Little Peeps Fun Place is the brainchild of Christine Maentz (a.k.a. Ms. Tickle). Christine has been a successful children’s entertainer in the Knoxville area since 2011.
The details of her her entertainer career can be found at KnoxvillePartyMagic.com where she offers a range of services geared towards entertaining children up to the age of 6 or 7.
Christine had been toying with the idea of opening a store front but couldn’t pinpoint what would be successful. After a trial run temporarily offering balloons from a retail location she realized that the demographics of that particular area (Maryville), needed something different.
She noted how young moms congregated in an area at Foothills Mall where they allowed their very young children to play freely. Although the Mall does offer a play area, the moms remained in the area referred to as Center Stage. Possibly because that area provided seating, sunshine & access to food & beverages!
After polling as many moms as she could, Christine realized that a party rental room that catered to very young children could be just what the area needed. Since this sort of venue would be set up to host little ones while partying, why not also make it accessible to moms and their little ones on regular days – fun and games without a party!
Hence the creation of Little Peeps Fun Place! The “Party & Play Venue for Little Peeps!” By offering a combination rental party room with an inside play area designed for little children, Christine is confident this endeavor will be successful while bringing a much needed resource to Maryville.
