Thank you so much for today you truly made Amelia’s birthday very special. Anna and Elsa were fantastic, very attentive and did an amazing job keeping all the children occupied for the entire 2 hours. So many of the children were mesmerised by them, Very professional and very amazing patience. Such great value for money. Katie, Great Dunmow, April 2015
