How to have a Zhu Zhu Pets Birthday Party Theme

So last year it was Webkinz and now this year it is Zhu Zhu Pets – funny how things change so quickly and we move from one toy to the next.  It is just how things go and when the kids are obsessed with a new toy they will soon be asking you to throw them a party based on that theme. Again just like last year when Webkinz were all the craze there was no Birthday Party Supplies available to go along with them and this year with the Zhu Zhu Pets it is the same thing.  I helped so many parents last year with my Webfriendz Birthday Party Package based on a Webkinz Theme so this year I am helping again.

I worked really hard and put together a Zhu Zhu Pets Birthday Party Theme on my Party Blog to help parents in this situation. I am happy with how it turned out and I think I will be thanked again. I came up with the perfect Party Supplies, Invitations, Party Favors, Cake and Cupcake Ideas, Crafts and even created a bunch of  fun Zhu Zhu Pet Party Games and more.  It is not easy planning a party when there is nothing available out there to help  – well now there is and it is all laid out for you from start to finish. I plan to make sure my post is updated with all the latest party supplies as I find them. I just know once Christmas is past and the kids have their toys that parents will be scrambling as Birthdays come around. I have seen it happen before – so I did what I do best and took away that worry.

The Princess and The Frog Birthday Party Ideas

With the upcoming release of Disney’s newest movie The Princess and The Frog December 12th 2009 all the girls will be wanting to have this theme for their Birthday Party. Understandable being this is the first time in years that Disney has introduced us to a new Princess and it will be well worth the wait. Princess Tiana will appeal to all the little girls and we be very welcomed into the Disney Princess circle.

So of course being The Party Animal I have been on top of all the planning and put together some really great resources for you to find all your supplies, ideas, games, activities and more. I am going to share them with you here – so if you are looking to plan a Princess and the Frog Party than look no further, because I have done all the work for you already.

So in celebration of Princess Tiana and your Little Birthday Princess here are all the resources to have the most MAGICAL Birthday Party fit for a Princess:

For you one stop shop I have created a Squidoo Page: The Princess and The Frog Birthday Party Supplies, Ideas and More.

You will find EVERYTHING you need to make this party theme happen right there. From your Princess and The Frog Paper Goods, Invitations, FREE Printable Party Games, Activities, Birthday Cakes & Cupcake Ideas, Party Favors – you name it  is there. Everything related to Princess Tiana, Princes, Frogs and Kisses which is what the movie is based on – if only real life could be the same.

I have even created a special Stuff a Frog Party Activity to go along with this party theme.  It is a Plush Frog the kids can stuff at the party and the Frog is available in 15″ or 8″ size  depending on your budget. Each Stuffable Frog Kit comes complete with Frog, Stuffing, Wishing Star Insert, Pink Princess T-Shirt, Kiss Sound Chip and Custom Birth Certificate. It is the PERFECT party activity for your Princess and the Frog Party and it also doubles as your party favor. They are similar to a Build a Bear, but the kids do this at home and stuff their frogs by hand.

If you are looking to play Dress up you may like my page on Princess Tiana Costumes.  I have featured all the latest Princess Tiana Costumes, Shoes, Tiaras, and more. If your little girl is a HUGE fan then you will want to make sure she has some of the latest Princess Dresses to add to her collection. They are even perfect for her to wear at her Birthday Party. They are also great if you are taking a trip to Disney World – have them on hand prior to your trip and save yourself a ton of money vs. having to buy them while you are in the park.

Last but not least if your are looking for ideas for your Princess and the Frog Birthday Cake I have a Hubpage I put together on Frog Birthday Cakes and Cupcakes you may want to take a look at. There are a lot of great ideas you can find for inspiration and they are all very easy to create and would be perfect for your party. I think they are adorable.

Oh I almost forgot – I also added FREE Printable Princess Tiana Coloring Pages to my Party Blog  – they make a great addition to your favor bags and cost nothing, but ink and paper – gotta love that!!

So I think I have this entire Party Theme covered and I know you will be happy to have stumbled across this.  So have a great party and I hope it is as Magical as the movie.

