You may select Basic Party Pack from our Cops
and Robbers Birthday Party Supplies which includes all the stuff you need for 8 guests. Or you may go with the

guests may exceed 8 you should consider Cops and Robbers Party Pack Add-On as it contains extra items for the extra
guests. You may order Cops and Robbers Party Favor Boxes separately as well.
