This is a Mandurah based company, but the idea is fun and you never know what else might be available in the Eastern States. Kids Mini Digger Hire is a kid-sized digger that is easy to transport and can be safely used at fetes and community events as a fundraiser, or simply to entertain children while their parents spend money elsewhere.
In a Nutshell
The product: a kid-sized digger and large basket of plastic balls for truck-mad kids to dig
Suitable for: children aged 3+, all fetes, fairs and community markets
Costs and profit: $300 for a day hire (delivery extra).
Giving as well as taking
Fetes and fairs should not focus exclusively on making money at the expense of the community. If every stall and event has people reaching for their wallet, then good will from customers rapidly dries up. It is important to have a number of free events, rides and entertainment to allow customers to feel they are getting value for money, and allow them to relax.
Particularly in the case of school fetes, parents who feel they are constantly being nagged by their kids to pay for things, can begin to feel resentful – especially if they already donated money or goods to sell.
Free entertainment for children at fetes, therefore not only reflects good planning but a positive community mindset. Common entertainment includes petting zoos, face painting, balloon twisting and bouncy castles.
A WA Solution
Kids Mini Digger Hire is an alternative option for schools looking for something a bit different. Suitable for both boys and girls, from Kindy all the way up through primary school, the mini digger has four levers which must be manipulated in order to move the digger arm up and down and scoop balls. Not only is it fun, but it is also great for hand eye coordination and memory.
The digger comes on a customised trailer which can be attached to any tow ball, and can be collected in the morning and returned in the evening (Furnissdale, WA). The hire fee covers the full day plus indemnity insurance.
The digger runs on mains power (extension cord provided) or you can hire a generator for events being held in parks or on school/sports ovals.
It is recommended an adult or older child supervise and time the digger use and the ideal play per child is 2 to 3 minutes each, allowing up to 30 children per hour.
The digger can be used as a source of free entertainment or you could request a gold coin donation per child.
