    Yeh looked into inflatable world, $230 for 10 kids! That's really expensive and kids don't really spend time together.

    A maccas party is fine, we have been to heaps and kids all have fun.
    DS is turning 6 and I'm thinking lollipops playland, do people really hate play centre parties?

    For a first party you can't really beat Maccas and less parents find it daunting to go to. It's probably the most stress free option and a good way to get into the swing of parties.

    I had dd 5th party at a play centre and it worked out really well.
    Ds will most likely have his 5th at one too.
    End of the day I reckon go with what your kids like. You can't please everyone ☺

    Go with what you want and what suits your child. Macca's/Hungry Jacks parties aren't popular here, and the odd time we've had an invitation to one we politely decline the invite. But I certainly don't think people shouldn't have one there if that's what suits them and their budget.

    Really? My kids are 10, 7, 5 and 2 and none of them have ever been to a maccas party. Each of my kids has a party every year and goes to at least a dozen. I must move in a very different circle.

    I actually didn't know maccas still had birthday parties?!

    We have been to plenty of play centre and play park parties. They seem to be pretty popular here

    What about a party at home? Or at a park? You could have a theme and do games and it won't cost you as much as a play centre or McDonald's

    What do they do at a McDonald's party?

    We've never been to a maccas party either! The play grounds at them around here aren't that big, so do they provide other entertainment?

    If I wanted a budget option I'd use a park with a good playground. And play some party games too maybe
