ClapHandies Events:

With over 10 years experience we have a unique understanding of what makes babies and young children tick and what makes parents smile. We customise our offering for each event.
Our two most popular event structures are:

ClapHandies Baby & Toddler Chill Zones - Ideal for shopping centres, corporate family days, retail and hospitality events. ClapHandies chill zones provide dedicated play areas with baby play equipment and activities for parents and young children with themes such as "I can cook" or "I can do the shopping". Our PlayLab Leaders create a warm and friendly vibe keeping the children happy and busy while also allowing parents to enjoy watching their little ones getting to play in a safe and chilled out environment.

ClapHandies PlayLabs - We have adapted our weekly pre-school programme to work for a variety of groups like family sessions in libraries or in retail outlets, pre-schools, creches etc. The PlayLabs are structured play sessions where we have active entertainment and parent participation for the very young with story, dance and rhyme time. These PlayLab sessions can stand alone as the main attraction or can be shortened and run as mini PlayLabs on rotation throughout the day in your event or as a weekly / regular class for creches and private groups. For example, we run monthly PlayLabs in IKEA and private weekly PlayLabs in creches and early intervention groups.


REALPARTIESx is the big brother of ClapHandies. Leave the sweetness and gentleness to the ClapHandies little ones - we're all about fun and mischief for pre- and primary school age children. Our events are ideal for retail centres, corporate family days, and hospitality event. We have a strong understanding of what works for this age range and customise our activities of rate different age groups. We can facilitate a mix of ages at the same event or focus on a specific age.

REALPARTIESx Science Events - Our REAL SCIENCE events are fun-filled workshops for all the family with hands on Science experiments, slime and explosions. Our events are lead by our enthusiastic and fun Events Crew. Our Science events are a mixture of educational Science and engineering demonstrations with lots of hands on fun which encourage children and parents alike to get involved. Lab coats and protection glasses will be the dress code for the young scientists as they get to watch and join in with age-appropriate experiments.

REALPARTIESx Maker Events - Our REAL MAKER events are adapted to the age of the group. We can also tailor our craft activities so that they are customised to the theme of the event or the event sponsor. We have themes suitable for very young pre-schoolers and more complex activities that are sure to keep older school children engaged.

REALPARTIESx Disco Events - Our REAL DISCO events are aimed to really get those hips swinging and those toes tapping. Our cool tunes and "action songs" will lift the roof and are specially picked to get even the shyest of kids moving. Put on your head boppers and funky shades and get on down to some Karaoke and some seriously impressive dance routines.

REALPARTIESx Brick Events - Our REAL BRICK events are again tailored to the age and abilities of the group. Our activities range from fun simple building challenges to designing crazy Lego contraptions and even building robotic Lego machines.
