Welsh/bilingual Discotots Birthday Parties are now also available to book!
We cover Cardiff and the Vale, and will travel up to 30mins e.g. as far as parts of Newport, Risca, Cwmbran, Caerphilly, Rudry, Pontypridd and Bridgend.
Discotots children’s birthday parties are exciting, contemporary and upbeat! Disco lights; bubbles; funky versions of action songs; fun dances; instruments; whacky puppets; exciting props (pompoms, ribbons, scarves, parachute and lots more!); and musical/party games they’ll love! Each party is based on a winning formula but all of the action songs/dances/games, and general music played can be tailored to your child’s age, interests and favourite tunes!
Discotots parties ensure that the children are kept entertained for the full 2hrs whilst you sit back, relax, and enjoy the fun! To ensure that you get the best out of your party we will advise on numbers and appropriate venues.
We would be arriving approximately half an hour before the party to set up the disco equipment and props. Most halls charge for 2hrs, allowing half hour either side for setting up/packing away.
To fit around food I usually recommend the following times (although we can sometimes be flexible):
11am – 1pm (children eating at 12noon) or 3 – 5pm(children eating at 4pm)
The fee is £150 for up to 35 children (we usually recommend 25-30 children but understand that some nursery/school classes are larger).
A £50 deposit is payable on booking (cheque or BACS), and the balance is payable via BACS by the Thursday before the party, or cash on the day. Parties of up to 40 children cost £160 (the extra £10 is paid to the party facilitator). We do not cater for parties of more than 40.
Structure & Activities
Discotots parties are fast paced and dynamic, and the children are kept entertained for the full 2hrs – so you can relax and enjoy your little one’s special day! Activities include modern funky versions of fun action songs (for younger children), simple dances/party dances, both original and traditional exciting musical games, parachute games and team games. Children love the large variety of props used throughout (instruments, puppets, pompoms, scarves, ribbons and lots more!!!).
First 15-20mins – Your little one’s favourite music can be played for the children to dance to whilst everyone arrives. The disco and bubble machine are running (fog machine also available for older children), and hula hoops are put out.
Once the majority of guests have arrived the first set of activities will commence.
Half time (12 or 4pm) – The children will then be organized to go to the food tables to eat and to sing happy birthday with your cake.
As soon as the children have finished eating, we begin the second set of activities and provide sweets/chocolates as prizes. There is also a little bit of time for a boogie to your child’s favourite song to finish. Some children like to have the opportunity to thank their guests or to sing their favourite song on our ‘special’ microphone at the end.
Venue & Number of Guests
The venue and number of guests being invited will need to be discussed so I can advise on what will work best for the relevant age group/size of hall. The agreed number of children should not be exceeded as it may go over the capacity for the hall when considering the activities the children will be doing. Inviting too many children may lead to us having to restrict activities if they are deemed to be unsafe/if there is not enough space, or we may not have enough props for all of the children to participate.
A hall with some curtains or blinds is recommended so the children can benefit from the effects of the lights.
We do have a great deal of equipment and props to load into the building, so ease of access is important (for example, we tend not to facilitate parties in venues where we are unable to park directly outside the building, or where it is necessary to negotiate flights of steps). We are usually able to advise and provide contact numbers for appropriate halls.
I don’t normally write reviews, but we have been so impressed by Discotots and the party Zoe recently arranged for our son’s 5th birthday that I wanted to share our experience. From first contact with Zoe, she was so helpful, cheerful and organised in planning the party perfectly tailored to our son’s interests and the age range of the children attending. On the day itself, the whole 2 hours ran so smoothly, the children loved all the games and best of all Tracey made it all seem effortless. We loved the personal touches such as playing our son’s favourite songs, and all the other parents were really impressed too – we had lots of comments about it being the best party they’d been to, and one mum commented that her son doesn’t normally like to join in with party games and this was the first time he’d taken part and loved it – I’d say this was down to Discotots’ skill of creating a fun, flexible and relaxed atmosphere. My husband and I were able to relax and enjoy watching our boy enjoy his big day. Can’t recommend highly enough! Thanks Discotots!
Hannah hosted my sons 3rd birthday party. She was AMAZING! The games were age appropriate and themed for the party. We were especially grateful it was bilingual. We will definitely be using DISCOTOTS for future parties.
Discotots hosted my daughters 4th birthday party which was a huge success. Zoe kept all 35 children entertained the whole time with ages from 1 to 9yrs! She made my daughter feel very special and it was great to watch all the other children having such a good time. Lots of parents commented afterwards on how well it was run, what a good party it was & how entertaining it was for the children. Would definately recommend to anyone. Thank you Discotots. X
My friend and I booked Discotots for our daughters joint 3rd birthday party. We liked the idea of someone else running the party so we could enjoy the time with our children. It was fantastic! Claire was lovely and great with the kids. We had 25 boys and girls, aged from 7 months to 6 years old and they all enjoyed themselves. Our daughters are huge Frozen fans and Claire played loads of songs from the film and did themed games. Our girls and their friends had a fantastic time and are still talking about it. They want every party to be a ‘Frozen Disco’!
Hannah from Discotots held my daughter’s 4th birthday party last weekend. She was absolutely fantastic! It was so lovely to be able to have the party in both English and Welsh and Hannah was so full of energy, keeping 20 toddlers entertained for 2 hours! The kids absolutely loved her and the parents couldn’t praise her enough. Zoe was so efficient in organising the party, even helping me find a suitable location. I will definitely be using Discotots in the future. Thank you for a fab party!
Clare did a Disco for my 6 year old son and 23 of his friends. It was fun filled and fantastic from start to finish. would recommend for anyone wanting a stress free but awesome party.
We were planning a joint party for 2 six year olds and hired Discotots to keep them and their 20 plus guests entertained. Hannah was great, setting up the disco quickly whilst entertaining early arrivals with hula hoops so I could sort out the tables and food. She then organized a series of high-energy games and dances, which all the children loved, Hannah took time to involve the shyer members of the party and made sure everyone was included. As some of the children were Welsh Speakers, she spoke in Welsh and English. The 2 birthday kids got a chance to dance to their favourite songs at the end and were very happy. We had about 25 children there in total, who’s ages ranged form 2 to 8 . Everyone had a fantastic time. I would definitely use Discotots again ,Hannah made the party memorable and very easy for all the parents!
My son attented disco tots at the age of 2 years he was very shy and wasn’t willing to join in, zoe was brilliant easing him in and made him feel welcome he loved discotots lots of games and laughter. Unfortunately I had to go back to work so kian had to go to nursery full time so I was unable to take him. Last year I enterted the discotots competition100s of members entered. Kian and I were over the moon when we found out we won. The weekend just gone Sunday 14th kian had his 5th birthday . I was very worried kian had out grown musical instruments etc but zoe proved me wrong . She did a fantatic job of keeping them glued and happy. Kian had a fab party one to remember could not of done it without discotots.
The party was brilliant. It was a triple joint birthday with 35 kiddies and every one of them had a great time. The games were such good fun and the kiddies were buzzing! Thanks.
