  • Some people have them,some people don't ,it never bothered me when my son attended a party and didn't get one.
    I alwaysmade them have but I always felt like it was a way of saying thankyou for coming and the gift. Last year I even attatched premade thankyou cards to each bag and handed them out to the kids as they were picked up,lol. Saved me a mailing stamp,lol.

  • No way. No one will notice if you don't have one. I think it's an added plus, but definitely not a necessity!

  • I always had them, but, it is absolutely not a neccessity.

  • No, usually the kids remember but we do a pinata, wa la there is a goody bag.

    For the older kids no, 14. The kids play with the stuff for 1 hour then wam it is gone.

  • The last party I had for my 8 yr old I did not provide them and one of the guests wouldn't stop complaining that he didn't get one. Rude child! We had a pinata and I figured all the candy and toys from that was enough... Anyways, I am throwing my 5 yr old a party this month and I made sure he has really nice give-a-way bags.
