Have a Jolly Holiday with Mary Poppins at Your Party

Okay, parents: You’ve been to a thousand ‘Frozen’ parties and you’ve done the princess party thing for what seems like ages. So what do you do now? Has your list of possible party theme options for your kid been exhausted? If so, let’s have you take a short quiz to find out if we can help you check the party entertainment off your list for this year’s birthday:

  • Do you love children’s literature of the early 20th century, like “Peter Pan”, and long to expose your own kids to the classics?
  • Do you dream of living in the era of “Downton Abbey” and wish there was a way to experience it first-hand?
  • Do you fantasize about flying away on the wind using a magical umbrella?

If you answered yes to one or more of the above, then our ‘Mary Poppins’ look (and sound) alike is the lady for you!

Our singing ‘Mary Poppins’ character performers are classically trained singers (such as the cast member featured here). We have 3 cast members who can portray this character, each one with a legit soprano voice, capable of the proper British dialect required to authentically bring miss ‘Poppins’ to life. In fact, one of our cast members even played the English nanny at a famous Orlando theme park!

Watch and hear this cast member perform as ‘Mary Poppins’ in the video below.

Now, you may be asking yourself, “What ages is Mary Poppins right for? I love classics like Poppins, but will my 5 year old?” The answer is yes: Jolly Holiday Poppins, in her lacy white and red park dress, is excellent for ages 5-8 years old (on average; some younger, and some older children will also enjoy her company).

You might also be thinking to yourself, “But what kind of party theme goes with Mary Poppins?” That’s an easy one: remember the carousel in the motion picture version of the story? You could have your party at the Santa Monica Carousel. Or if the Westside of Los Angeles is too far for those of you in Burbank or Glendale, there’s also the Griffith Park Merry-Go-Round. And if you do opt for the Griffith Park location, remember to take picture of your birthday girl and Miss Poppins together in front of the ride to commemorate the moment when Walt Disney sat on a park bench and watched his own daughters on the merry-go-round while envisioning his dream of Disneyland for the very first time!

But no worries if carousels aren’t your thing. A sweet, intimate party at the park or a backyard carnival, or boardwalk themed party will work, too. Just think bright, classic colors like red, yellow, and blue. And as far as activities go, ‘Mary Poppins’ will lead an assortment of interactive group games, festive dancing, and sing-along fun, including a few of her patented magic nanny tricks that will leave your kids believing she could very well slide up the staircase bannister if she wanted to.

And the very proper, yet silly nature of this character is a charming combination: she is at once able to direct and lead children, whilst also lending a sense of humor to any situation. Plus, nobody teaches good manners like an English nanny. In fact, by the end of her performance, you may very well be begging her to move in with your own brood!

7 Reasons Why Snow White is the Party Princess You’re Wishing For

If it seems like everyone in your child’s circle of friends is still on the ‘Frozen’ party bandwagon, why not opt for the original snow princess instead and have a classic fairytale party with miss ‘Snow White’?!

There is much to love about this young princess who can seemingly talk to animals, but here are seven things about ‘Snow White’ that make her the perfect party princess for little ones 2-4 years old.

  1. ‘Snow White’ isn’t afraid to be silly. I mean, you would have to have a good sense of humor to live amicably with a group of seven men, right? And in turn, it’s that silliness in ‘Snow White’ which makes her a great fit for girls and boys.                                                                                                                  Snow White princess character play date in Studio City, CA Snow White princess play date in Studio City, CA
  2. If there were an award for Most Patient Princess, ‘Snow White’ would win. See #1, of course, but also think about how long she slept there in that glass box just waiting to be awoken with true loves kiss. It’s this patience, especially with the smallest of critters (tiny humans), which makes ‘Snow White’ the envy of every pre-school teacher in the land.                                                                                                       Snow White princess character play date in Sherman Oaks, CA
  3. She’s got the voice of a blue bird. There’s nothing that soothes a wild beast (such as a tiny human) like a sweet song, and this soprano has one of the best legit singing voices of all the fairytale princesses.
  4. Skipping is her favorite. This princess isn’t stuck inside a stuffy castle. She loves being outside, enjoys a good jaunt through the woods, and is happy to dance the day away with her little friends. Snow White princess playdate in Los Angeles, CA
  5. ‘Snow White’ is definitely a foodie. Legend has it, this princess makes a mighty delicious gooseberry pie, whatever that is. If there’s anyone who can help get your kiddo to eat their lunch, it’s this girl for sure.
  6. She actually enjoys cleaning. Leave it to ‘Snow White’, the most positive princess of all, to spin a chore like scrubbing the floor into an activity that’s actually fun. Want to get your kids to put their toys away? Let ‘Snow White’ teach them to whistle while they work!                                                                           Singing Snow White princess party character in Los Angeles.
  7. She has the biggest heart. Whether it’s a baby deer, a bunny rabbit, or a diamond-mining dwarf, this empathetic princess would adopt all of the creatures if she could. In fact, she is so kind that she even lets her furry friends inside the cottage. Here’s a fun idea: pair her performance at your party with a petting zoo! Either way, your kiddos will surely enjoy the company of the most gentle of princesses, ‘Snow White’.                  Singing Snow White princess party character in Los Angeles.
