Happy Birthday to Us


Happy Birthday to Us!We're turning ten, so Cool Stuff is celebrating! Have you ever seen a dog blow out candles?

On our ten-year anniversary we have plenty of fun and excitement to keep you busy over the school holidays. Heaps of events - some really great new ones too, so read carefully, and book early to avoid missing out.

The Ticketek booking office opens on Saturday 16 June. Find out  all about how to book and how to use the Preferential Mail Order Form.

It's our birthday, but YOU get the present! We're having a huge birthday party called the TelstraSaturn Fairytale Ball on 30 June where you come along in costume, play games, win prizes, dance and sing, and eat birthday cake. There's also a pull-out-and-keep birthday card in the activities section  of this website with a brilliant Cool Stuff decoration to cut out and keep. Hang him on your bedroom door, or save him for the Christmas tree! As well as the card there is an activity board with games to play and things to make  those Cool Stuff Cookies look yummy don't they? Have fun kids.

Another surprise is in store for Cool Stuff fans. You can purchase a cheeky birthday Cool Stuff collectible beanie toy for just $7 from the TelstraSaturn Fairytale Ball, Kids Aren't Square concert, and Creative Kids. Don't miss out, he's a limited edition!

We've included the following symbols to let you know which events are weather dependant, parent friendly (adult required), parent free, or just plain free!
