These Mascots are the most authentic ones you will see
I have used The Pure Imagination Party Company twice in the past year, and they are as good as it gets.
The company is extremely talented and handle every party with care. They put on a magical performance for my son's first birthday and brought Mr Mouse and Miss Mouse to my home.
First of all, these mascots are the most authentic ones you will see outside of a theme park. Second of all, they played every song I requested that I knew my son would be excited to hear. Lastly, they provide a host for the mascots to lead the party and help them navigate the area since their vision is limited in the costume, which highlights how organized and thorough of a job they do.
Bottom line- they are an organized, reliable, easy to work with, and fairly priced. I will definitely use them again and again and again!

Mascot Party Pricing
I just want to book the mascot by themself. Why do I have to have a Party Host?
There are a few reasons we require a party host and do not send out our mascot performers alone.
Safety: As you can imagine, vision is limited for our mascot performers and it is very hot inside the costumes. The Party Host helps the mascot to navigate around the party and makes sure that the performer is safe moving around the area, going up and down stairs, squeezing through tight spaces, and makes sure that no children/guests are in the mascot performer’s blindspots. This helps keep the mascot performer safe as well as the guests at your party. If the mascot performer is overheating or something is wrong, they are able to give a quick and seamless signal to the Party Host so that they can prevent or fix the problem promptly. In addition, sometimes children behave differently towards a mascot performer than they would to another person, and occasionally pull on the costume, hit, punch, kick, etc. We have the Party Host there to help protect the mascot performer and remind children to be gentle. This also causes our costumes to be in MUCH better condition than other companies because we have someone there to help prevent damage.
Quality of Service: Without a Party Host present, the mascot performer will be VERY limited in what they can do at your party. Since vision and mobility is limited, they don’t have the functionality of their hands to run music, and they can’t speak, leading activities would pretty much be out of the question. With the addition of the Party Host, we are able to offer you a full hour of interactive activities and keep the kids fully engaged. The Party Host explains activities, runs the music, passes out dancing props, leads games, assists guests by taking pictures and making sure that your pictures look good, leads happy birthday, and helps kids warm up to and interact with the character in the event that they are feeling shy. They also help the Mascot in and out of costume, which they can’t do by themselves, so that you can sit back and relax or play host to your other guests. Overall, the party host makes your job easy and the party run seamlessly!
The activities you have listed sound really fun, but I really just wanted the characters to do meet and greet and take pictures. Is this possible? Will this be priced differently?
If meet and greet and photos is more appropriate to your event or venue then we can absolutely do that! We charge by the amount of time the performers are present at your party, not the activities that are being performed, so the price would be the same.
I only want the mascot to come and do 30 minutes of meet and greet. Do you have a 30 minute rate?
We do have a one hour minimum for our mascot parties, however, you could split up the hour by doing 30 minutes with the mascot and host for meet and greet and photos (and happy birthday, if you’d like), and then have the host stay for 30 minutes to do face painting or balloon twisting. The rate would be the same for this option as our standard one hour mascot party.
**Please keep our recommendations for the amount of time required to complete these activities in mind (for more than 10 children, you may need more than 30 minutes with the host).
Can the Mascot stay longer than 1 hour?
Generally we have a 1 hour maximum for our mascot characters, but we have a few very experienced performers who feel comfortable doing longer events. Our one hour maximum is generally for two reasons: the safety of the performer and the attention span of the kids. For the safety of the performer, whenever your mascot performer is at the party for longer than 60 minutes, they will need a break midway through. We find that for standard parties, 60 minutes is plenty of time for the activities that we provide. The kids tend to lose their attention span after one hour so we usually don’t recommend more time, and if you are concerned about the hour because you have a lot of party guests and want a lot of pictures, the Party Host can have the mascot performer start photos about 15 minutes into the party to make sure everyone who is interested can get a photo with the mascot, and then go back to more interactive activities if there is time. If you are having a longer publicity event or special circumstance where you strongly feel that more than one hour will be required, please fill out a contact form so that we can discuss your individual event and customize a timeline!
