If you’ve ever gathered a gaggle of little ones together for a kids’ party, you’ll know how daunting it can feel to keep them constantly entertained! Happily, Hong Kong has a great selection of kids’ party entertainers and activities to call on to take the stress out of hosting. From clowns to crafting, here are some choices to help make your child’s next party enjoyable for the guests and you!
Rumple and Friends
Rumple and Friends was established in 2012 by Matt Coombes to provide high-quality, professional entertainment to children across Hong Kong for birthday parties, private events and corporate family fun days. Since then, it has grown from one performer and a suitcase travelling Hong Kong, to having its own studio, full-time staff, and an army of freelancers who provide entertainment such as magic shows, face-painting and balloon-twisting. According to Matt, the Rumple and Friends mission is to bring happiness, joy and magic to the children of Hong Kong through birthday parties, school shows, discos, and bespoke projects or events.
“Booking a party couldn’t be simpler,” he says. “Just visit our website to see our 13 unique characters, choose a character to perform a fun magic show and play themed games, and send us a message with the date, time and location of your party. We can sort out everything from party entertainers to face painters, balloon twisters, and even venues and decorations from our incredible partner companies if needed. We get booked up as far as four-to-six weeks in advance so get in touch early to avoid disappointment.”

Want to host a disco party? Island Dance can provide a dance instructor for hour-long packages who will travel to the party venue and then teach your party guests some choreography to your child’s favourite song. The instructor will then lead a performance, as well as some games, to ensure a rocking good time is had by all.

The packages include e-invitations, an art or craft activity, face-painting and a glitter tattoo. Basic decorations, time for cake and photo-taking, as well as a goody bag for guests is also included. Keep an eye out for the value-add options at its venues, too.
Here’s something different: an exotic animals party! For your little one’s next bash, enlist the help of Jurassic Garage, which offers experiences such as a cute and fluffy animals party, a creepy crawly party and even a petting zoo. They can adapt the party to suit the age and gender of guests, as well as the size of the venue.
Science Explorer party entertainers start with a 30-minute interactive science show that teaches kids about basic science concepts and keywords in a fun and engaging way. It’s then followed by a lab session of about 45 minutes to one hour, which gives kids an opportunity to get hands-on with a project of their own.
Whisked Baking Studio
Whisked Baking Studio offers kids’ party packages for children as young as three. The two-hour sessions are held at the company’s Sheung Wan baking studio. Packages include a hands-on baking activity, a take-home present for the birthday child, all cooking supplies, ingredients and a box to take home. You’ll also get basic party food such as water, juice, popcorn and chips, and disposable cups, plates and utensils as part of the deal.
A good option if you are looking for party entertainers for active kids, Minisport offers beach, multisport or World Cup packages. Packages run for up to 75 minutes of sporting activities for up to 30 kids. The sessions are run by two coaches, and include party certificates and assistance with the venue.
