Costumes – not just for grown ups!

Costumes and fancy dress have become such a big thing for parties these  days as we all indulge our alter egos!

We all love dressing up and none more so than kids.

Mine loved anything sparkly and shiny! The range of costumes for hire for kids these days is truly astonishing and would have saved me hours of sewing what they quickly grew out of!

You can get costumes for babies and toddlers  – 6months upwards which are cute, cuddly and gorgeous.

5-9 year old costumes are the required  fairy, pixie, mermaid, superhero,  pirates,  knights and princess.

The 10yrs+ costumes get a little more sophisticated ( but not TOO  grown up)  as they head to their teenage years, while still being lots of fun.

Costumes really are great for  reflecting the of fun and fantasy of being a kid.

Bored with housework? Had a bad week? Want to add a bit of sparkle to your day or to cheer up a friend? You need to hire a hunk!


Hunks for hire are a fabulous bit of eye candy for those desperate housewives, single girls, widowers or office ladies who want to spice things up around the office, home or garden.

Get the girls together for a glass of wine and enjoy a good old perve and lots of laughs.

As well as looking gorgeous you can hire a Gardening Hunk to cut your hedges, do some weeding, or mow your lawns; a Pool Hunk to clean your pool; a Domestic Hunk to Vacuum, clean windows, car or decking; a Handy Hunk repair the fence, change a tyre or odd jobs around the house and a Chauffer Hunk to drive your girls around town on a pub crawl, keep them in out of trouble and home safely.

Keeping the kids happy

Keeping the kids happy – always challenging but always worth it!princess coupe

Happy kids = happy parents.

Kids grow fast and they grow out of things just as fast. You can spend a lot of money on clothes, toys, baby equipment for each stage of your child’s development. So much to do, so much to learn and so many cool things!

This year alone my son has already been through fads of Ben 10, Bakugon and is now fixated on Star Wars.

Unless you are made of money and have a warehouse to store everything, what are your options? Choose a selection of things you hope they like? Buy them and sell them for a fraction of their value in a few months when they have out grown them?

This is where hiring makes the most sense.You can hire your kids a selection of toys for a week/month, they get to enjoy something fun and interesting and you can swap it when they start to get bored! Perfect.

fooseballIt makes  much more sense to hire a selection of toys for  a short time while they are still “new”and exciting, then hire something different next month. Toy hire is an easy way to get top quality, well known brands, that are totally safe for kids and match their current level of development.

Toy hire works especially well for those larger items such as toy kitchens, ride-on-cars, indoor climbing frames etc and are great as part of a party pack for birthday parties or when your entertaining and would like the kids occupied…

So next time your thinking of buying toys for your children, take a moment to consider how long they are going to play with it, where are you going to store it and do they really need to have one or would they just enjoying playing on/with one for a while?

As well as saving you money I think this sends great  messages to our kids regarding the reusing of resources, that you don’t always have to own to enjoy.
