around the world, including my own. One month after my daughter's party Character-Visits came out to a craft fair/block party I held for the Children's Heart Foundation and donated their time as Elmo to help us raise much needed funds for CHD research. It has been 2 years now and they still to this day are helping us save lives. I can never ever thank them enough for all they have done and continue to do for our babies, including my own. I spend many, many, many hours begging and pleading with companies to help us help our children. Its not often I come across one that offers themselves fully to help us on our mission. When you combine professionalism, beautiful character costumes, loving caring business owners and their need to help the world be a better place I don't think you can get much better than that.
I have used your services before and you guys are great!
My name is Jannet I booked the poppy and branch characters for my daughter
birthday last Saturday and I just wanted to say thank you. The young lady
and gentleman that came to enterain the kids did an amazing job and was
very professional. I will definitely recommend and use your services again.
Thank you guys so much!
We had Ariel at our party on Sunday and she was amazing. So wonderful with the kids! We could not have been happier!
Again thanks for everything. We will be referring your company out to others. In fact 2 parents from the party already requested the web site which I was happy to pass along.
You guys are awesome! This is our 3rd time using your services and you
never disappoint. We had Super-Man come for my son's 3rd birthday and
he did an amazing job. He made our little guy feel like he was a
superhero for the day. He was great with the other kids and very kind.
He made time to teach them super hero moves, danced, played a game,
helped with the piñata and sang happy birthday. Thank you so much for
making his day special!
I just wanted to share my experience on how spectacular batman n wonder woman were at our son's and daughter's birthday party. They were energetic and fun and also were very kind with the more shy children. We would completely recommend this company to friends, in fact, two of my guests have already asked for contact information.

Thank you soooooo much! Marshall was a HUGE hit at my son's party!! I'm beyond happy with the service you provided! Your character entertainer was super sweet! I hope to use your company again in the future! Thank you!!!
My name is Olivia and I'm a sophomore at Villanova University. I actually reached out to Matt and your company to request a donation at last years Special Olympics Fall Festival. You were SO accommodating and wonderful with your donation of the Olaf character. The athletes absolutely LOVED him and I'm sure the new Entertainment Committee will be interested in working with you in the future. Thank you again for your help with The Special Olympics. Hopefully, my sorority can work with you as well!
Mr Mouse Birthday Party!
Having Mr Mouse come to our party was the highlight of our son's first birthday party! They were not only on time, but they came to the front door in their costume and was so friendly and helpful to keep all the kids attention. All the kids from ages about 1-10 absolutely loved Mickey and the character stayed so that any and all family members and friends got so many great pictures! I would highly recommend this company and can't wait for our son's next party!
Thank you. This was fantastic!!
For what the event was and it's special handling, the character handled it professionally bringing the event to a fantastic surprise for the special person we held the event for! I will always recommend you.
We love you guys!! Thank you so much!! Just priceless ...
1.27.17 Hello there!
You were AWESOME!!! Thank you for making his 1st birthday party great!!! Samir was wiped out. He fell asleep on the ride home.
can't express how happy it made my daughter to see Skye for her
birthday party; but this picture says it all! Thank you so much for an
amazing job at bringing life to the party and allowing my daughter to
meet her favorite paw patrol character!
I used your company for my son's birthday last
year and I was extremely pleased. I was wondering if you have something like cookie
monster, curious George or transformer costume? Elmo last year was spot on!

I wanted to say thank you and praise the Amazing Spider - Man for the awesome job he did at my son's 6th birthday party!! He was full of energy and was fantastic with all of the kids. He was a hit and my son still talks about Spider - Man coming to his birthday party. Great Job!!! I will definitely recommend Amazing Characters for our friends and family.
Again, thank you!!

Hi, just a quick note of thanks. Lisa and Kathy were so great with the kids. They showed everyone attention while still making our birthday girl the focus of the celebration. Thanks again, I'm looking forward to doing business with you guys in the future.
Today, Bat man ... appeared at my daughter's 5th party. He was excellent!
Friendly, funny and full of energy. The parents enjoyed his shows as much
as the kids. He made all the kids feel welcomed and was sure to include the
few kids who were shy ... I would recommend this company to anyone looking for a super hero at their party.
Thank u so much! What a performance Rapunzel gave! The kids loved her!

I want to thank you so much for the Amazing Spider-Man (Ernie) that came to my son's birthday party on Sunday. He truly was Amazing!! You can tell by his energy and spirit that he likes his job. My son was totally in shock the whole time he was there. He has told everyone that the "real" Spider-Man was at his birthday party. Ernie fit the part better than I had expected. We have had characters in the past come to parties and I wish I had found this company years ago. The parents at my house could not stop talking about how good he was. I definitely will recommend Amazing Characters to anyone that asks and if it's a superhero request I will refer Ernie to them. Thank you for making my sons birthday party the best yet! I hope that this email will reach Ernie so we can thank him again! Thank You Ernie!!!!

Good afternoon! I just wanted to take a minute to absolutely rave over the fantastic job Lynn did portraying Elmo for my daughter's 1st birthday party. I was nervous having never done this before, but she was so great. She really helped me through the process while still allowing me to make all of the decisions. She was very accommodating. She was energetic, friendly, extremely approachable with the children, she was fantastic!! I can't say enough. The kids loved her in and out of the Elmo suit. The face-painting was awesome. But best of all, my baby girl loved her, and Elmo. Of course I am sharing a couple pictures. Thank you again so much for a great experience for my Olivia's 1st birthday party. I will definitely use this service in the future and highly recommend it to anyone who will listen! Thank you so much, I look forward to our next party.

My son turned 4, and wanted a pirate theme party. We found you guys
online with short notice we able to still be served. They gave us a
call in advance to explain the lay out that was planned. My pirate was on point stuck by his side the whole time. Over all he was full of life and energy. I
will keep in touch with this company and will recommend anyone to you.
Thank you so much you rocked thank you. I am very satisfied
with my service.
I placed an order to have Bar---ney surprise my niece who is a Bar---ney fanatic at her second birthday. This company was nothing short of amazing. I placed the order two days before the event and there was absolutely no problem with the short notice, and the woman who came as Bar---ney, Lynn, was one of the nicest professional encounters I've ever had with an entertainment organization.
The Bar---ney costume was identical to what your kids watch on TV, and the dancing, loud Bar---ney songs, and lollipops that were handed to my niece made her life considering she's a Bar--ney fanatic. This company and Lynn (the woman who portrayed Bar--ney) and Matt (the man who helped me book this character), exceeded the expectations that I had.
If you're looking to surprise children with their favorite characters, or even have a mascot for an event, this is the place to work with. Thank you so much Matt and Lynn! You really made a little girl's second birthday beyond special!

