What Our Customers Are Saying.

kids birthday partyVaishali


kids birthday party: We had invited HBK for my son’s 4th birthday party. 3 little pigs show was amazing, kids and the adults loved it. I had a few requests to HBK before confirming the puppet show, to tailor it to younger (4 year old) and smaller audience, shorten it to 30 mins. They were very accommodating and honored my requests. On the day of the puppet show, performer came on time, set up the stage and had planned where to make the kids sit for the best view. He did it all by himself without any help from us. He started the show right on time, the puppets were funny, voices were realistic, he engaged kids throughout the puppet show by making them part of the story. The best part is, he spent a few minutes at the end introducing story characters, showing how they make puppets, and how he makes them talk. Kids loved interacting with the puppets off the stage.
It is a great kids party entertainment for kids birthday party or any other kids events!

My Name is Reggie Brooks of Radio Disney. After going through our recaps.
I found that your puppet show had the most people in attendance and that the parents and kids absolutely loved your puppet show. Obviously you were a smash hit last year and I would love to invite you back again this year if you are available.

I just wanted to follow up on the puppet show you recently put on for the Sunnyvale community. It was a terrific show for both the children and adults, we all had a fantastic time. I did pass your information around to the other coordinators within the city. Also, can you please direct me to the section on your page where I can leave a comment/testimonial. I would like to share our experience with other organizations or families seeking kids entertainment for their child.
Thanks again for a terrific puppet show,

We wanted to thank you again for the awesome performance at Jack’s 3rd birthday party yesterday. I was really puzzled on how to put on the party this year. Your professionalism saved the day. The Jungle theme was a wonderful suggestion. Thank you so much.

Sofie 7th birthday party entertainmentSofie Vande


We have enjoyed your puppet show for two years in a row now (5th and 6th birthday party) and my daughter would love to have you over again on her 7th birthday party. The previous years, you did a great job entertaining for both my daughter’s and son’s (twin) birthday party.
At the age of 7, the kids feel pretty strongly about inviting their own friends now. So, this time, we would have about 13 girls for Olivia’s birthday party.

Thank you for another great puppet show this week at the Livermore Public Library! When I asked my story time audience today if they’ve been to the show, you should have seen their eyes light up when they said, ” Jungle Joe!’ They had such a great time watching you and joining in. As always, you are very pleasant & easy to work with, and you really added something special to our summer reading program. I would definitely recommend you to anyone looking for a funny, entertaining puppet show program.
Thanks again!

We invited Happy Bright Kids for our daughter’s first kids birthday party and Joe put on a FANTASTIC show!!!! It was a huge success. The puppet show is very impressive, educational and unusual not only for kids but for adults as well. All the kids were engaged the entire show and interacted with the characters during the puppet show. Joe is amazing and very professional to work with.


Nicole birthday party entertainmentNicole


I saw Joe perform at a 3 year old’s kids birthday party. He was great. The 3 year olds had a good time, the 5 and 6 year olds enjoyed the puppet show the most and had an absolute blast, and it was also great fun for the adults. Joe knows how to cater to his audience and different ages and make a fun puppet show for all. Highly recommended.

I’ve been meaning to get online and send you and email to thank you for the wonderful puppet show you put on for my son. As you could clearly see, he absolutely LOVED it and keeps asking me to replay the video that I took of it.
You are very talented and I truly appreciate you making my sons 2nd birthday so special. I will certainly sign your guestbook and be sure to pass your name along to anybody that might be looking for some kids birthday party entertainment.
Many thanks and have a healthy and happy new year.

Gardner Elementary School EntertainmentJill Fraka


We certainly enjoyed your puppet show last week. The performance kept a large group of wiggly kindergarten and preschoolers thoroughly engaged for the entire 45 minutes and more of the show. It was very impressive. We decided to have Happy Bright Kids as our last “on-site field trip” and we are very glad we did. We highly recommend your puppet show as a way to enrich the school assembly programs and after school programs.
Thank-you again!

We had jungle joe for my daughter’s 1st birthday party. This was the first time we were going to have him perform. We had read so many great reviews hence our expectations were high. I have to say that the puppet show he put together exceeded our expectations. It was based on a theme, was educational and at the same time so much fun. Kids just couldn’t stop laughing and adults were very engaged from beginning to end. I would highly recommend him for a kids birthday party or any other kids party entertainment.

Thank you so much for making our son’s 4th Birthday such a happy time. Even though it was back in April, kids and parents are still talking about it almost 3 months later. We were amazed to see how your puppet show captivated and engaged over 30 youngsters for 45 min with joy, laughter, and educational bits.
The characters you’ve created are colorful and engaging. We all had a greate time. Needless to say we recommend you whole heartedly. You are a blessing!

San Jose public library entertainmentLeslie


Oh my! Tortoise and the Hare: Race to Read was a wonderful show. It supported our library summer reading program at San Jose public library perfectly (www.sjpl.org). Jungle Joe made sure to mention that reading makes us all winners – in fact that theme was a BIG part of his puppet show. :O) His puppets, voices, and skilled ventriloquism had kids and adults laughing uproariously. In addition I recommend Joe for his useful communication with me at the library before and after the puppet show. Rarely have I had such a feel good email exchange with a performer and I have booked and hosted hundreds over the years. Great job Jungle Joe!


Amy San Francisco public libraryAmy Perry


Wow! What a fantastic show. Thanks for coming to the library and putting on a funny, entertaining, and educational show. The kids had such a great time (and the parents did too). Jungle Joe was lots of fun and comes highly recommended. Thanks again!
