Frequently asked questions

How long can I hire a Mascot for?

Private hire of Mascots is for a maximum of 48 hours to allow you to familiarise yourself with the various elements before your event and also to ensure you're not rushing to return it afterwards. If additional hire time is required, this can be arranged at an additional cost. We do advise that the maximum length a Mascot is worn does not exceed 30 mins, as further time could potentially cause overheating and greater dry cleaning requirements than a standard hire. If a greater level of cleaning is required, this could result in part or all of your deposit not being refunded.

How long is a Mascot visit for?

A single mascot appearance at your event is limited to 30 minutes to ensure the health and safety of our staff. This is due to the high temperature conditions that can be reached within the costumes.

What does a Mascot visit include?

Manned Mascots at your event can participate in a number of activities including; - Photo opportunities with guests - Dancing with guests - Some party games - Certain Mascots can also bring out a birthday/celebration cake

Why do I have to pay a deposit?

We ask for an initial £10 deposit at the time of booking to secure all bookings as we do not want to disappoint other individuals who may wish to hire elements but cannot do so if a provisional booking has been made and then cancelled last minute.
We also place a security deposit on our Mascots and party elements when privately hired to ensure protection of our assets.