Our superhero was so well loved at this party that most of the guests wrote us!!
To whom this may concern, I used this company & I can say truthfully Spider-Man ( Ernie ) was Fantastic, my mom also wrote a review, but I felt the need to do it also. First my son loved him! Spider man was full of energy, with him it made my sons bday more fun.
He opened his presents with him, played on the rides, we were at chucky cheese, he played games, just a all around great guy because I felt he didn't have to do some of the things he did. Please if you need guy characters ask for him you won't regret it.!!
Spider-Man (Ernie) I highly recommend, he was so fun with my grandson! He went in the chucky cheese rides with him opened his bday presents with him, showed him a really good time! Please ask for Ernie for your character you won't regret it..! Thank you Ernie for everything you did at Tommys bday.!
Spider-Man (*Ernie ) was awesome! He was just as extited as my grandson was! I really feel he went above and beyond at our party! He played on a merry go round in his spidery suit, come on people that deserves a review!! He kept him smiling all night. He started losing his voice towards the end because he kept yellin " WooHoo.. It's Tommy Birthaday !! Ya Tommys Birthday..!! "
I Highly recommend Him,!! I felt he really liked his job, because it didn't seem like he wanted to be anywhere else except at "Tommys Birthday!!"" Please if you need a charter ask for him!!10 plus stars
If I could leave more stars I would! Spider-Man (Ernie) Thank you so much for the great time you showed Tommy for his bday.! You are a great Spider-Man, & a great person. He really enjoyed you playing with him, I will tell everyone I know to use you because your awesome.. : )
My Grandson had Spider-Man ( *ERNIE*) HE was Amazing!! He was full of energy, highly motivated to show my grandson a Great time,..! I highly recommend him. We were at chucky cheese & he played every game with him, went on all the rides with him(yes on the merry-go-round) with his costume, which had to be uncomfortable, but not to him! He ended up losing his voice towards the end of the night because he was having such a good time with my grandson,
"woohoo its Tommys Birthday!!! Ya woo, Tommy Birthday Party!!"" I will try to put some pics up..; )
Spider-Man (Ernie) was awesome, !! He really showed us a good time at my nephew Tommy's 4th birthday party. I wish we could put up videos on google because you could see what I'm talking about,.! Hire Ernie, everybody should have him at their party.
Dear Spider-man/Ernie, I sincerely want to Thank you for a job well done. By You being right next to my son for his party, you made great memories with him. Opening his presents, playing with him, just being a great Spider-Man. I hope people see this and ask for you because you deserve it.!!

My name is Lemeko Green and on 5/28/16 my son had a party with Raphael the ninja turtle and in my 6 yr olds words the experience was Super Awesome!!! Maurice was the best!! He arrived early as a courtesy and it was so needed and appreciated. The face painting was beautiful for the kids and a few adults. He brought his own treats to give to the kids and you know kids love treats. He really made my son feel special and that it was truly his special day!!! He danced, showed the kids a few moves, posed for pictures and sang happy birthday. Overall things were a true success!!! This was my first time having a character at a kids party and I have 3 sons. I would recommend you to others and I would hire more characters in the future.
Keep up the good work.
Meko - Washington Dc Birthday Party Character
Hi Alexa, Anabelle was excellent!! She came to my son's birthday party last Saturday 5/28 as Michelangelo the ninja turtle. Even though it was super hot out she gave us a great performance. She danced around with the kids the whole time and took lots of pictures. She also did the cake with us. I thought because of the heat whoever we got would kind of just stand there but not Anabelle. She was great. Her costume was great too! It looked brand new and of good quality. I will definitely be using you guys in the future if we need another character and I will recommend you guys to family and friends ... everything was great. My son was really happy.

Good Morning Matt -
I apologize that this email is so late, but I wanted to reach out to you to
let you know that Chris was an amazing Spider-man! Chris came out last
Tuesday to my son Ashton's school to surprise him and it was the greatest
party ever. He said the best thing about his birthday was that he was able
to get Spiderman to come to his party.
We have had a Spiderman party every year for the last four years and this
by far was the best! My son and all of his friends loved every moment of
their visit with Spidey.
I truly appreciated the fact that it did not intimidate Chris at all that
there were a lot of children that wanted to see Spiderman and share in the
I am working on doing something for my son's class for the end of the
school year and would love to have Chris come back again to visit. I think
that I may actually add another character. Right now I am not sure about
the date, but will reach out to you and your team as it gets closer to that
Thank you so much for everything!

This weekend was my son's 4th birthday party and we hired batman to attend
for one hour.
He went above and beyond our expectations and had the children's
attention from the very beginning. He was age appropriate, but even had the
adults in on the fun. His entrance was set to music and the kids loved it!
It was everything we hoped for and more!
Thank you so much and please let batman know what a great job he did in
making my son's day literally perfect! People are STILL talking about how
epic it was.

We hired Iro--man for my son Dylan's 4th birthday party on 2/27.
Iro--man was on time, he amazed my kid from the time he appeared on our
walkway until the moment he left. He was super friendly, very engaged with the kids, he took many
pictures and even sat and talked to the kids while they ate cake. He
sung happy birthday and even dealt with the interruptions from the
older kids like a champ.
All my guest enjoyed him and my son couldn't be happier! He still
asks "Where is Iro--man?" I've never seen his eyes light up so much!
Thank you so much to Iro--man for everything you did for our little guy
(I forgot his real name but I think it was Ernie).
Please let him know how pleased we are with his services.

