New England Reptile Shows came for my son’s 7th birthday party. We had a group of 13 kids (ages 5-7) who were highly anticipating the day, and they we definitely not disappointed! I can’t praise them enough for a job well done.
For starters, Jodi and Herb were courteous, prompt and set up all the animals very quickly. It was immediately obvious that they loved all of the reptiles! Their iguana, sweet pea, was an huge hit with the children. He stayed on the table throughout the show and was very happy to have all of the children pet him. He even ventured off the table to climb on my husband, it was great!
We chose to have the full educational show, which was just over an hour, which was a perfect amount of time. The children had the opportunity to hold every reptile, with the exception of just a few, but for those, the reptile was put in a cage on the floor and the kids took turns reaching in to pet. They even got to feed the turtle Kale and watch the iguana eat his banana. Jodi and Herb kept them engaged and they learned a lot about each reptile. They brought a great variety and kept the kids guessing as to what was next.
Do you have a child that enjoys snakes? Well, this is their show. I’ve never seen so many children delighted to hold snakes in my life. Every child got a turn to hold all of the snakes- big snakes, little snakes, king snakes…they were all there. It was really incredible. Jodi and Herb were so comfortable in letting the children enjoy the reptiles, it was a great element that I didn’t expect!
My son will never forget this birthday, and I am certain his friends won’t either.
Thank you New England Reptile Shows!!!
