It sounds great - I think you hit the nail on the head, it's all about the birthday kid! :0)

I enjoy this kind of brainstorming too. Scooter had a Phineas and Ferb birthday party, and our goody bag included a pencil, pad, and magnifying glass, because they're always thinking up new ideas and exploring. I think those are fun and useful things to give a kid anyway.

One thing we also did was make temporary tattoos according to the theme. They sell the "paper" for this at some craft stores, and it can go in the printer. That was our big find this year.

I had no idea you could buy the paper for temporary tattoos and do them yourselves! Wow...I'll have to keep this in mind. L. Doesn't like temporary tattoos, but I'm sure his party guests would (and I'll keep this in mind for T.'s party in January, too).
