What people say about Fizzy Feet Adventures
(formerly Twirling Tots, rebranded in 2016 to a name more reflective of the class content)
Testimonials from parents, carers and child care professionals
Thank you so much for an absolutely fantastic party! My 4 year old and her friends all so very clearly enjoyed every minute of their Fizzy Feet Frozen adventure.
There were so many activities and such an array of equipment all wrapped up in a energetic and fun interactive story that kept them all thoroughly engaged.
Ziuta, Mum to Eliza (4)
Just wanted to give a big thumbs up, recommendation and thank you to Pippa Robson for delivering a superb Fizzy Feet birthday party for my 4 year old daughter at the weekend.
Pippa was absolutely awesome and had every single child (all 22 of them!) completely mesmerised and engaged for over an hour. She took them on a Frozen-themed adventure and had them vaulting, ducking, diving, tunnelling, throwing and bouncing through the session. Totally action packed and loads of fun!
Thank you and well done for being a star, Pippa!

My son, Bo, attends the Wednesday class and absolutely loves it so he was super excited when I told him Pippa was doing his 3rd birthday party.
We chose a superhero theme as Bo is obsessed with batman. The party was fantastic - Pippa worked so hard to make it fun and energetic and interesting for all of the kids there (girls and boys aged 3-5).
The mums and dads were blown away by the fun their kids were having - running around collecting clues, bashing stuff over and propelling balls into the air. It was so great to see them all having such fun!
Not only did Pippa keep 15 kids entertained for 45 minutes she also made Bo feel really special and that was amazing.

Well, yesterday's Fizzy Feet adventure was just amazing! My little girl Ella absolutely loved it and completely came into herself (dragon adventure).
Thank you, Pippa, for your kindness, patience, diligence, energy, imagination and love for the children in your classes. You are such a loved and valued part of Ella's little life. It means so much.
Amanda, Mum to Ella (3)
By far the best activity I do with my 3 year old. She doesn't always get involved in classes but at Fizzy Feet there is no stopping her. The classes are imaginative and different each week which helps to keep her attention.
And Pippa is so enthusiastic it is hard not to enjoy yourself. My daughter is always asking me what Fizzy Feet adventure is next!
Joanne, Mum to Emilia (3) and Toby
I attend Fizzy Feet with my 3 year old and it is by far the best thing we do together. Pippa could not be more enthusiastic, inspiring and hard working.
Every week has a different theme, so is always interesting and really sparks my son's imagination. Pippa also somehow manages to get him to listen and follow instructions - no mean feat!
There's nothing else like Fizzy Feet in the area and I would highly recommend it. Thank you, Pippa!
Amy, Mum to Owen (3)
My daughter absolutely loved her mini beast adventure Fizzy Feet party for her 4th birthday.
All the parents commented on how well you engaged the children and even the children who have never been to one of your classes got really involved.
It was such a lovely afternoon!
Helen, Mum to Ella (4)
Florence loves going to Twirling Tots classes every week and was really excited to have a Twirling Tots party for her 4th birthday. We chose a Neverland Adventure with Pirates and Fairies as our theme.
All of the children had a great time and were engaged throughout. Pippa has so much energy and put so much effort into setting up and organising all the games, which were really enjoyed by all of Florence's friends. We have had lots of lovely comments from other parents at the party!
Pippa also coordinated the hall hire for us which definitely took the stress out of organising the party.
Juliet, Mum to Florence (4)
We just had my daughter's 4th birthday party. My daughter loves Twirling Tots classes so naturally she wanted a Twirling Tots party. We decided on the Princesses and Knights Adventure theme.
She and all her friends had a great time and were entranced from beginning to end. Pippa had the children's attention the whole way through - no easy task with over 20 3- and 4-year olds!
Pippa is fab - she put so much effort and energy into the party. All I had to do was turn up with some food, a few balloons and a cake.
I can't recommend a Twirling Tots party highly enough - Pippa takes the stress out of organising a party.
Victoria, Mum to Evie (4)
Pippa ran an amazing Twirling Tots party for our daughter's fourth birthday. She pitched the games and activities perfectly for a mixed group of 3,4,5 and 6 year olds. They all particularly loved the ball games and were happily exhausted by the end of the party!
Thank you very much!
My 'class phobic' shy daughter who has tried lots of classes (mainly sitting on edge not joining in) LOVES this class. She joins in and gets totally absorbed on the theme. She asks to go back as soon as it's finished.
This really is high praise from her... Pippa is so full of energy and the activities really engage the children. Can't praise this class highly enough.
Victoria, Mum to Evie (3)
I cannot recommend Pippa's Twirling Tots classes highly enough. We tried several different classes in Harpenden and Twirling Tots was by far the biggest hit with my daughter.
Every week the class has a different theme and Maisie and I used to look forward to seeing what amazing ideas Pippa had created. Pippa creates every single class herself and uses endless props and accessories, many of which she has painstakingly made herself from scratch.
The classes themselves were a great mix of singing, dancing, actions and movement. Culminating with excitement over the weekly adventure and ending with a lovely story (always related to that week's theme) and a biscuit. Pippa's approach and warm character led to Maisie's confidence growing steadily over the two terms we attended. By the last few weeks I was barely noticed at all - great preparation for starting Reception.
Both Maisie and I will miss our afternoon session at Twirling Tots now she's started school. Words really can't do Pippa's class justice so go along and see for yourself - you won't be disappointed!
Sam, Mum to Maisie (4)
My son has been going to Twirling Tots for a few months now and we will both really miss it when Max goes to 'big school' in September. The sessions are fast paced and keep the children engaged, with a wide range of resources used which vary week to week. There are also regular songs and activities so the children have familiarity, and Pippa works really hard to develop the weekly theme.
Max has massively improved in confidence since starting at Twirling Tots which has been brilliant to see. The only downside is that I'm getting less exercise as I spent the first few weeks jumping around like a loony with him!
Lisa, Mum to Max (4)
Twirling Tots is a well run, interactive and fun activity providing opportunities for children to further develop their skills.
Children were offered plenty of opportunities to use essential skills, particularly in the areas of listening, movement and balance and imagination.
Overall the children engaged positively and interacted with the session in ways that promoted physical activity, muscle development, co-ordination, attention and musical knowledge, with some social development and bonding as well.
I wouldn't hesitate to recommend Twirling Tots to parents looking for a well designed, accessible music and movement activity group for young children.

Pippa's energy, warmth and enthusiasm is infectious, we all love Twirling Tots!
The weekly themes are well thought out, educational, topical and lots of fun. The structure and routine build confidence and are great preparation for nursery and school.
A brilliant start to the week and highly recommended! Thanks Pippa!

My daughters love attending Twirling Tots, Lyla (nearly 3) has grown in confidence since starting as a baby and progressing through the groups. Twirling Tots is designed for a range of abilities and challenges children to listen, follow instructions and repeat the dance moves to fun energetic music and cheerful singing. It challenges co-ordination and balance in a fun way.
The structure of the class is really important and Lyla recognises the stages. The bubbles signify the class is nearing to an end, followed by the trusty biscuit and lovely story.
Her younger sister, Lucy (16 months), also enjoys the music and props used and tries to keep up with her sister!!
It's clear to see Pippa gives the class all of her time and energy preparing them perfectly and with a different imaginative theme every week although staying within the same recognisable structure.
Lyla will will often ask to go to Twirling Tots when it's not even on!
Shauna, Mum to Lyla (nearly 3) and Lucy (18 months)
