What Can Parents Who Are Planning A Kids Party Learn From Apple?

Updated: Aug 30, 2023

As you will have heard before, Non-Stop Kids perform over 8,000 parties every single year. We literally speak to thousands of parents every single month regarding a child's birthday party. Over 90% of clients say they would book us again for providing a hassle free experience. It's no secret that parents raise concerns about our entertainers handling over 20 children at a time.

Valuable Lessons for Parents Planning a Kids Party from Apple

Most parents can't even begin to imagine being an entertainer who has the role of holding the attention of 20 plus children for two hours. But that's never a problem because children's entertainment is something we specialise in. We perform hundreds of parties every month as well as hold contracts with resort parks like Drayton Manor.

Let's give you an example that you can probably relate to. I am terrible at DIY; the thought of laying a laminate floor scares me to death. However, to a professional floor fitter, it would be a walk in the park. It’s the same with entertaining children. Even though it would scare your typical parent, to us it’s another day in the office!

Anyway, in this blog, we want to give you one huge tip that will really help you if you are planning a kid's party.

Keep It Simple!

Parents try to overcomplicate things when planning their child’s party. The reason is because they want their child’s party to be perfect, they try to shoehorn a crazy amount of things into two hours. We performed at a party recently and we supplied two entertainers, something we very rarely do since our entertainers are highly qualified to perform. At the party, they had already booked a pony dressed up like a Unicorn, an animal man, two bouncy castles, three face painters, a juggler and a ring announcer. This was totally overkill and the kids at the party didn’t know what to do or where to go first!

What Should Parents Do?

The best way to think about this is Apple. Apple is well known for keeping their operating system simple. They make it so that people can pick up their products and start using them immediately. Their customers are loyal because they enjoy the experience of using the product. While their products are more expensive, their customers are happy to pay extra money because they want the ease of use.

Statistically, there is a good chance you are using an Apple product to read this blog. If you are, you know how easy to use Apple products are. It’s the same case with a kids party. If you overcomplicate them, it’s going to cause you more stress and not bring any extra enjoyment for your child or their friends.

Our Hassle Free Package is designed to make it as easy as possible for the client. We do everything for you, you just feed the kids and hand them their coats on the way out. The point is whether you book us or something else the key thing to remember is ‘less is more’. You will be tempted to try and book everything and squeeze as much as possible into your child’s party. However, the most successful parties are the ones that keep it simple.

To be clear, you don’t have to book us. Our childrens entertainer just ask that you please keep it simple and don’t try and book everything into a single two hour period. As well as making the party more successful by taking this approach, it will also save you money.

That's all from us today and we hope it helped. If you would like to speak to us about your child’s party, visit our website through the banner below to fill in the form for a no obligation consultation or call us on 0333 301 3002. Thanks again for reading and we look forward to hearing from you.
