"Wow, that was fast!” was what I was thinking when I opened my front door and found that my Birthday In a Box had been delivered. I waited until Lil Man wasn't looking, and then I stashed the box in the basement before he could see it. I was excited to see what was inside, but I had to wait until nap time. I didn't want him to get a glimpse of it until we had it all set up and ready for him.
Finally, I was able to take a peek. And I was not disappointed. My box contained a Cookie Monster Pinata with 3lbs of candy. And I'm talking the good stuff - warheads, lemon drops, blow pops, sweeties and the list goes on and on. I admit that Hubby and I indulged a little (ok, maybe a lot) in the candy before it ever made it in the pinata.
I wasn't sure how Lil Man would react to the pinata. He’d never been at a party where there was one. So I wasn't sure what his reaction would be. Since he’s only 2, we decided that blindfolds wouldn't be necessary.
His eyes got big when he saw Cookie Monster. I got Lil Man's toy bat, and Hubby put the pinata in the tree. I thought we'd have to 'show' him what to do. It wasn't necessary. Apparently, if you hang something eye level in front of a toddler, and give him a bat, he will know he's supposed to hit it. And hit he did.
I'm not sure who enjoyed it more - me or Lil Man. The neighbors probably thought I was crazy as I squealed with him because he was so excited.
|He was more than ready to get started|
|Didn't take him long to figure out what to do|
|Let the Fun begin!|
What a fun fun day we had! Lil Man was more than thrilled. And Hubby and I couldn't help but share in his excitement.
I would definitely use BirthdayInABox for my next party. Both the delivery time and product were exceptional.
Full Disclosure: BirthdayInABox provided me with a pinata free of charge for the purpose of providing a review. My opinions are completely my own based on my experience.
