  8. Lego Movie and Despicable Me would be definite faves here but I’d say Frozen would be a close third. Fantastic ideas! We’ve had Thomas and friends, Mickey Mouse Clubhouse, Jake and the Neverland Pirates and Disney Princess parties, no actual movie parties. My eldest is 5 this year, I have a feeling he may want a Lego theme- Lego mad- if I hear “I Feel Awesome” once more… Great post.