Sun, Sand, & Spiderman: Liam’s Beach Vacation of a Lifetime“A WONDERFUL TRIP FILLED WITH HAPPY MEMORIES” Liam wanted to ride a boogie board over the ocean waves with his dad, build sand castles with his older brother, and look for shells along the shoreline with his mom on a tropical beach getaway, and that is exactly what Kids Wish Network gave him! The warm turquoise waters of the Gulf welcomed Liam and his family with open arms as they embarked on their dream vacation in St. Petersburg, Florida.
Liam has hydrocephalus, a build-up of cerebral fluid putting pressure on his brain. Doctors have also diagnosed him with a complex brain malformation, epilepsy, autism, global delays, and cyclic vomiting. He has been hospitalized countless times with complications from his illnesses and undergone multiple surgeries. Liam was definitely in need of some time spent away from x-rays, shots, and stethoscopes, which is why Kids Wish Network was more than happy to fulfill his wish for a trip to the Sunshine State.
Liam’s family managed to pry him away from his little slice of beach paradise long enough to enjoy the other highlights of St. Petersburg as well. While visiting the Clearwater Marine Aquarium, Liam became fast-friends with the stingrays as he stroked the slimy yet smooth surface of their velvet coat exteriors. Afterwards, Liam set sail on Captain Memo’s Pirate Ship to soak up some sun, search for dolphins, and embark on a true buccaneer adventure filled with treasure hunts, face-painting, and water-gun fights.
Liam “loved all of the activities and it was so cute to see him dancing around” with fellow swashbuckler crew members according to his mom, Megan. They had a “jolly-roger” good time and ate a dinner worthy of seasoned seafaring folk at Bubba Gump Shrimp Co. where the food was “delicious and the service was A+,” says Megan. The vacation continued with trips to every 5-year-old’s guilty pleasure, Chuck-E-Cheese, in addition to visits to Great Explorations Children’s Museum, Sunken Gardens, and TradeWinds Floating Water Park. Character-Visits.com even sent over Liam’s favorite superhero, “Spiderman,” to play with him during his stay.
Overall, Liam’s family “had a wonderful trip,” says Megan. In fact, Liam had so much fun that the young tyke took an energizing nap for “the first time in years,” she continued. Kids Wish Network is pleased to have helped Liam create such happy memories that are sure to last a lifetime.
Kid’s Wish Network would like to thank the following Guardian Angel sponsors for their participation in Liam’s wish:
• Plaza Beach Hotel
• TradeWinds Floating Water Park
• Frenchy’s Rockaway Grill
• Bubba Gump Shrimp Co.
• Captain Memo’s Pirate Ship
• Clearwater Marine Aquarium
• Great Explorations Children’s Museum
• Sunken Gardens
• Texas Roadhouse

Good Afternoon,I just wanted to give some feedback on Michael who appeared as Raphael at my son's 4th

Everyone loved him and he was so good with the kids!! Unfortunately, the day did not turn
out as nice as I hoped for weather-wise, but the kids didn't care b/c they had so much
fun with "Raphael." Some of the parents are still asking me about him! :)
Thank you for such great service. I will definitely use your company for future parties
and highly recommend you to all of my friends or anyone in need of a character!!

Please excuse the tardiness of my email, but things have been crazy since our son's birthday party on Saturday, September 19th. Nonetheless, I wanted to make sure to let you know that we were most pleased with Ernie as Darth Vader. Before the event even began, he was very accommodating, cooperative and punctual. Then, he was terrific for show time!
I realize that like most (crazy) parents planning for a birthday party, we pass along our stress to you. When it came to delivering on the entertainment, you assigned the right guy to make it happen.
My son is still talking about his party and how much he loved "hanging out" with Darth. His favorite parts were when Darth helped him break the Death Star pinata, when Darth helped sing happy birthday to him and taking pictures with Darth.
The bottom line is you were an integral part of making Asher's party such a success and for giving him such great memories. In other words, THANK YOU.
With kind regards,
Gabin R Manhattan NY Star Wars Party Characters

Ayana’s family has been particularly close-knit since April, 2014, when a persistent leg cramp led to the unexpected news that Ayana had Neuroblastoma. While the Cancer Center team at the Children’s Hospital of Philadelphia is, in Ayana’s words, “doing their best to get the cancer out of me,” everyone has rallied around the beautiful little girl with the shy smile. Ayana’s journey has been a long and brave one full of amazing grace. She’s an inspiration to all who know her story.
This summer, after she returned home from a round of treatment, her parents, Yolanda and Reggie, bought her a beautiful pink bike with stars, and Ayana was so excited that she took a test ride around the store! They’ve been on three family trips this summer. “We now truly, truly, appreciate the time that we spend together as family,” says Yolanda. “We appreciated it before, but my goodness, we appreciate it more.”
We hope many of her friends and family will be at the Four Seasons Parkway Run & Walk on Sept. 19, sporting pink Team Ayana t-shirts (pink is Ayana’s very favorite color), to show Ayana how much support she has as she continues to battle against “the dragon” of cancer. Ayana is serving as one of the ambassadors for the event, sharing her story and helping to raise awareness and funds for pediatric cancer research and survivorship programs.
“Parkway Run means that we can gather as one with other families and have a moment of triumph in the name of what we’re fighting for,” says Ayana’s father, Reggie. “It gives us hope to continue fighting, and surely bringing all this love and karma together in one event is what we all need.”
The Four Seasons Parkway Run & Walk is a 5K Run & 2K Family Fun Walk that benefits pediatric cancer research and survivorship programs at The Children's Hospital of Philadelphia. We hope you can join us as a Team Ayana participant or make a contribution!

The day before my daughter's 4th birthday I decided to find a Doc Mcstuffin character to come to her party. So I looked online and started dialing local entertainment places. Matt picked up and said that it would be no problem and that Doc would be able to attend my daughter's party. That night we had a very bad storm closing roads everywhere and major power outages too. The day of the party I received a call from Lynn (who called from a friend' s phone because her's wasn't working and her power was out too) to confirm with me that she was still able to get to the party as long as I was still having it. My daughter was sooooo excited about the party that I couldn't cancel even though we didn't have power either. The party was a blast!!! My sister said it was the best party she ever attended!!! I feel that it was thanks to Lynn and your company. Lynn arrived and found a spot on the deck because it was cooler out there and began painting the kids' faces and putting on tattoos too. She was very patient with the young children who were indecisive about what to get. Every child was fully satisfied with their art work. She changed into Doc arrived shortly after and met my daughter in the front yard. My daughter's face was priceless!!!! She gave Doc a hug, took her hand and walked together to the backyard to greet our guests. She danced with the kids and posed for lots of pictures!!! She passed out candy which got the older kids excited about her being there. She helped us sing happy birthday and then we ate cake!!! I have used another company in the past but this company will be the one I will use from now on and tell my friends about too!!!! Thank you for making my daughter's 4th birthday party so memorable!!!!!

