create your own cuddly toy


Every child will have a small (or large..) collection of stuffed animals, but a cuddly toy you've created yourself...who can beat that? :))

Using our animal templates and all the fabrics and buttons they need, the children compose and create their own cuddly toy!

We don't actually allow them to use the sewing machine, but even though we take care of sewing front and back together, the children still definitely feel like they've created their own stuffed animal.

After all, they've done quite a lot of work themselves: choosing the template, collecting funny fabrics, tracing the template, cutting the fabric, creating the face with buttons and thread - yes, they will be handling needles and pins :) - and of course: stuffing the animal!

So it's no wonder that the "end product" totally feels like their own creation, and their new cuddly friend will be their favourite toy for many years to come :)

Curious?

target group | time frame


This workshop party is developed for children celebrating their 7th-12th birthday.

Mind you, this may seem like a girls only party, but as it turns out boys love making cuddly toys as well (although they tend to ignore the bunny and go straight for the monster :)

The maximum number of children to attend (including the birthday girl or boy) is 8.

The entire party takes 3 hours

ingredients


location | at home or at our studio


This workshop party can be celebrated at home as well as at our studio. Mind you, if we celebrate a party at yours, we assume you will take care of cake, drinks and snacks, but if we celebrate at ours, catering is included.

catering


Our catering consists of a nice chocolate birthday cake with the name of the birthday girl/boy on it, a very special drink (we don't want to spoil the surprise, but we call it "ditch water"... yes we do :) served in nice theme cups and several little snacks, both sweet and savoury.

costs


A) do-it-yourself | not applicable
B) party at yours | two party planners attending | no catering: 190 euro
C) party at ours | two party planners attending | catering included: 225 euro

travelling fees & parking fees
For trips to and from parties elsewhere we charge 40ct traveling fees per kilometre. Any parking fees paid by us while celebrating a party at yours will go on your bill.

party after 16:30 | evening surcharge
In principal, our children's parties end at 16:30 at the latest. At some occasions we may be able to organize a party ending at a later hour but in those cases, however, a 15% evening surcharge for the entire party is applied. (225 + 15% = 258,75)

late Friday night party | golden tip
If the birthday girl or boy attends school until 15:00 hours on Fridays, you may want to consider throwing a late party on a Friday, starting at 15:30 hours and including a 30 minute high tea (posing as 'dinner') at the end. All in all the party would than last until 19:00 hours, but on arrival at home the children have had their supper and, after all, it's the weekend, so perhaps their parents won't mind, just this once :) This scenario is rapidly gaining momentum, and all the children seem to love it, but off course it does come at a price. The total cost of this late Friday night party would be:
225 (the party) + 15% (evening surcharge) + 75 (high tea) = 333,75 euro.

party during the weekend | weekend surcharge
This party can be celebrated on Saturdays and Sundays, but it would have to be at your home. Our studio, you see, is not available for children's activities during the weekend, but luckily we are :) For weekend parties a 25% weekend surcharge is applied. (190 + 25% = 237,50)

btw
All our prices include VAT.

our studio
Our studio/atelier is located at the second floor and there is no lift. The address: Laan van Meerdervoort 710, Den Haag | tel: 070-364.36.25. One of the inhabitants of the house is a cat, but we can keep her out of the party room if you want; should any of your guests be allergic for (or frightened of) cats, please let us know so we can take precautions.

public transport | parking
Tram line 3, Randstadrail, stops practically in front of our premises - you need to get out at "Zonnebloemstraat". If you arrive by car there are no parking fees until 17:00 hours. After 17:00 hours you will have to pay 1,70 per hour, using your bank card (no coins unfortunately).

food allergies
Our catering is not necessarily suited for children with food allergies, but we are certainly prepared to take any allergy into account and change our catering accordingly, provided you let us know in due time.
