  • Penny and the Puppettes

    We hired Penny and the Puppettes for our four year-old's birthday this past weekend and Merissa and her puppet friends were a huge hit! Merissa was very clear and communicative ahead of time about the Covid-safety plan for this outdoor social-distanced gathering. We let her know that our kiddo can sometimes be a little shy and we weren't sure how he would react, and she immediately responded, "Oh one of my puppets is shy, too, for that very reason!" Well, she is clearly the expert because she got all of the kids comfortable and engaged immediately. At the end of the day I asked our kid what his favorite part of the party was and he said, "Merissa and her puppets!"

    We had penny and puppettes perform for a 4-year old birthday party and it was great! It's not easy to capture the attention and keep young children engaged but Merissa did just that and all the adults enjoyed as well. She was a pleasure to deal with and I would definitely recommend!

    We decide to have a last minute party for our 4 year old and had 4 days to plan it. Luckily Penny and the Puppettes came through. Merissa was really amazing. She immediately connected with the kids and put a very sweet puppet show that including lots of puppets, singing, dancing and extra special attention for the birthday girl! Our kid and all her friends (and parents tbh) were mesmerized. One kid even went up to her and asked her to come to her party later in the month. Needless to say, we recommend them highly.

    Merissa was incredibly professional and creative. She was right on time and provided exactly what she had promised. The kids absolutely LOVED her and the puppets (4yo b-day party). And she had a few inside jokes in there for us parents to keep us engaged as well ;) I would highly recommend Penny & The Puppettes!

    We hired Merissa for our daughter's 2 year old birthday party. She was a delight. She kept us all, kids and adults alike, entertained throughout. She's got a great voice and her show flows well. It includes a lot of interaction with the kids, hands on, touching the puppets, singing, moving, etc. The full package. Some of the adults told me that they've seen other puppet shows and Merissa's was the best. I would certainly recommend her for any kids party.
  • Review for Penny and the Puppettes

    We were so happy to have Merissa from Penny and the Puppettes perform at my son's 3rd birthday party. She came dressed as a cowgirl for my son's farm themed party. She kept all of my son's friends entertained for 50 minutes. The kids loved all of her songs & puppets. My son still talks about his farm party & the singing cowgirl! Definitely recommend Merissa from Penny & the Puppettes!
  • Review of Penny & the Puppettes

    We hired Penny & the Puppettes for my daughter's first bday party this July. I can't say enough how wonderful the show was and how much the kids enjoyed it! We had a group of 30-40 kids, who ranged from less than 1 to 7 years old. Merissa had every single kid entertained for the full 45 minutes from beginning to end! It was truly amazing. We were very nervous since we had such a large group of kids with varying ages. Turned out better than we could've imagined and it was such a success! The show is interactive and Merissa has a great voice. Even the parents were entertained! I would highly recommend them - Merissa was as sweet as they come and we would recommend her for any party.
  • Review for a Penny and the Puppetes

    Penny and Puppetes- Marissa was amazing. We had 12 three year olds in our apartment and she engaged them all in her puppet show. They sat quietly for a full hour enjoying monsters, animals and listening to songs. All kids could participate in the show hugging puppets etc. It was truly the best performance at the kids party I’ve ever seen. Marissa is an amazing performer: warm and fun and she knows her craft.

    found a great music class to take my three year old son to on Union St. near 5th at Union Street Studio on Thursdays mornings. They're called Penny and the Puppettes. Lots of music activities like other music classes we've been to, but also the leaders bring out puppets with stories and songs. Great fun. and it didn't seem to bother my son that he was the only boy. Also, there were only 3 other kids there, but Penny told us their classes are new to Brooklyn, so we all said we'd try to get the word out. You can go to a free class on Thursdays in December, and the class semester starts in January.
