This year marks 45 years of Mr Men, and as May 9th is author Roger Hargreaves Birthday too, it is the perfect time for a Mr Men birthday party celebration! Egmont Publishing have just released a new Mr Men book called “Mr Men Birthday Party” which my children all enjoyed. Our Mr Men books are so well loved and have been read over and over again, so new additions to our Mr Men collection are always welcomed!
Mr Men Birthday Party tells the story of Mr Silly’s birthday party. Mr Birthday is supposed to be organising it, but is feeling under the weather so Little Miss Helpful steps in but unfortunately assigns tasks to the wrong people and the whole thing is starting to turn into a bit of a disaster…
It’s a great funny story in typical Mr Men style. There’s also a special personalised birthday book that you can order to feature your own child and the Silly Birthday.
You can add your child’s name, one of their friends names and even select your options so that the child in the illustration looks like your child, which gives great results. These personalised print to order Mr Men books would make a lovely birthday present to keep throughout the years. Like the main book, it also includes Mr Birthday and Mr Silly, and there are lots of laughs throughout the story.
To celebrate the Mr Men birthday we had our own little celebration at home complete with this super cute Little Miss cake, which is available from Tesco
Mr Men Costume
We decided to let our teddy get in on the fun and dressed him up as Mr Birthday from the Mr Men Birthday Party book. How cute does he look? This is a really simple costume which we made from a painted cereal box that we slipped over his arms, and we decorated his party hat with coloured duct tape and ribbon. You could easily up-size this costume to fit a child too, as long as you have a big enough box to use.