Ernie was Jake the Pirate for one of my wish children who had a party in the hospital. The child was very sick and the party needed to come together very quickly. He was very professional contacting me the day to confirm details. Ernie arrived on time and was very compassionate. He was great with the children and the family who were going through a very difficult time. I appreciate all the help and understanding this company provided. The mother of the child said everything was perfect. I appreciate Ernie's role in making it possible. We would love to have him again at other events in the future and we would definitely refer this company to everyone.

The nonprofit "Aidan's Avengers" hosted a charity golf tournament at the Reading Country Club in Exeter Township on Friday. It was in memory of Aidan Dunion of Amity Township. Aidan was four years old when he lost his battle with an aggressive type of brain cancer last year. It was a productive, but emotional day for those at the fundraiser. Aidan's Avengers was created by Aidan's father. All the money raised Friday will go toward research and helping families affected by the disease.

Maurice came as spider man. He stayed for happy birthday and helped unwrap gifts with the kids. Everyone @ Character-Visits.com was very accommodating.

My son had an amazing experience and Ernie AKA batman was outstanding.
I have been so many kids parties and by far Ernie was the best character I have ever seen.
He was professional and courteous.
Ernie called me before to discuss specifics called me when he was on the way so I could plan my party .
Also, upon arrival, he came in and discussed his entrance.
His patience and ability not only to have fun but to communicate the right types of message to the kids was priceless.
As a father of a special needs child I need to always be cautious about how my son behaves and make sure he stays engaged in activities but with Ernie he was perfect.
Again many thanks to you Matt for setting this up and to Ernie for an outstanding job .
I would definitely recommend your services to all my friends.
Please communicate this to Ernie for me.
See you next year as my son has already requested for Batman to return.

My name is Micah Moreno and I currently serve as Program Services
Coordinator for the Darrell Gwynn Foundation. The Darrell Gwynn
Foundation (DGF) is a 501(c)(3) organization located in Davie, FL
whose mission is to provide support for people living with paralysis
and to prevent spinal cord injuries.
The primary way in which we fulfill our mission is through our
national Wheelchair Donation Program. DGF donates custom power and
manual wheelchairs to children and adults facing medical and
In about 4 weeks, we will be donating a custom Spiderman themed
wheelchair to 3-year-old Felipe Guzman of Tamarac, FL. Felipe was
born with Cerebral Palsy and was using an adaptive stroller which
was being held together with duct tape. Today, for the first time,
he tried out a manual wheelchair and was able to move himself around
independently for the first time. It was very exciting to watch! We
are thrilled to help Felipe get moving independently!
Felipe attends ARC Broward Preschool in Sunrise, a school that
serves 3-5 year olds with special needs including Cerebral Palsy,
Autism and Down Syndrome. We would love to present Felipe with his
new wheelchair in front of all of his friends that he will now be
able to interact with!
The preschool currently serves about 55 children. Because Felipe
loves Spiderman, his wheelchair will be Spiderman-themed (today
Felipe was wearing Spiderman sneakers and has Spiderman leg
braces!). I'm writing to see if you would be willing to donate your
time to have a Spiderman character help present Felipe with his new
wheelchair and entertain all of his friends.
The wheelchair donation will take place on February 25th and will
begin at 10:15 am in the preschool cafeteria. It would be incredible
if your company would be able to assist in this special event.
We would love to be a part of this! We will donate a Spidey to assist you for this special event.
Thank you. I look forward to meeting your actor!

Dear Rent-a-Character.com, when people ask me what difference a donation can make, I reply that donations to the Darrell Gwynn Foundation of change lives. Parents have told me with tears in their eyes what it means to know that their child has received the gifts of mobility and independence through the donation of a new, fully-customized wheelchair. And behind every one of these changed lives there are compassionate people like you dedicated to helping. I truly appreciate your support. I want to sincerely thank you for your in-kind donation. This will help the Darrell Gwynn Foundation continue to support individuals with paralysis and prevent spinal cord injuries. By giving the gift of mobility, the foundation has enabled these individuals to return to work and school, attend community events, or simply play at the park with friends. There’s an old saying in racing: “It’s not where you start, but where you finish.” The race to support people with paralysis and prevent spinal cord injuries is well underway.

Last month, December 15-16, Ayana returned to New York for an update of her scans and bone biopsy. The purpose--to determine the results of the clinical trial in contrast to her previous scans and treatment. As previously mentioned, prior to the trial, Ayana's cancer remained at stage four, with visible tumors in her skull, shoulders, spine, small detection the size of a nickels in the knees, sternum, hips, thighs, and in her bone marrow.
Team Ayana On December 16, 2014, Ayana completed both the scan and biopsy (i.e., front and back in waist area) and later during the day we were informed of the miracle. Ayana called, "Daddy Daddy, my cancer is gone! my cancer is gone! I am coming home to do the happy dance. I know we were going to come home tomorrow but I want to come home tonight because I want to go to the school's Christmas concert in the morning." Team Ayana, Ayana's scans are CLEAR!, with the exception of two dime sized areas in the center area of both knees. This was outstanding and overwhelming news. Still, we held out hope as we did not have the results of the bone marrow. Ayana and mommy arrived home later that evening and we, cried, hugged, prayed, thanked God, and did the happy dance:). Team Ayana it was too difficult to post as we did not have the results of the bone marrow test and we did on December 17, 2014, the anticipated call came and Ayana's test indicated--NO EVIDENCE OF DISEASE (NED) in her bone marrow. JOY! JOY! JOY! JOY! The miracle is happening before our eyes. Thank you all for the prayers. Thank you! Thank you! Thank you! We are celebrating with the understanding of the fact that there are still two small areas in her knees to clear but we are headed in the right direction with the right treatment and the right TEAM. WE LOVE YOU ALL EVER MORE!

Hello ... my name is Stephanie and I am writing to you because I have a friend who has a 5 year old son who was just diagnosed with DIPG which is a form of terminal brain cancer ... he is staying at Nemours childrens hospital in Orlando right now and he loves Spiderman and Ninja Turtles ...

Hi Stephanie, we will donate a superhero. Please call us with the date, time and address and we will make it happen.
Thank you soooooo much ... he will be soooo happy! It is great that you guys take the time to do this! God bless your business!

