My Peter and the Wolf in Hollywood MommyParty!

“I received free products in order to host the Peter and the Wolf in Hollywood MommyParty. The opinions expressed in my post are my own.”

I was selected to host a Peter and the Wolf in Hollywood MommyParty and I decided to combine it with my birthday since it was on June 30th!

You may remember awhile back I featured this fun, delightful Peter and the Wolf app. I simply love it! Have you downloaded it yet? Visit and you can download it too!


Peter and the Wolf in Hollywood is a revival of the classic Peter and the Wolf tale brought to you by acclaimed production company, Giants Are Small. This version brings Peter to Hollywood to meet his hippie grandfather while bringing classical music elements to life. Peter, along with all of the characters in the movie book, are narrated and brought to life by Rock n’ Roll legend, Alice Cooper. Connect with Peter and the Wolf in Hollywood on Facebook and Twitter. The hashtag is #PeterandthewolfApp.

I received a terrific party kit that included the following fun items:

  • Peter and the Wolf in Hollywood character pins
  • A copy of the official Peter and the Wolf in Hollywood soundtrack
  • Peter and the Wolf in Hollywood posters
  • Themed activities and easy-to-make recipes
  • Valuable information to share with attendees
  • $10 iTunes gift card for you or as a prize for one of your lucky guests
  • Party supplies and more!


I loved the easy-to-make recipes! My favorite was the Peter’s Pita Pizzas but my son liked the Pretzel Flutes and the Craft a “Fruit Cocktail.” I have to admit that the Pretzel Flutes were fun to make! I liked that the kids could do this all by themselves and yes, I guess they did get a little crazy with the sprinkles!
