What are the delivery costs?

When will you deliver?

For local hires (near where we're based in Tunbridge Wells) we will personally deliver and collect for free. For national hires, please contact us for an estimate for travel costs and time (and set up time if needed). We will always try to combine deliveries to keep our charges to you as low as possible.

For weddings we usually deliver the morning of your event and pick up the next day. For parties we'll deliver and pick up to your venue within a few hours of your party. Late evening pick ups can also be arranged for a little extra charge, if your venue needs to be vacated.

Can I cancel my booking?

Yes of course, we just request six weeks notice to be able to offer you a full refund.

What about breakages?

We're realistic and know that some wear and tear is likely.  All we ask is that care is taken and items are left clean and usable. All our items are hard wearing so although we ask for a deposit, we'll only withhold this where we feel suitable care hasn't been taken.

Do you maintain your supplies? 

Yes, between every hire we thoroughly clean and sanitise all products, service and check for damage.

Will products ever be substituted?

Upon payment all your items will be reserved for your event. In the unlikely event that any have become damaged from a previous event and this will affect your booking we will contact you immediately and offer a full refund or substitution.

Do you offer childcare?

Is there a minimum spend?

What are your Ts & Cs?

Although we do not offer childcare ourselves we can recommend plenty of nanny agencies. All products must be used under supervision.


No, you can hire as much or as little as you need.


We're always looking to add to our collection so please share your ideas.



Costs indicated are per day (although depending on time of scheduled pick up and drop off the products may be with you for longer). For two days the price will be double but we offer a discounted rate for longer periods.


Definately.We also have public liability cover up to one million pounds.

What About The Kids was founded by Ellie Ryan, mother of three small children as a result of being faced with the question 'what about the kids?' when invited to friends' parties.




There's plenty of choice if you're looking to hire a bouncy castle or play equipment, but when it comes to keeping kids amused for hours there's little on offer.

By giving kids plenty to do, grown up guests can sit back, relax and enjoy the event.

We provide everything you need to keep the little people entertained - from games, toys and furniture to party accessories - all just for kids. Our tables and chairs are popular for tea parties and can be themed to a favourite character or for outdoor events choose our mini teepees, scooters and bouncy cows - the current favourite and usually a hit with adult guests too!  

For couples planning a wedding, kids equipment can also be pretty garishly coloured and probably not the desired 'look' you'd want at your wedding. Our little white tables and chairs are perfect when dressed up with pretty bows or for those wanting a vintage look we've got a range of more retro furniture.

Events can be expensive and stressful, so everything we offer is affordable, can be ordered easily and delivered and collected with little fuss. As a mother I also value good quality, so it's important that all our stock is up to scratch. Much to my kids delight they get to test all our products for robustness and enjoyment!

If you're planning a party with little people and don't know where to start, get in touch and we'll make it a little easier.
