I just had the pleasure of seeing Mike in action for an entire day! At Kids Day, he worked the equivalent amount of time as 3 birthday parties back-to-back and the first child was just as delighted as the last! His energy never waned and he didn't slow down for a minute.
Mike will entertain your party-goers, no matter the age. He is a master at getting everyone involved - parents too. He has a wonderful demeanor about him...more

We just had Mike and the Big Blue Trunk for a birthday party and I can't say enough about our experience. Mike was amazing, he handled sleet and rain with ease and the kept all of the kids happy and smiling. The birthday boy was so happy we are thrilled with the way things went. Mike even left a gift for Mom! Thank you so much Mike for all you do!

The Big Blue Trunk was exactly what we had hoped it would be, and more! Mike was easy to work with and we highly recommend! Our daughter Riley's 5th birthday was the best ever, and all her friends (22 kids in all) were entertained from the moment that they walked through the door. The craft, the activities, the FUN, just kept coming :) Thanks Mike!

Mike was fantastic! We hired him without ever seeing him in action. Which was a little scary as we had no idea what to expect. He was great answering my questions and dealing with my crazy need to know how everything would work. The day of the party, he was prompt and got right to work setting up his activities. Our party was held in January - in Vermont... so we needed something big enough inside - we held ours at Memorial Hall in Essex...more

Mike and all his awesome tricks came out for our twins 4th birthday party. I can not say enough good things about Mike and The Big Blue Trunk. From the moment he arrived (with the birthday boys names on the side of his trunk) my kids were mesmerized. The weather wasn't on our side but that didn't stop Mike from making sure that the kids had an amazing time. He doesn't miss a beat, is very engaging and very very entertaining. We went with...more

We just had a Big Blue Trunk for the second time. This time for my younger son's 8th birthday. We did a Star Wars theme. Wow. From the Jedi training to the light saber making... he had ten boys having a blast. The thought that goes into each activity is incredible. Mike has endless energy. He's amazing. If you are on the fence, hire him. The value is incredible. Both parties that Mike has helped with will be the most remembered childhood...more

We've had Mike come to our daughter's birthday parties for the last two years and he has thoroughly exceeded our expectations both times. He takes the stress out of party planning and expertly guides kids through a variety of fun and engaging activities. We parents look like rock stars and kids and parents alike talk about the party for months. It's hard to imagine not having Mike back year after year. My daughter asked for him this year...more

What a fantastic day for my 4 year old daughter and her friends! Mike came with EVERYTHING for the safari themed party...even the cups and plates! He is energetic and creative and had props for all kinds of activities. I highly recommend him to anyone looking for an extra special birthday celebration!

We recently hired Mike and the Big Blue Trunk for our son's 7th birthday party and it was fantastic. Winter parties with lots of young boys (with lots of energy) can be challenging but Mike had great games that kept everyone having fun for 2 hours! Even the parents joined in! Fun was had by all and everyone left with a smile on their face, along with party favors and animal balloons....all provided by Mike. It was great, from start to...more

Wow! We just had my son's 4th birthday party with The Big Blue Trunk and it was fantastic. Mike provides a full-service operation -- from the customized bottle of sparkling cider as he arrives at your door to the incredible, fun and totally interactive games, to the tableware and the full clean up after all was done. Mike engaged the kids from start to finish and was a tremendous help to my husband and me to keep the flow of the party...more
