Yes, they still love Disney Princesses.  My niece definitely did/does. 

As for the 2.5 year old, I would say it depends on the candy.  Things they have to suck on could be a choking hazard.  Also, if you give it to him, he’ll probably want to open it just then.  You might not want a sugar-crazed kid at the reception.  I’d go with a toy that will entertain him until the party is over.  Ask his mom what he is into.  My nephew his age loves Thomas trains and Caillou videos.  But if you aren’t worried, then go for it.

I still love Disney Princesses and I’m 21! I would say I would have been happy with them up until age 10 or so…so I’m sure you’re fine there.

I would also ask the mom of the 2.5 year old what he likes.  My nephew was into stuff from the movie Cars and Spiderman.

Ask their mom first. I wouldn’t want to hand out candy only to see mom take it away. If it’s a no, maybe a small bag with a variety of goodies…I know I’ve seen cookies frosted with characters on them.

I agree, check with the mom. Maybe fruit snacks and Goldfish would be a better option.

The good thing about 2.5 year olds is they love ANYTHING…literally, anything new is awesome in their eyes (I babysit for a 2.5 year old, which is how I know)…They can have candy, although I would stay away from small sucking candies but anything else is fine…I’m sure he’d love any type of superhero stuff, like spiderman or any type of cartoon thing, like diego or backyardigans…

Cars/Trucks/Bulldozers etc are always appreciated  (at least by the 2-3 y/o boys I’ve babysat!)  I agree to check with the mom about candy.

Disney Princesses (and Hannah Montana, lol) are still very popular for girls, I think until they hit 8 y/o or so.

I would check with mom before getting candy for the little one.  You might end up with a totally crabby 2.5 year old hopped up on sugar if his parents don’t often give him candy.  However, keep ini mind that if you plan on giving your flower girl candy, you probably shouldn’t give one child candy and something else to the other.

I’d go with some sort of toy that will keep them occupied during the reception.  Thomas the Train is good or cars, trucks or blocks.

As a Pediatrics Nurse, No, its too young to give candy but in this day and age, parents reward unnecessarily with candy. I would ask the Mom and see what she says.

Yeah ask the parent… my niece (age 4) doesnt even like certain kinds of candy!

Another cute idea I’ve seen is getting build-a-bears made for the FG and RB … dressing the bears like a bride and a groom.

Our 2 year old nephew loves everything, but i agree with the types of candies. It’s a special occassion, after all. Granted, our nephew loves it all, but he would LOOOVE his own personal mini ring-bearer cake. Cake his his favorite and it’s so cute when he smooshes it everywhere. So a mini cake is an idea if you want to go with junk food. They also love toys at that age, but honestly, they probably have soooo much already. at least our nephew does. His eyes just light up when he sees junk food

Definitely no hard candy. Can you maybe ask the parents and still be able to surprise the little boy? Different parents allow different things. My boys pretty much ate anything because of my mom but I was much more cautious. LOL

I think 6 yr olds are definitely still in to princess stuff. I dont’ have any girls, but friends that do and they range from 5 – 10 and are all still in to that stuff – although the 10 yr old is more in to stuff like hanana montana.
