He said it was the best day ever
We hired Mermaid Laura and Merman Lir to give Mer Lessons for my son's 7th birthday. The Merfriends helped arrange a discount with the indoor pool and brought an extra child's size tail for his sister to borrow. William was in mermaid heaven, so glad we chose the MerFriends!

My daughter was indescribable!
Laura was awesome and her and Josh was well dressed!...lol. I was a little disappointed when they told me the underwater camera wasnt working but they still took pictures. : ) Laura had my daughter so in engaged she didnt care that all of her friends didnt get to show and my daughter again, was indescribable the way Laura presented her tail to her at the end. Thanks again you guys for making my daughter's 10th birthday one she will never forget.

Fun night on the Rooftop
MerFriends promptness and dependability eased my stress in planning a surprise for my daughter's birthday. Their appearance was quite a topic of conversation and they did not disappoint my anticipation! I would definitely recommend them! My son asked afterwards, "Why didn't I get a mermaid for my birthday?"

Outstanding Birthday Party
We booked MerFriends for a Little Mermaid birthday party for my 5 year old daughter at Emler Swim School. Our mermaid Kelly was outstanding along with her prince and pirate. Everyone had a great time and were amazed how realistic her mermaid tail was! Truly a special experience for our guests and birthday girl. Highly recommend this group. Professional and punctual as well.

Amazing experience!!!
Laura has made a lasting impression on my 3 year old daughter and her friends. She was very friendly and patient with the kids. She looks as real of a mermaid as the once you see on TV. Even the adults at the party where amazed. She gave a kids ride on her back, she sang songs, and they touched her tail, talked. She most definitely has made our party magical. She has even gone above and beyond the call of duty in helping us find a venue for our party. We would recommend her to anyone. Thank you for everything Laura, you Rock !!!

Thank you Mermaid Kelly for helping my little one get over her shyness & showing her how much fun it is to be a "mer-girl"! I have seen many children's' entertainers over the years - some great & others unfortunately who appear to just toss on a costume & wear a fake smile, but don't truly enjoy being around kids. I can tell that you are one who truly loves your job & enjoys working with children. You have a gift of kindness & gentleness. I wish you the best of luck with your career & know you will go far in this venture. Thank you again for making our little girl's dreams come true! The Merfriends are amazing! They are all so patient & gentle with young kids. The Pirates & Peter Pan have very realistic accents & are also great with kids of all ages - interacting with them, helping them play games, telling them about where they came from, etc. Meeting the Merfriends was a truly magical experience that my daughter will remember for a long, long time! Thank you for your hard work & professionalism to create these special memories.

Laura the Mermaid was a huge hit at my daughter's birthday party! All the kids gasped and couldn't believe there was a mermaid in the pool! The guests are still talking about the mermaid months later and my daughter asks about her anytime we get in the pool:)Mermaid Laura was so graceful in the water and spoke to each guest even taking pictures, much to their delight! My favorite thing was even though she entertained everyone she never forgot who the birthday girl was and spent lots of special one on one time with her. It made a huge impression and that little birthday girl smile said it all. Hooray for Mermaid Laura! I would highly recommend her for your next event!

Great birthday party fun. They really get into their roles while simultaneously interacting with kids and parents.

Laura the Mermaid is amazing at really being a believable mermaid and a gentle friend to her youngest fans who may sometimes be afraid of new people or of the water. She's also a lifeguard so she can lifeguard a pool party if needed.

My daughter's birthday wish was to have a mermaid party. After she opened her presents she walked to the pool to find her mermaid friend! Laura was a great hit for all of the kids! Her new tail was awesome and everyone commented on how realistic it looks! My daughter said this was her best day ever. I would highly recommend Laura! She is amazing.

We hosted our granddaughter's "Under the Sea" birthday party at our home. That day my husband had been on a business trip and drove straight from the airport. Talking to a guest, he glanced out the window and saw Mermaid Laura in the pool. Later he commented that even as a grown-up, "there's something magical about seeing a mermaid swimming in your pool!" The children ages 2-13 were all mesmerized by Mermaid Laura. She has mastered the graceful mermaid glide through the water. Weeks later in the pool our granddaughter is still calling out "meeee-maid where are yoooou?" We tell her Mermaid Laura is visiting other children on their special day. Most memorable party EVER! Mermaid Laura rocks!!
