I had Claphandies come and do my sons 4th Birthday on Sunday and it was the best fun. Liza is so engaging and fun and all of the children had a wonderful time. She had loads of activities planned which the children all loved. I would recommend Claphandies for birthday parties for all children and would definitely book them again! Kate

Lara adores her play lab, she starts shrieking with excitement as soon as we drive in to the carpark! She thoroughly enjoys the songs and bubble time and the activities are fantastic as I can see her adapting her newly learnt skills at home. It is her second term and she is still as keen as her first day!!

- Kate Dowling - Terenure - Toddlers - playlab course

"The course was great - very worthwhile indeed. The instructor was very good and he really went into the CPR aspect of the course in great detail and we were happy to have to go through it again at the end of the day. It's amazing how confusing it can be when you actually have to go through the steps on your own so it was great that he spent so...

- Nicola & Stephen - Harcourt St - firstaid course

I can only say that all the boys had a wonderful day at James birthday. Liza was amazing and we are all saying how calm she was managing 25 x 7 year old boys, and so kind to a few siblings and neighbours also ! How she got those boys to do what she did with all the chaos was unbelievable. Well done Liza and a million thanks for making James party...

"I found the course really helpful and interesting. The course content covered a lot of areas and the practical aspect of the course was very good as it was not just theory which made it easier to take it all in and learn. The atmosphere was very relaxed and the instructor was very good and informative. I think would feel a little more confident...

- Mark Mcloughlin - Greystones - firstaid course

I really enjoyed the First aid course. I felt the instructor was great very approachable and knowledgeable. I feel I benefited greatly from it and would like to think that I could act confidently should an incident arise. I would definitely recommend it to friends. The content was just right for a day long course. Thanks for organizing it, it is...

- Audrey Duggan - Harcourt St - firstaid course

I recently had Liza out for a party in our house for my 1 yr old daughters birthday. We had lots of babies and toddlers and some older kids too. Everybody had a brilliant time including the adults. I found it was a great focus for the party and helped break the ice with some people who had not met before. Liza was brilliant at including all the...

- Treise Murphy - Willow's 1st Birthday Party - Home Party - playparty course

I really enjoyed the course and found it very very worthwhile. The instructor in particular was very informative and personable and made the day very interesting. The practice hands on sessions were particularly useful. I have since recommended the course to others. In fact I think this course should be compulsory to all new parents.Great course

- Aoife O'Shea - Harcourt St - firstaid course

I found the first aid course very good and would definitely recommend it. My only fear is I wouldn't remember how to do CPR in an emergency as most also felt. My recommendation to you would be to do up some score cards laminated for infant, toddler and adult CPR and choking so in an emergency one could glance at them. Overall, 10/10.
