For my Sons third birthday with him being Thomas the tank engine mad we decided these would be perfect for his birthday party bags for his guests. We found them for £1.50 for a pack of 8 which is all we need as there was 8 guests at my sons party.
They have a big picture of Thomas himself on the front of the bag blue in colour and his usual happy self puffing along easily recognised by all children as the famous engine from the TV program. This same picture is repeated on the back so it does not matter which way round the bag is held it is full of colour.At the top of the bag there is a whole in the plastic to make a handle for children to hold. Around the top of the bags are different engines from the famous TV program James Percy and Diesel repeated in a loop.
They are well made and worth that little bit extra in my opinion. There are rather roomy and adequate enough size to hold goodies that go in a party bag holding them well without splitting. We managed to fit in a small bottle of bubbles, a book from the mini libraries packs you can buy, a sticker pack, a pen and most importantly a piece of cake.
I would recommend these to any body planning a party for a mini Thomas fan. They hold up well are strong enough to hold what is needed and have enough room to fit in lots of little party goodies for our guests. They are available in different designs and I will be purchasing them again but in a different design for his fourth birthday next month as they were such a big hit! You can buy matching cups, hats, napkins and just about anything else party related.
These party bags come in different designs. The most popular design is the ones shown in the picture I have uploaded. The bags are plastic and measure 22.8cm x 16.5cm. They come in a pack of 8 bags and match the rest of the Thomas party range available.
Each bag is rectangular in shape and has a little carry handle which needs to be popped through. They come in a plastic pack. The design is on one side with the other being completely white. Thomas is all smiles on the front as he puffs down his track with steam blowing everywhere.
~~Availability and Price~~
These little bags are available in Birthday party stores, Tescos and also online through Amazon. Expect to pay between £1.50 and £2.00 per pack of 8.
As I was planning a Thomas themed birthday party for my son, I stocked up on plates, cups, napkins, balloons, masks and party bags for the kids. I had planned of putting together a few treats for the kids taking home and picked up a pack of these in Tesco and a pack in Birthdays as I forgot I had bought the first pack! They are a little more expensive than normal party bags but I thought I would keep the Thomas theme going.
These bags aren't huge nor are they very thick. They are rather thin and flimsy so before the party, I tested out the strength of one or two to be on the safe side. The design is appealing though and I had to make one up for the birthday boy too as he would have been offended if I hadn't! The pop out handle confused me though as it cannot be fully removed without tearing the bag but left on, it looks rather silly. There is enough room for a small hand to carry this bag.
~~Fill Me Up~~
As this was my first party for Ryan where I needed party bags made up, I wasn't entirely sure what to put in them. I picked up packs of Haribo mini sweets, packs of chocolate animal biscuits and bubbles for each child. We only needed to use 1 pack as we had only 7 kids in total attending and myself and my best mate pre made them last night.
Once filled up, the bags weren't bursting from the seams and still had quite a bit of room so could have easily accommodated a small toy but nothing massive. I personally bought the younger kids a character book from the Poundshop each and these were far too big to go in the bag with the exception of my nephews pocket library books which slipped in without splitting the bag. The bag stayed firm with all the goodies inside allowing each kid to take the bag home without fear of the handle splitting.
These little party bags are ideal for Thomas themed parties and I am glad I bought them. I have a pack left over which will be used next year if needed or for taking picnic type things out over the summer with Ryan. They do their intended job and were a big hit with the kids at the party.
