Mr. Mysto's Hints and Tips

On this, hints and tips page you will find little bits of information that will help your daughter’s party be a success. It contains information based on my experience of more than 7200 children’s parties. The hints and tips are intended for your guidance, I hope you will find them useful.

1. Keep the numbers of guests in line with the amount of space available. Don’t invite 40 children if you have room for only 20. I can advise on how to measure how many will fit in the space you available and I have a list of many local halls if you need more room.

2. Keep present opening until after the party is over. Agree with your daughter on where the presents will be placed - On a present table. In the present bag, etc.

3. Don’t put noisy whistles, etc. on the food table. Children cannot eat whilst blowing. It creates a lot of unnecessary noise and most important wastes’ time. You have employed me to entertain the children. It is not necessary to help me fill the time. Put the whistle in their party bags or better still don’t buy them.

4. Keep the food simple. Sandwiches on the whole are not popular, so please don’t make too many and certainly DON’T make any just in case they are hungry. You might consider a hot meal such as Fish Fingers, Chicken Nuggets, or Beef Burgers all are very popular with the children when accompanied by chips and tomato sauce. Please don’t allow any food, drink or sweets during the show, these are a distraction and may be dangerous with children choking on food while laughing.

5. Distractions distract, please try and clear party room of toys and other distractions. Don’t get into major removals; perhaps a sheet over the top of toys boxes will suffice. Loose balloons are not allowed on the floor, as these are a major distraction and are dangerous if youngsters put bits of broken balloon in the mouth.

6. Try not to mix the age groups of the children too much. Younger siblings are important people but don’t invite more very young children to keep them company at the elder one’s party. They may well join in, if not distracted by other very small toddlers.

7. It is quite unnecessary for mum to stay because her little one is a bit tearful on arrival. In my experience, within a very short while of mum going, I can settle the tearful youngster down, however, if mum stays, then so does the problem. Try to reassure mum that everything will be all right. Take her phone number and tell her you will give her a call if her little one doesn’t settle down but it is very seldom necessary.

8. In my experience, it is only necessary to remind very young children up to 4 years old about the toilet. If the toilet is mentioned to older children alto-suggestion will have a queue outside the little room and none watching the show. Mr Mysto will remind the little ones and is on the lookout for the signs and will take action where necessary.

You have avoided many pitfalls by booking Mr. Mysto, but these tips will help maximise the fun the children derive from the party.
