The amazing story of Wishkers.

Wishkers was founded in 2007 by Barbara Cadieux to put a smile on children's faces. Knowing the importance children place on saving precious memories or dreams, she built Wishkers to help them create their very own special secret places. Together Barbara & Pops hosted many Wishkers events over the years and have now decided to retire, passing the business to the next generation of the Cadieux family.

Jody Cadieux, the proud new owner of Wishkers, is excited to continue the family tradition. Jody is a mom of two and a former home daycare provider. Combining her love for children and her creative skills, Jody makes sure every Wishkers event is a memorable one. 






My daughter had a dog themed birthday party and I ordered all dogs for the kids to stuff. It was a huge success. All the kids were thrilled to come to a birthday party and leave with a gift. Barbara even included an adorable birthday sweater for my daughter's stuffed animal to wear. It kept all the kids and parents entertained and occupied for a good length of time. I highly recommend the party in a box for any birthday.

Everything was just wonderful! Thanks so much for your assistance. The children had a great time as well as the adults. I gave your card to several of the parents because they loved the idea and want to contact you to schedule a party. What a fun time for my daughter and her friends. A birthday party to remember!

Wishkers came to our day care center for a Snowman Workshop. The children had so much fun handstuffing the adorable snowmen. Barbara was so nice with the children and we all had a great time. We are happy we found Wishkers as it was also convenient to have her travel to our day care center.

I am so excited to write this review, because wishkers really made my 4yr old daughter's birthday a huge success! Boy's and girls alike enjoyed picking and stuffing an animal of thier choice. Wishkers has so many animals to suite any child of any age, which entertained guests from 4 to 14!! Everything was the highest quality it was hard to choose from all the options!! Barbara was also so wonderful to all our guests, and she was clear in all explanation making soo easy! No mess and everyone just raved with enjoyment!! Thanks again Wishkers!!

The Wishker animals were a huge hit at Liam's party.  The parents were as excited as the children when they saw them.  Everyone was impressed and was happy with the animal selected for them.  Thank you also for the birthday outfit for Liam's Wishker.  He was so excited and sleeps with Buddy the Dog every night.   Thank You!


Thank you for the wonderful birthday party for Juliette.  She had a great time and loves her unicorn and Emily loves her doggie!  The kids had a lot of fun making their stuffed buddies!  We loved the photo card you sent us after the party!  Thank you for helping us to give Juliette a special and unique party.  You and your niece were great.  We would be happy to be a referral for you if it's ever needed.  Sincerely,

- Amy & Pete

Wishkers was invited to my granddaughter's 4th birthday party and Barbara made it a very special occasion.  She is absolutely wonderful.  Her collection of animals is exceptional and large.  Her connection with the children is terrific.  She took a picture of the children at the party with their newly finished animals which my granddaughter will always have to remember the very special birthday with Wishkers!!   Barbara will add wonderful memories to any child's birthday and they will have a lovely keepsake as a party favor!  Thank you so much Barbara - wishing you many years of continued success!



I typically don't send thank you notes for a thank you note that I receive, but the one we received from you guys definitely warrants that! Thank you so much for the sweet thank you note! This is going in Avery's file so that she will forever remember her 6th birthday party! It is such a nice reminder of the day. Also, please tell Pops thank you for us as well. He did a great job with the kids and was really so patient and sweet to them. I really appreciate all of his hard work. All of the girls had an excellent time-they are still talking about it! -Whitney
