Thank you TRANSFORMERS for sponsoring this post. Join us in celebrating their 35th anniversary!
My exposure to the world of TRANSFORMERS grew when I became a boy mom. Terms like AUTOBOTS, CYBERTRON, and DECEPTICONS are now a part of my everyday vocabulary. I can identify Bumblebee, Optimus Prime, and Megatron in a heartbeat. I may or may not have converted a Bumblebee figure into his signature yellow car while the kids were at school one day, but that’s just between us. There’s always plenty of TRANSFORMERS fun to go around for everyone!
My kids are at a great age where they are obsessed with birthdays. It doesn’t matter who is having a birthday- grandma, a friend, a cousin- my kids believe that everyone should have a themed party. When my birthday came around recently, I involved the kids and asked them what sort of party that I should have this year. The answer was unanimous.
A TRANSFORMERS Party
As moms, we do all sorts of crazy things for the sake of our kids. But as my birthday also aligned with the TRANSFORMERS franchise 35th anniversary (they are celebrating all of 2019), I thought it would be a blast to celebrate them both at the same time.
TRANSFORMERS toys are an imaginative playtime staple in our house. A day doesn’t pass without a TRANSFORMERS robot in hand. TRANSFORMERS is as captivating as they were when my husband played with them during his childhood years. It’s hard to believe that TRANSFORMERS has been around for more than three decades. The Hasbro franchise has brought the catchy MORE THAN MEETS THE EYE tagline to creative kids since 1984.
With TRANSFORMERS being as timeless as it is, the odds are high that we will all host or attend a TRANSFORMERS themed party at some time in our lives. I hope that these highlights from our own TRANSFORMERS 35th anniversary party inspire ideas for your own TRANSFORMERS party.
For decorations, intermix TRANSFORMERS branded items with solid color items. TRANSFORMERS party decoration merchandise is available at a wide array of online and brick-and-mortar stores. The classic colors of TRANSFORMERS go well with classic red, purple, white, black, and yellow. Using a good balance of printed and solid items will make party decor pop.
TRANSFORMERS toys make an organic party table decoration. Gather TRANSFORMERS figures that you already have in your home or borrow some from a friend. When assembling a party table, I like to have decor items that are different heights. Pairing taller TRANSFORMERS toys with shorter ones is visually appealing. TRANSFORMERS figures come in sizes from tiny BotBots all the way to larger scale robots.
For any party, I like to use either party activities or party favors as decor items, too. TRANSFORMERS party hats, party blowers, bouncy balls, stickers, and tattoos are fun additions.
Kids and adults alike enjoyed our TRANSFORMERS party. TRANSFORMERS is a multi-generational brand, and I loved seeing kids and adults working together to convert their favorite AUTOBOT figures. We also introduced a few new TRANSFORMERS toys for them experience.
How will you celebrate the 35th anniversary of TRANSFORMERS?
