REVIEW: Cheeky Little Monkeys Soft Play Party Hire

25 February 2018

If you are like me, just the thought of putting on a kids’ party can be enough to send you into a spin. I love the kids dearly, but the thought of entertaining 20 toddlers in my own house terrifies me.

To save our sanity, for the twins’ birthday this year we decided to test out one of the region’s newest soft play party hire services, Cheeky Little Monkeys, a decision that turned the day into a huge success.

The basics

A family-run business based on the Sunshine Coast, Cheeky Little Monkeys hire soft play equipment for kids ages 6 months to 5 years old. The equipment is suitable for all occasions: birthdays, christenings, playgroups, Christmas parties, mothers group catch ups, corporate functions… and more.

How it works

Booking was really easy. Simply give them a call and chat about what the requirements are. If you are unsure, one of the team will come out and check the space beforehand so you know which package will best suit your venue.

1.5 hours before the event starts, they come to the venue, unload all the equipment and set it up. At the end of the 3-hour hire, they will return, pack it all up and take it away. Couldn’t be simpler and we didn’t have to do a thing!

The equipment

There’s stacks of equipment available, but to make your decision simpler the equipment is offered in three straightforward packages:

  • Petite Package: Designed for small areas you get a 3m x 3m ball pit and balls, bouncing buddies and balls, building blocks and various other small soft items.
  • Alexis Package: This mid-sized package consists of 3m x 3m ball pit and balls, cube climbing apparatus, building blocks, bouncing buddies and balls and other various small soft items.
  • Bella Package: Their large and most popular package consists of 3m x 3m ball pit and balls, large balancing beam with slides and steps, building blocks, bouncing buddies and balls and other various small soft play items.

You can also add on a mini jumping castle and lolly/popcorn bar to any of the packages to really make the party a success!

The verdict

The equipment was all very well maintained and was nice and clean. It was set up perfectly so all the little ones could use the equipment without any clashes, and being so simple to organise we could relax knowing the kids were having an absolute blast in a safe and fun space. At the end of the day, the twins were exhausted and said they had “the best birthday ever!”

What we loved most was how easy it made the day. From booking to packing away, Cheeky Little Monkey’s made the whole party an easy one, and will certainly get them back next year!
