Birthdays are a big deal for little kids. They countdown the days and can’t wait to celebrate. Make it a day they’ll never forget and plan an awesome party at home or on the town.


Have it at home

Don’t worry about leaving the house, the party can come to you!

  • Add another name to the guest list – from princess to super hero, Star Wars and Super Mario, Laurel’s Princess Parties can make your littles dreams come true
  • Most days your house feels like a zoo so why not make it official with the Exotic Zoo with cute and cuddly animals to slithering creatures with scales, the Exotic Zoo brings it to you!
  • No need to worry about kids bouncing around the house, instead they can jump in a bounce house and play with lawn games from Five Little Monkeys they have vintage arcade games too!
  • Celebrate with heroes. Due to COVID-19 many local police and fire stations have been willing to drive by families homes to recognize kids on their birthdays.


Plan An Animal Party

Try Something New

It’s not easy watching our kids grow up but with each year comes new experiences and here are some for the big day.

  • For the athlete who can’t wait to drive, WhirlyBall is the place to party.  A combination of basketball, hockey and Jai-Alai played while riding a bumper car.
  • Let them live out their ninja dreams with obstacle courses, rock climbing, parkour and more atGanbaru Detroit or S.W.A.G Kids Gym in West Bloomfield.
  • We’ve all at least been to a bowling party as a kid, now your kids can have a fowling (football/bowling) party at the Fowling Warehouse.
  • Take the birthday celebration to new heights at TreeRunner Adventure Park. Kids can learn to climb the trees and tackle obstacles from a whole new angle.
