My daughter's birthday is coming up. She's really like blue's clues, dora the explorer and Go diego go. I want to incoporate characters for a party... but I'm stumped lol what do you think? Has this happened to you? I don't know which she likes more! have you ever just blended characters together for your kid's birthday? If it was up to me, she'd have a tinkerbell party but the party is not for me it's for her LOL.:) You moms always have great ideas!

I think Dora and Diego would be easy to combine since Diego is a spin off of Dora. I am not sure how Blue would fit in though. Is she old enough that you could ask her which one she likes more and get a real answer?

No :( she's turning 2. But I ask her what do you like Blues Clues or Dora and she says "Yesh." She interacts better with Dora and Diego ... so I guess I answered my own question lol. I think she like blue's clues but because theres limited physical interaction ("Say it with us..." or asking the kids to jump or shake like dora and diego do) she just sits there for Blue's clues and points to the color or shape she knows. A Dora and Diego party would be cute! Thanks!

My 20 month old LOVES DORA. She likes to dance around when the music starts to play. I think a DORA theme for her birthday would be a good idea too.

My son will celebrating his 1 year old on December so i never yet experienced how to make a very nice birthday party. But you've got a wonderful idea, blending all her favorite cartoon character will surprise her and her friends will gonna love it too. For balloons you can have blue's clues, dora and go diego printed character and for the cakes maybe you will having a three layer for each character. Good luck to your kid's birthday party, share your pix for it. Happy posting.

I would check out Oriental Trading and see what they have for parties. Then I would choose one character depending on the packages they offer. You can usually find a Dora pinate at WAlmart. Maybe then have a blue cake and diego gift bags if you want to have them all together.

You know sunshine, I was just on their site today -- The page with dora stuff was down lol. But I found one site that was super cheap for dora stuff. I love birthday express but it could cost you (cause you want all the accessories!) I did a first birthday cupcake birthday last year with all the fixings ... yowza! Thanks for the response - great idea!

I'd go go crazy with the characters. I'll have Dora as cake. Maybe have the Backpack as a pinata. Get Dora notebooks and stationery as door gift. You can have Dora's color coordinated decorations. You can also download a picture of Dora and make a coloring competition for the children with Dora doll as a present.

yes, in fact, i did just that for her school party. i knew that my daughter likes barney best so i got her a barney cake and a piƱata. her giveaways were backpacks but i didn't want the kids to have backpacks of the same design so i got different characters but filled it up with barney stuff. her tarp (which was recycled because i wasn't able to have one printed) was dora. i think kids will like it more if they see all their favorite characters in a party. it's just us moms who like coordinated stuff. :-)
