Don’t just take our word for it…

Thank you SO much, New England Reptile Shows! My son and his friends had an amazing time at his 7th birthday party. They learned a lot about each animal and enjoyed getting to touch everything and have their photo taken. There were even parents and older siblings who intended to drop off and come back at the end of the party who wound up staying because they were so interested in the show.  Even my 1 year old had a blast and was invited to pet the reptiles. To quote my son, “this was the best party EVER!”

Jill, Birthday Party

This show was a spectacular success! Both children and adults were fascinated throughout. Eric and Emily were fabulous. Patient, informative, calm. They brought a wide and interesting variety of animals, and every child and adult that wanted to was able to hold or touch them. I was remarkable to see so many adults who were reptile averse end up either touching the animals, or even having a large Burmese python draped around their neck. Kids age 3 to 84 (not a typo) were enraptured throughout. Several parents commented that this was the best birthday party they have been to. More than a week later, we are still hearing comments from folks about how much fun they had. Highly, highly recommended for any occasion.

Chris B., Birthday Party

It takes a special person to captivate 20 9-year-old boys and Alex delivered beyond our wildest expectations! The kids had a blast learning about the animals, and will never forget what it’s like to have a chinchilla sit on your head! It was an experience they’ll never forget – thank you so much!

Kati, Birthday Party

Wonderful show! Very nice and accommodating staff and very knowledgeable. Amazing animals, sparked interest in all of guests, from 4-40 years old, everyone loved it!

Rebecca D., Birthday Party

Bil and Alex were amazing and so personable! Both were extremely patient and calm with a rowdy group of 7 year olds! They did it so well starting with the smaller creatures and ending with the largest! From ages 70+ to under 2 everyone enjoyed the show! Extremely informative and interactive awesome hands on experience. We will talk about this for years to come. I will tell everyone about them, thank you so much for such memorable day!

Kathleen T., Birthday Party

Reptile Shows of New England exceeded my expectations. The show was engaging and very hands-on. I can’t wait to have them back next week!

Alexsis P., Educational enrichment program

The reptile show was a big hit with the children in our complex! Their parent’s loved it too. The men doing the show were professional and worked well with the kids. The show was hands on, interactive and well done. I would highly recommend Reptiles Shows of New England.

Cindy B.

What an amazing show! My campers of all ages loved the hands on education! The entire team was kind, welcoming and patient!!

Mallory, Kidz Korner Summer Camp

This was the most perfect birthday surprise for my reptile-loving 8 year old. He could not have been happier. And it was also the perfect way to make up for not being able to have a big party this year. Reptiles all over the backyard will be hard to beat!

Elizabeth D, My son's 8th birthday

I am so happy I was able to have Reptile Shows of New England come to our house for my kids’ birthday party. My boys loved the presentation and were super excited to hold or touch almost all of the animals. The only downside is now they want a pet snake!

Thanks so much!!!

Beth, Birthday Party

Reptile Shows of New England did an awesome job! The kids loved petting zoo & learning about the reptiles! I would hire them again & recommend them to anyone.

Danielle , Birthday 1 year old twins

The show was an absolute hit here at FCC! We hosted triple the amount of kids we normally get for events like this, and parents ended up joining in the fun as well! The NE Reptile staff were awesome – they were extremely knowledgeable and great at interacting with the audience. We’ll definitely be booking again!

Holly, Kids Event

Reptile Shows of New England came for my son’s 7th birthday party. We had a group of 13 kids (ages 5-7) who were highly anticipating the day, and they we definitely not disappointed! I can’t praise them enough for a job well done.

For starters, Jodi and Herb were courteous, prompt and set up all the animals very quickly. It was immediately obvious that they loved all of the reptiles! Their iguana, sweet pea, was an huge hit with the children. He stayed on the table throughout the show and was very happy to have all of the children pet him. He even ventured off the table to climb on my husband, it was great!

We chose to have the full educational show, which was just over an hour, which was a perfect amount of time. The children had the opportunity to hold every reptile, with the exception of just a few, but for those, the reptile was put in a cage on the floor and the kids took turns reaching in to pet. They even got to feed the turtle Kale and watch the iguana eat his banana. Jodi and Herb kept them engaged and they learned a lot about each reptile. They brought a great variety and kept the kids guessing as to what was next.

