And over Little Bins for Little Hands they have a whole play box dedicated to this theme!

Here's what's in their party play box:

pretend food
pretend coffee maker (a must here)
party goods, hats, noise makers, balloons, old birthday cards
card making supplies
books about birthday parties for inspiration
games or music makers for entertainment
dress up clothes, hats, or masks

If your child wants to throw the party for someone why not suggest holding it for one of their favourite toys? Here at Inner Child Fun they are throwing the birthday bash for their Teddy! Genius idea!
