Booking with us is Child's Play
Are you hosting a party and not sure if there is an entertainment package suitable for your event? Take control of your party and choose a selection from our pick 'n' mix games and toy hire options in Reading. At Kids Rule, we understand that not everybody is happy with the same package options, which is why we are proud to offer you the opportunity to hire as little or as many of our toys and games as you’d like.
Our team have conducted lots of research and are now happy to announce the arrival of some brand new products, including children’s party games, activities and toys. This means you can put together your own pick ‘n’ mix of old favourites and modern games to create the perfect children’s party package.
We have a £50 minimum order for all our products. If you hire over £100 worth of pick ‘n’ mix items, we will happily give you a £10 discount. This can be used in conjunction with multiple discounts listed on this page. The majority of pick ‘n’ mix items detailed below can be used outdoors, depending on the weather and time of year. All items must always be supervised by a responsible adult over the age of 18.
The Whizzy Dizzy is a balancing teacup, which will provide hours of fun for the little ones at your party. Children sit on the base of the Whizzy Dizzy and rotate it by holding on to the wheel and using their body weight to spin around!
These stepping stones are inspired by stepping stones in a river, with each side of the triangle varying in steepness and difficulty. The purpose is to jump from stone to stone without touching the floor. You can vary the position of the stones to create more challenging paths for children of different ages or abilities. Each stone has rubber studs on the base which prevent them from slipping while also protecting indoor floor areas. The game builds children's confidence when jumping, judging distances, co-ordinating, and balancing.
Build to your hearts’ content with our Giant Flexible Lego! These large, interlocking building blocks fit together to create structures big enough for toddlers to play in and walkthrough.

Please note: If any Lego pieces are missing at the end of the hire period, there will be a £5 charge per piece. If the customer would like to double check that there are 80 pieces at the beginning of the hire period, then please ask a member of Kids Rule staff to check this with them upon delivery.

Our new giant soft play noughts and crosses game is another age old game, which will bring back great memories from anyone’s childhood. Play the classic way with the noughts and crosses or reverse the pieces for younger children and play the fun jungle animals instead. A great addition to any party!
How steady are your nerves? Test your skill against family and friends with our Beat the Buzzer game. The aim is to thread the hoop through the bendy wire from one end to the other without setting off the buzzer. You can play this game with different rules, such as a time limit, or even allow a maximum of 3 times setting off the buzzer for younger participants. There is also a "light only" option if the noise of the buzzer gets a bit much. A great addition to any other hired equipment.

We have a minimum hire rate of £50 which does not include delivery fees, where applicable. Orders under £100 can only be delivered and collected (although collection may be more flexible at weekends from time to time depending on our schedule) during midweek, Monday to Friday. Alternatively, they can be collected and returned to us in Tilehurst, Reading during any day of the week on prior arrangement with Kids Rule.
Play mats may vary from the images shown. The equipment with each soft play package may also vary slightly from time to time due to upgrade or replacement but this will always be an improvement on our part, not the other way around.
Please note that prices quoted are for up to 5 hours’ equipment hire until no later than 7:00 p.m. in the summer months or 6:00 p.m. in the winter months (October to March inclusive). If extended hours are necessary, reasonable hourly charges can be added. Free delivery applies to the following areas; Calcot, Holybrook, Horncastle, Little Heath, Norcot, Purley, Southcote, and Tilehurst. All other areas will incur a delivery charge. For more information, please see our delivery fees.
Depending on which equipment you hire, we will require up to 1 hour for set up, and we will give you an approximate time of arrival. Although we always endeavour to arrive promptly, on very rare occasions, due to circumstances beyond our control, we cannot 100% guarantee that we will always arrive at the exact time requested.
We request that the Hirer ensures that all balls are kept in the ball pond throughout the hire period. A £10 refundable holding deposit is required per hire for a ball pond but with prior agreement, Kids Rule will hand the bag for the balls to the Hirer for them to pack the balls away at the end of the party with no deposit necessary.
Please inform us if access to the main area of the function space is not easily accessible, i.e. are there any stairs at all? Is there a lift available? If the function area is not on the ground floor, is there a long corridor or pathway longer than approximately 10 metres? Or do we have to carry equipment through a house to a rear garden? Some of these situations may require an additional charge and extra delivery time, so please confirm this at the time of booking for us to be properly prepared. If this is not confirmed, the driver is permitted to use his/her discretion if he/she feels an extra charge is payable on the day.
Lastly, areas in which equipment is to be set up must be clear before our arrival. Thank you for your co-operation!
