Perth’s newest and most unusual party idea
My nephew – also known as the Truck Man Toddler – loves trucks. And diggers and bobcats and all sorts of machinery. For his birthday last year, my sister considered asking the guys from the building site down the road if they would bring some diggers up just so he could look at them.

Kids Mini Digger Hire
Make your Truck Man's day with a digger party

If you have a Truck Man, you will understand her pain. But I am going to share with you a brand new company, located in the surrounds of Mandurah: a Kids Mini Digger that you can hire for birthday parties and fetes.

This anatomically correct digger is kid-sized and comes with a large metal basket of bright plastic balls that kids can dig, and dig, and dig (if you're curious though, adults can also fit on it).

If your child is fascinated by machinery, it would be the perfect way to entertain them at their next birthday, and it's unlikely any of the kids would have ever seen anything like it.

And while kids won't care, parents might appreciate the fact that the digger improves hand-eye coordination, lateral thinking and even memory. There are four different levers which control the digger as well as a handle to turn it from side to side.

Girls love digging too

And it's not just for boys – my three daughters happily spent ages on the Mini Digger, learning the levers and digging away at the balls.

It is safe and simple to operate and runs on mains power, although if your party is in a park you can also request a generator which will keep the digger powered up and ready to go.

The digger is on a little trailer for easy transport

The Mini Digger can be hired for $150 for a day, and comes on a custom trailer that is ready to be hooked up to your tow-ball (pick up in the morning and return in the evening). If you don't have a tow-ball, you can contact the owners for delivery costs (starting at $150 for delivery within 30km).

The Mini Digger would also be a great attraction at a school or community fete – either as a free amusement for kids, or you could ask for donations (ie $2 for 2 minutes digging).
