so have set about organising a toy story themed party for my DS who will be 2! so it is in less than a month now and i feel quite unorganised!

i have booked soft play stuff and ordered a cake but otherwise nothing is done!!!!!

What do you put in party bags? range of ages! want to keep them cheapish and to the theme!

Clever food ideas to link to the theme? wouldn't be fussed but quite a few adults coming!

cheap decorations??

Please help me i'm completely stuck!!!

Not full of ideas I'm afraid, but I did find this

There's a party bag and a gift at the bottom of the page. Not the cheapest, but maybe with a small dinosaur (Rex) or something?

Also Poundland and similar can often be surprising for small party bag items.

There are lots of ideas of Pinterest if you type Toy Story Birthday party ideas into the search smile

There's no need for the whole party bag to be themed. I've not done toy-story specifically but generally I put in 2 or 3 items which are connected to the theme (and therefore likely to be pricier items) and 2 or 3 which are generic and whatever I can get multipacks of in poundland etc. So long as there's some sweets and a couple of toys, it'll be fine.

If you buy sheets of toy-story stickers, you can cut each sheet up by hand into 4 or 6 bits each with a few stickers on.

I usually spend about £20-£30 on themed decorations, paper plates etc from a party website - there are loads of them, just google and shop around for the cheapest. Don't bother paying premium prices for themed cupcake papers, no-one notices them. Themed table-cloths are worth it though I think, they help tie the theme into the party without all the food being themed.

I wouldn't try to be clever with food. At most, buy some of those edible rice-paper cupcake toppers with a toy-story theme.

Keep it simple!

I would say that toy soldiers would be the obvious party bag filler for Toy Story, but most party bag options are 3+ really. Soft toys (and nothing else) would be my go-to option for 2yo's, I think.

Definitely soldiers & stickers... I'd order personalised sweetie bags from eBay ( and fill them with Percy Pigs, like Hamm.

Maybe sheriffs badges and slinkys?

You can do pin the tail on Bullseye and have the children decorate potatoes...

Yellowmoon company is your friend here.

I would put in the party bags:
small tub of playdoh (Toy story theme)
Pack of Percy Pigs (M&S sell multipack of mini percys for party bags)
slice of cake
