Birthday party shows for kids.

There are a range of alternative entertainment options for kids in Melbourne.
Even if you live in Victoria and are a long way from Melbourne, chances are you have a large number of choices.
Besides local providers, there are always entertainers who are happy to travel into the bush, even though they may charge you a little extra to do so.
Many kids parties include such staples as a jumping castle, animal farm or a clown. But these days the choice is far wider and may include bowling, rock climibing, laser skirmish and other very different themes to parties. One option that can be done indoors or out or summer or winter is a reptile party. The animals seem tolerant of most kinds of weather, except extreme hot or extreme cold and notwithstanding these variables, the handlers are aware of the limitations of their animals and plan their day accordingly. On a hot day the animals may travel in ice-lined boxes. On a cold day, they get moved about in a heated car and if stationary at an event, may come with undercage heating mats or cables.
Put another way, this is one headache you, the party host, will not have to deal with. A typical reptile show will last about an hour to an hour and a half, depending on the age of the audience.
For younger kids, the time frame is less as they simply don't have the attention psan of older kids. At a typical party, the usual script is for the reptile display to start soon after the kids arrive, before moving onto the food and the cake, this usually being at the end of the party. There is a good reason why the cake is done at the end, and that is because the sugar tends to fire up the kids and it is best for this chemical reaction to take place after the kids have gone home.
That way the dramas occur at someone else's place and all everyone remembers is your own party having a great show and nothing else. As a word of advice, reptile shows and kids reptile parties are very popular and the people that do them are often run off their feet.
So the general rule is to make the booking before you tell your friends and send out the invitations. Also it is worth noting that once you let friends know about the coming reptile show at your next birthday party, a lot will want to bring siblings and others, so expect a bigger than anticipated roll up of people. Yes, there will be a few people who may not want to go near the reptiles, or even come to the party. But these people are generally outweighed by those who can't get enough of them. Hence the general advice that a reptile party will tend to bring you a bigger than normal crowd. And while a bite from a reptile is rare, what isn't is the animals defecating on people as they get handle.
There is a reason for this and that is because tghe movement makes them defecate and when they are not at a party being handled, they tend to sit around in their cages doing very little.
Of course for the reptile handler it is great that they defecate at the party, as that means one less cage to clean up at home.
