Exploring Life & Business with Brent Kirkpatrick of Party Animals Mobile

Today we’d like to introduce you to Brent Kirkpatrick.

Brent, we appreciate you taking the time to share your story with us today. Where does your story begin?
I have always been an entrepreneur searching for products and services that are new and unique. I was responsible for initially bringing Kona Ice mobile shaved ice and ice cream vehicles to the St. Louis area back in 2007. I loved bringing a new concept to my hometown and making kids smile. Party Animals Mobile is an extension of my passion that now includes my daughter, Kylie. We are a family-run local business that is St. Louis proud. We have provided thousands of dollars back to our community with our fundraising give-back programs!

There is a famous national stuff a bear company that is headquartered in St. Louis. I built upon that concept and merged it with the mobile concept and Party Animals Mobile was born. We create a unique experience that comes to you! You no longer have to load everyone in the car and head to the mall. We bring the fun to your location. We even created a contact-free DIY Stuff-a-Bear Kit that we deliver free locally that contains everything you need for a fun and a unique activity that was created as a response to covid 19.

Can you talk to us a bit about the challenges and lessons you’ve learned along the way. Looking back would you say it’s been easy or smooth in retrospect?
Anytime you start a new concept, you learn along the way. Things you thought would be a huge obstacle sometimes are not and things you thought would be easy are sometimes the most difficult challenges. What is interesting is seeing how others react to a new concept. We know what we envisioned, but sometimes that is not what others assumed and we learn from those expectations. Finding others to work with you with the same passion is always a challenge. I tell everyone, we may have done this thousands of times, but to this child and family, this is their first impression. Create a special experience every time!

As you know, we’re big fans of Party Animals Mobile. For our readers who might not be as familiar what can you tell them about the brand?
Established in 2018, Party Animals Mobile offers a “Create Your Own” stuffed animal experience at your location. Kids get to choose a hypoallergenic animal friend, participate in the stuffing of their friend with our exclusive custom stuffing machine, plus dress their friend up in one of our many outfits and accessories. We even offer custom t-shirts made with whatever logo or text you can imagine. For even more fun, kids can name their new stuffed friend, who will receive its very own birth certificate and be ready to go home to love for years to come. We are excited to personalize your event and make it one of a kind!

Party Animals Mobile can handle any size party anywhere in the Greater St. Louis Area and surrounding counties. We have our Party Visits or our DIY Stuff-a-Bear Kits that are contact-free and delivered locally free of charge.

We also offer fundraising programs for Schools and Charities!

Can you talk to us a bit about happiness and what makes you happy?
Making people smile – one of the greatest gifts in the world. It is very rewarding because you know you have done a good job and made someone’s day.
