How to Throw the Ultimate Children’s Party
Organising the ultimate children’s birthday party takes military precision, a great deal of brain power, a shed load of creativity and not to mention time. Hands up, if you don’t have the time or you’re a little stuck for inspiration yet want to give your child a party to remember? Both my hands are firmly in the air.
So what now?
After a little field research at the school gates, I discovered Froggle Parties, a children’s entertainment company who provide parties for children of all ages. Starting from the baby & toddler age, all the way through to the teen years (16yrs). As well as tailoring their parties for mixed age groups too.
I love a recommendation but I also love an unbiased view so I googled ‘froggle parties reviews’ and found hundreds of amazing reviews.
There is no denying that the children at a Froggle Party are thoroughly entertained. I loved this review from one of the parents:
“You kept all the children riveted for the whole two hours – an amazing accomplishment for a group of 25 children of mixed ages. You also made our daughter feel very special as you gave her lots of attention. We’ve already received glowing feedback from a number of parents so I wouldn’t be at all surprised if you got some further bookings. One mum asked her son which was the best bit and he said that it was all the best bit!” Abi Fitzgerald
So what makes Froggle Parties so popular?
The Froggle team curate their shows in-house. Every one of their shows are all devised and created by them so the entertainment is completely unique to them, and kids absolutely love it! They can also make things bespoke to your child’s theme, to make your Children’s party a truly unique and memorable experience. They offer highly trained professional entertainers that they train one to one themselves.
Froggle Parties create a lot of different parties, and I mean a lot! There huge offering of party packages includes Magic Shows, Discos, Science, all round entertainers, bubble parties, Balloon Modelling, Clowns, Face Painting as well as characterized & themed parties such as Fairies, Princesses, Dinosaurs, Superheroes and much much more. With a huge variety of themes, there really is something for everyone.
The team are currently working on some new shows which promise to be rip-roaringly entertaining. I’m told it is filled with lots of catchy tunes, plenty of dancing as well as magic & puppet shows. Sadly Froggle Parties, cant reveal the details of their new shows but they’ve said “Kids are going to love it!!”.
I caught up with Froggle Parties, who claim that one of the secrets of their success is how they adapt the tone & pace of the party, depending on how the children are on the day, ensuring your little ones are gripped from start to finish.
“Too many entertainers have a fixed routine they plough through even if kids aren’t listening. ” Says Michael Rossini (Director of Froggle Parties). “If kids are hyper and want to jump around, we’re not going to sit them down for a magic show, just because thats whats next on the list. Thats not the mark of a good entertainer, yet so many people do exactly that. It baffles me. You have to adapt to your audience on the day, and thats exactly what we do!”
Froggle recruit the very best entertainers who have heaps of energy, and who love working with kids. “You have to have a naturally high energy level about you to be a children’s entertainer, and you absolutely have to be a big kid yourself!” Michael says. “Otherwise kids won’t relate to you as well. At Froggle we’re all a bit mad and thats why children love us!”
Here is an example of their deluxe party package (one of their most popular options):
- Children’s entertainer dressed in full costume
- Puppet show
- Brilliant party games
- Mini disco (including limbo dancing, conga, dancing competitions)
- Rocket balloons
- Touchable bubbles
- Prizes for every child
- Balloon modelling for every child
- Brilliant bubble machine and snow machine
- Tonnes of special birthday balloons for birthday child

The duration of the parties range from 1 hour, 1.5 hours to 2 hours based on your specific needs. The Baby & Toddler parties are slightly shorter at 45 minutes.
As well as providing the entertainment, the Froggle Parties website has a cool little venue finder, which takes the stress out of searching for a location for your event. I inserted my postcode and 50 venues came up all within a 4 mile radius, with the closet venue 0.3 miles away from my house – so pretty close by. You can adjust the radius to suit your preference.
The website is a brilliant source of information, not only about the parties, tips on hosting a children’s party, a blog, videos, party shop and downloadable invites, name labels, certificates and thank you cards. With more being added later this year.
Froggle Parties have really thought of everything, taking the stress out of organizing your children’s special day With my daughter’s 2nd birthday on the horizon, throwing her the ultimate children’s party will be a piece of cake.
