The thoughts are mine.
Sometimes in the middle of a mundane week, you just need to have a party. And when HouseParty.com sends you a huge box full of toys, it makes the party really easy....
Now that B has been using the Pleygo toy rental service for a couple of months, P has been feeling left out in the new toy department. That made getting accepted for a Duplo House Party extra special because it was going to be toys for preschool age kids like him. It definitely didn't hurt that the toys we received were all Disney themed for shows he loves watching. I was surprised he didn't latch on to the biggest toy and refuse to share, but instead decided that "Skipper's Flight School" was the one that was only for him.
When you host a House Party there is usually not a requirement or strict instructions on what to do with the product at your party. At all of my parties in the past, I've sent toys or items home with the party guests as they're leaving. I've always figured it'd be pretty greedy to keep them all, but more just don't think my kids need to be buried in 6-8 brand new toys at one time. I did the same thing and sent 4 sets of Lego Duplos home with P's friends and cousins. This time I did keep one for each of my boys.
So what did HouseParty.com provide for today's party? Here's the list...
Count that up and it included 6 full Duplo sets ranging in price from $14.99-$39.99 in addition to all the fun party favors and decorations. For us, it all added up to party success!
Interested in hosting your own House Party? It's quick and easy to sign up at houseparty.com. Here are a few tips to get you started:
- Requirements for each party vary, but this is not a program just for bloggers. If you like getting free things, you can host a party.
- Feast or famine. The number of parties available at one time varies quite a lot. When I applied for this party there were 8-10 open parties, but when I went on to apply for new parties today there is only 1 available. Check back often.
- My experience has been that once accepted for a party, it'll be 6-9 months before being accepted again. This is not written anywhere in the terms and conditions, but after hosting several parties, this seems to be about the length of time between parties.
