Questions we get asked

How long does the experience last?

You will be with us for approximately 1 and a half hours.

What time is the Outdoor Experience?

Our experience starts at 10 am.

What age does my child have to be to come?

The experience is ideally suited to children aged 3 to 10 (older children and adults are welcome but costumes are not provided).

What if I want to bring siblings too?

The Outdoor Experience packages start at £400 for one child. Siblings, aged 3 and over, who are taking part in the full Experience are included for an additional £50. Please talk to us if there are siblings that you’d like to include that are younger than 3.

Where does the Outdoor Experience take place?

We are situated in between Linlithgow and Falkirk, in central Scotland.
Our Outdoor Experience takes place at our home and in the nearby park.

Does the Outdoor Experience run every day?

We run the Outdoor Experience during Spring, Summer and Autumn.

In winter we run The Chrismas Experience which takes place in an indoor studio.

During term time, The Outdoor Experience is available on Saturdays and Sundays.

During Scottish (Falkirk Council) school holidays, The Outdoor Experience is available throughout the week. We only run one experience per day and it is advisable to book well in advance (often months) if you are looking for a specific date.

What if my child hasn’t been around Unicorns before or is nervous when they see Pumpkin?

When we talk on the phone, before you make your booking, we’ll ask about how much contact your child has had with Unicorns before and we can chat about any worries you may have. When you arrive, we take everything at your child’s pace, making sure that they feel comfortable. The first ten minutes will be spent bushing his long silky mane, stroking him and finding out all about him. We don’t rush anything and spend as long as your child needs getting familiar with Pumpkin.

Can we bring our own costume/dress/outfit?

Yes, you certainly can. Your child being comfortable and happy is most important to us. We should hopefully be able to pop our wings down the back, should your child want to wear them, but it’s best to check it with us beforehand if you’re wanting to make sure.

What should we bring on the day?

Please bring your outfit/costume/dress/flower crown if you are providing your own.
Shoes for the photo shoot (open toed are not advised for safety reasons) and wellies/trainers.
Your child’s dressing gown in case they feel chilly.
A snack for afterwards as I am sure they will have built up an appetite! (No drinks / food to be consumed during the experience, apart from water, please).
It can sometimes be muddy in one particular place in the wood if it’s been raining so please bring suitable footwear for yourself too.

How many of us can come?

We suggest a maximum of 2 adults, but if you’d like to bring someone else we can discuss it when we chat on the phone.

How long is the photo shoot?

The photo shoot usually lasts on average 1 hour, depending on your child’s age. Younger children tend to have a shorter attention span than those slightly older.

Can I take photos on my mobile phone?

Photographs on any device are NOT permitted during the experience, but we encourage you to take photographs and /or video the moment your child first sees Pumpkin.

When do I get the photographs?

Within 10 working days of your child’s experience, a link to your online, watermarked, gallery will be sent to you. After you have chosen your 3 included prints, they will be delivered to you within the next 10 working days.

Further prints are available from £20 for an 8” x 6”.
Wall art, framed prints and Keepsake Collections (which can include digital images), are available too.

When do I pay?

To secure your date (weather dependent), we ask for a 50% deposit to be paid at the time of booking.

I like to speak to everyone on the telephone before I accept any deposit, to ensure you and I have all the information we both need for the booking.

The remaining balance is paid on the day of your experience.

Payments may be made byby Paypal, Bank Transfer or Cash.

Do you do parties at the Outdoor Experience?

This particular experience is best suited to one child or siblings.
