Vanessa’s Big Big Party

by Megan

Vanessa is turning two on February 18th, so we are cooking up a celebration over here! Truthfully, it’s going to be a “small small party” with just us and my parents, but let me explain my post title.

We have Netflix, and that means that the kids watch some television shows that are a little obscure.

Exhibit A:

This is “My Big Big Friend.” Vanessa is obsessed with this show. Carter is too. One of Vanessa’s first phrases was “big big fwen!”

So I want to give her a “My Big Big Friend” birthday party. Only problem? You CANNOT get My Big Big Friend merchandise in the United States! The only merchandise that I’ve found is out of Brazil, on websites that are written in Portuguese. The prices are pretty steep, nevermind the shipping costs, if they would even ship to the US!

But my plan is to make this party happen anyway! My mom is a pretty skilled artist, and she made these to hang on our wall:

Awesome, right? I know Vanessa is going to LOVE them!

In addition, I’m going to get a custom cake made with an image of the characters, and then I’m going to get party supplies in matching colors: streamers, cups, plates, etc. I’m also going to print out some of the characters and “gluestick” them to the cups.

I also got some coloring pages from this site, so that’s an activity the kids can do while the adults chat.

So I think our “big big” party is going to work out! I wish I could surprise Vanessa with a Big Big Friend stuffy. She would be in heaven! Anyone reading happen to live in Brazil?!

Either way, I think she will love her party. I can’t wait to see her reaction to the Big Big Friends on our wall, and I will be sure to post photos after the party!

UPDATE: Check out how the My Big Big Friend birthday party turned out!

I’ve never heard of the show, but this birthday sounds off da hook!

What do you know? I do live in Brazil. :) My kids have watched this show a few times, but I have never seen the merchandise in the stores here. I’ll check out the link for you, when is your daughters birthday?

hi Taara,
my name is Dina. my two year old Genna is also in love with my big big friend. I have found a web site in brazil to order the stuffed toys from and my girl fiend was able to translate the web site for me. how ever they will not let us create an account with out an identity and a CNPJ/CPF. I have figured out that it is an identity number given to you by your government. is there any way you can help me with this? Genna really wants these
toys for Christmas. And I don’t want to let her down. I found the toys on toy magazine’s web site.
Thanks so much Dina

My daughter loves this show! We love that Netflix has some shows we wouldn’t have normally found. Your decorations look amazing and what a fun party! Can’t wait to see how it goes!

What a great party – not too complicated, good colors and “stuff” – great job!

Great party idea!! Would you mind sharing the contact information for the producers of My Big Big Friend? I have a 3 year old little girl who is absolutely CRAZY about this show too and would LOVE a Bongo stuffed animal. I’ve never heard her giggle as much as she does when she watches Bongo on TV. Thanks in advance !

This sound like a great idea, My son also LOVES this show and i would love for us Canadians to have some merchandise too. I wonder if the producers of this show know that My big big friend has lots and lots of fans in north america. They need to get some of the merchandise up here. Come on.