Hi, I am looking for some information for a 2-year old's
birthday party for Sunday February 15. Thinking about Barney or maybe
Minnie Mouse. We had Elmo to come to our house from your company about 2 years ago
and you (Lynn) was amazing.
Could you also let us know how much it would be for a visit (1 hour with face painting like last time)?
Thanks very much.

I have to thank Spider man, I think his name was Ernie. He was
spectacular! My son's 4th birthday party was at the Gladwyne Fire
House in Pa. Spider man lead a parade around the fire house, sang
happy birthday, showed the kids superhero moves, danced, helped serve
cake and even held my baby who crawled right up to him. I cannot
thank him enough. All of the children were so excited. I definitely
recommend the man who was Spider man!

I just wanted to let you know that my daughter really enjoyed her visit
from Ariel the mermaid this Friday, Nov. 7. I was very impressed by how
well Ariel engaged my daughter and the three other little girls, which is
the real key to this type of job, and the highlight of my daughter's
evening was to dance together. Ariel even got a hug from my 7-year old son!
I also have to say that I was impressed by how prompt Ariel was, which was
really important since we had friends driving from out-of-town and there
was a short window in which all the guests were here.

We had their party on Nov. 2nd, 2014. Mr. Andrew who played the character Mickey went above and beyond what I expected of the character. From the time he arrived till the time he left, he did an awesome job!!! I, along with the parents and the children, especially my daughter, were soooo pleased with the entertainment. He was the life of the party and I couldn't have asked for more and I just want to say thank you to your company and especially Andrew for an awesome job. I have already been getting emails from parents who were at the party, as well as, the ones who have seen the video on my facebook page asking how to book him so I expect him to become very busy lol.

Ayana's Amazing Grace Foundation is Official!
posted by Yolanda Banks on Wednesday, October 22, 2014
Ayana’s Amazing Grace Foundation (501c3 non-profit ) is official and ready to take donations. We have a team that will be working on the website and coordinating fundraiser’s. In the meantime many of you have been inquiring about the foundation. Here’s what the foundation represents: The specific purpose of Ayana's Amazing Grace Charitable Foundation is inspired by Ayana Banks a 6-year-old who recently has been diagnosed with Neuroblastoma a form of Pediatric Cancer and currently undergoing treatment. It is dedicated to Ayana's dream of helping other children to be brave while “Surviving” childhood cancer. All monies raised will go toward improving the quality of life of children with cancer and their families during treatment. · offering financial assistance · educating families · supporting training and research · promoting public awareness and advocacy · reducing the serious side effects of cancer treatment · providing treatments that facilitate quality of life · finding a cure for Neuroblastoma · increasing the survival rate of Neuroblastoma Make Checks payable: Ayana’s Amazing Grace Foundation c/o Yolanda Banks Send to: 4232 Parkside Ave Philadelphia, Pa 19129 EIN#47-1742067 We continue to admire and appreciate the time and support you have provided to our family. Words cannot express our gratitude. Ayana’s story is so rare that we are still learning about her unique circumstance, yet, we are comfortable in sharing it with others. One of the reasons Childhood Cancer is the leading cause of disease for children, is lack of awareness, funding, and many families deal with this crisis in silence. Along with the personal fight and with your assistance, we will help to increase the Childhood Cancer awareness with the start of Ayana’s Charitable Foundation. The Banks Family

Lynne called me on Friday to verify the details & arrived promptly at 7pm. I want to tell you that Lynne was AMAZING! Absolutely Perfect. My niece LOVED her and believed it was the real El sa. From the time Lynne arrived until the moment she left - she became El sa & was completely focused on Evelyn. There was nothing Lynne could have done to make this occasion better. She took pictures with everyone, didn't rush anything & even cut the cake & sang happy birthday. (Lynne has the patience of a saint). She never even checked the time. I've never sent an email like this but I had to let you to know what an amazing job Lynne did to make a little girls 3rd birthday more than I could have hoped or asked for. Please thank Lynne for me again and thanks to everyone at your company for a job well done!!

I just wanted to take the time to say that the gentlemen that attended the party as H--ulk and Iron--man did a wonderful job and they made the party for my son. My son said that his is favorite part was getting to spend time with H--ulk and Iron--man. Not only did they put on a good show but they went above and beyond in the time that they spent with the boys, for example after the show was over and before we sang happy birthday the heroes took the time to go play ball with all the kids in the backyard and one of my sons favorite things to do is to play baseball and they took the time to play baseball with my with all of the kids at the party. They made my son Rick feel like he was the center of the universe and the best way to sum it up was they pretty much brought his heroes to life. Thank you again.

By Cherri Gregg WILLIAMSTOWN, N.J. (CBS) — At seven years old, Ella Wilson is a bubbly, vivacious second grader.“My favorite color is pink,” she says, laughing. “You can tell by my kitchen and my dress and my headband.”If she didn’t tell you, it’d be hard to guess that the Williamstown, NJ girl was diagnosed in 2011 with type 1 neurofibromatosis, or NF1, a genetic neurological disorder in which nerve tissue grows tumors throughout the body.“She’s susceptible to cancers, behavioral issues, low muscle tone and poor coordination, vision loss,” says Terri Wilson, Ella’s mom. “Some get scoliosis [spinal curvature], some get bumps all over their bodies, some are disfigured.”Terri, who runs a summer camp for kids and adults with special needs, says that while the symptoms of NF are frightening, Ella smiles, laughs, and sings a lot.Ella recently began a second round of chemotherapy to stop the growth of tumors in her brain. Her hair sheds heavily, and she wears glasses and carries a white cane since tumors in her eyes impair her vision.But none of that seems to bother Ella, who instead focuses her attention on winning at Candyland and on helping others kids with NF.“She raised $10,000 for CHOP (Children’s Hospital of Philadelphia) for NF research, she did a Disney Friends For Change grant event,” says Terri. “A lot of people came out and volunteered for the day to make hats and headbands for kids that have cancer. These are all her ideas.”The Wilson family started a Facebook page called, “Hope for Ella” last year. In less than ten months the site has picked up roughly 3,500 “likes” from people all over the world. The family uses the site to get the word out about fundraisers and events, such as the one they’re throwing this December: a holiday party for kids.“I want to be an elf because I’m kind of silly,” says Ella, who plans to wear green. “I want to hand out treats. We’ll have a deejay. Santa will be there!”In addition to being the life of the party, Ella is also a budding songstress. She sang two songs during her interview with KYW Newsradio, one by Hannah Montana and the other an original: a call-and-response song titled, “Hope for Ella.”“Everywhere we go, we want the world to know, we’re fighting for a cure,” sang Ella, “So ,NF no more, so we tell them we’re from Hope for Ella — mighty, mighty Ella!”The Wilsons say the vision for Hope for Ella goes far beyond Facebook. Terri says the family is in the process of starting a nonprofit organization to help raise more money for research. Ella says she approves.“I want the world to know we are fighting for a cure,” says Ella. “I want kids like me to feel like they need to be a part of this world and that they have a voice that needs to be heard.”For more on Hope for Ella, go to https://www.facebook.com/HopeForElla.

