What You Can Use To Host A Virtual Party - Vlog | Virtual Parties

Updated: Jul 6, 2023

For all the parents out there planning your very own virtual party you're going to need your very own platform. Of course, we always highly recommend hiring a children's entertainer to take care of everything from both an entertainment and technical perspective. Non-Stop Kids have performed thousands of virtual parties in just under a year alone. But if you decide you want to run your virtual party yourself we have plenty of options for you to choose from.


Our number one recommendation is Zoom. It's an amazing platform and very popular amongst virtual parties. This application is very easy to use. You can create a meeting link to send out to all of your children's friends for them to join through. The meeting is password protected to stop uninvited guests from joining, so make sure not to share any private information on public posts. Keep it to direct individual messaging.

Zoom will allow you with a 40 minute limit when you use the basic features. At Non-Stop Kids we provide the premium version of Zoom for all the parents to join. There's a waiting room in advance, unlimited time and even the option to record your whole virtual party to look back on anytime you choose. If you want the best of Zoom and all it's premier features, you will need to purchase it.

Facebook Groups/Rooms!

You can set up your own Facebook groups and invite everyone you want to take part in your virtual party. The group can be set up privately so no unvisited guests can join in, making it very secure. You can use this page to run your party. Unfortunately, unlike zoom, the people who are involved can't see each other, only interact through messages.

If you decide to host a Facebook Live stream, only the host of the stream will be seeable. Facebook also has another feature called Facebook Rooms. It runs very similar to Zoom and allows up to 50 people to chat at one time. It's available for free. To use this people need a Facebook account. More people don't have one then you may think, even in the age of social media.
