My little girl will be 3 soon and I'm wondering what sort of small party favor to get. I know how much I hate looking after tiny, junky toys - they get everywhere, break easily, and there are fits when it's time to throw the sad, broken thing out. But candy and food isn't much better.
So... experienced birthday party throwing mommies... what are favorite and least favorite things to see come home with your child?

I dislike the small junky toys and candy as well...send home some bubbles or sidewalk chalk or at least something the child can use. One year we had a construction theme b-day and I sent home tape measures in the goodly bag because I knew the kids would be learning to measure things in school the next year. I also sent home paint brushes, safety goggles, carpenters pencils, and a cup shaped like a orange construction road cone. This year theme racing, sent home small racing duffel bags pencils w/ checkered flags, racing tattoos, Sm racing notebooks , racing themed jelly bracelets and a checkered flag

I like little cute soaps (kids love to wash their hands with these), stickers to match the party theme (as this can be used to decorate lunch bags). Hugs and Kisses candy with a note that says hugs and kisses and thanks for coming to my party. Mini-bubbles, pencils.