El_-sa was so incredibly beautiful and sweet. Her dress was amazing. The
birthday girl and all her friends really believed she was El_-sa. All the
girls were wearing princess dresses and they all got to take individual
pictures with El_-sa in a giant princess throne. El_-sa went outside by the
princess castle bounce house and chatted with the girls. The girls loved
asking her questions. El_-sa danced with all the girls in the living room to
Let it go¹. El_-sas look and performance was beyond my imagination, it was truly a
dream come true. All the Moms thanked me so much for giving their daughters
such an amazing experience. It was way better that seeing a princess at
Disney World, because El_-sa spent an hour dancing, talking and taking
pictures with all the girls it was quality time. El_-sa was the highlight of
the party and the best money I spent on my daughter¹s birthday party. These
memories and pictures will be cherished for a lifetime. THANK YOU so much

Good morning! I wanted to write to you today in regards to the character rental for our son's 4th birthday. My son is all about Bat hero man so we decided to have Bat hero man come to his party. I have never had anything like this at my children's birthdays and was a little unsure how well it was going to work. Well I have to say it worked perfectly! From the moment I spoke with Ernie he assured me that everything was going to be great. He was very upbeat and was all about making my son's birthday a memorable one. He executed Bat hero man perfectly and the kids had a BLAST!!!! His energy level was through the roof and the kids couldn't get enough of him. Parents were raving about him as he interacted with the children. He also added some great messages to the children about being good to your family and friends. I can't thank you enough for making my son's birthday one that will be talked out about for years to come!!! I just wanted you to know that you have a terrific employee who loves what he does and it clearly shows. Thanks again!!!

Ella wants YOU to come celebrate with her! After 16 months of chemotherapy for brain tumors caused by her genetic disorder, Neurofibromatosis… she is ready to party! She wants to thank all of those who have followed her journey and supported her along the way.
Williamstown’s own, Ella was diagnosed with NF1 in May of 2011 when she was just 5 years old. Shortly after it was discovered that she had many neurofibromas and optic pathway gliomas that were continuing to grow in her brain. Among a slew of other side-effects of the disorder, she now had to undergo chemo to treat those tumors. Although with treatment we were able to stabilize those tumors, she is not out of the woods… Neurofibromatosis has no set path and she is still at risk for tumor growth, cancers and many other serious side-effects. There is NO CURE! Kids should not be in and out of doctors, getting IV’s and receiving countless tests. Please join us as we spread awareness for this beast and celebrate her journey the way kids are supposed to… by PLAYING! NO ONE FIGHTS ALONE! In honor of Ella’s mission to spread kindness and compassion we will also, along with a grant from Disney’s Friends for Change, be making hats and headbands for the kids over at CHOP who are currently losing their hair due to treatments.

Tomorrow marks the 5th anniversary of Spread the Word to End the Word, a universal effort to eliminate demeaning language towards people with intellectual and developmental disabilities and replace it with respect. I need your help and ask that you activate your voice via social media and throughout your community to pledge support in both words and actions to create communities of inclusion for people with IDD with this pledge:
I pledge #RESPECT thru my words & actions. Support the use
of respectful language for EVERYONE at www.r-word.org
Over the last 25 years in my role at Best Buddies, I have enjoyed the opportunity to work and interact with people with intellectual and developmental disabilities each day. I'm constantly reminded that these individuals have so much to offer us in regards to the way they choose to see the world. Our participants are the most amazing friends, colleagues, and employees. I'm so grateful to have them in my life. I don't want them to be exposed to hurtful and demeaning language.
BILLY'S REMARKABLE STORY
I'm in Boston today, which reminds me of the story of Billy O'Brien. Billy began working with Best Buddies in September 2010, and acquired a position working as an Office Services Assistant with Eaton Vance Investment Managers after having been unemployed for more than a year prior. Since then, Billy has grown from working 25 hours a week, to working 35 hours a week, and also enjoys full benefits such as health insurance, a 401(k) and profit sharing.
WATCH Billy O'Brien & Eaton Vance's Story on YouTube
The progression that Billy has achieved within the company has been extraordinary. Beyond Billy's work performance, he and his co-workers have impacted one another greatly in their unified efforts to create a truly cohesive and integrated work atmosphere. Billy continues to work and grow at Eaton Vance. He's a man who loves his job, and he hopes to continue his career as an Eaton Vance employee for many years to come.
I urge you to join Best Buddies in our effort to support individuals like Billy and Spread the Word to End the Word by visiting www.r-word.org and taking the pledge to stop using the r-word now and forever.
I'M DOWN WITH YOU (FREE DOWNLOAD)
After you take the pledge, please enjoy a free download of a phenomenal book and resource I'm Down With You, about the incredible special community of individuals with Down syndrome.
The book contains over 100 photographs in the form of portraits and families along with essays by me, Sharon Stone, and Jagatjoti Khalsa, photographer and creator of I'm Down with You.
Download I'm Down With You, FREE in the iTunes Store
Please take the pledge today and help create a more accepting world for all of us. Thank you for everything you do to contribute to the Best Buddies mission. Together, we are changing the world!

