Birthday Party Bags
Birthday party bags are the traditional party bag you may have had when you were a child, a small rectangular plastic bag similar to a shrunk carrier bag from a shop (not the supermarket variety) with a design on the front and possibly the rear.
The shape is still the same, although you can now buy extra large Birthday Party Bags if you are really going to town with your party gifts but the real difference comes from the quality of the printing, the vast array of themes, colours and the speed in which they are available for new motion films or International Children’s characters.
If there is a new international film, popular television character or children’s theme there will be a party bag. The Star Wars party bags were available before the new film was released. The Frozen party bags were a little slow onto the market after the films huge success but it was not long before a even more designs featuring the popular characters were available to choose from.
The real advantage with Birthday Party bags is the way they can support you and your child’s expectation. If your child really wants a Spiderman, princess, Dragons, dinosaurs, pirate, Thomas The Tank Engine or even ballet party you can go to town, buy the relevant themed decorations, maybe a few costumes, a children’s entertainer all to support the theme or you may be able to get away with a themed birthday cake and a party bag, the gifts may not even have anything to do with your party theme, if your child is happy and your party fits your budget then your job is complete.
I found Birthday party bags particularly useful at the toddler’s stage. Trying to escape from a party venue they have suddenly decided this is the best place in the whole word and they never want to leave, then having to negotiate a car park when they do not want to be carried and then they are clutching their prized party bag, the handles really do make a big difference. The fact that they can open the party bag, explore and retrieve their goodies without having to struggle to open the bag and/or dropping it on the floor whilst you try to drive home made a huge difference. An image with a popular character they can recognise all adds to the marvel of the party, even if you do think your life will never be free of Thomas & Friends or Peppa Pig.
When your children are slightly older and they want a say in the theme of their party, they will also probably want their party to be about something they really think is important and want their friends to know about, so whether it is football, Disney princesses or My Little Pony there is a Birthday party bag even if it is not something you would have chosen
Birthday Party Bags are cheap to buy and if you acknowledge some may remain on the car floor for a few days whilst the contents are taken away to be played with or consumed the prices and designs may suit your party better. The general themed Birthday party bags are 9p each and cover themes relating to ballet, birthday celebrations for girls and boys, butterflies, dinosaurs, farm animals, fairies, football, horses, monsters, pirates, princesses, generic superheroes, wild animals and seasonal images.
If a party bag has a licensed image (this is a recognised image where the image, advertising and presentation of the character is owned by a studio or company) then the Birthday party bags are more expensive ranging from 18p to 20p. We have party bags for the following licensed characters, Angry Birds, Ariel, Avengers Heroes, Batman, Big Hero 6, Bubble Guppies, Cinderella, Disney Princesses, Doc McStuffin, Dragons, Fireman Sam, Frozen, Hello Kitty, Jake and The Never Land Pirates, Minions, Minnie Mouse, Moshi Monsters, My Little Pony, Paw Patrol, Peppa Pig, Sofia The First, Skylanders, Spiderman, Star Wars, Superman, Thomas & Friends, Toy Story, Winnie the Pooh.
