Well, he decided on a Nightmare Before Christmas birthday party and that's what we set out to create. In addition, Playskool sent an amazing package of party gear to make the day even more amazing for not only Liam, but all of the guests as well. Liam invited his preschool class for the event and we ended up with about 10 kids in all, along with family members and parents, attending the party. We set up two huge tables right at the front door, so kids could take a look at all of the goodies as soon as they walked in. The first table had assorted Halloween snacks and treats. The other table was dedicated to Playskool, with all of the toys and the new Let's Imagine Elmo!
Now, this party was a bit different than most birthdays because each guest got to pick a toy from the Playskool table. The Let's Imagine Elmo was the centerpiece and something the kids could play with throughout the party. They could choose between:
Stack N' Spin Monkey Gears
Transformers Mixable, Mashable Heroes
But the real star of the party was the new Let's Imagine Elmo!
Now for the fun! We also set up a bounce house for the kids and had someone come in to paint faces! In addition, we had a witch hat game and some delicious pizza (Liam's favorite food).
After playing and eating outdoors, we came inside for cake and presents.
As I mentioned earlier, the best part about the party was that everyone got a gift, not just Liam. Thanks to Playskool, all the boys and girls took turns picking out their favorite toy to take home with them. This way, they also had something to play with after gifts were opened.
The Transformer Mixable, Mashable Mr. Potato Head Heroes were such a huge hit with the kids and the smaller children loved the Stack N' Spin Monkey Gears. However, everyone loved the new Elmo Musical Let's Imagine Elmo.
There is a reason the Let's Imagine Elmo is on the top of all the Christmas Toy Lists for stores. This is a toy all Sesame Street fans will enjoy! It retails for $39.99, so it is also affordable.