Hello!!! I am writing to tell you how pleased I am with the Arie-= l that I hired for my daughters 3rd birthday party on Sun Oct 27. I believe her name was Jennifer that played Ariel for us. She was awesome. She arrived on time and gave me enough time to get all the kids gathered and they were all so excited when she walked in, especially the birthday girl. Ariel was awesome and patient with all the kids, she did great face painting and also was great when she had them all dancing and singing. Then she started singing and she sung beautiful, that was a very unexpected surprise. She was very attentive to my daughter and made her feel very special along with making the other kids feel special. I just wanted to make sure you knew how wonderful it was and that I will be recommending and using you in the future

The entertainer called us the night before and explained what was going to happened and he answered every question we had. He was PHENOMENAL as Michelangelo! Ernie included all the kids and did an excellent job of making Liam stand out as the birthday star! As a face painter without the costume, he was easy on the eyes for all the ladies and made a few husbands jealous! He was down to Earth, high energy, very sweet and very professional! I have recommended Character-Visits.com to a few people. Everyone was pleased with his performance!!!! Thank you for giving us such a great entertainer and making Liam's party a huge success!

Just wanted to send a quick note to let you know how wonderful Lynn was to our little Princess at our Princess-themed birthday party yesterday.
Our family has taken in a brother and sister as foster children (with the hopes of adopting them in the near future) and we wanted to make this years birthday memorable for the little girl since it's been a lot for them to go through.
Setting up the event with Lynn was so easy. She spoke to me on the phone about the party and what our needs were, she arrived on time and looking beautiful.
We had her set up while the kids were occupied in another location and when all was ready the kids all filed up stairs and the Birthday girl was last and all of them yelled down to her "CIN,.;' DERE';LLA IS HERE!" Her face lit up as she ran up the stairs and subsequently got to dance with her favorite princess, play games with her favorite princess, got a waltz and curtsy lesson from her favorite princess, a treasure hunt supplied by the princess herself...the birthday girl had a grin from ear to ear the entire time. The rest of the children present had a ball as well!
I was so happy when I had a few requests that Lynn was willing to take part in and she was so willing to go along with it all...certain games for the kids to play (involving the "glass slipper"), and also since we aren't the bio mom and dad the little one doesn't always behave as she should and I purchased a Disney princess children's book all about manners and etiquette. With the message coming from Cin de[;;']==-rella, her favorite princess, it might be easier to reinforce, but more importantly for the birthday girl to hear.
At the appropriate time, Cinde r-=0ella said "I have a gift for you" and gave her the wrapped book, and proceeded to sit and read the story to all of the children with the birthday girl (at this point in the party dressed as scullery maid, Cinderella) sitting on her lap. At one point the birthday girl took over the reading to show Cinderella how well she has improved since starting at her new school. A proud moment for the foster parents.
While the rest of the party lined up and played "Princess Says" the birthday girl had a costume change and Bibbidi Bobbidi Boo she transformed into her own classic ball gown in time to cut the cake and then take photos and have a final "Happy Birthday" dance with the princess before she got in her carriage and returned to WDW.
This morning, on our way to camp, the birthday girl, who is very closed up and doesn't share a lot, said to me, "last year when I blew out my birthday candles I wished the Cin-==der-ella would come to visit me..." I teared up in the front seat.
Don't think for a second that your company doesn't make dreams come true. Not just hers, but ours as well. Many thanks to Lynn!

I absolutely loved my performer that we hired! She arrived on time and was very professional. I would've had her stay for the whole day if i couldve, but she had two more parties to attend. My 1 yr old and the rest of the kids loved her, the first part of face painting then followed with D0r@ and a routine. She was seriously the sweetest person, especially with this heat. I would be here all day expressing how much we all enjoyed her. I would definitely recommend Character-Visits.com to everyone!! Thanks sooo much!!

Hello Matt this is Jessica P from Liberty Mo. This message is to tell you about the wonderful Princess you selected for my 6 year granddaughter's birthday party. Gabbi's choice was Princess Ar-=i el and that what I thought a difficult choice to pull off. Our princess, Katie, called me the night before and offered to talk to the birthday girl which added to the excitement for our Gabbi! I asked Katie if her outfit would be appropriate for a children's party and her answer was a reassuring yes! Sixteen girls and I were ready for the princess who came right on time ! The children were mesmerized by such a poised and lovely young lady. She danced with the girls, painted faces and even took time to sing Happy Birthday to our girl. The party was a success thanks to your great choice! Thank you so much Matt! I gave your number to two other mothers!

Your staff member was courteous, clean, friendly and made suggestions to help my visit run smoothly. The costume was in immaculate condition. So many times in the past when renting characters from other companies they have been soiled, dirty etc. I could not believe the level of service for the price I paid. It was affordable and well worth every penny. Thank you for taking such pride in your company and the service you provide. It is refreshing to see that there are companies that still care about providing top notch service.

Your superheroes were such a hit last year at our Ryan's Quest Fest ... the committee asked if I'd reach out to you again this year to see if anyone wanted to stop by dressed from Character Visits. This year our event is on Sunday, June 2nd 2013. The hours are 12pm-6pm. It will be at the same place - Tall Cedars Grove in Yardville, NJ. We do not have a superhero theme this year and would welcome any type of characters that you would want to showcase at our event if interested.

Thank you Matt for your prompt response, I am forwarding this to my daughter, it sounds great, and I read on a few reviews about the Ryan's Quest benefit that was done by the characters from your company, and knowing Ryan's family personally, I can see that the benefit was a true success, also my daughter went to school with Heather Sconza, the person who sent the e-mail complimenting your group on the wonderful and heartfelt job done regarding Ryans' Quest..
I am sure they my duaghter Courtney will get in touch with you, as soon as they finalize the time etc. and book the place in Society Hill..and hopefully it will be affordable for them (my daughter is currently unemployed), so we will try and help them out as much as possible.
My granddaughter gets so excited whenever she sees Min - nie Mouse on tv, so that is why they are looking for that character to entertain the kids, as well as my granddaughter. The children will range in age from 1yr. to 7 yrs. and as i said , there will not be that many children present.
Thank you again Matt, and I will definitely pass the word on to not only my daughter, but to all of my friends who are grandparents as well, with many many grandchildren...
Good Luck and God Bless,

The event is going to be held at the same place on the campus of West Chester University in downtown West Chester.

July 1st, 2012 Hi, Just wanted to thank Lynne for an AWESOME job Sunday as El ;'mo at our daughter’s 2nd birthday party. She was completely professional and all smiles despite the near 100 degree heat and power outage we experienced with the recent storm.

