I'm having my party in a park or community hall. Can your equipment be delivered to and used in these locations?

We will work with you to ensure that you have your equipment delivered when you have access to your venue and collect before you have to vacate.




Under what circumstances will my bond not be refunded?


There are 4 circumstances that could result in your part or all of your bond being withheld; 1) Damage to equipment (additional costs may be associated) Damage includes but is not limited to;

  • tears in vinyl,
  • stains left on vinyl due to food or face paint,
  • damage to equipment due to being left in rain or direct sunlight,
  • damage to the structure of equipment due to incorrect or malicious use
  • damage to EVA mats caused by high heel shoes, chairs or gazebo legs or pegs
2) Theft of equipment (Additional costs will be associated) 3) Equipment has been returned in unacceptable condition and requires extra cleaning. This includes but is not limited to;
  • face paint, chewing gum, frosting, stickers or any other sticky substace on any of the equipment including toys and ball pit balls
  • large amounts of food in the stairs of the ball pit, climbing bridge and pyramid climber
4) Ball pit balls and small soft play shapes have not been collected and put back into the bags provided prior to scheduled pick up. Please ensure you have read our Terms and Conditions of Hire thoroughly.




Why can't I collect the equipment from you?


To ensure that the equipment that you hire from us is in excellent condition, we are VERY particular about the way our equipment is transported. Except our smaller soft play items such as the Little Builders Sets and Counting Blocks and toys such as slides and rockers, the majority of our equipment is quite large and heavy (our ball pit and climbing stairs weigh 25kg each). The smallest length ball pit walls we have is 2m and in our years of doing business with clients like you, we have come across very few that are able to fit at a minimum; 4 ball pit walls, 2000 balls, a slide and EVA mats in their family car or who have an enclosed 7x5 flatbed trailer. Besides ensuring that the equipment is transported in a safe manner, the convenience of the service shouldn't be discounted. Do you really want to be driving around on the day of your party collecting and returning equipment? We are certian that you will have better things to do with your time! We do allow collection of Tables and Chairs. This is by prior agreement only.





Setup and Safety

Is your equipment safe?


Yes, one of the main reasons we started our business was to offer safe, fun play equipment for toddlers. Our equipment is thoroughly checked before and after each hire, and each piece of equipment that we hire comes with a Product Information Sheet, highlighting any safety instructions.




Is your equipment clean?


It sure is! All of our equipment (including ball pit balls) is cleaned between each hire. The Product Information Sheet that we supply with each item also highlights any care instructions for the equipment. In the event of any little accidents by your children, we kindly ask that you ensure the equipment is cleaned straight away. Please also ensure that equipment is returned to us in a clean state, as a cleaning fee may apply if the equipment is returned in an unacceptable condition.




Do I need to set up the equipment?


Most our equipment requires setting up, e.g. laying EVA mats and connecting soft play pieces together with velcro. Any items that require setting up come with easy-to-follow instructions on the Product Information Sheet. Our Elliptical Ball Pit is slightly more complex and requires setting up by us, and we will arrange this at the time of booking. Should you require assistance setting up the equipment please discuss this with us. A setup fee may apply.




Do you have an age limit for your equipment?


We provide recommended ages for each item of equipment that we hire, however as every child is different, it is important that the equipment hired suits the ages and ability of the children that will be using it. And whilst our equipment is safe, and in most cases soft, supervision by an adult is still required




How much room will I need?


Some of our pieces of equipment are quite large. Please review the measurements that we provide for the items that you wish to hire, to ensure they will fit in your designated area, allowing for adequate space around them also. We are happy to assist you with this further when you make a booking enquiry.




What if the equipment breaks during my hire period?


Please advise us immediately if any damage or breakages occur to the equipment. We will then assess the damage, its cause and safety/usability. Please ensure you read our Terms and Conditions of Hire, as payment may be required for any repairs or to replace the damaged item(s). Please ensure the damaged equipment is not accessible to children.




What if it rains?


Our soft play equipment is water resistant, however we ask for it not to be used in wet conditions as it can become slippery and unsafe. The equipment is not waterproof, so it cannot be left in the rain. If you are able to provide cover for the equipment in the event of wet weather (e.g. a tarpaulin/marquee) then we are happy for you to use it in wet weather. Please consider the possibility of wet weather and ensure any alternate arrangements have been made before you make your booking.




What surfaces can the equipment be setup on?


All of our large pieces (ball pits and climbers) are supplied with EVA mats for the equipment to be setup on. This means that the equipment can go on grass, concrete, wood, tiles, carpet etc. Due to the porous nature of the EVA mats we do not allow the equipment to be setup directly on soil or on driveways that have oil or fuel spills. If this is your only area available you may setup the EVA mats on a tarp first. The equipment can be setup indoors or outside. If setting up outdoors please consider the weather. If setup in direct sunlight the equipment does get very hot to touch. We recommend allocating an area in the shade of trees or under a gazebo or patio.
