FAQs


Do you do hire costumes?
 
Yes we have a large selection of hire costumes for men and women and a few hire items for kids. We do not hire out wigs, masks (with a few exceptions) or weapons. 

What's the difference between costumes for hire and costumes for sale?
 
Our hire costumes are much better quality. The fabric and materials used are far superior and look much more authentic.

What is your hire policy?
 
Costumes are hired out on a weekly basis, we do not do discounts for shorter periods. You do not need to wash the costumes, we do that when they are brought back.

Do I need to pay a deposit on a hire costume?
 
We take your card details but only take off the deposit in the event that the costume is not brought back or is damaged. As soon as the costume is back we give you back your card details of which we hold no record. 
 
Why are you called Frog Orange Party?
 
We have been trading under the name of Frog Orange since 2001. Our shop in Headington sells gifts/cards/balloons/jewellery etc. but is not a party shop. We needed to stick the 'party' bit on the end to differentiate between the two stores. 
 
But why Frog Orange?
 
Why not?! We needed to come up with a shop name in a bit of a hurry, we wrote lots of words down on a piece of paper, Frog & Orange were next to each other and they kept winking at us. We might have had a few glasses of wine at the time, but the name has always worked for us :D
 
What are the strangest things you sell?
 
Hairy moles, zits, rubber latex, derma wax, monster feet, rubber chickens, inflatable bananas, fake boobs, chest hair, stink bombs and whips. We're a pretty serious shop. 
  
Do you open on Sundays?
 
Sometimes. We will be open the Sunday before Hallowe'en, Christmas and New Year. Call to check.
 
Will you deliver?
 
Yes. We deliver all over the UK. The rates are £3.50 First Class, £6.95 for next day courier (order by noon), or free first class delivery over £50.
 
Do you do Children's Party Bags?
 
Yes we have a large range of both party bags and fillers. You can either choose your own or ask us to do it for you. Just state how many bags you need, what you want to spend per bag, the age and gender of the child and we'll do all the donkey work for you. Plus we'll only charge you for what you've bought. Our time is on us. 

Will you set up and decorate a children's party for us? 
 
Yes, provided you buy the decorations and tableware from us, we'll do it for you.

How come you can sell fireworks all year round?
 
We have a special licence to sell fireworks every day of the year. It is legal to let fireworks off every day of the year too so long as it is on your land/garden and before 11pm (before 12pm on bonfire night and before 1am on New Year's Eve). We sell lots of fireworks for weddings and parties, and rockets are very popular for graduations. 

Do you hire out bouncy castles or chair covers. 
 
No.

Can I bring in my own balloons and get you to inflate them?
 
Yes, provided they are helium quality we are happy to help. Charges depend on the size and quantity of balloons.
 
Do you sell professional modelling balloons?
 
Yes we stock bags of 100 x 160Q and 260Q, you can buy in small quantities too.
