We are in the midst of planning for Beeper's 7th birthday over here. This is the photo that will go on the front of his invitation. What was an interest in Legos in the past couple of months has evolved into an obsession so all notions of a HP wizarding birthday party were chucked aside in the interest of Legos.
And if you are interested about the Lego figures above, some of the figures in the photo are from various Lego sets Beeper already owns, but many of them (the punk rockstar, the surfer girl, frankenstein, etc) are from the individual Lego minifigures (series 4) you can purchase for $3 each--we bought them as favors for the party. I love these figures (especially that gnome with the fishing pole--perhaps a favor for mommy?) but the downside about them is that they come packaged individually in little opaque bags and you do not know which figure you are purchasing--just that it will be one of the 16 that are part of that particular minifigures series. Honestly, this really irritated me at first, but then when Beeper and I opened the packages together it was oddly thrilling to discover what each package contained--it is all about cheap thrills over here, people. Anyway, you just have to be okay with the fact that you will likely have some duplicate figures (we did--the punker and the French artist).
I will be back with more party details as we manage to work out what they will be--including how you keep Legos contained when you plan to have the birthday party outdoors at your neighborhood park.
