Thank you Ian and Amy for the perfect experience!" Mrs S
"We have just had the most amazing experience for my daughter's 8th birthday party. Ian was fantastic with the kids and is great at encouraging the kids to touch and feel the insects/reptiles even if they don't want to hold them - he certainly is very patient! I can't recommend Crazy Creatures enough. A very memorable experience - Thank you so much!" Mrs B
"Thank you SO SO much for doing Zachary's Party this evening! Absolutely enjoyed 100% by all! Being the mum of 3 boys I would recommend this party as something a bit different and was right up their street! Ian was brilliant at keeping the children interested (a big room of 6 year olds and below) and full of information about the animals!
The crazy creature team were SO supportive with the entire process of party planning and definitely went beyond the call of duty! Hugely recommend and hope to see them again at a future party! Thank you, Mrs M. "
"We saw Ian today with his insects and reptiles at SandyBalls holiday village in The New Forest. He was excellent in his presentation and interaction with the children. We've been to a couple of shows like this but Ian really stood out in his laid back, good humoured approach with encouraged our nervous child to be involved with his creatures!
Highly recommended ! Thank you." Mrs C
"Just a little email to say thank you for the brilliant party on Sunday 5th November. My daughter and her friends had a wonderful time and enjoyed all the animals and learning about them. My daughter is totally animal mad so this was perfect for her and she especially enjoyed getting a nose lick from the lizard! I had so many parents say how much their children enjoyed the party and would want to book you as it was such a unique and great party idea. Thank you for everything will be recommending you." Mrs C
"Amy, Ian, Thank you so much for a fantastic party on Saturday. Solomon absolutely loved all the animals and has taken your spider book and some photos of him with the creatures into school today as his show and tell. Not sure, but think the adults may have enjoyed it more than the kids, I certainly loved it!!!
Many thanks again, it was wonderful." Mrs H
"I just wanted to send you an email to say thank you so much for the workshop you delivered to Year Six last week at IntoUniversity. The children really, really enjoyed themselves, with many of them saying at Graduation that it was their favourite part of the week. All of the adults were equally impressed as well, and it was fantastic to meet the animals, hear about how you care for them, and also get to handle such a variety of animals. Here are some of the quotes from the children's evaluation forms about your visit:
"It was awesome holding creatures that I didn't know existed before."
"Crazy creatures was the best part of the whole week"
"I got to hold a snake - it was amazing."
"Crazy Creatures taught me that a gecko's tail will fall off when it's scared."
"I got to hold a tarantula - so cool!"
"Ian came to visit our Year 4 and 5 classes with a fantastic selection of creatures. He had every one of them eating out of the palm of his hand (children, not the animals!) and they learned a huge amount from the session. He has a fantastic manner with the children, and was incredibly patient in helping them to overcome their fears. Would highly recommend." Stewart Bell – Chafyn Grove School.
My lasting memory will be when the snake licked my hand! Henry LB
I really didn’t want to hold the cockroach, but I faced my fears and I held it anyway. It felt very odd. Izzy C
The funniest bit was when the millipede did a poo on the man’s hand. Arthur K
The owl was epic because it looked like it was doing some funky dancing. Grace W
The funniest thing was seeing everybody’s faces as they touched the animals. Freddie H
I thought that Owls could twist their heads right round, but I learned that if they did that, their heads would screw right off. Grace W
I am really scared of snakes, but I still touched it and I am glad I did. Azaria H
The Orchid Mantis was so epic, it had pink and while legs and looked exactly like a plant! Lottie C
At first I was terrified, but then when I held it I got much less scared. George D
The best bit was where I saw the owl dance on your hand. I had so much fun, thank you so much. Ella L.
I learned to be calm around animals that I would not usually be very fond of! Aoife G
Before I handled these animals I was a bit afraid to touch them, but I overcame my fear and don’t mind holding them now. Aoife G
I felt sorry for the gecko because when it is scared it loses its tail. Aoife G
My favourite animal was the python, because of its super-smooth belly. Harry C
The bearded dragon was my favourite, because of the texture of its skin: It felt so strange! Esme H
There was a MASSIVE millipede that I stroked. He skin was rock hard. The whole experience was brilliant! Joe H
I liked the Orchid Mantis because of its pretty camouflage and not-so-pretty eating habits. Jamie D

"Thank you so much for an amazing morning! The children and the adults loved it! Ian was brilliant with the children and answered all our questions and we got to hold so many different creatures. I would totally recommend a VIP visit. Thank you again" Mrs G
"Thank you so much to crazy creatures for being so wonderfully engaging today at Sebastian's 6th birthday party. He loved meeting all the animals, particularly the snake and the owl. He said it was the perfect party. One happy boy!" Mrs S
"My daughter E (plus her Dad, friend, and my sister) came along to a VIP session at Monkey Madness on Saturday 6th January and I just want to express my thanks to you as they loved every minute of it. This is probably one of the best presents I could've bought for my daughter as I know how much she loves snakes and creepy crawlies. It was a thoroughly enjoyable experience for all and they were really impressed by your knowledge, and they learnt so much about the animals from this experience. They loved being able to hold and touch the animals in a relaxed, controlled environment and E was obviously put at ease as she was adamant before she went that she was not going near a tarantula.....however I have photographic evidence of a tarantula on her hands!
Thank you so much for providing this brilliant and informative session."
"Thank you so much Ian for bringing your crazy creatures to Mason's 6th birthday today, he along with the other children and adults thought it was amazing, and the best party EVER!!!! Your owl, snake and gecko we're a huge hit 🐍." Mrs W
