What do you charge for delivery? 

We personally deliver within 50 miles of where we're based, in Tunbridge Wells. We charge approx £10 per hour travel time (and set up time if required) plus 45p p/m. For weddings we'll deliver on the morning of your event and pick up the next day (depending on your timings and our next bookings). For kids parties we'll deliver and pick up within 3 - 4 hours at your hired venue. We can also arrange late evening pick ups if your venue needs to be vacated, for a little extra charge. For national delivery, please contact us for an estimate and we'll arrange a courier. 

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 in our expectations and know that some wear and tear is likely.  All we ask is that care is taken and items are left in a clean and usable state. All our items are hard wearing so although we do ask for a deposit, we'll only withhold this where we feel suitable care has not been taken.

Do you maintain your supplies? 

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

Will the products I've hired be substituted?

All items are reserved for a specific customer's event. In the unlikely event that the product(s) you have booked 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?

Do you have a minimum spend?

What about items that aren't listed on your site?


Can I hire for longer than a day?

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.
