Pop-up parties

Stuck trying to think of a fun birthday party plan for your tot?

Then check out Tyke Invite, a new pop-up play service founded by Minnesota mom Angel Carroll. 

Based in Eagan, Tyke Invite rents soft-play equipment geared toward infants, toddlers and preschoolers up to age 5. 

We’re talking tike-sized play modules, foam flooring, rocking horses and ball pools (which can be customized to specific color palettes) — all set up for you, outside or indoors.  

Rental fees — $250–$500, plus delivery fees of $20–$50 — include three hours of playtime and timely setup and breakdown of play structures, which are sanitized between events with non-toxic products.