You guys are the best. Thanks! Jason Jaworski
I just wanted to praise Lynne. She was a fabulous ba rney. We loved having her at my son’s birthday party 6/24/12. She was so kind to my son and the other kids. She even posed for lots of pics! Kids loved barney so much! I will definitely use your services again!Thanks Again,Virginia Quakertown, PA

I booked Abb,.p;y and El 'mo - with Matt for Saturday, June 2, 2012 in Pittsburgh, PA for my granddaughter’s 2nd birthday party. Everything was perfect. The two entertainers were on time and my granddaughter loved them. She was hesitant in the past to have her face painted, but was willing to have her hands done at the suggestion of Natalie, who was one of the entertainers. I’m so sorry, I can’t remember her partner’s name, but they were both great. It was a very small party – mostly adults and a couple of children, but my granddaughter was thrilled with both Abby and El mo. Thank you and your team – this was a positive experience for us.Linda Satzger
5.20.12 Hello Matt,Thank YOU for your professionalism with very little notice. You were able to create a magical birthday party. Minney was sensational. She made the party over the top.

We could not have been happier with our Character Visits experience for our son’s 4th birthday on May 12th 2012. The performer arrived early, and was very courteous and professional. He spent lots of time as “Steve Wayne, Bat man’s brother” before he transformed himself into the dark knight. He did face painting and tattoos with the children, and was great with them. Then the entertainment began, and our Bat man was amazing! My son and his friends had the best time playing games, dancing, and learning how to be a superhero. I highly recommend Character Visits … Jen Altman

Hi Matt!Thanks again for providing Mickey (Lynne) on Saturday April 21st, for our son’s 3rd birthday party! Though our son was slow to warming up to Mic y, he had a great time! He danced with Mic(and mommy), took pictures with Mickey and kissed his nose! :) Once again (as this was our second booking with your company), Lynn was professional, fun, kind, and great with the children. As I shared with Lynn, we really appreciate that your costumes are so realistic. You have a great team! :)Thanks again! We’ll be sure to book for another party! :)Amy B. P.S. Feel free to use the pictures on your site for advertising. I included the plain Minnie in case you want to use it as an example of your Mickey costume. :)

March 18th 2012 Lynne was EXCELLENT! She opened with 30-minutes of face-painting for the kids, and then got changed into her suit which far exceeded my expectations. She danced with the kids and especially my 2-year old daughter who’s birthday it was. At the end of the 30-minutes, my daughter did not want to let her go! With all of the kids, deserts and presents yesterday, all my daughter did was talk about E l-m0 She even asked this morning (the day after) if she was gone! This really left an impression on her and it was the best gift we could have given her. Thank you so much! Joe Barbo

Dear Matt n James, thank you very much for sending an AMAZING S;'[pider m an on my son’s 4th birthday party on 2.12.12. James was an excellent performer and was able to get all the attentions and admiration from all the kids and also from adults!!! During face painting, one girl asked James to paint a princess on her hand, instead of saying, “No, I dont do princesses, I only do super heroes,” he thought for a couple of seconds then searched for pictures of princesses online and was able to provide a princess painting on her hand!! We truly appreciate a guy like that who is open and goes beyond what he is comfortable with in order to please and entertain everybody. He was also very polite and well mannered. Thank you very much James and Character-Visits.com!! You are the Best!! We are so happy to have found you on the internet. We will definitely recommend you to my friends and use you again in the future. Thank you again for providing an excellent professional service to make everybody so happy and made my son’s day!!Sincerely, Sakura Staudinger

Abb ey (Cathy) came to my daughter's 1st birthday party today. It was simply amazing! Cathy worked so hard and was such an absolute pleasure! It really made my daughter's party special. Please relay this e-mail to her as a note of appreciation. She did a tremendous job. I'm so glad I utilized your company for the party.
Thanks again, Arlene
Just wanted to thank you Matt and Bar;'-=ney (Lynne) for such a FANTASTIC day!!!! My granddaughter was absolutely THRILLED!!!! It was definitely a moment!!!!! Lynne was wonderful - she danced with my granddaughter and with the other children, posed for pictures, and definitely made the day super special. We will definitely use your services in the future (probably a princess theme for next year) and we highly recommend your services to everyone. We couldn't be more pleased!!!!!
We just wanted to say how happy we were with "Dominic" our Easter Bunny on Saturday. We had our daughter's 1st Birthday Party in Princeton NJ and the kids just loved him. He was so courteous and friendly to everyone and the costume was out of this world
.by far the cutest Easter bunny costume I have seen. Everyone was raving about it. Thanks for making my daughter's birthday so special. If you ever need to use me for a reference please feel free.

Hi Character Visits,
You sent Lynne out on Sat May 7th as Bey for my daughters 2nd birthday. I was very hesitant about your company since I was unable to look at picture of the costume before I booked Bar ney. I am SO glad I chose you! Lynne was amazing and the Barn ey costume was GREAT!!! I can't begin to tell you how wonderful it was and how much fun my daughter had. You guys are wonderful and I plan on using you again in the future. I would also recommend your company to ANYONE looking for a character!!
Good morning, like last year again this year was a big hit with "BE;[ -0-LLE". The children thought she was awesome!!! She was very sweet, friendly, professional and also adorable.... She also brought your business cards which I distributed thru out the day, and this morning put some in the Deli I stop at ... I can't thank you enough for all that you have done, and again made Cassie a very happy little girl.
Thanks, Kathy Griffis

Just a quick note to say thank you soooooooooooo much for sending Bel=-0le over for my daughters 4th birthday party on Sunday! All the girls loved her – Theresa was very sweet and helpful and kind to all the children in attendance. She was the perfect Princess!! At first my daughters was nervous – but I think she got used to her after a bit – one little girl didn’t want her to leave! I’ve attached a couple of pictures taken at the party. I hope you can open this link because she was so great – we took about 100 pictures of her with all the kids – and the face painting was a huge hit! She came at the perfect time as well – just about to rain on the pool party!! She did the cake – helped with the piñata and hopped on her plane back to Disney! Well, that’s what the girls think anyway!!
Again thank you very much!
Sorry that it took me so long to write this email, but Cathy was amazing @ my daughter's birthday party on July 3,2010. The way that she got the kids to interact with her was amazing. My daughter was afraid of the costume @ first, but Cathy got her to warm up to her about halfway threw. I have already recommended you guys to my friends who have children birthday parties coming up. I will be contacting you guys for next year. Thanks a bunch.
Bat an was AWESOME!!! I would highly recommend Character Visits and use again.
