Kids + Toddler Birthday Venues In Los Angeles (Santa Monica)

February 6th, 2007

Our twins celebrate December birthdays so every year we consider a party in our yard or park or house. Then due to weather and our own sanity, decide we need an outside venue. Oh, and we’ve attended a couple partys here and there. So we decided to offer a list of some of our favorite birthday locations for kids and toddlers. I’m sure we’ve missed a few so please, send us your favorites.

This list has a Los Angeles + Westside focus. But if you have some great suggestions, we’re compiling other lists, so please don’t hold back!

    Bowling parties at the Santa Monica bowling alley: they put up something to keep the balls out of the gutter. They have a party room. They have nice high school kids to help run your party. Parents can get cocktails from the bar. Definitely a good time will be had by all.

    We attended a B-Day at SM Bowl on Pico. It was great! They rent out the rooms upstairs which aren’t the most beautiful in the world, — they look like rooms above a Bowling Ally. They provide all the food (and prohibit you from bringing anything but the cake). I’d recomend that, If you plan a party there, bring some extra activites! The kids went wild running around the party room with nothing to do.

    This is more for kids 6 yrs +, but Ultrazone laser tag birthday parties in Sherman Oaks are great. We’ve been holding our kids’ birthday parties there every year for some time now, and they always do a great job. They take care of everything, and the staff is very good with the kids. Plus, it’s laser tag, so you know the kids will have fun. (I’ve been known to play a game or two myself!)

    iFly Hollywood is just about to open at Universal CityWalk. This is a vertical wind tunnel that allows you to fly! My sisters daughter had a birthday party at the one in Colorado. She turned 6. I couldn’t believe how much fun they all had! It was so much fun to see them fly and to watch them watch each other fly. My niece had a permanent grin from ear to ear for about a month!! http://www.iflyhollywood.com

    Rent a train car for your party and let the kids explore the other retired train cars in the train museum at Griffith Park. There is also a miniature train ride for everyone to ride. Great party place.

    La Petite Party in Thousand Oaks is a wonderful kids’ party destination that is worth the drive out of the Westside. If you really want to spoil your child and their friends, have the business owner arrange a limo to pick you up at your door and extend the party to include the limo ride to and from. Check out their website:

    One of the best places to have a party for small children or just for a day out with the kids is Adventure City located down the street from Knotts Berry Farm. This small amusement park is designed for small children. My son was two when we went and he got on every ride. They have a train ride, petting zoo, roller coasters and puppet show. It is VERY AFFORDABLE with free parking. Great for a party and the birthday kid is the captain of the train. If you havent been here, please try it, your kids will thank you, they will be happy and very sleepy on the way home.

    I suggest renting Luke Campbell to do karaoke for your kid’s parties. I used him for my child’s party and he was beyond what I could have imagined. He got the kid’s involved right away, even though they were all shy. He sang with them to get it going. It cost me 300 for 3 hours, but it was way worth it. His company is called Get On Up Karaoke. Just search it in Google and you’ll find the link.

They clean up after your party and the staff has been amazingly cooperative and nice with us. Fun, fun, experience for the kids.

For example, they love getting their hands into the pizza dough. Beverages, paper goods, goody bags and decorations are provided. Parents are free to take pictures or socialize.

    Discover the artistry and spectacle of a magic show designed to stimulate the intellect, stir the imagination and lift the spirit.

    Magicopolis in Santa Monica hosts the best Birthday Parties. They make it so easy for us. Birthday Parties include everything, all of the decorations, paper goods , party favors, pizza, cake and juice for the kids not to mention the incredible entertainment for both kids and adults. The kids enjoy a magic class and a 90 minute show. My son was called up on stage to participate in one of the tricks. It was an unforgettable experience for everyone! I think the adults had as much fun as our kids.

    Scribble Press on Montana is also great for birthday parties. Younger kids have art parties, and make placemats, and older kids can write and illustrate a group book that they all take home a copy of. There are some photos of classes and parties there on their blog scribblepress.wordpress.com. the party leaders are really fun, and at the end they have something of value to take home!

    I just recently had my son Dillon’s fourth birthday party at Well Baby Center in Mar Vista. After several months of looking around and trying to find the right venue, I am confident that I made the correct decision with Well Baby Center. Not only did they offer the most reasonable prices but they also made the party feel so private like we were at home! If you are on a budget and want to throw your child the perfect party I suggest you check out Well Baby Center. They offer a spacious outside play yard area equipped with a climbing structure with slide and play tower, a wooden play house, ball pool and balance beam, and there is a canopy sail covering most of the yard for shady comfort.

    Diva Girlz & Adventure Boyz is located in Tarzana but also hosts mobile parties anywhere in Los Angeles County. Their signature party is the Diva Glam & Jam party, with dress-up, makeovers, a fashion show and photo shoot, dancing, and games.

    The Rock Star party is great for girls or boys and includes funky dress-up, crazy rock star hair styles, games, and lots of karaoke.

    The Princess Tea Party is hosted by real princess party hosts. Girls get to dress up, receive princess makeovers, participate in a Princess Coronation Ceremony, and have a tea party with tiaras and pink lemonade.

    The Ooh La La Spa Party is a good one for tweens and teens. Girls get pampered with pedicures, manicures,and Diva Girlz facials while relaxing in fluffy pink robes. Each girl makes a spa craft to take home, like salt scrub or shimmer lotion.

    The Pirate Adventure Party is a popular one with the preschool crowd. Kids dress up in pirate attire, get face painting, make crafts, hunt for treasure, and play pirate games.

    Other party themes include: Knights of the Round Table, Superhero Adventure, Race Car Party, Disco Dance Party, Pink Poodle Party, American Idol Karaoke Party…

    The most popular party theme of the moment: Justin Bieber! If you have a party in mind that they don’t already do, Diva Girlz & Adventure Boyz can create a party to meet your child’s interests. “If you can dream it, we can theme it!”
