Our Story

We take the fantasy world characters we all grew up with and turn them into real life people standing before you and your guests. We offer spectacular interactive theme parties and entertainment for your child’s birthday party or any other special occasion in Grand Rapids, MI and surrounding areas.  Our Facebook page shows our current characters that are available for immediate booking, but we will continue to grow our list monthly. If you have an event you would like to book us for in advance with a certain character(s) in mind, feel free to email us and we will do our best to make it happen for you by the date needed. Remember, we don't only do princesses and superheroes for children, if you're having a themed party for adults, or if you have a holiday event and need people dressed to support that day such as, St. Patty's , Easter, Independence Day, Christmas, Halloween, Sporting Events, AND the list goes on... we can supply characters for them all to fit your needs!
