Mommy/child playdate with Fisher Price

I had a great party on Saturday for Moms and their kids ages 6-36 months. I had an amazing opportunity to host a "house play date" sponsored by Fisher Price. House Party is the website that I was originally introduced about becoming a finalist in hosting a house party. I signed up to be on the list for the Fisher Price Event. Out of 20,000 people, I was one of the VERY lucky finalists. Then, I needed to hurry and send them an e-mail letting them know I am interested and can indeed be a host. Once that was confirmed, and I got the Congratulations e-mail, Fisher Price sent me 4 of their newest Fisher-Price toys to enjoy with my kids, and introduce them to my friends and their kids. Here are the four toys we got: Laugh & Learn™ Smart Bounce & Spin Pony™ , Laugh & Learn™ Fun With Friends™ Musical Table, Amazing Animals™ Spinnin' Around Musical Zoo, and Go Baby Go!™ Crawl & Cruise Musical Jungle™!! House Party has several parties going on all the time. Most of the parties are sponsored by companies (free product) for you to show and experience with friends in your home. You can host the party elsewhere, like at another friend's house, a church, park, etc. A House Party™ is a thousand parties on one day, in homes nationwide, with an exclusive brand experience at the center of the action. I agree with their motto, if that is what it is. I was amazed at the product that Fisher Price sent me, and the best part~ I get to keep them! Wow, huh? I was also given 10 party gifts formy friends that could come to the house party! Fisher Price sent me: a few Brilliant Basics™ Rock-a-Stack®, a couple of Brilliant Basics™ Poppity Pop™ Train and a couple of Brilliant Basics™ Poppity Pop™ Dump Truck. We also had some Brilliant Basics™ Snap-Lock® Beads - Vehicles. I thought it was very generous of Fisher Price to send all those products to help introduce their new toys. I knowthat it was amazing marketing. Fisher Price also sent a guide book, a coupon, and a survey for the party, with a chance to win another large toy! I love Fisher Price, and it is definitely a name families can trust! I know that the moms and kids that came had a great time, and enjoyed spending time with their kids, too. The time went fast with playtime, coloring (thanks to party favors from House Party), and eating. My friend, Lisa, was kind enough to make a cake, and my friend Nicole brought some fruit. Thanks to all my friends that came with your kids! I hope you had a great time, and that your kids enjoyed themselves!
The only regret I have, OK 2 regrets that I have are: I wish I had planned more ahead with food preparations, and I wish I took more, and MORE photos!

That's awesome that you got a House Party. I haven't gotten into any of the ones I've applied to lately. Make sure you use their blog and upload pictures because word is leaking out that the quality of prior parties is effecting ability to get into new ones!

I thought it was a great party! The toys they sent were fantastic! Donnie and both want to get the one with the animals going in circles for the kids.
Sam loves his truck.
