A farm—in your own backyard

Love Zootopia? Bring it home. Traveling zoos are the latest trend in birthday fanfare. Why go to the bunnies or goats or lizards when an ark’s worth of creatures can come to you?

Arendelle or Gotham City

Want to add a special human touch to your Frozen or Batman extravaganza? You don’t need to go to Disney or Comic-Con to bring a real live princess or superhero home. Plenty of stellar companies provide talent to travel. (Sure makes that face-painting clown who came to your basement when you turned seven seem old-school.)
