What our customers say about us

I was looking for something to do with my daughter, Emma on my day off from work. I was looking for something that we could interact with eachother instead of just bringing her to the playground or for a walk. So I started looking around and I googled items to do and clap handies came up. Emma and I both really enjoy the class as we are both...

Many thanks for taking the time to follow up regarding our experience at the First Aid Course. I thought Siobhan was lovely, very warm and obviously very passionate about teaching first aid ñ she created a very open atmosphere where everyone felt comfortable participating and asking questions. I have recommended the course to several pals and I...

"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

Thanks to Lisa for making Sam's recent 5th birthday such a success. The kids were kept thoroughly entertained for the whole hour which left me free to get on with other birthday matters. The kids had a ball and the whole atmosphere was one of FUN, rather than SSTTRREESSSS!!!!!! Nobody was roaming around, everyone was included despite a range of...

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.

- Fiona Garvey - Harcourt St - firstaid course

I think claphandies is a great social outlet both for the babies and parents alike. My little girl loves Mr. Badger and gets so excited when she sees him each week. She also loves the rhymes and songs.When she gets upset I say one of the rhymes and she instantly stops.

"To summarise on the first aid course, I found it to be very useful, very informative and very well constructed. The Nurse who instructed on the day, well you couldn't find anyone better to run that class."

- Garry Kirwan - 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...

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

- Kate O'Brien - Nathan's 4th Birthday Party - Home Party - playparty course

"Everyone that attended the course found it extremely beneficial. The mix of discussion and practical work kept it interesting. Fergus, our trainer was also excellent. I have since recomended your company to 2 groups of people and would not hesitate in doing so for anybody else. I feel much more confident now that I could handle an...
