With wicked, retracting claws and an immune system like no other, it’s no wonder that so many kids love Wolverine. If your children count themselves among the superhero’s legion of fans, you may want to consider throwing them a Wolverine themed party this year. Based on my experience, there are several different party favor options that would work with such a topic. Here’s a cursory look at a few of them:
Depending on your budget, you may want to consider giving the kids Wolverine Wristbands. The wristbands are typically made from rubber and either feature Wolverine’s head or the word “Wolverine” emblazoned in blue. Some of the wristbands are slip-ons. Others are secured to the wearer’s wrist with a snap. Each version of the wristband is considered to be licensed, Marvel Comics’ products. They tend to sell for $7 apiece through comic book shops and related retailers.
In my opinion, Wolverine Keychains also make great gifts for kids. The older children may use the keychains to hold house keys whereas the younger kids may clip them to their backpacks. The Wolverine Keychain that I am most familiar with is made of pewter. It is 2 inches wide, 2.5 inches tall and retails for $6 through comic book stores and party supply shops. Of course there are other Wolverine Keychains on the market as well. Some feature Wolverine’s head. Others feature his entire body. The full-body keychains usually retail for $20 each.
Would you rather give your guests an edible, Wolverine themed gift? If so, you may want to consider investing in a Nordic Ware Marvel Cakelet Pan. It is available for purchase through the Williams-Sonoma website. The cakelet pan is capable of producing Wolverine’s head in cake, chocolate or cookie form. The cakelet pans usually sell for $40 each and also feature the heads of Captain America, Iron Man, Spider-Man, Thor and the Incredible Hulk. Once the treats are made, I’d suggest placing them inside either a blue or yellow bakery window box. A great place to find bakery boxes and colorful cupcake wrappers is the Papermart website.
Wolverine Stickers, Pencil Toppers and Pencils
In my experience, Wolverine themed school supplies also work well as party favors. Items to consider purchasing are Wolverine Pencil Toppers and stickers. Each one is likely to lighten your wallet by about $4. The pencil toppers tend to feature Wolverine’s full body and stand roughly 1 inch tall. You can generally purchase both the stickers and pencil toppers through specialty retailers and comic book shops.
