How long should a 3rd birthday party last?

We're holding one for our DS who's turns 3 soon, am aboiut to send out invites and wondered if I should specify an end time along with the start time. It's starting at 2pm so should I say the party is 2-5? Is three hours too long or too short? We're not having a clown or anything, will just be party games and food.

2 hours, I think.

yes specify an end time, two and a half hours maximum.

3 hours is too long. 2 hours.

Yeah, thinking about how long we can all take a playgroup before going crazy, two hours seems like LONG ENOUGH ha ha!
