To celebrate the 45th birthday of the Mr Men a series of 4 new books and a special edition Mr Men Birthday Party Book are being released. The Birthday Party doesn't quite go to plan. It's Mr Silly's birthday and some of the Mr Men are not really capable of organising a party in spite of their best intentions!
The Mr Men Birthday Party book costs £2.99 and delivery is currently free on Amazon Prime.
This week marks what would have been Roger Hargreaves 91st birthday, and we were invited to have a party to celebrate. It was decided we may as well decorate our Pirate Ship! We were sent some great Mr Men partyware, and we grabbed a few of our Mr Men books from the bookshelves.
It's the first party I've been to where everyone gets sidetracked from eating the party food to read books....(thanks to Tesco for the Little Miss Princess cake).
We had the brand new personalised Silly Birthday Mr Men book to read. It's actually just been my youngest child's birthday, but he thought it was so hilarious he could make the character look just like his brother that he wanted to make the book for him.
The child in the book can be a boy or girl, and their name is also used. They are featured throughout the story. Unsurprisingly this birthday celebration doesn't go quite to plan either. The Mr Men manage to save the day though, somehow it all just works and your child has the best birthday ever...
You can create your own personalised Silly Birthday Mr Men Book in a couple of minutes - and I have a 20% Discount for my readers. The personalised books take around 2 weeks postage and cost £8.99 as a story library edition, or £12.99 as a gift edition, and arrive with a really smart birthday certificate. To get 20% off, use the code pblogger20 and your personalised book will only cost £7.20 or £10.40 for the larger format gift edition.
As we had a character in our Mr Men book who looked like one of us, we had a little bit of fun with a blanket and some black tape and cushions, recreating our favourite Mr Men character. The boys wanted to be Mr Jelly, but we couldn't get him quite wobbly enough...
A bit of swift thinking though and our Mr Jelly became Mr Greedy....
