PJ Masks AmbassadorAs of this writing, National Superhero Day (April 28, 2017) is fast-approaching, and that makes for a great time to have a SUPER party. Parties don't need to be reserved just for birthdays, and sometimes it's fun to get the little ones and their friends together for an unexpected gathering. In fact, sometimes we even have parties here at Rock Father HQ that are family-only, but still a fun way to turn an ordinary day or night into something extraordinary... or super. One of our favorite themes here is PJ Masks, and after being requested by parents for over a year, official PJ Masks party supplies are now available at Party City! Paired with PJ Masks free printables from the official site and toys from Just Play, you can easily create a memorable PJ Masks Party for National Superhero Day, birthdays or any day!

Tips for a PJ Masks Party so awesome, Romeo will want to crash it!

  • Inspiration: Visit the "Grown-ups" section of the PJ Masks website for free printables and more.
  • Free Printables: Be sure to download the Superhero Day "Hero Celebration Kit." This includes Invitations and Thank You Cards, Decorations (Bunting & Posters), Costume Help (Amulets & Masks), Activity Sheets/Printables (Superhero Name Generator, Coloring Pages, Dot-to-Dot, Maze, Superhero Top Tips and an official Hero Certificate)
  • Food: Cupcakes are always a big hit. Buy (or make) them in red, blue and green, then top them with homemade decor. We made these by attaching printed shapes to toothpicks using magic tape...


  • Costumes: From heroes like Owlette, Gekko and Catboy, to villains like Romeo, Luna Girl and the Night Ninja, there's some fun dress-up and role-play items to help get the kids fully into character!


  • Party Supplies: Visit Party City for a full assortment of partyware, including plates, napkins, cups, gift bags, balloons and more!
  • Soundtrack: PJ Masks "Here We Come" is the just-released official soundtrack! This 10-track collection is perfect for setting a heroic mood, and can be purchased/downloaded from Amazon & iTunes, or streamed via Spotify.


  • Toys: Just Play's complete assortment of PJ Masks toys are now available at retailers everywhere. From the HQ Playset to the all-new Deluxe Vehicles (Owl Glider, Cat-Car, Gekko-Mobile), you can create the perfect world for imaginative play.

Bonus Tip: Use the Just Play Collectible Figure set (or blind bag figures) as cake toppers!
