    Our Party Animals made their debut for the Rainforest Action Network at the Starline Social Club where they made the crowd go WILD. These animals tower above your guests (on four-legged stilts), they can be “tamed” and elegant, or ridiculously and playfully interactive. You’d be surprised at what a zebra could get away with at a party!

    These signature characters were also the (wild)life of the party at the San Francisco and Oakland Zoo! We can incorporate your custom theme or request through our realistic or fantastical body paint animals! Below a corporate party at SF City Hall we body painted these characters for great photo opps for the guests and the dancers for their Broadway inspired show.

    -This Summer our Tiger and Zebra strolled around bringing wonder to Jack’s Night Market in Oakland for all 3 of it’s dates. Blogger Sally mentioned on her blog Little Hiccups,”Kids will love the carnival entertainers that stroll around the markets. The stilt walking zebra and tiger were a huge hit with all the kids…”

    GOOD CAUSE- The Party Animals are part of our giving back initiatives…so every party animal booking results in a donation to the World Wildlife Fund (WWF) and the Mercy For Animals.

    Practical Considerations: Stilt Party Animals require a designated ground supporter, which can provided by Catalyst Arts for a small fee or assigned from your staff or volunteers. For large crowded events or events with copious amounts of alcohol, we include a “zookeeper” to protect the animals and also serve as a photographer.

    Pricing:  Bookings for ground animals start at $350; stilt animals start at $500. Please see our price sheet for more information.
