I have to admit I thought the show is very expensive - but the delivery was of very high standards! I also appreciated the fact the performers arrived well in advance to make sure the set up is done on time.
Your teams were very friendly, and made sure the kids had a lot of fun!
I would definitely recommend you to my friends!!!
With warmest regards,

Thank Professor Messy for making it a wonderful night to remember, for the children and us.

The success of the event was made possible by the professionalism of your staff who was both skillful and entertaining in coming up with creative balloon sculptures.
Much as the event attendees enjoyed the sculptures, our staff were also similarly thrilled by his balloon sculptures.
We look forward to future opportunities to work together.
Once again, we appreciate the participation of "Mr Bottle's Kids Party" at the event.

Also a big thank you for the facepainter who stayed longer than she was required to and N2(Balloon Sculptor) for ensuring all the kids enjoyed themselves and stopped bothering their parents for quite a period.
So all in all, it was a great success and my client left on that day a satisfied client.
Thank you very much. :-)

Mr Bottle had such a great time in Shanghai! For the last show, Huang Junjie (黄俊杰), a Taiwanese magician and Mr Bottle decided to swap acts and see how they handle it. Of course, nobody realise that, but the magicians and crew were laughing non-stop when Mr Bottle try to copy Junjie's lines.
Here's the video, plus other interesting clips at Happy Valley!

1) Do you know that there are only 5 official Merlions in Singapore and 1 of them is in Mount Faber. You can see 1 other big Merlion from Mount Faber too!
2) Spot a "ship" that is "stranded" on the top of this "mountain".
3) Spot a red and white communication tower... don't mistaken it for Tokyo Towers!
4) A lot of people didn't know this beautiful building (below) is in Mount Faber (Pender Road). It's the Danish Seaman Church!
5) Lastly, you can find a few of Singapore's unique Black and White colonial houses on the way up.

Families can rent bicycles cheaply there at one of the many rental shops and they will even provide maps for free. However, there's are certain steep slopes that one must look out for!
My personal favourite is House No. 1 or the English Cottage. Now restored, it shows information about Chek Jawa, one of the nature gems of Singapore.
You can try to spot different animals like wild boars (there's one domesticated if you cannot find any in the wild), mudskipper and a crab with a big claw!

In fact, I love the outdoor gardens! Kids can easily spend about an hour playing around the outdoor exhibit. My favourite is the dragon optical illusion in which one can see the dragon head move! The garden is open 24 hours! (of course it gets a little too dark at night!)

One can find really unique bottle-shaped trees native to Australia. Families can do activities like fishing and of course, eating at their famous seafood restaurants there!

A trip supermarket can be made fun too! Create a shopping list for your kids and ask them to find the items in the shortest time possible! If you have 2 or more kids, you can have a competition!
Of course, there are some very important rules you must tell the kids like no running, no disturbing other shoppers, etc!

Bookings for Mr Bottle are still open for 9 Oct onwards! (Call 65155921) In the meantime, Happy Children's Day for all the kids in the world! Enjoy and be happy!
(Back to more kids activity in a while!)

I think the best place to see it is at Changi Coast Road. You can actually see the underbelly of the planes at the edge of the runway.
You can park at the Tanah Merah Country Club or rent a bicycle and cycle all the way from East Coast Park!

Well, it's a small island but it's a great place to spend an idly time with your family. (Avoid the pilgrimage seasons when devotees go there in droves.) Bring a picnic basket and mat and set up tent by the beach! Kids can freely run around too.
You can tell your kids the legend of Kusu Island as you arrive at the Island. (Legend has it that a giant sea turtle turned into an island to save 2 shipwrecked sailors - a Malay and a Chinese. As an act of thanks, the two men built a Chinese temple, Malay shrine and a huge turtle sculpture on the island. Source: New Asia Singapore)

We will start a one month series on fun, interesting and educational places that kids can go... (with their parents!). If you have ideas, email us at firstname.lastname@example.org
During the school holidays, Mr Bottle performed at Bukit Panjang Plaza for the kids! It's not the usual "magic on the stage" but street magic! It's a great experience because magic is done right up close for everyone! We had such a big crowd on some of the sessions! (Usually street magic is for a small group!)
I like the caption too: "The famous magician, Mr Bottle, will astound you with his bag of tricks, as long as you can find him."
Indeed, some kids came running around looking for Mr Bottle! Some shoppers were probably wondering who is man in Black and White!

I was just beginning to draft an email to Pamela (marketing) to help convey my heartfelt thanks to you for putting up such a fabulous show for my Asher last Saturday. Your show lingers in our mind even now.
What other parents have posted on the web is true - your company is indeed reliable and high standards is assured. We were all pleased with the service you have rendered.
Just like many parents who embark on throwing a party for their kids, we were concerned about making the party entertaining for both the kids and adults, and also to make the party a special one for our son. It was a trying journey looking for a company to run a magic show and provide some other forms of entertainment such as balloon sculpting, face painting etc. The main worry was to engage someone who doesn't turn up promptly, deliver less-than-satisfactory service or worse, make us lose face for being too corny, impatient etc.
The good feeling I got from your company started when I began corresponding with Pamela, your marketing agent, about the range of services your company provides. Pamela is not only pleasant to talk to, she is also patient and forthcoming in helping me understand the services your company provides thus enabling me to make informed decision on the package to sign up for. She even helped me find out where to get the Spongebob pinata for the party and after checking with a few stores, that was the last one available in Singapore!
Then, came the party. Right from the moment we met, it was a comfortable and reassuring feeling to have engaged you for the party. You were so patient with the rowdy kids and professional in your magic tricks and balloon sculpting that there was none at the party who was not awed by you. What impressed me most was how you helped me settle the kids when I was still busy setting up the party and later coordinated with my timing to make the entertainment captivating for everyone.
What I like is your personalised service. Not only are you good in your balloon sculpting and magic tricks, you were able to account for every kid at the party and approached them to 'place an order' for a balloon sculpture. That was beyond my expectation as I was about to do so for you. In addition, during the show, I could see very clearly how you handle the emotional aspects of our young audience and not to turn their into a laughing stock for the adults. As I am someone who research much into child psychology, I am very particular about ensuring every kid's physical and emotional welfare is taken care of. You have demonstrated much understanding of child psychology through your treatment towards them: gently managing the active ones; constantly encouraging the shy ones; and patiently answering the inquisitive ones.
You have simply managed to take care of the young and old at the party and everyone sang praises about you that night after you left. Now my younger son, Benedict, has already told me that he wants you for his 8-year-old party and we do not know if he can so that long to see you again. =)
It has been a great pleasure meeting you.

I will certainly recommend this to my friends. If you have more and different tricks, we will be happy to have you over again.

Frankly speaking, initially I felt your price was kinda steep as compared to the market. However, the Dino thingy was something that really attracts me with the fact that my boy loves Dino. Now, I think it is really worth it!! It's a memorable party. Especially, Marco's magic. The kids still can't get over it. Some even commented that this is the best party that they ever attended!!!

Thank you for helping us make Krishas' 1st birthday a fantastic event! I was very pleased in engaging your company, you were able to connect with the kids, even if they were very young.
The sound system was a big plus point because I've been to birthday parties where the party was a complete mess just because the host couldn't control the situation. In terms of games, I preferred the games you played in the second half of the show, where there was more interaction.
To sum up, you did a very good job! Looking forward to seeing you in our next event! Thanks(Note from Mr Bottle's Kids Party: This party was challenging because it consists mostly of young kids who are about 2 years old! Our experience in dealing in young kids definitely makes a difference!)
