Virtual Birthday Parties

Let PopUpPlay create an unforgettable virtual party for your child's big day.  We're partnering with Philadelphia's coolest organizations to bring custom parties right to your living room. PopUpPlay will facilitate an amazing online party complete with time for children to play games with their friends, complete a craft and watch the performer of their choice. 

Invited guests will log on to our private virtual meeting at the scheduled time.  PopUpPlay and partners will facilitate themed interactive activities with your child and their friends. Children will be able to talk to each other and participate in real time.

Planning your party

PopUpPlay has found that virtual parties are best with a small group of friends. We recommend inviting 10 friends or less for an experience that feels personal. All attendees will need access to an internet connected device with a webcam like a cell phone, tablet or computer. 

Schedule now! All Virtual Birthday Parties are fully refundable or can be transitioned to an in-person party if it becomes possible for your child to party in person. 


Still have questions?  We've got answers.  Fill out the Book Your Party Interest form and we'll set up a time to talk.
