Shopping in Kuala Lumpur: Children's party items

Last weekend, Dear Hubby and I set off on a Very Important Mission. We headed to Toys R Us to buy Connor's birthday present. Wow. My baby is going to be TWO WHOLE YEARS old come this weekend. I said to Dear Hubby that it seemed just like yesterday we were celebrating his first birthday (Ooh, that fabulous Thomas the Tank Engine cake!).

Well this year Mummy is tired out so we're just having a quiet family do at our apartment. My parents are driving up for the event. We're just cooking some simple dishes, my little brother is buying the birthday cake and we'll just snap pics of our little boy opening his presents.

I still need to stock up on some party stuff like streamers and balloons so here's where I go to get them. The shops listed below are one-stop shops where you can get (almost) everything you need for your party.

1. Party World, Ikano
I got most of Connor's first birthday stuff here. They sell helium balloons, streamers, all sorts of party favours and goody bags. Not just for birthdays either! You can come here to get your wigs and masks for Halloween and a Santa outfit for Christmas. Party @ World is at LG, Ikano Power Centre.

2. Balloon Buzz Party Centre, Great Eastern Mall
This one's at the other end of town. It's at LG, Great Eastern Mall. You can't miss it, it's opposite the Cold Storage. They do a lot of balloons and you can order custom-made balloon bouquets here. They have pre-made goody bags at quite reasonable prices as well as assorted favours and bags so you can make your own. When we were last there, they had this rubbery, hairy gigantic black spider that scared Connor to bits. Hehe.

Hope this helps if you've been looking for these items. Maybe we'll see you in the store!
