FAQs

Here are a few of our most frequently asked questions, if you can’t find what your looking for then please feel free to contact us.

Parties

Oglee Poglee can accommodate up to 30 children at a party and will bring extra team members if needed.  For larger parties a big venue is ideal so the children have room to move around.  Less than 20 children is ideal and we recommend less than 15 for a party at home.

Oglee Poglee is based in Berkhamsted and can travel for parties within Hertfordshire and Buckinghamshire.

Whether you host a party in your home, garden or hired venue we can work with the space you give us.  For some top tips on finding the right party venue see our blog post here.

The one thing that is essential is parking.  We come with a lot of stuff and so parking at the venue is crucial.

Firstly do check our availability for the party date you require.  you can do this by filling in the enquiry form on our parties page.  Alternatively you can email or phone us.    If we are available and you are happy we will email you a link to our parties booking form.  Once you return the form and make the first party payment of £50 your party is booked into the Oglee Poglee diary.

Absolutely, boys and girls love our parties.  We get to know our party clients really well on the lead up to the party and make sure the party activities fit the children attending.

Arts and craft activities with kids can get messy but don’t worry as it’s our job to do all the tidying up.  At our workshops and parties there will be a cleaning up area for hand washing and aprons are always provided to protect clothing.  Also all our paint is washable so any mess is easily washed away.  We also protect floors and table with cloths.

If you are looking to book a party and mess is not your thing then just let us know, we can plan so mess free activities instead.

We do use food in some of our messy play activities so do let us know of any allergies before a party or workshop and we can alter the activities accordingly.  All our paint is nut and wheat free.

A bespoke party is when we design the whole party just for you.  It’s ideal for a child who has a very specific idea of what party theme they would like or perhaps they want something completely unique.

For example one bespoke party was designed for a little boy who loved polar bears.  Another for a little girl who just loved glitter.   We do charge a little extra for bespoke parties depending on the complexity of the theme.

Party Bags

We hand make all our party bags to order and do not carry stock.  Knowing when your party is allows us to plan our making schedule and ensure that we deliver the order on time.  Your party bags will not be sent out immediately instead we make sure they are delivered nearer to your party date unless you tell us otherwise.

We hand make all our craft party bags to order.  At busy times this can take a few days so we ask that you order at least 5 days before your party.   If it’s urgent then please do call us and ask.  If we can rush your order through we will and we can offer next day delivery at an extra cost.

We have two party bags styles that can be personalised with a special message.  Our dressing up kits and our larger personalised boxes.

Our best selling party bags can not be personalised at this time.

All our party bags offer “open ended” play, this means there is no defined outcome or instructions on how to use them.  Therefore children are free to create what they like.  It may be a picture, puppets, a handbag, gift cards, ………..  the only limit is the child’s imagination.
