Title: Fun For Kids
Date:December 6, 2011
"The kids always seem to enjoy these at parties. I put them in their favor boxes. The blowouts come separate from the Caillou decoration and you have to attach them yourself so make sure you leave time to do so. These, however, do come with instructions as to how to put them on the blowouts to make sure you do it right so that helps a lot. It doesn't take long, you just basically stick the blowout through the two holes in the cardboard decoration and you are done. The kids had a lot of fun with these."

Title: Great Deal For Those On A Budget
Date:December 6, 2011
"It includes all the necessary items for a cheap price. If you bought all the items separately, it would be a lot more. It has everything you need except maybe the centerpiece or a foil balloon if you are looking for extras like that. It has plates, cups, table cloth, napkins, forks/spoons, and even some decorations like balloons. However, the balloons are just generic solid color or with stars on them and the table cloth is just a solid color disposable one. The plates, cups, and napkins are basically the only theme items. I think it is well worth the money if you want theme items but need to be cheap."
 
Package includes 8 cardboard hats (with elastic chin straps) to match your party theme. Easy assembly. Some ADULT assembly required. This is an officially licensed Caillou product.

Title: Adorable Hats
Date:December 6, 2011
"These hats are cute, but they do take some work putting them together. On the downside, there are no instructions that come with them so you are on your own to figure out how to get the hats to fit together perfectly and then how to attach the strings that come separately. It's basically self explanatory, but it would have saved time knowing exactly where everything went initially such as where the strings attached. Plus when putting the hat together, there is only a slit and a piece that slides into the slit like a puzzle and locks into place holding the shape of the hat. You can lose a lot of time trying to get the piece in the slit just so so. I had to slide the bottom of it in first to even get the top of the piece to go into the hole and then let it slide up to lock into place. It's not really as complicated as it sounds once you know what you're doing. It's just the initial figuring it out that can be frustrating. The kids like them though."
 
Package includes 8 paper cups to match your party theme. Cups are versatile enough to serve warm or cold beverages. Each holds 9 fl. oz. This is an officially licensed Caillou product.

"These cups are nicely decorated and durable. They are a little small though so they work well with kids, but you may want a back up of bigger plastic cups for any adults that may be attending."

"These plates are not only nice and colorful, but very durable as well. They are great for cake and ice cream without worrying about the plate giving way. The kids love the picture, the adults love the durability...it's a win win."

Title: Kids Love These
Date:December 6, 2011
"I used these as a party favor and the kids loved them. I had kids ranging in age from 2-5 and all liked them. The only draw back is the younger kids need instruction from adults to be able to get the whistle to sound. Once they figure it out, they love it though. It was a little harder to get these to sound than other wooden train whistles I've seen, but they were fun none the less. I only wish they could have been cheaper for those who have to purchase favors for a lot of kids."

Title: Great Deal
Date:December 6, 2011
"I got these and made my own favor boxes. They weren't really hard to put together, my only complaint is I wish someone would have told me the easiest way to form the box. I initially spent a lot of time trying to fix the bottom of the boxes so they stayed together rather than reverting and leaving me with a box lacking a trustworthy bottom. I finally figured out if I just popped the sides out the bottom naturally went together as needed. It may sound complicated, but it really isn't. There is no taping and such needed, you just pop the box together and close the top. It could only have been better if a diagram was included to save me some time. The kids seemed to like them. They seemed very durable as well. They kept their shape and the strong handle allowed for numerous items to be placed in the boxes. Definitely worth the effort."

Title: Great Quality
Date:December 6, 2011
"I absolutely loved this banner. It was nice and big and colorful. The print was easily seen as well. It is heavy and durable though so you will need to hang it up using string or something similar in the holes provided. It may be hard to tape, etc. due to the material used. I ordered the standard size and it was plenty big, even a little bigger than I expected. I couldn't imagine needing a bigger one."

Title: Lots of Fun
Date:December 6, 2011
"I love these things, however I would only recommend them for older kids and adults. Younger kids can have fun with them if carefully watched by an adult so no one is hurt. They aren't really dangerous, but have very particular instructions such as not pointing them at people, etc. I also noticed some of them didn't want to pop easily so I had to pull the string multiple times. On a side note, it smells like you've been shooting fireworks when you pop them. I popped mine inside. Easy to clean up."
 
Kids absolutely love stickers, especially when they coordinate with your child’s party theme. They make terrific prizes for games, and fun fillers for favor boxes, too. This is an officially licensed Caillou product.

Title: Exactly as Expected

"These nice big stickers are great for younger kids who love Caillou. They are big enough to keep the younger kids from trying to eat them, yet the perfect size for sticking on just about anything. Great for favor boxes."
