Hosted by our expert Storytellers, children are treated to a magical tour through our forest where they can meet the whimsical creatures in our trees, play interactive games, hear the tale of The Lost Forests, and also have an audience with Mr Woodleigh, our all-knowing talking tree in the forest who will know your child by name!
Our Lost Forest parties last approximately 90 minutes. This includes a short briefing outside the store where children receive ID bracelets, a 30 minute tour through the forest, and an hour of fully catered party food, refreshment, and entertainment in one of our two private Lost Forest party rooms. The party finishes with your lucky birthday child catching their very own Puggle toy at the bottom of our famous Puggle Slide!
These days, The Lost Forests experience continues to be owned and operated by the McDonnell family. Our original stores still evoke fond memories for all who visited them in their youth, and our team looks forward to planting more Lost Forests throughout the world in the coming years. The Lost Forest values Peace, Understanding, Gentleness, Generosity, Love, and Energy … just like every PUGGLE does!
“A birthday party at The Lost Forests was like having a party in an entirely different world; one full of magic and possibility! I’ll never forget hearing tales of incredible creatures at my party, and waiting expectantly at the bottom of the Puggle slide to receive my very own Puggle”Ellen Oakley
“Having a birthday at The Lost Forest in the 90’s was a dream come true. To this day I still remember talking to the trees and getting my very own Puggle. The magic of The Lost Forest has stayed with me for life”Bianca Lewis
