Choosing The Best Location For Your Kid’s Birthday Party

A kid’s birthday party is a special occasion, for both the child and the parents. While the child is most excited about spending some quality time with their friends, parents are usually somewhat anxious, as they must take into consideration a large number of factors and deal with a number of tasks. Children’s birthday party locations are one of the most important factors to consider.

Now, if your child’s birthday is fast approaching, and you are still unsure as to where to host the party, let us help you by providing a number of ideas for great children’s birthday party locations, according to their age.

Toddlers & Babies

While the first birthday party will be certainly remembered forever by you, your family members, and the guests, the baby will not remember it. Therefore, try to keep it relaxed and simple. Bear in mind that even the simplest of parties may prove too much for your baby. So, make sure the timeframe is short and make a small list of guests.

Many locations for early birthday parties are pretty cheap, sometimes even free. For that matter, you can have the party at your own home, at your friend’s home, or at a local clubhouse. Now, if you are looking for an outdoor variant, a park or a backyard will do the trick.

Young Children

As your kid becomes older, your range of options will grow as well. When choosing a location, try to make a list, which will include your child’s favorite activities and personal preferences. This will play a great role in helping you decide on a location. For example, if your kid adores animals, perhaps you should host the party at your local aquarium or zoo. If it is summer time, a beach might be a better option.

You will have no problems finding a number of venues that offer fun and affordable all-inclusive parties. So, make sure to check out the community centers, movie theaters, restaurants, libraries, museums, or malls. Also, make sure to look for various family fun centers, which specialize in hosting kid’s birthday parties. These places provide all kinds of services and activities, along with a plethora of bounce houses, trampolines, ball pits, toys, and so on.

Older Children

For older children, aged between 11 – 16, any of the previously mentioned locations would serve just fine. However, keep in mind that the party guests will most likely be more demanding, therefore, try choosing something that is not overly childish. Also, be prepared to spend more money, as parties for older children are usually more expensive and can last the whole day.

Né du côté de Besançon, Slide on Venus* a rapidement écumé les scènes de France histoire de distiller sa power-pop “high-energy” pour le bonheur de nos yeux et de nos oreilles.

Ces bourreaux de travail, électriques, énergiques et déchaînés ont déjà sorti 3 Eps, ouvert pour de beaux noms et ont une centaine de concerts au compteur dont un passage à l’Olympia, à Bourges, en Angleterre et dans de nombreux festivals. En 2012, Slide on Venus* sort un premier album “Topless” autoproduit et distribué via Interscope DD et Domino Media Group.

Cette belle dizaine de titres fuselés a été reçu de manière très positive dans de nombreux médias européens : entre power-pop incandescente et indie-rock rageur Slide on Venus rappelle le meilleur de Biffy Clyro, Bloc Party et autres Foo Fighters tout en conservant une “french touch” des plus animales.

My Head Is A Jukebox

Choosing a VR headset

Virtual reality is now a reality, and for a couple of bucks, you can have your Virtual Reality headset (VR headset), to enjoy and explore the realm of virtual environments. There are so many applications that can be used with VR headsets, from delivering complex medicine classes in 3D space, to taking a virtual roller coaster ride while on your couch. However, there are various brands and makes to select from, and this here is a guide to help you get started.

Selecting the perfect VR headset

Sizegirl watching VR

The first thing that should be considered when buying VR headsets is the size. The bigger the headset,the harder it will get to use it. Bigger isn’t always better. A smaller size is better as it only occupies your eye’s area and leaves enough space over on your face. Good news is that with newer lens technologies, the sizes seem to be going down. To improve your experience, go for the smaller one.


The heavier the headset, the hard it will be for you to support it while using it. When buying a VR headset, you should consider its weight, and if it is one of a kind that uses a phone, factor in the weight of the phone. The lighter it is, the easier time you will have wearing it on your head when using it.


Padding is also very crucial as it cushions the headset’s contact with your face. After an extended period of usage, proper padding will ensure that no pressure in exerted on your face. Think of it as sitting on sofa vs. a wooden bench; which one would you want to seat on for hours.


A common effect of using a VR headset for a very long time is that moisture tends to accumulate, blurring the lenses and spoiling the whole experience. To ensure that you this doesn’t spoil your usage experience, get a VR headset that is well ventilated to allow the escape of moisture and flow of fresh air.


The bigger the viewing angle of the lenses, the better you will be able to watch using the device. Most common headsets come with a 90 degrees viewing angle, but newer lenses with 120 degrees of viewing angle have been on the rise.


A nice addition to the VR headset will be inbuilt headsets. This will make it easier for you to watch media content without having to rely on separate headphones.
