Bringing the pandamonium with us

standard June 14, 2008 5 responses

Mamma? After my nap we’re going to the Panda Kanga party?”
“Yes, we’re going to the Kung Fu Panda party.”

C and I had this exchange about a million times in the last three days. She wanted details about the party: what were we going to do? who was going to be there? were we going to eat there? was it going to be scary?

I went over all the details again and again, secure in the knowledge that there would be no man in a giant panda suit to ruin the day. After all, none of the other launch parties have sported a “real” panda. In fact, party goers complained that they had to take pictures in front of a cardboard cut out. Had that been our case it would have suited us perfectly. C has a little costume phobia, one I keep hoping she’ll outgrow, but one she clearly hasn’t shaken yet.

We pulled up in front of the “Panda Kanga” party and M came out to help me unload the kids.
“Uh… there’s a really big panda in there,” he hissed at me.
“Yeah. A cardboard one, right?”
“Uh. No. A real one. Well not real, a costume, but it’s really big.” I shot him a panicked look too late. C’s excellent ears had picked up everything and she was instantly in complete hysteria mode.
NOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO. No panda! NOOOOOOOOOOOOO. I wanna go home! I wanna go home! I don’t want to go to the kanga panda party. I wanna go home NOW!”
I talked calmly, trying to get her to see reason. I explained the panda wasn’t real, it was just a costume. I told her that I’d hold her tight and keep her safe. I promised I wouldn’t let anything bad happen. And lastly I appealed to her sense of duty.
“Baby. Mommy has to go to this party, even if it’s just for a few minutes. OK.”
She calmed down for a second and I thought I had her convinced, until she sobbed and said “Mommy? Can you go in by yourself?”
I laughed and got out of the car. I pulled her out of her carseat and I held her tight and promised I wouldn’t put her down until she was ready. She clung to me like a barnacle and cried all the way into the building.

She did calm down like I knew she would. Come on, I’m not a monster. We played with chopsticks and we ate some chicken strips and cookies. We hid from the really big panda and we schmoozed a little. And when the panda took a bio break we all relaxed even more. But then the panda came back and the hysterics started up again so we decided to call it a night, gathered our goody bag, and went home, where we spent the evening discussing the big panda and whether or not he could fit through C’s window. Yeah, not so much.

The party might not have been a hit for us, but I have to give some serious kudos to an organization that throws parties for bloggers and then reads what they have to say about the events. People complained about the cardboard pandas and they brought out the real deal. People whined about less than exciting grab bags and they stepped it up by adding a few more goodies. Nicely done Hewlett-Packard.

Speaking of grab bags, I have 5 fun little activity CDs to give out. They have music videos, photo/print projects, frames and cards, etc. All based on the Kung Fu Panda movie obviously. If you’re interested just leave a comment or shoot me an email and I’ll send one your way. But don’t worry. I won’t tell the great big panda where you live. Your windows might be bigger than Cs.

  • Aw, I feel for you and C! I saw you guys briefly, just passing through here and there. My son also hid from the giant panda. Luckily there was video game / kung fu heaven over on the other side of the room, so that’s where he spent more of this time. My girls LOVED the panda – tickling him, etc. So we had a 66/33 split. We can’t wait to see the movie. And the arts and crafts stuff we brought home should be really fun too.

    No french doors in our bedrooms, so we should be safe from pandas too!

  • Aww, sorry your little one was scared. I was amazed my kids took a phcture, but I did have to call in dad. One is fascinated but afraid, the other is continually dissapointed that these characters “are always just a person in a costume” even if his brother insisted it was real 🙂

  • Sorry C was scared! My boys would have been scared too! SOunds like a great party though. I would love one of the activity cds if you still have any. My B would go crazy for it. He lurves the panda (as long as it is little!).

  • TC probably would have been scared too. I would love one of the cd’s. You can e-mail me at butterflylady97@yahoo.com.

    I am also on Cafe Mom!

  • Ya…I guess we’re passed that stage. Now, the only reaction I can get out of my oldest is when I told him his space ship design would scare Darth Vader so much he’d probably soil his kilt. (And he’s not even a teener yet! Yikes. *lol*)
