But honey, what about the kids?

What About The Kids was created after being faced with the question as to what to do with the kids when invited to events.


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 birthdays or for outdoor events choose our mini teepees, scooters and bouncy cows - which are always a hit with the adults too!  

For weddings our little white tables and chairs are perfect, especially when dressed with tulle bows or for those wanting a vintage look we've got a range of retro furniture.

We also know how expensive and stressful events can be, so everything we offer is affordable, easy to ordered and delivered with no fuss. 

So, 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.


I want to make it easy for anyone planning a party to include kids - whether at a wedding, christening or family event.

Ellie Ryan 

Founded in 2015, What About The Kids is the brain child of Ellie, who realised there was little on offer to keep kids entertained at weddings. She started by supplying stylish and affordable kids corners at local events.  Once word got out the business quickly expanded and now hires out a complete range of party furniture and equipment across the UK - all just for kids.

Ellie lives in Kent with her husband, a lively Italian Spinone and their three children, who much to their delight, get to test all products for robustness and enjoyment. 

Ellie is also a chartered tax advisor with 12 years experience working in the financial sector.
