"I purchased a vinyl banner for my 1st daughter and I take her picture next to it every year at her birthday. She is 5 now, and it is awesome to look at the pictures and see how much she changes from year to year! I had another daughter who will be 1 soon, and knew that I had to have another banner to continue the tradition. :) Great product. Holds up well through multiple uses, we hang it outside for about a week, so that it is hanging for the actual birthday and again for the party."
