"The Show was an absolute hit with the kids and parents! They were a delight to deal with - professional but also very friendly! I would highly recommend them to all! We would book them in again in a heartbeat!"
"Highly recommended! Supports social skills, values and learning through play 10/10."
"Emily & Mario did a most wonderful job running the show during our daughter’s recent 7th birthday party. I practically could just concentrate on taking pictures and video while they had the girls (and a boy) entertained non-stop. They were definitely an excellent choice, couldn’t have been better!"
"Emily and Mario are amazing! They managed to keep a group of 3 and 5 year olds mesmerized for 1.5 hours with practically no assistance! To make things a little more complicated, the rain was on and off for the whole session so everyone was in and out of the apartment every few moments. Emily and Mario were friendly, entertaining and hard working! i would recommend them to anyone."
"My wife and I were quite stuck trying to come up with ideas for our daughter’s 3rd birthday, and found Pistachio on the web – and how glad we did! Emily and Mario are special! From parents’ point of view they were professional and able to modify the programme to suit our needs and we felt looked after, and they are clearly experienced kids entertainers so they just “clicked” with the kids and obviously the kids loved them. My daughter had a memorable birthday, and she still talks fondly about her day with Emily and Mario!"
"Mario and Emily were fantastic at my daughter’s 5th Birthday… we had shocking weather and very limited space for the 40 children they needed to entertain!! But, entertain they did, and fabulously! All children were happily occupied the whole time Emily and Mario were there, allowing me to relax and enjoy her party all the more!! Thank you so much, we have recommended you on to many other friends!"
"Thank you Prince Mario and Princess Emily, you were fantastic at my little girls first birthday. Amazing that you could keep all the kids entertained from the 1 year olds through to the older kids. So many games and fun things to do"
"Where do I begin, Tin Soldier Mario and Ballerina Emily definitely know how to entertain. An amazing time was had by all during my son’s third birthday with ages ranging from 3-10. Their outstanding organisational skills and passion to entertain children of all ages shines through. I was extremely amazed at how they kept the kids entertained for 1.5 hours and the evidence was clear – 100% participation from all the children, with the highlight clearly being the ‘Tug of War’ game and the gorgeous costumes….Thank you so much again Mario and Emily for making my son’s birthday a memorable one. On a final note, my daughter was thoroughly impressed with the funky tunes coming out of the speaker during musical statues. Pistachio Entertainment, Highly Recommended!"
"Emily and Mario were fantastic! Theír ballerina and toy soldier show was an excellent start to our circus party to celebrate my little boy’s 1st birthday. All the kids (and parents) were fully entertained and really enjoyed the show. It left my guests wanting more and talking about the show for the remainder of the party. Once the show was finished Emily and Mario entertained the children over lunch with balloons, face painting and then games which was a huge help to me and great fun for the kids. I will definitely consider using them again, and recommend them to anyone wanting high quality entertainment for their child’s party."
"Thankyou Emily & Mario for creating a fantastic atmosphere at my daughter Jacqueline’s 1st Birthday Party. 22 children was nothing for you.You were amazing, The Girls loved the Ballerina & the boys loved the Tin Soldier. A very clever concept The show was great, the costumes, great and definitely will rebook with you for my other children! You both are amazing people with a natural gift- Thank you and i look forward to seeing you soon. Natalie"
"Mario and Emily were just amazing!!!!!! I am glad that I found them for my son’s 5th birthday. Kids as well as adults just loved Ballerina dancing and Tin soldier drumming. Kids were attracted towards Mario for his magics. Both did the wonderful job keeping children busy for full 2hrs. Emily’s skill of face painting was just flawless. I am so happy and satisfied with their performance that I would like to invite them for all occasions. Since Mario and Emily came together, it made all more worthwhile."
"Emily and Mario just made my little girls 3rd birthday all that bit more exciting, enjoyable and fun! They provided a wonderful entertainment program that the children (and adults) all loved! They were both very professional and accommodating even amongst the chaos of excitable toddlers!! They really did make the party more enjoyable for my daughter and all her friends and definitely a lot easier for us!! I would recommend them to everyone!!"
"Emily and Mario were great at our son’s 4 year birthday party. They entertained 16 active children and all the kids had lots of fun. They even got some of the shy kids to join it too. Thanks for making my son’s birthday party lots of fun."