Is the Webkinz hype dying?

webkinz

There was a time when everyone had to have a Webkinz from Ganz – well all the kids at least.  I am wondering if the hype is now starting to fade away.  I just updated one of my many Squidoo pages about all the New and Upcoming Webkinz and as I was doing that I wondered.  Even though Ganz is still releasing new Webkinz Plush and other products its seems to me that things have slowed down in sales. Two years ago these virtual pets were one of the hottest toys on the market and I know first and being my daughter was all about them. Even my party business took off with my Webkinz Birthday Party Theme I created called the Webfriendz Party Package.  The party package is still available, but sales for that have slowed as well.  I have seen a jump in sales for my Webkinz Party Favors – KrispyKinz which are the Chocolate Covered Rice Krispy Treats that resemble Webkinz Animals, but my thoughts are Webkinz may soon fade out.

There have been many attempts on other products from Ganz like the Webkinz Trading Cards, Webkinz Figurines, Webkinz Mouse Pads, Webkinz School Supplies, Webkinz Carriers and Purses, Webkinz Christmas Ornaments, Webkinz Beauty Line, Kinz Clothing, Webkinz CharmsOutfits for the Webkinz and more.  I think all of those have also faded out now and never really took off in my opinion. I think the kids just wanted the plush that they could play with online.

It has been awhile since I have looked at all the new Webkinz and some of the new ones are very adorable, but somewhere along the line I got lost in the over production of merchandise that came out all at once. I have a feeling as a parent I am not the only one. I think it became very hard for the kids to keep up on them all and most seemed to lose interest. Maybe I am wrong, but I have seen it up close with my own child and those around me.  I will be curious though to see how they fare through the 2009 Holiday Season and if they will stay a Hot item or slowly fade into our memories.  I guess every good thing must come to an end at some point.  I just also wonder what the next big toy craze will be and what my kids will be begging for next.

I will keep all my Squidoo Webkinz Pages fresh as possible  – I am working on cleaning them up now.  Just to note:  My daughter still plays with her Webkinz, but the plush and rarely goes online to play the games.  A complete switch from what it was in the beginning- go figure.  Maybe I am completely wrong, but it just had me thinking – so I thought I would blog.

A Penguin Birthday Party Theme

009

Remember when I said that I was working on a Penguin Birthday Party Theme for my daughter? Well it is over and it was fantastic. I just blogged the entire party details on my party blog: Penguin Birthday Party.  For this party I made all of my own party decorations and even created and made the games with things I had around the house. I wanted to show others that you can have a party that looks like you spent a ton of money when in reality it hardy cost anything.  My money was spent mostly on food to feed the kids and on the party activity which was Stuffing a Plush Penguin and the Penguin Party Favors.

Penguin Cupcake 7

I even made my own Penguin Cupcakes which I also have featured on my party blog with Step by Step instructions on the two styles I made and they were a huge hit. The kids played games like Musical Ice Bergs, Save the Penguin from the Ice, Feed the Penguin and more and you can find all the directions on my blog.

Again my point is even though it took me time to make everything  for the party it is so worth it in the end. Not only do you save a lot of money, but your party will never be the same as anyone else and the kids really love that too. Now do not say you are not creative – all the things I made and did anyone can do too. That is why I have my party blog so I can share with parents how easy it is and to also show you all the unique birthday party supplies out there you may not have ever known about.

Now I get to rest a bit with planning my own children’s parties being my next one is in the winter. BUT I will continue sharing great ideas and helping other parents make their child’s day extra special. Need Help with your party – just contact me – I love a good challenge.

Webkinz Birthday Party Favors

001

Are your kids huge fans of Webkinz? Are you planning a Webkinz Birthday Party? This is one area I know a lot about. Not only do I offer a Webfriendz Party Package that gives you the entire party plan in one place, but I also carry Krispy Kinz. So what are they? They are Chocolate Covered Rice Krispy Treats that resemble all of your favorite Webkinz.  These make the perfect party favor to your Webkinz Birthday Party. These treats are huge as you can see from the picture of my daughter holding some. Each one is about 4-5 ounces and they each come individually wrapped and on a stick. They are all made fresh to order and you can mix and match your animals.

CHIH

Honestly it took me 3 sittings just to eat mine and the kids love them. I am actually using the penguin for my daughter’s penguin party today as the party favor. So the animals can work with any theme not just Webkinz. You can take make a small gift tag saying something like “Thank you for coming to my party it was Sweet of you” attach it to each with some ribbon and that is all you need – favors done. Not only are they BUDGET FRIENDLY, but they are unique and delicious.

MARIO

In addition to the Krispy Kinz Line you can also find some other design favorites like Mario, Abby Cadabby, Elmo, Sports and so many more… Just visit my website for more information; The Party Animal.
