Lil Critters cater for?
As many as you like! If you are
expecting more than 25 children we recommend that you get 2
actors as it will ensure a smoother sailing of the day. It will
ensure that each child has more time with the characters and is
ultimately more satisfied. Our actors are incredibly skilled at
‘children management’ and are more than adept with dealing with
large groups of children. It is important that you let Lil
Critters know exactly how many children you are expecting so we
can cater the show, prizes and games to suit.
Can I have one
character for the girls and one for the boys but have it as one
Of course you can! Our skilled
actors will cater their show to share the entertainment between
the two of them, making sure that both the girls and the boys
are kept happy. For example Snow White and Batman are a perfect
duo to host a party. So too may be Cinderella and Spiderman,
Wolly the Wizard and Fairy etc etc. If you have a particular
theme you would like to stick to we suggest going with two
‘like’ characters such as Colin and Calamity Cowboy/girl or
Wendy the Wacky Witch and Wolly the Wizard.
Do I need to
pay a deposit?
Yes, to confirm your booking
you will need to pay a non refundable deposit of $50. We are
often booked up months in advance so this payment guarantees
How do I pay?
The full amount may be paid
prior to the event by cheque, direct bank deposit, internet bank
transfer, paypal, or money order.
Otherwise, with cash at the end of the event in person. We
insist that the money is concealed by placing in an envelope
before being handed over to the entertainer. It really can ruin
the magic if your child sees Spiderman receiving cash!
Can I have a
character come more than once?
Absolutely, just make sure you
let the staff at Lil Critters know so we don’t double up. If
your child has had us one year the show they see the next time
will be different.
What is the
Preferably somewhere where the
children can gather and watch the show uninterrupted, without
too much external noise and activities taking place. If there is
an inflatable jumping castle for example we suggest it be
deflated or that the entertainer comes before the castle is
inflated. Of course, we understand that childrens birthday
parties can be raucous, busy and with a lot going on, but
children may be too distracted if there is too much happening at
once. So, to get your value for money and to ensure that your
child has the best possible experience we suggest that when the
character arrives that there is little other noise happening
around then. And, don’t worry we will make plenty of noise!
“My son and his
friend had a ball at his police party on Sunday, and the
‘policeman’ was very funny and did a great job with the
Can I have the
Weather permitting-Yes. Ideally
we need a power point nearby for our actors to plug in their
portable stereo device. If there is no power please let us know
so we can have our actors ready with batteries.
What age group
do you cater for?
From 2 to 9 years. The ideal
ages however are 4 to 7 years. Make sure you let us know how old
most of the kids will be as our show is catered especially for
the required age group.

The show in concluded with basic face painting. With limited time within the 1hour show it is
reminded that the face painting is a very basic motif (stars,
hearts, spiders, lightning bolts etc). Should you opt for the
1.5 hour show you can expect more elaborate designs and if time
permits, an additional game-‘The Limbo’. Keep in mind that
larger numbers mean the face painting will take longer.
