About Happy Bright Kids

  1. 17 Years Of Experience We started Happy Bright Kids entertainment (formerly California Puppets) over 17 years ago with a simple vision in mind, to help kids learn while also making them laugh. We were founded by Jungle Joe, real name Naceur. Originally rather than being a kids party entertainer, Jungle Joe produced educational entertainment for kids on videotape using puppetry. These videos taught the basics of the alphabet, numbers, shapes, and other subjects important to early child development. Shortly after performing a free puppet show for kids at a local community event, Jungle Joe found his passion for live puppet performance as a party entertainer.
  2. Our Goal Since then we have been offering kids party entertainment for over 17 years in the Bay Area. In fact, you may have seen us at a kids birthday party or a library. Despite all the time passed, our goal and vision has remained the same. We have a passion for performance, laughter, and sharing knowledge. We believe that our children are our future, and that they are entrusted to us as adults. We aim to help children grasp favorable, informative, encouraging ideas and concepts that will have positive influence on their lives. Our kids entertainment is created based around this ideal.
  3. Our Passion Our passion for puppetry is not just limited to performing and educating, we even have a passion for the art of making puppets. All of our puppets are made at the Happy Bright Kids workshop, along with our props, stages and outfits. We even ocassionally sell our puppets to other professional performers. Since beginning to offer kids entertainment, we have done shows at a countless number of kids party and family events, preschools, elementary schools, libraries, fairs, festivals, and more! We have been honored to be invited to offer our unique brand of kids entertainment at Six Flags Discovery Kingdom, the Oakland and San Francisco Zoos, Google’s Bring Your Child To Work Day, Synopsis, and Adobe.
  4. We Offer We now offer a wide variety of kids entertainment, utilizing not only puppets and magic, but also bubbles, balloon animals, face painting and interactive games. For elementary schools and libraries, we also offer STEM-based kids entertainment.
