Superhero Comics Party Supplies – The Options
You may select Basic Party Pack from our Superhero Comics Party Supplies which includes all the stuff you need for 8 guests. Or you may go with the Deluxe Party Pack from our Superhero Comics Party Supplies that has much more items than the Superhero Comics Basic Pack. The Superhero Comics deluxe pack is also for 8 guests. If you need favor boxes as well, I would suggest you to choose the combination of Deluxe Party Pack & 8 Favor Boxes from our Superhero Comics Party Supplies as it would cost you much more if you purchase them separately. If you think that the number of guests may exceed 8 you should consider Superhero Comics Party Pack Add-On as it contains extra items for the extra guests. You may order Superhero Comics Party Favor Boxes separately as well.
I’ve personally used Superhero Comics Party Supplies for my kid’s birthday and through my personal experience I would recommend it to all Superhero Comics lover kids.
