Party in Melbourne

Kids parties in Melbourne are now a huge business. This is both for the parents of the kids, the kids themselves and of course the outsoruced service providers. Gone are the days when a chilrens birthday party could be little more than a game of pass the parcel. Nowadays themed kids party entertainment is all the rage and it is rare for a given childs party not to have some sort of theme or outsourced entertainment. This is not a bad thing as if one looks at it objectively, the outsourced party entertainment provider does this sort of thing daily for a job and after a while gets to know exactly how to entertain kids. By the same token, the mums and dads expertise with entertaining at kids parties is usually limited at best.
Reptile parties are one way to entertain kids in Melbourne at any time of year. They certainly upstage other kinds of kids entertainment for their birthday parties, including such fare as magicians, jumping castles, clowns, fairy parties, laser tag skirmish, limo hire, ten pin bowling, a trip to the movies at the shopping mall, dodgem cars or a day on the beach. In terms of the latter, you certainly wouldn't want to do it in winter and when it is raining dogs and cats. Because a reptile party can be done indoors or out, it really doesn't matter what kind of weather you have on the day of the kids birthday party, so long as you have the option of doing it indoors or under cover. Reptile parties are a great way to entertain and educate children of every age or gender or ethnic background. No one doesn't lack interest when snakes and other wildlife come to the home or venue. And unlike a pony party, you wont be cleaning up horse feces off the floor at the end of the day!
The key part of the animal party is when the animal wrangler brings snakes along and allows the kids and the adults on hand to get intimate and up close with the critters. In Melbourne there are heaps of mobile wildlife displays, with new companies setting up on an almost weekly basis. These people bring all kinds of wild type animals including snakes, crocodiles and other critters for the kids. However only one outfit actually lets them hold the animals. This is Australias best reptiles, owned and operated by the globally recognized reptile man Ray Hoser.
As already mentioned, reptile shows can be done indoors or out so are effectively weather proof and can be done at any time of year or any time of day or night, meaning that a reptile show can be used as alcohol free entertainment for teens and tweens at their birthday parties as well. As a word of warning, the people that do mobile wildlife shows and educational displays with critters are always busy and so if thinking of having an animal related party event, it is wise to book first before telling all your friends.
Most wildlife shows start off as an interactive display where the children are given an educational reptile show and told the essential things about handling the animals with safety and everything else they should know. These include any handling protocols and how to be nice and gentle to the critters they may be lucky enough to get hands on with. All good wildlife shows explain the principals of conservation and why people should never be cruel to animals.
After the educational display, the kids are usually allowed to meet and greet the tame and friendly wildlife. For most mobile wildlife show displays this means a gentle pat of one or two animals if the kids are lucky. However with Australias best reptiles and their hands on reptiles show, this usually means that the animals are literally handed out to the kids and they get to handle them and learn about them in a way that only a hands-on show will deliver. In terms of teaching the kids, it is literally monkey see, monkey do, as the handler first shows them the right way to handle the animals and then the kids copy the handler. Most of the time this works smoothly and when it doesn't the handler intervenes and stops the animals being harmed, before attempting to show the kid the right way to do it a second time. As a rule this works well and evry child has a great time.
At many reptile parties in Melbourne it is often the adults at the party who get into the reptiles more than the kids and it is not unusual for the adults to spend time with the snakes and other critters long after the kids have run off to play elsewhere.
Reptile shows and incursions usually include snakes of various kind and size, baby alligators or crocodiles, large green frogs, lizards and big smelly turtles. The better shows have deadly snakes as well, but of course they are not legal to be displayed anywhere in Melbourne and the rest of Victoria unless they have been surgically devenomized in order to make them safe. This is known as venomoiding and the snakes are called venomoid.
As of 2014, the only company with these devenomized snakes is the snake mans shows and that is why his are regarded as the best in Australia.
It always gives kids in Melbourne the right to boast to their friends after they have seen kids parties which include such high profile deadly snakes such as Taipans, Browns, Blacks and Death Adders included in their party guest list.
