For the past three years Hip Tot has been producing and promoting live family entertainment events in Brooklyn and for the past two of those three years, Greenwood Park has hosted the Hip Tot Family really good to us in providing what we need to get our shows off the ground.
For the longest time, Carpingo has been providing us with a car to use to and from each show. It has helped us tremendously — especially during the months that it snowed. They also offer discounts to fans of ours so if you are a new customer, sign-up with the code HIPTOT75 to receive $75 worth of free driving. Hurry because the deal ends soon! Carpingo also tables events with free sunglasses, frisbees and all types of fun swag for kids and parents.
So the last show featured Author/illustrator Steve Light reading his book Have You Seen My Dragon. He signed copies, did live drawings and donated those live pictures that were later raffled off. Light has won a Parents Choice Gold
Award and has published over 18 books.
Jason Cottle got the crowd’s imagination flowing with his interactive storytelling and theatrics. We look forward to having him perform at more shows in 2015… We also must thank all the press we got for the event from
The blogs mentioned above are top-notch family entertainment specialists in the industry. Check them out when you get a chance. Hip Tot would also like to thank all of the print-publications that promoted the series like the New York Times, NY Daily News, NY Newsday, and NY Post to name just a few.
UrbanSitter is the premier babysitting company in the world. Much of what exists in that industry they created and/or pioneered for what now seems like millions of imitators. We were happy to have them onboard for the entire season providing facepainting for everyone who signed up for their mailing list. Certainly not a bad deal cause I tell you, kids love getting their faces painted. If you are in a pinch for a babysitter, definitely check them out at UrbanSitter.com
Hip Tot would also like to thank everyone who contributed to the giveaways, especially WithLoveFromBrooklyn.com who donated the top prize of a gift basket worth $95.00 !!!
Greenwood Park is a great place to hold live events with their 14,000+ square feet of indoor and outdoor space. They’re one of the few venues in town with such a huge amount of space and this was a good thing since this year’s Hip Tot Family Day events drew large crowds! Special thanks to Staci Leatherland for her on-the-ball management skills.
Also thanks to Larry, Albert and the rest of the crew at Greenwood Park for helping us out as much as they did. Last but not least, we would like to thank all of you who attended our events. We will continue to blog about our friends in the industry while planning next year’s concerts and events. We are also throwing birthday parties so if you’re interested, please don’t hesitate to call Adam at 347.813.1396. Thanks please come back to our website and check us on social media — we do that stuff six days a week!