"I am very happy with my choice of entertainers for my kids’ 4th birthday party. Totally engaging non-stop entertainment!! With all the games, dances, songs and competitions Mario and Emily were the stars of the party! And as per my request they kept those activities and the music to go along with the theme of the party (as well as the costumes they both turned up in!). Highly recommended!"
"I was so very impressed with Emily & Mario from Pistachio Entertainment who engaged 20 x 4year olds at my sons 4th birthday on a very rainy saturday morning. The kids played and danced for a whole hour followed by the very popular face painting & balloon making. Emily & Mario were so very professional & I would not hesitate to book them again. Thankyou so very much."
"Thank you Emily and Mario for such a fantastic and engaging performance at my daughter’s first birthday! You kept the kids AND adults entertained for the full two hours, with a multitude of engaging performances, games and activities. You are both truly gifted, and we would highly recommend you to family and friends. We hope to call upon your services again in the future for more birthday parties."
"Thank you so, so, so much for helping make Helena’s day be so special. All the parents and especially children loved it! There were so many positive comments made about the awesome entertainers I could go on for ever. Richard, Helena and I would just like to say a big THANK YOU the day wouldn’t have been the same without your beautiful smiles, awesome energy and ORGANISED activities. I know we will be using your services again and recommending you to others. Best Regards Richard, Jacquie and Helena"
"Emily and Mario were awesome! They entertained at our sons first birthday and everyone loved it! They did a great job entertaining lots of kids from 1 to 8 years old. We had a lot of the parents comment on how great they were and mum got to have a bit of a boogie too:)"
"I had 2 fairy entertainers for my daughters 3rd birthday party. Not only did they do a fantastic job of entertaining the kids but the thing I liked the most about the entertainers was they came in and got straight on with it. All I had to show them was where the power point, bathrooms and designated area was and they did the rest. It was one less thing for me to worry about. Also organising the entertainers, etc wtih Emily and Mario was extremely easy too. I have already recommended them to my friends who I hope use them and will be recommending them to more people."
"I saw Emily and Mario at my daughter’s classmate party when I was looking for great hosts for my son’s Dinosaur and Princess 4th birthday party. Luckily I met them. Emily and Mario did a great job at the party, entertaining every kid with different ages from 2-7. Highly recommend them!"
"hired Emily and Mario to entertain the Kids at my Son’s religious function which was at a reception hall. When they arrived, about 40 kids flocked over to them, like seagulls thrown some food – and this did not faze Emily and Mario one bit. These Guys are true professionals and i would not hesitate in hiring them again – in fact i wouldn’t hire anyone else!!! Thanks again!!"
"I hired Pistachio Entertainment for my daughters 6th birthday party. They were amazing!. They immediately engaged all children and provided the most enjoyable activities. The joy could be felt by all in the hall. They adapted to all our needs and requests and were probably the most professional group of entertainers I have experienced. They are very talented and understand children well. My daughter loved them and so many parents want their number. They made my daughters birthday a most memorable one."
"We booked Pistachio Entertainment for my daughter’s 3rd birthday party. Emily and Mario were so professional and extremely entertaining. They both had the 25 plus kids completely entertained and even the parents were having lots of fun. I highly recommend Emily and Mario, they both made my daughter’s birthday party so special. And more importantly –we have some very special memories to cherish. Thank you again Emily and Mario….will be having you back!"
"Mario and the Ballerina were really good. We recently celebrated my son’s 7th birthday party and had around 40 guests including 16 or 17 children. Mario was very friendly, professional and co-operative. He kept the kids engaged all the time with the activities and the circus acts. Not only did the kids enjoy, even the adults loved the drums and the ballerina dance. He stayed back 10 minutes more than the agree 1.5 hours and at the end performed for extra 5 mins for my guests with both Mario and Jennifer the Ballerina dance. They are fabulous and I highly recommend them to you."
"We organised our son’s 5th birthday party Pistachio’s Fairy Mia and Pirate Rafael did a wonderful job entertaining the kids….There were about 20 kids and the whole party was so much fun and laughter…The two wonderful people managed the party so well …All the kids went back home happy …Thanks a lot Emily and Mario"
"Ballerina & Tin Soldier thanks for doing such a fantastic job entertaining 20 energetic kids at Ruby’s 1st birthday party. It was great to have the kids constantly occupied with a variety of different games so the parents could sit back and enjoy a leisurely lunch. I think the boys enjoyed twirling their rainbow ribbons more than the girls ! Lots of fun, thanks again. PS. Loved your funky dance tracks, I need to update my music collection."