Do you have a child that enjoys snakes? Well, this is their show. I’ve never seen so many children delighted to hold snakes in my life. Every child got a turn to hold all of the snakes- big snakes, little snakes, king snakes…they were all there. It was really incredible. Jodi and Herb were so comfortable in letting the children enjoy the reptiles, it was a great element that I didn’t expect!

My son will never forget this birthday, and I am certain his friends won’t either.

Thank you Reptile Shows of New England!!!

Lindsey, Jackson's 7th Birthday

We were so happy to have Reptile Shows of New England present at our library. It drew in one of the biggest crowds we’ve ever had for a program, and the kids are still talking about how much they loved seeing the snakes. The team was professional, friendly and entertaining and we’d gladly have them back for another event. The assortment of creatures was outstanding too!

Michelle, Harvey-Mitchell Memorial Library

Where do I begin??? This was the best birthday party our son (and his family and friends) could imagine – and I am hoping we can have a repeat next year, and wouldn’t be surprised if some friends follow suit. Eric and Emily are reptile encyclopedias and amazing teachers. The creatures were so beautiful, wonderful to get to know and to touch (an opportunity of a lifetime!) and everyone present, kids and parents alike, were enthralled. While the birthday boy has always been a reptile lover, he now has a family of reptile lovers. Also of note – in the audience were several adults with a fear of snakes (my father among them) who got through that fear! This was a truly joyful, unforgettable experience. Thank you, Emily and Eric (and Bruno Mars, Charlie, Steve Irwin, etc. etc.) One more thing – and then I will stop. They have the best, most thoughtful names for the animals – and all have a story!

Jessica McCannon, A 6th Borthday Party

My grandson as well as his friends and their parents loved this. A lot of positive comments of what a good idea this was. Educational as well as fun. They were there early and rescued a gecko before our party started. I would highly recommend this company. Thank you for making Alexander’s party a hit.

Kristen Salvo, Alexanders Birthday

Reptile Shows of New England put on a fantastic presentation for the 1st and 2nd grade. The kids LOVED it. The show staff were great and Eric did a super job of explaining the animals. I highly recommend this crew!

Corice Boyer, Fisher Hill Elementary School

Eric and Emily did a show today at my house for my 5 year old granddaughter, Gracie’s birthday party and it was a huge hit!! We learned a lot from Eric and Emily and the reptiles were absolutely amazing!!! Thank you Eric and Emily !!!


“Eric and Emily came to perform for our Blue & Gold dinner for about 60 scouts and siblings and 80+ parents. Arranging the event with them was very easy and they were extremely flexible and co-operative.

They arrived right on time and were ready to go despite some delays in our schedule.

They put on a fantastic show. All the kids were mesmerized (and many adults). They worked extremely well with all the kids and everyone who wanted to got to touch a reptile and in fact, we had groups of boys hold the white python and pose for pictures.

NERS did a completely terrific job and many of us, including my son, agreed that this was the best entertainment act we’ve had in years. I completely ”

Nirmal Keshava, Needham Pack 8 Cub Scouts

I cannot say enough about what these folks did for us. Firstly, we had to change the time of our show at the last minute and they were nothing but accommodating. Secondly, what an AMAZING show they put on for all the lil ones at our Annual Christmas Party. They went above and beyond to make sure everyone was educated, got to see the reptiles, touch the reptiles and actually some of the small ones even snuggled with them. It truly was a memorable day and is the talk of the office today. Oh and can I mention that they stayed with me until the end and even helped me clean up. If you are ever looking for something fun and educational, please give them a call. You will not be disappointed. Thank You from everyone at Pentair!!!!

Children's Christmas Party, Pentair, Mansfield MA

Reptile Shows of New England performed for our company’s annual children’s holiday party – ages ranging from 1 to 10. The team did a great job – the show was fun and educational. The kids and parents were all entertained, and the animals were stunning and friendly.
Thank you for a great show!

Lindsey, Babcock Power Co.

We welcomed the Reptile Shows of New England to our childcare center on 11/16/2016. We were looking for a great program that introduced our students to some exciting new reptiles and amphibians. The staff were warm, friendly, professional, and very knowledgeable about each of the creatures. They made the staff and students feel very safe and comfortable. We look forward to welcoming them back to our program in the upcoming spring and/or summer.


Reptile Shows of New England did an awesome job at my children’s birthday party. The kids were fascinated and engaged at all times. The parents loved it. Everyone was welcomed to touch, or not touch as they pleased. There was no pressure and no rush. Every child got the chance to interact with the animals. I would recommend them to anyone looking for an education, interactive birthday party. They were top notch!

