From time to time, I get the opportunity to review products for my readers. I recently got to review Birthday in a Box, an online party-gear superstore. I ordered the Iron Man 3 birthday kit and I received a set of 8 plates, 8 cups, 8 napkins and 8 color-coordinated table settings, all for $7.64 — a great value, I thought. The plates were strong enough for a big slice of birthday cake; the napkins were very nicely printed; as were the cups and the red place settings were very sturdy.
The site has tons of designs and themes, from generic boy/girl stuff, to licensed products, like Disney and My Little Pony. You can shop by theme, child’s gender, grownup themes, etc. There’s also a line of personalized items — mostly non-party stuff, although it does include banners and thank you cards — priced very reasonably. I highly recommend Birthday in a Box. Good stuff, good value and good selection. The big bonus for me was that it saved me a trip to the party store with a three-year-old screaming “I want this! I want this! I want this!” in tow, and without him bugging me to use his party plates once we got home.
