Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles Party Supplies – The Background
Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles Party Supplies are based on Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles (also known as Ninja Turtles or TMNT), a fictional team of four turtles. These teenage anthropomorphic turtles are well trained in the art of ninjutsu. They have been trained by sensei, an anthropomorphic rat. They live in the storm sewers of New York City. Although they are isolated from the society, they battle invading aliens, overlords and petty criminals.
The characters initially appeared in comic books. Later they were licensed for cartoons, films, toys, video games and other merchandise. During the 1980s and 1990s, Ninja Turtles franchise was at its peak of popularity and was a worldwide success.
TMNT was created by Kevin Eastman and Peter Laird. They were first seen in 1984 in a comic book published by Mirage Studios in Dover, New Hampshire. The concept was born during a brainstorming session between Kevin Eastman and Peter Laird when Kevin created a humorous sketch. Both were quite impressed with the concept and wanted to publish a comic book. But they had no money to do so. So, they used the money they got from their tax refund and took a loan from Kevin’s uncle and self-published a comic.
At that time (1980s), there were four comics that were most popular Frank Miller’s Ronin, Dave Sim’s Cerebus, and Marvel Comics’ Daredevil and New Mutants. The comic created by the young artists was a parody of these four comics. The comic was hit and since then it has been published by various comic book companies in different incarnations.

Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles Party Supplies – The Options
You may select Basic Party Pack from our Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles Party Supplies which includes all the stuff you need for 8 guests. Or you may go with the Deluxe Party Pack from our Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles Party Supplies that has much more items than the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles Basic Pack. The Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles 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 Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles 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 Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles Party Pack Add-On as it contains extra items for the extra guests. You may order Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles Party Favor Boxes separately as well.
I’ve personally used Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles Party Supplies for my kid’s birthday and through my personal experience I would recommend it to all Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles fans.
