Hire Services

Badge Machine Hire

ACT Playgroups has a badge machine which it makes available to hire for one week at a time. It must be booked ahead of time, on a first come first served basis.

We sell the required bits to make either badges, keyrings or fridge magnets. The machine makes badges 5.7cm in diameter.

Hire costs include a refundable deposit, machine hire cost and purchase of the badge/ keyring/ magnet parts. Please contact our office to find out the current costs.

We hire the machine out to both members of the ACT Playgroups Association as well as non-members. A discounted hire fee applies to members. Please note however, that we do not post/ship the machine and you would need to pick it up during opening hours from our office in Cook, ACT. It is therefore not possible to hire the machine to persons outside of the ACT and nearby surrounding area.

Santa Suit Hire

When it comes time for the jolly man in red to visit your playgroup, he’ll need something to wear! We can help with the hire of a Santa Suit including jacket, trousers, hat, belt, hair and beard at a reasonable cost. While we have  several suits to hire, they must be booked in advance and are hired for a period of three days. All suits must be returned laundered. Bookings are taken on a first come, first served basis.

Bookings can be made for either service by contacting us by email or phone.
