1. Lucy Sparkles & Friends
If you’ve been in Singapore a while, chances are you’ve heard of Lucy Sparkles & Friends. As well as being awesome kids party entertainers (we can vouch for them), they also provide high-quality drama, music and dance classes. Originating from the UK, you can expect uber-creative and imaginative activities to enthral your little partygoers. There’s everything from singing, dancing, glitter tattoos, party games, bubbles, and so much more! Is your little one a huge fan of a certain character? There are theme packages too! We love that they also offer sustainable options such as eco-friendly pass the parcel.
Details: Starting from $275 for a 45-minute booking. Suitable for 0-6 years old. Options for 45 minutes, one hour and two hours.
2. Jellybean Party
If you’re after a one-stop shop for party entertainment, you can’t go wrong with Jellybean Party. They’ve got all options, from magic shows to hands-on interactive workshops (because who wants to attempt a slime-making workshop on their own?). There’s a huge range of packages for all ages and stages, including toddler packages and add-ons like pinatas and balloons (if you want to get all your planning done in one fell swoop).
Details: Starting from $320 for the economy party package (including interactive games and side entertainment like face painting). Suitable for a range of ages and various package durations are available.
3. Party Heart Singapore
Party Heart Singapore has your kids’ party entertainment all wrapped up with everything from magic shows to balloon sculpting and so much more! In fact, you’ll be hard-pressed not to find something here – from candy floss to bouncy castles. We like that they offer an a la carte price list alongside packages, so you can pick and choose what suits you without it getting too $$$.
Details: Starting from $150 for glitter tattoos/face painting (60 minutes). Packages start from $400. Suitable for a range of ages and various package durations are available.
4. Syrena – the Singapore-based mermaid
Here’s something a bit different when it comes to kids party entertainers, and it’s one for the mermaid fans out there – mermaid magic for Singapore-based mermaid, Syrena. As well as Syrena making an on-land appearance, your mini mermaids will also be treated to an activity of your choice: from storytelling and quizzes to a sparkly glitter tattoo session. There will also be mermaid swimming, pool games, and selfies galore! We’re in!
Details: Cost available on request. Suitable for all mermaid fans (but probably best suited to swimmers).
PartyAllo is ready to fulfil all your party needs for any theme, any time of the year. With a wide range of party packages covering a range of kids entertainers in Singapore, pick from balloon sculpting, face painting, henna tattoos or glitter tattoos. Add some spice to the party with a piñata, carnival game booths, mascots and even a magic show. For the more ‘mature’ teens, an epic NERF battle party should do the trick.
Details: Starting from $408 for a package.
6. Happier Singapore
Happier Singapore offers face and body painting services using quality FDA-certified, hypoallergenic paint and glitter suitable for all skin types. Kids and adults can turn into whatever they wish: butterflies, Spiderman, dragons… or have their fave characters painted on their arms. As a nice take-home gift or a fun party trick, Happier Singapore also does balloon sculpting – the twisters can create anything from cuddly elephants and poodles to princesses and superheroes.
Details: Starting from $238 for the Let’s paint and twist party package. Suitable for a range of ages and various package durations are available.
7. The Magic of Markson Kids Party
This one’s for die-hard magic fans: The Magic of Markson is a renowned magician in Singapore, thanks to his use of high-technology props, special effects and live birds. Choose from an interactive side-splitting comedy show with a drawing board illusion and audience participation. Or, a Vegas-style show with a 3D backdrop, LED light illusion and vanishing acts to keep your kids on the edge of their seats. It’s not just magic, though – there’s kids entertainment aplenty with balloon twisting, caricature, face painting, and more available!
8. Sweetheart the Clown
It’s not every day you see a female clown, much less one without all that make-up! In 2008, Sweetheart the Clown famously revamped her image and stopped using clown makeup to stop intimidating the little ones. As an accomplished ventriloquist, she also prides herself on being one of the fastest twisters in town, with an ability to twist a balloon into just about anything. A typical show of Sweetheart’s includes storytelling, mime, magic and fun balloons. We think this makes the perfect kids party entertainer!
