Throwing a great themed birthday party doesn't mean you need to spend hours "DIY"ing. Great Pretenders has a fun collection of Superhero-inspired party and pretend-play items that will make throwing a fun and entertaining superhero birthday party for your little one a breeze!
Here are some of our favourite superhero party ideas by Great Pretenders and some of our favourite Pinterest finds!
Add some "POW" to your desert with our Superhero Cake Toppers! Turn any store-bought dessert like cupcakes or colourful macarons into a comic book inspired party treat! Just pop them in the top and add a candle for an added bit of fun! Shop our full collection of Superhero Party Supplies here.
Have an easy (and budget friendly) Superhero photo booth! Great Pretenders has created an easy DIY photo booth kit. It comes ready to go with your favourite superhero characters and decals. This fun kit makes for an easy party activity and the kids can take home a fun photo memento! Shop the Superhero Party collection here.
And if you're feeling extra crafty, why not try to stage your own superhero backdrop and so the kids can take home a superhero action shot of themselves as their favourite hero? We love how these "laying-down" photos shared by Sunflower Storytime. A simple fabric background and a couple cardboard boxes help create the illusion of a little superhero flying through the sky! So fun!
Here's another idea we love: A Colour-Your-Own superhero mask that can double as a party activity AND a party favour! Great Pretenders creates this fun line of Colour-Your-Own items that are definitely kid-approved! Party goers can colour their own superhero mask and dress up in it afterwards.
We also love having a backdrop that doubles as a pretend-play activity! We found this DIY cardboard box and construction paper superhero cityscape on Pinterest and we love how it looks! It makes such a great party backdrop but also would be so much fun for kids to play with during the party.
Don't forget to include a party favour like Great Pretender's inexpensive, double sided superhero masks! Kids can wear their masks during the party and take them home after to play with! Our superhero masks are double sided with classic red and blue and are silky soft and comfortable for hours of wear!

We get a lot of questions (ok some questions – come on, reach out to us more people!)- about how we come up with our costume ideas. Well Kira and the peeps working in product development have a huge influence on these steps too. We meet, hash out some concepts, sketch and colour, then cut up shiny scraps of fabric and staple them to the sketch. Then the hard work begins as she translates these ideas into the costumes we all know and love.
