We had an absolute blast! The children laughed the whole way through the show and loved the opportunity to meet the puppets and puppeteers afterwards! What a great way to celebrate book week!

Just Divine!

Wow what a wonderful show that Brett and Elissa performed at our childcare centre last week. Actually I think the word “divine” was mentioned by our Kindergarten Teacher. We are always looking for new incursions for our children and luckily we stumbled across Larrikin Puppets (don’t know why we hadn’t found them earlier). They were fun, professional and great value. The children were in hysterics the whole show and loved meeting the puppets afterwards. I highly recommend them and will be having them back each year.

Larrikin Puppets Review - Testimonial

Larrikin Puppets are supremely talented. We hired them for my daughter’s 5th birthday recently (July 2019) and it was every bit of the fun and mischief we were hoping for.

It’s a pretty unique opportunity to have had the experience and the kids and parents all raved about my daughter’s special day. Brett and Elissa are kind, personable and very knowledgeable – I feel certain that they are on a trajectory for success and fame (TV pilots and other exciting projects in the wings!) and feel grateful to have been able to have such an intimate performance by them for our friends and family.

All the best guys. Good luck with everything the future holds.

Engaging

It was amazing to watch many toddlers engaged the entire time. We had a broad age group of children from 12 months to 5years. Even the most reluctant audience members were totally engaged and participating towards the end of the show. It was loved by all including the grandmother that came to watch with her granddaughter. We are hoping we can coordinate it again for next year.

Jindalee State School – Great Show | Value For Money | Aligns With Year 1 Curriculum

We incorporated The Larrikin Puppet Show into our Design Technology and Drama units. The Year 1 students absolutely loved the show and were completely engaged throughout it. The opportunity to meet the puppets and learn how they work was fabulous. We will definitely book Larrikin Puppets to perform at our school as a part of these units for many years to come. # great show # value for money # aligns with Year 1 curriculum.

Perfect Birthday Party Entertainment

We highly recommend Larrikin puppets for kids birthday party. We had the most wonderful time at my son’s 3rd birthday party. All the kids from the age 2-10 enjoyed the show. Even the adults couldn’t keep their eyes off the show. I couldn’t have better entertainment for the party, worth every cent. Brett was amazing. Kids loved the theme of the show which was appropriate to cater for the age range.

Ruby’s 3rd Birthday Party

Thank you so much Brett! What an awesome addition to the party you are. Everyone was raving about you and the puppets and it really made Ruby’s night. We had to sit and watch the little video I took over and over and over and over again.
Thank you for your professionalism and talent. Just awesome x x

Alfie’s 5th Birthday Party

Hi Brett, Thank you so much for such a great puppet show at Alfie’s birthday. It was a real hit – lots of fun for young and old. I also liked the way you explained the puppets after the show and gave the children a chance to interact with the puppets.

Cooroy And Noosa Library Puppetry Workshops

We had heard about Larrikin Puppets, and of course the name appealed immediately. However, when we met Elissa and Brett and saw their fabulous show and workshop we were blown away. The show appeals to children of all ages, including toddlers up to young teens, and gives a lively introduction to puppetry and how it works. They bring all their own Muppet-style puppets – and there are lots of them, big and small – so that all the children can learn to handle their own puppet character. The workshop leads participants through a range of puppetry devices: movement, voice, creating character, and culminates in a mini-performance. Audience participation is high, and both Elissa and Brett are very attentive to individual children. Parents, grandparents and the children all had a great time. Warning: There may be a chance of higher than usual noise levels and wildly exciting fun!

6th Birthday Puppet Spectacular

We booked Larrikin Puppets for my sons 6th birthday party. There were about 24 children and the same number of adults in attendance. Every single person in our backyard was entertained. The show was funny, fast paced (important to keep those little attention spans watching) and constantly changing with at least 6 different puppets making an appearance, the audience interaction was brilliant. My son couldn’t believe the puppets knew his favourite food, how much he liked dinosaurs and his face lit up every time they said his name. I had so many parents come up after and tell me how much they had enjoyed the entertainment. Brett and Elissa were also professional in their set up, pack up and interaction with me. I could not recommend Larrikin Puppets more highly and thank them so much for making my son’s birthday so much fun!!!

Kilcoy State School

Hi Brett & Elissa, Thank you so much for your visit to Kilcoy! By all accounts and excitement from the children, they had an awesome time. The children have been very keen to make their own puppets and perform with our finger and hand puppets. Thanks once again for your wonderful performance.

4th Birthday Party

Dear Brett, I cannot say thank you enough! The kids had such a fantastic time as did the grown ups. Thank you for making Kiera’s birthday so memorable. We will certainly be recommending you to friends and family.

All our children sat through the entire presentation

It’s not often a show is enjoyed by babies, however Larrikin Puppets captivated their attention for 30 minutes without a cry. Our older children are still talking about the show two weeks on!

Best Kids Party Ever!

I would highly recommend Larrikin Puppets for a kids party. We had the most wonderful 3rd birthday party for our daughter. All of the children as well as the adults thoroughly loved it. It was so entertaining and for a mother that is not into amusing a backyard full of three year olds it was the best value for money ever! It truly was worth every cent. If you want something really unique that will bring a lot of joy book Larrikin Puppets. You won’t be disappointed.

Sunshine Coast Teddy Bear Fair

Please accept my sincere thanks for helping us make last weekend’s Teddy Bear Fair such a huge success. Feedback received from the event, both on the day and via the online feedback forms we’ve received since, has been overwhelmingly positive and the day simply wouldn’t have had the same energy without your generous support.

Your performance on stage was absolutely amazing and several people have commented specifically on how ‘fantastic’ the puppet show was.

Thanks again for helping us to raise the profile of our maternity services among the Sunshine Coast community.

National Aboriginal And Islander Children’s Day

Brett and his awesome crew of puppets entertained kids aged 2 to 72 at The Family Place for Aboriginal and Islander Children’s Day last week. It was hilarious and a treat that will be talked about for years to come. I still have the talking cheesecake song stuck in my head.

Vibe Markets

Hi Brett and Elissa, thank you so very much for today…we are still receiving enthusiastic and positive feedback from the many happy people who watched and took part in your show. A number of Mums and Dads have even told us that their little puppeteers have been putting on shows for the family ever since this morning’s workshop. A big thank you again for putting smiles on our market goers’ faces.
