Frequently Asked Questions

Q. CAN I HAVE A COMBINED BIRTHDAY PARTY FOR MY SON AND DAUGHTER?

A. Yes, most definitely. We can offer you a male and/or a female host. Pass-the-Parcel are also very experienced in entertaining children of various ages within the one group. We are happy to theme our parties any way you like. Although we don’t list all of our characters and themes, we are able to accommodate most requests, given enough time. If your child wants a specific game or song or really, really loves trains, then we will try our hardest to integrate this into the party.

Q. DOES PASS-THE-PARCEL PROVIDE PARTY FOOD?

A. No. Although, we can arrange for a caterer to contact you with a quote. However, we generally recommend that you keep food quite simple. We find that entertained children do not spend as much time snacking at parties as bored children, so save yourself some time and money! We recommend you keep food to basics, like sandwiches, fairy bread, cocktail frankfurts and fruit platters.

Q. HOW MUCH WILL THE EVENT COST?

A. Prices vary depending on what each person/company requires, where the event will be held, how many children will be at the event, how many entertainers they require etc. Please feel free to call the office or use the online enquiry form for an exact quote.

Q. WHEN CAN I HAVE MY BIRTHDAY PARTY?

A. Depending on our availability, you can have your party whenever you like! You can have a party on any day of the week, including weekends, evenings and public holidays! 

The earlier you can book your party, the more likely you are to get your preferred day and time. Aim to book at least 6 weeks in advance. If you are limited in time, give us a call…if we can’t help you, we can often refer you to someone who can!

Q. MY COMPANY IS HOSTING A LARGE EVENT AND WE THINK WE MIGHT NEED SEVERAL ENTERTAINERS, INCLUDING BALLOONS, STILTS, ROVING AND FACE PAINT… CAN YOU HELP?

A. Let us know if you are expecting a certain number of guests or whether it is a public event, the kind of venue and what other activities are being planned for the day. We can then coordinate a group of entertainers to best meet your needs. If you need several entertainers (including roving performers, stilt walkers, twirlers, jugglers, face painters and balloonologists), we offer discounts for group bookings. We can also help you to source other types of services like jumping castles, pony rides, mobile cafes and musicians.

Q. CAN PASS-THE-PARCEL HELP PROMOTE OUR EVENT?

A. Yes. Pass-the-Parcel can provide you with full colour images of samples of our work or characters for you to use in any advertising material you produce. Pass-the-Parcel bring appropriate signage to events to draw the crowd’s attention to what is available, for how long and for how much. We can also advertise your event online and on our FACEBOOK page and are happy to negotiate for character’s to be available for photo opportunities prior to upcoming events.
