A Message From Leesa, CEO, Send In The Clowns

To all of our beloved clients,

We at Send In The Clowns understand how abruptly things have suddenly changed for children and families as a result of the Covid-19 virus.
We imagine that parents are wondering how keep kids happy at home with a fun play date now that things are unexpectedly different, or how to celebrate an upcoming birthday, which children so look forward to.

If you are trying to figure out a stress-free and original way to still delight your little one during this challenging time, we would like to offer a solution.
Our mascot-style costumed characters, such as ELMO, PEPPA, EASTER BUNNY, OLAF, CAT IN THE HAT, SUPERHEROES, BABY SHARK, MICKEY & MINNIE,, and more, are completely shielded and covered, which means safety for all.

Our 30-minute Meet and Greet Surprise & Delight Visit at your home or nearby park in Los Angeles, Beverly Hills, Pacific Palisades, Encino, Manhattan Beach, Santa Monica, Glendale, Sherman Oaks, Long Beach, Orange County and surrounding areas, with a child’s favorite mascot-style character is a really sweet & risk-free experience, especially during this uncertain, disappointing, and potentially stir-crazy time. We are offering this service at the rate of $125, but will certainly work with you where we can if costs are an issue.

Invite us over to entertain, read a story, dance and sing, play games, perform magic, engage with crafts, join your family for happy birthday and cake, and photo-ops—definitely the photo-ops!
Please click here for our character list, and let us know how we can help!

??P.S. you’ll be keeping a Party Pro working, which means win-win for all!
Our Party Pro staff has seen their work vanish hour by hour, and we are committed to finding solutions to keep people working as much as we possibly can.
??We are offering a very generous cancellation policy, because we know how suddenly things might change: Full Refund with 72 hours or more notice, Full Credit toward a future date with less than 72 hours notice.
