Toy Story Party Ideas

Toy Story is a great theme for a birthday party for a little one who loves the movies.  The sweet bond between the child and their beloved toys is what makes these movies so fantastic!  (Ok awesome actors like Tom Hanks and Tim Allen don’t hurt either!!)

If you are looking for some amazing ideas for a Toy Story birthday party…you have come to the right place!

Toy Story Birthday Party Theme

There are two major ways to style a birthday party Toy Story style.  The first is to focus on ALL the characters. Using different characters to emphasize different foods (think slinky dog garland or Mr. Potato Head chips).

The other is to pick your favorite character and focus in on that character.  Popular ideas would be a Woody and Jessie themed cowboy party or focus on Buzz Lightyear and the adorable aliens and have an out of this world space adventure.

Regardless of which option you choose, there are PLENTY of ways to add stunning details to all aspects of your party, from food to decor.


Toy Story Party Food Ideas

My favorite part of any party theme is always the food.  I just LOVE making fun themed treats for a party. Here are some fantastic Toy Story inspired cakes, cupcakes, cookies and more…

You can also find ways to “toy story” your regular party food.  For example, Curly Fries can be “Slinky Dog Fries” or you can make pigs in a blanket and call them “Hamm’s Pigs in a Blanket”.  You can also make potato chips into Mr. Potato Head Chips and Bullseye Burgers.

It is fun Toy Story party ideas like these that rally get me excited about planning a fun and super themed party.  Just knowing all the hard work and creativity is going to be loved by the kids in attendance.  They see their favorite characters represented as food and get so happy! 

Smiles all around!


Toy Story Party Games and Activities

Once you have your menu planned out, it’s time to think about games and activities.  My favorite ideas for kid party activities is to take things they already enjoy doing (like coloring or swimming) and put a party theme twist on them.  

For example you can get hula hoops and have a Jessie’s lasso contest, where they try to toss the hula hoop onto their partner.  

You can also have a Create Your Own Forky station with sporks and glue and googly eyes and pipe cleaners.  The kids can make their own Forky toys!!

Toy Story Party Favors

Party Favors are another way to be creative with your party planning.  You can fill themed buckets or bags with Toy Story toys and trinkets.


You can also give custom cookies or costumes as favors.  Costume items are fun party favors because they can wear them during the party and then take them home after, so it’s an activity/favor hybrid.

Toy Story Party Invitations

Before you can party, you have to invite your guests.  When it comes to choosing the right invitations, there are two main options:

Option #1: Buy fill-in invitations.  This is an easy option that only requires you to fill out the invites.  If you are throwing a party for an older child, they can fill the invites out themselves.  

Fortunately, you can download these adorable fill-in invitations from  Disney Family.

Option #2: Have a custom invitation made that you can print and distribute. So I’m partial to this option, since I do in fact design printables for parties.  

I think a custom invite is fun and saving time (although printing them can be more expensive than option 1).  This would be my choice for a custom invite from CutePixels to match this design. It’s similar in vibe and super cute.
