Archie Brothers Invitations
When having a party at Archie Brothers, each child receives a games pass on an Archie Brothers Lanyard. Given I knew this was the case we made a special trip there to receive our Lanyards early so we can give them out as invitations.
Everybody loves a pre-made invite! Archie Brothers have templates ready to go in two vibrant designs. I simply adjusted the size, added the detail and printed them back to back. One side with the image and the other with the details. Once printed, I cut them out and laminated them. I knew I had the lanyards so adding a hole in the top allowed me to attach them. Invites done!

The Party Packages
Kids birthday packages start at $36 per child. All packages come with 1 hour Circus Access, Private Party Room, Party Food, Gift for the children and a Ringmaster (I don’t think we give enough credit to the party host). The difference between the ‘Lion Gamer’ $36 package and ‘The Big Top’ $44 party package is an additional game of bowling. ‘The Lion Gamer’ package suited us fine! Visit Archie Brother Party Packages here.
All party packages include one hour of Circus Access. What does that mean? Well, this is the best part! Kids can choose from Arcade Games, Virtual Reality, Thrillrider and Dodgem Cars.
The Party Room!
Bright, roomy and away from the crazy noise – Just perfect. I really do love Archie Brothers for kids parties in Melbourne.
What I love!
As soon as we arrived we were treated to a red carpet entrance. The kids were so excited and I knew this venue was going to be something special. The decor is fun, vibrant, and full of circus memorabilia.
The arcade games included all of the favourites. I really enjoyed seeing the children jump in-between their chosen games, but I must say the dodgem cars were super cool. The smiles on their faces when another teammate crashes into them was priceless. Virtual reality warning – Be prepared to scream! I loved this game and embarrassingly the children couldn’t stop laughing at the my reaction.
On a practical note, the toilets were clean, the staff were patient and wonderful with the children and there is a super cool zone for parents to chill and have a drink. I think this is my new favourite place for kids parties. A must see!
Gumball Party Favours!
Circus Themed Party Favours
Amazing Pinterest came through again with this idea with DIY Gumball Machines. Who would have thought putting a paper cup upside down and then hot gluing some clear plastic Christmas balls would be so effective and super cute. For those of you who are having trouble sourcing the Christmas Balls out of season – I found them at Lincraft. I filled them with Jaffas and one snake in each. It was hilarious to see the children try and get the snake out of the containers!
