In my (off and on) constant search for cool new Buzz Lightyear items, today I ran across an entire category I’ve previously missed… party favors! I’m going to start with party favor boxes, just because they showed up at the top of my results list.
These Toy Story 3 Treat Boxes truly are a treat. Very clean design, great graphics, and amazingly like the Buzz Lightyear Boxes the toys in the movie came in. As a matter of fact, one Amazon customer stacked hers on a shelf in rows just like the toy shelves in Al’s Toy Barn from Toy Story 2.
To be clear, these do NOT include the treats. That’s your job… These are flat cardboard sheets measuring 8″ x 6″. They have to be folded up, candy and toys put in, and sealed. Once the box is sealed shut, it cannot be opened without tearing. Be sure it’s loaded correctly before sealing it.
The boxes have enough room for some small candies and toy. The same customer I mentioned above suggested a single green plastic army man. I think that’s a very clever idea, and appropriate to the Toy Story theme.
There are 4 boxes (actually, flat sheets of cardboard to be folded into a box) per pack. With the image quality printed on the boxes, these look extremely nice. If I had a Buzz Lightyear-themed party… and these were provided… I would most certainly keep a few just for display. (Monique, are you listening?)
I really wouldn’t care about candy being in the boxes or not, but a small properly-themed toy would be great. If not an army man, then maybe a Buddy figure… those include most of the Toy Story characters in a small format.
I like these Buzz Lightyear treat boxes. Yes, it’s something of a do-it-yourself project. You’ll have to assemble them and provide your own filler. But the price is more than reasonable, and leaves plenty of room for creativity. If they showed up at MY party, I would be very happy!
