Fun Farm Parties

 

Zippity Zoo is available to bring the fun of the farm to you in the Wellington, Hutt Valley, Kapiti Coast, Horowhenua, Palmerston North and Whanganui area. 

altWe have a number of party options so your child can have fun with our friendly farm animals, whatever the weather! Animal parties are a great way to celebrate your child's birthday and Zippity Zoo is happy to bring all the fun of the farm to you. We travel in a truck that has specially designed cages that meet animal welfare regulations. The animals arrive happy ready to enoy themselves with you and take part in creating some magic birthday memories. We travel in the Wellington, Hutt, Kapiti, Horowhenua, Palmerston North and Whanganui.

 Children will love touching, holding and feeding the animals. The core animals are the little furry friends plus goat and sheep. Additional animals occur dependant on season and what is happening at the farm.

We do have a pony and a miniature donkey. One or the other often come out, cuddles and grooming are great!

What type of party should I have?

We cannot bring farm parties to houses with steps as Horse/ donkey and sheep do not cooe with steps.

Due to presence of large animals I need more space with a farm party. For example a goat on a tether put in ground takes up approx 2 meters.

Grassy areas are always preferred. I cannot place animals anywhere near rhododendrons, azaleas, rhubarb, yew, tuxus box hedging, or Kowhai due to their significant toxicity to animals so please consider this when looking at area available.

If it rains we need to be able to go inside a garage or even your lounge with smaller furry friends.

Does your child have a favourite animal? I will do my best to have that animal present...but I do not bring out pigs!

Age of child makes little difference, they are all individuals. I take large animals to preschool and kindergartens so very familiar with interactions with young ones and animals.

 

How do I book?

Fill in the Contact Me page or text 0272182820

We cannot bring farm parties to houses with steps as Horse/ donkey and sheep do not cope with steps.

 

We require a booking deposit fee of $50 (non-refundable) to confirm the party. Balance of the remaining full total is to be paid at the beginning of the visit. The deposit is non-refundable.

 

What I need for animals in garden?

We need an area of approximately 2 car park spaces to park our truck and a grassy garden preferably with a fenced off area. We use pens and also tether the animals so they remain safe, and so does your garden!

 

What if it rains?

Zippity Zoo thinks your child’s birthday is a very, very important day and do not cancel. Instead we discuss options. For example, if you have a garage we can use this by putting our tarpauline on the ground, or we can cut the party down to a Furry Friends, or Furry Friends PLUS party and bring the smaller animals inside using snuggle bags and cozy fleece blankets plus the pens so rabbits do not run amok in you house/garage. Price of party will also be altered to recognise the change.

Furry Friends party

partysnap2

Let Zippity Zoo bring our small furry friends, the rabbits and guinea pigs in their special snuggle bags and our super cuddly little chooks to your childs’ party. We have found that children love to snuggle up and feed our smaller animals. This is not weather dependant activity. This party can be held indoors or outside. When I have the baby lambs or kid goats with me I am unable to do Furry Friends as the baby animals must be with me for feeds, parties become Spring Parties.

Both Furry Friends and Furry Friends PLUS are great rainy day options to cut down to when a farm party has been booked but weather is not so great for outdoor activity.

"I just wanted to say thank you for today, Jemima and her friends had a wonderful time. Jemima loved the animals, she has talked about her party heaps. She is quite a shy girl so I was so happy to look out the window and see her in the pen with a chicken on her lap! We got lots of comments about how well run it was, and what a nice 'calm' party activity it was! I'm sure it will be something she remembers for years to come.
Thanks again,
Rebecca and Jeremy (and Jemima)."


 

Furry Friends PLUS

Id like a carrot too

We can combine Furry friends with one of our larger animals such as the pony, greedy goat or donkey. This is also a great rainy day option to cut down to when a farm party has been booked but weather is not so great for outdoor activity.

 

Spring Baby party (seasonal Aug/ Sept)

Lotsa Lambs

Enjoy our cuddly smaller Furry Friends with the addition of the spring babies.

 

We hope this was enough information for you. Please do not hesitate to contact us if you have any further enquiries
