So from Fireman Sam to Postman Pat, let the countdown of our top toddler party ideas begin!

Fireman Sam

Fireman Sam to the rescue! This is the perfect theme for little children who dream of growing up to be a fireman – or perhaps they just love the TV show!

The striking red, blue and yellow colours make it an easy one to mix and match with other decorations but we’d recommend starting off with a Fireman Sam party pack that contains all your basics to keep the cost down.

Paddington Bear

Ever since he came to London from deepest, darkest Peru, Paddington has been the nation’s favourite teddy bear. Generations of children have loved him and since his recent revival on the big screen, it’s no wonder why he’s still one of our most popular pre-school party themes!

Bright primary colours and a cute Paddington design make this an adorable party theme, so get your marmalade sandwiches and Paddington party supplies at the ready for one of our favourite birthday party ideas for toddlers! (This could even work well as a 1st birthday theme).

Thomas the Tank Engine

Choo choo! Get your birthday party off on the right track with Thomas the Tank Engine and friends.

Thomas is one of our best-loved ideas for a toddler birthday party and once you’ve stocked up on party supplies, why not complete the party with a pull piñata? They’re perfect for pre-schoolers as there’s no hitting involved (just pull on a string) and you can even get one in the shape of a train to match your Thomas theme!

Find all our Bob the Builder party supplies here and if you don’t mind risking the very catchy theme tune getting stuck in your head, why not play musical bumps to it?
