Birthday Packages At Home!

We can bring the zoo to you. Get up close and personal to these amazing creatures in the comfort of your home.  All our “at home” packages are fun as well as educational.  During our presentations, we’ll bring a map or globe and do a little world tour, bringing out the animals one at a time.  We’ll explain all the neat things about each animal in a fun and relaxed manner, and of course the children will be able to touch and/or hold just about every animal we bring safely under the supervision of your presenter.

All packages are one hour in length and can be done in either English or French.
We don’t take up a lot of room, so as long as there is enough room for your guests, we can set up anywhere in your home.  Presentations can be done outside May to September weather depending (must be at least 15 degrees and sunny).

There are no restrictions on the number of children or adults attending your party. PLEASE NOTE – Only package 2 is available outside of the greater Ottawa area.
