Birthday Parties at Home

birthday4

Birthday parties have come a long way since we were children. There was a time when home parties were the only option – Musical Chairs, Pass the Parcel, and that poor donkey who had lost his tail. The times have changed! No longer are the parents responsible for doing all of the work. Make a call, tidy up your home, get a cake, and let these folks do the rest!

A1 HERO

If your birthday boy or girl is a big fan of Super Heroes, then bring on the A1 Hero team! They have multiple party options for most of their themes: Star Warriors, Amazing Spider Superhero, the Avenging Superheroes, the Bat superhero, the Ninja Turtles superheroes, and the Man of Steel. Your child will believe their favourite hero is right there in their home! With scripts and activities, these superheroes will rock your party. See HERE for more information.