Melissa , Garrett and Makayla birthday party

Absolutely amazing! Without doubt the best birthday party we had. They were so knowledgeable, polite, professional and great fun!
Very patient with this big bunch of kids, I would definitely hire them again and again! I wish I knew about them before. A fantastic experience to be repeated! Thank you very much!

Beatriz , My 6 years old birthday party
Hands down the best experience. We had a birthday party for our little girl turning 5. Not only were the kids involved but the adults had an amazing time as well. The Erickson’s were great- they were early to arrive and were answering questions from before the show started to after it was over without hesitation or hurrying to leave. They were polite and truly knew how to engage and educate everyone. They truly are an amazing family friendly team and worth every penny for the show. The animals they brought were great and you can tell they are loved. Thank you to all of you for an amazing experience.
Price was great and they brought lots of animals to share. I only did the hr presentation as I had the younger ones with short attention spans. They were great with the animals and children and adults and were very informative.
Thank you again guys!!!
Emily Gauvin
I couldn’t be more satisfied with my experience with Reptile Shows of New England. They responded to my inquiry quickly, were friendly, flexible, and accommodating. They answered all my questions and gave plenty of details so I knew what to expect. Their prices are also excellent. Everyone at my son’s birthday party was very impressed with their show. Several people are interested in hiring them for their kids upcoming parties. I highly recommend!
Jeanna Alimonti, Michael's 4th birthday party
Excellent service and well worth the money.
Reptile Shows of New England did a wonderful job for my son’s 9th birthday party. They were easy to work with, showed up on time, set up seamlessly and quietly, and the kids were enthralled. They gave a ton of information and I felt like the kids were not only entertained but learned a lot as well. They were trouble-free and completely self-contained so I could focus on other things during the party. And it was a great value- I think they could charge way more for what they are offering. I do not have a single negative thing to say- so happy we booked them.
Cindy House
Jodi, Eric and the New Reptile Shows of New England team did a PHENOMENAL job presenting their show at our annual August Family Camp. They were able to connect with and engage an audience of campers aged 3-75. Three days later and I am still having campers approach me to tell me how much they enjoyed the show, and hope to have them back again next year.
Jodi, Eric and the team were professional, friendly, organized and flexible.
We definitely hope to bring Reptile Shows of New England to our other family programs, and highly recommend their shows!
Sarah Holmes, Becket Family Camp
Thank you so much for the wonderful presentation today. The faces of our campers tells it all! We thoroughly enjoyed your company and your wonderful reptiles. The campers thoroughly enjoyed the presentation. The three presenters were terrific in their approach with the campers in letting them touch the various reptiles. The information they presented was very appropriate for our age group. It was a memorable event!
Ed Schreider, Rivers Day Camp
What an interesting, educational and interactive session.The father, mother and daughter team worked in unison to keep the interest of the children. They were quick with answers to the many questions that were asked and displayed such love for the reptiles and for what they were doing.
Bibi and the preschool staff, Two to five year old children in a childcare setting.
All my guests, children and adults, had a wonderful time with the Erickson’s and their reptiles. The Erickson’s are incredibly knowledgeable and worked very well with the children. They were all very patient and allowed each child to properly handle the reptiles. I highly recommend Reptile Shows of New England for any event.
Atticus, 6th birthday party
Your family put on a wonderful display of reptiles on Saturday and I was so impressed with the amount of information you offered and how well you answered questions that popped up. It was fantastic! My son is still showing pictures of the giant boa that the kids all held to everyone he sees!
The show was great!! The weather was cold and windy so instead of having the show outside under a tent with lots of room, we were inside with little room. All of the presenters we’re inviting and knowledgeable. Great with the kids and checked and double checked when they left to make sure nothing was left behind!!! Thank you thank you. The birthday girl wants you to come back for her 9th birthday!
My husband Mark and I had Reptile Shows of New England come to our son Avan’s 4th birthday party. I never would have known that this was their first party. They did such a great job, they knew their reptile info. and they were all great to talk to. We have our fair share of reptiles in our house. These guys enjoyed our reptiles as much as we enjoyed theres. I would recommend these guys to anyone that is interested in a heartbeat. Price was awesome too. Thanks again Eric n family for making our boys birthday memorable.