Will the character arrive in full costume or do they need somewhere to change?
For our mascot characters, we ask for a private room for the performer(s) to change in before the party. They will arrive 10-15 minutes prior to their scheduled start time so that you may show them to this room and they can start on time. If the only room you can provide is a public restroom, we ask that you stand outside the restroom door to make sure no one enters while the performer(s) are changing. This is so that we do not ruin the magic for any party guests, and also because occasionally the party host and mascot performer(s) are different genders.
Does the mascot need a break midway through the party?
Generally if you are booking the mascot for our standard 1 hour party, they do not need a break midway through. However, the mascot and Party Host have a way of signalling each other if they do need a break midway through. This is particularly common on days that are very hot. If it is over 90 degrees on the day of your party, the Party Host may build a 5 minute break into the one hour party. We ask that you keep the private room/restroom open to the Mascot performer throughout the time they’re at the party so that this break can be as quick and seamless as possible. If the mascot is ever at your party for longer than one hour, they will need a break every hour.
What can we do to help the mascot performer from overheating?
We ask that the mascot is provided with shade or an indoor options whenever possible. With temperatures over 90 degrees, one of these two will be required. We ask that you keep the private room/restroom open to the Mascot performer throughout the time they’re at the party so that if they need a quick water break, this can be done as quickly and seamlessly as possible.
Will the mascot performers talk?
No, the mascot performers will never talk so as to preserve character integrity, but they are very proficient performers who can interact silently and animate what they are trying to communicate to party guests. In addition, the party host is there to answer any questions that the children have of the mascot character, and handle all logistics with the client.
Is there any way to keep the balloons from popping?
While there really is no way to keep balloons from popping, we take the preventative measures that we can. We buy the absolute highest quality of balloons on the market that are the industry standard, and we replace our balloons regularly. Performers do not leave their balloons in hot areas for extended amounts of time (ie. their car), which can weaken balloons. We recommend putting your entertainer in a cool, indoor area to prevent as many balloons from popping as possible. Any time balloons are outside, they are much more likely to pop due to the heat and to touching surfaces like grass, concrete, slide, bounce house, etc. If you are planning a party at a park in the middle of the afternoon on a hot day, we would recommend picking an alternative activity, unless you understand and accept that many of the balloons will be popping after they are made.
Is the costume I see in the picture really the costume I’m going to get?
Yes, these are the exact costumes that will be at your party! For Miss Mouse we have two different costumes featured on our website, as well as a Red and Pink dress for each of the two models. For all other mascot characters, we only have one version. If there is a particular costume you are requesting for Miss Mouse, please email us a screenshot from our website and we can tell you whether or not this request can be accommodated!
Can your character come to a party venue/play place/school?
Yes! As long as the venue allows outside characters, we are happy to go there.
I’m ready to book! What’s next?
Wonderful! We require a 30% deposit, an electronic signed contract, and a brief info sheet about your party in order to secure a booking. We will email all three of these to you, and all of the booking can be done through email. Here’s the bare minimum we need to get started: party date, time of character’s arrival, character/entertainment choice, zip code of the party, first and last name for your contract, and your email address. Please send us a Booking Request to get going!
Do I need to supervise the children while the character is there?
Yes. Even though you are hiring a Party host, please understand that you are hiring a performer for your child’s party, not a babysitter, and the performer and is not responsible for the children’s safety. It is your responsibility to watch all children present for the entire duration of your character’s visit. The Pure Imagination Party Company shall not be held responsible for any injuries or property damage incurred by children or party guests at your event.
Is the paint and glitter you use for face painting safe for skin?
100%. All of our face painters use face paints that are designed for and safe for skin, and cosmetic glitter. While a few other brands of face paint are used, we generally use Wolfe face paint. You can find more information about the safety of Wolfe face paints here.
