I like, as much as possible, for the party favor to be tied to what we've done at the party. Last year, kids got various Lego pieces (from a Pick-a-Brick cup I'd gotten at our last trip to a Lego Store). I think that the combination of a puppy and accessories was such a great idea. I bet most of those kids keep them far longer than they would have any number of plastic trinkets!

I hope so, Mouse! I like the Lego idea--I might run that one by L. for his birthday this year, although he's already saying he wants the exact same theme (cats) as last year...

Such a fun idea!! May have to remember this one if we do a friends party this summmer for B. I know she would go nuts for this theme! :-) The puppies are quite a find, very cute and cuddly for such a bargain. Looks like a great time.

We did have fun--it was one of the best parties I think we planned, T. and I--one to remember!
