Move over Tooth Fairy and that elf lying on some shelf. Happy The Birthday Bird ($39.99) has landed! Happy is here to create an annual tradition for the one 24-hour holiday that every kid celebrates no matter where they live, how they pray, or family income. Incredibly, the toy industry has not come up with a Happy Birthday-centric toy until mompreneur Monica Goodson walked around the American International Toy Fair earlier this year. She just knew she had something special to share with children everywhere.In fact, it was one of those ideas that retailers and parents say in retrospect, why didn’t I think of that? Jersey Shore shoppers in Ocean City, NJ are the first to see Happy The Birthday Bird at retailer Salty Treasurers. Online and in-store orders are “flying” off the shelves.

About The Creators

Happy Birthday Thomas & Friends!

The end of the school year is here, and there is no better way to celebrate than with a wholesome party for the kids featuring everyone’s favorite train, Thomas! We had the chance to throw a one of a kind Thomas party for the kids and a few friends, and it was so much fun! We were literally chugging away towards making memories to last for a long time! This post is a sponsored post, but all opinions, stories, and my experience are all personal and true (like always)!

All we needed was some fun themed supplies, like these cute cups and napkins, and a few boxes of crayons to accompany the great coloring sheets. With some snacks and drinks, toys to explore and Thomas in the background, everyone had a lot of fun. It was a welcome chance for everyone to blow off a little steam after the end of the year rush!

We weren’t just celebrating the end of the year, Did you know that on May 12th Thomas had a special birthday? For more than 73 years Thomas has been delighting kids and inspiring a love of learning as well as a good set of values to carry them through life!

Sometimes it can be hard to find television shows for children that are mommy approved, but I never have to worry about that with Thomas the Train! All four of my little ones enjoy watching Thomas. Thomas teaches and reinforces valuable life lessons while entertaining them at the same time, so this mommy definitely approves of Thomas! With May being his birthday month, we have had the chance to focus on the joy Thomas has brought to our family over the years. From building Thomas creations with legos to coloring to watching him on TV, we have had a great time celebrating with Thomas!

Angry Birds Birthday

So a certain someone recently had a birthday. Happy Birthday little man!

marvel and b day 076

And of course with said birthday, we had to have a party. The difficult decision is to nail down a theme. There always has to be a theme, of course. Once this theme is figured out and agreed upon, we ordered supplies. It’s party planning time. Since the little guy loves playing outside and the best place for little kids to run around is a park, we did ours at a local playground. We are huge fans of birthdays at playgrounds.  So now we have the where and when of the party. The theme is figured out, Angry Birds and the next step is the invitations and party supplies. One of the best places to get party supplies is Birthday Express. They specialize in all kinds of party goods, not only birthday parties. Once there the perfect party pack jumped out at us. The Angry Birds Basic Party Pack for 8. The set includes: 8 Dinner & Dessert Plates , 8 Cups, Forks & Spoons , 16 Lunch Napkins, 1 Solid Table cover , 12 Solid Color Balloons, 2 Curling Ribbon Rolls, 16 Cake Candles, and 8 Thank You Notes. Al of which are in a convenient one stop package. We had to order a few packs but the left over paper products will be used of course. Pizza seems to taste better when eaten off of a scowling red bird anyway, doesn’t it? The set is also official Angry Birds merchandise so you know the quality is good.
