Hi Vanessa. I just wanted to say a massive thank you for coming into school and inspiring my children. They have not stopped talking about you and your animals!! I have told everyone at school today how amazing you and the session was, so it has sparked lots of interest among the rest of the staff.

Thank you for coming into school with your wonderful creatures, your wealth of knowledge and your calm, patient manner. All three classes thoroughly enjoyed their time with you and it was great to see the children touching and holding the exotic creatures – even those that were initially unsure. We have already recommended you to other schools and settings and we hope to see you again at Overdale.

Hi Vanessa. Just wanted to say thankyou so much for an absolutely fantastic party. Oliver loved it as did all his little friends. A huge success!

Claire - Parent, Sapcote

Thankyou so much for a very enjoyable morning. It was a huge success and the clients are still talking about it now! One of my ladies cannot believe she has got to 93 years of age and it’s the first time she has held a snake! her family don’t believe her – we have photos! Once again, Vanessa, thank you so much

Tina - Age Concern (daycare), Wigston

Hi. Thankyou for the sessions yesterday. They were brilliant and the children were really engaged with everything. See you again next year!

My son absolutely loves learning about the different animals in a fun and interesting way. I’ve never seen him concentrate and sit still still for so long!! We had a great time.

Tickled Skink came to entertain the children in the build up to my World Record attempt last month. They were fantastic! Vanessa was just brilliant with the children, who learnt so much about animals they wouldn’t normally get to see, never mind hold!! It was fun, informative, interesting…..and I would certainly recommend Tickled Skink to any school or children’s party. Just fab!

My granddaughter has been regularly attending sessions at the local reading shop and really looks forward to them. The way each session is themed around a specific habitat with songs and movement makes it totally interactive and memorable. Watching children gently handling snakes and giant millipedes is testament to Vanessa’s skill in involving them. Brilliant!

Noah and I attended a Summer special event called ‘Holidays’. We had lots of fun – singing and dancing whilst learning about sea creatures and holidays. We also did some arts and crafts – made a bumble bee stone, planted some grass seed and decorated a biscuit. We enjoyed some homemade fruity punch and cakes. The highlight was learning about the amazing reptiles and insects. We have lots of lovely photos from this event. Very muh recommended.

My 2 year old and 4 year old have attended 3 of the special sessions with their grandparents and have thoroughly enjoyed them. I am always greeted with an armful of things they have made; decorated biscuits, space mobiles, painted stones, etc. I do think the grandparents enjoy touching the creatures as much as the kids do!
