Comments:  A Tiny Kingdom is a child's dream come true.  The front of the store is all for the girls while the back is all for the boys.  It's a place where imaginations go to work.  My little girl had her 8th birthday party there.  She said it was the BEST party ever.  I did not have to do a thing since Tiny Kingdom did everything from the invitations to entertaining.   Kids dress up as model, rock stars or super heroes.

If you want to give the best gifts to a 5-7yr old this summer, read this recent post on Collectible Erasers.

For a boy ages 9-14, check out the Phiten Necklace.

Give the best gifts in Birmingham:  Best Birthday gift for boys age 8-12;  Why we love Snoozy’s in Crestline;

It’s easy to throw a fantastic birthday party in Birmingham.  Birmingham Zoo parties fascinate the younger ones and gaming parties wow the older kids.   Planning a birthday party begins with this list of Birmingham businesses that provide space and entertainment for children.

First, consider a great theme.  Animal parties… Ed’s Pet World or Exotic by Nature will bring the animals to YOU!   Summer Party… Birmingham Kona Ice truck or the Splash pad in Gadsden.  Educational… McWane Your Brain.  Active (energy burn)… iJump, Pump It Up or Skates 280.  Art… Do It Yourself Crafts.  The party themes and ideas are endless.

Based on age, the  Pump It Up in Trussville and Pelham were perfect for our 3 & 4 yr old parties, the Birmingham Zoo and McWane are consistently fun and educational parties, and for the sports enthusiast visit Sportsblast.  My budding artist loves Do It Yourself Crafts and Young Rembrandt art parties in Birmingham.  But, you can also create parties at your home with Monkey Business Party Rentals, Painted Personalities (face painting in Birmingham), Noah’s Ark (pony rides) and basically anything you can imagine.

Remember – sometimes the simplest party is the best. The best birthday cakes in Birmingham come from Whole Foods, Ashley Macs, Edgars or Savages!
