Parents will really like the idea of buying these in as take home gifts for their children’s friends. The idea is that the gesture offers a treat and an activity all in one and is excellent value for money. It eliminates the work involved in having to shop and make up party bags. These occasions can be extremely busy anyway and the work is done for you. In regard to parents of those who receive them as take home gifts, well, they will be happy with this as an alternative, because, with no bag, there is no cause to remove sweets that contain things they do not allow their children as a rule. It is questionable whether or not the boys and girls themselves will be equally impressed with their gift. There may be the odd child who pooh-poohs the idea, having being robbed of the excitement of seeing what’s inside their bag. Nevertheless the majority of children will appreciate them and will enjoy the more prolonged enjoyment the gift offers.
