This month, LEGO Bruce Wayne will suit up, hop in the bat-mobile, and head out to save Gotham as LEGO Batman! He’ll be joined in his crime-fighting adventures and billionaire playboy antics by Batgirl and Robin, and as always, they’ll try to foil the terrifying plans of the Joker and his lovely sidekick, Harley Quinn. It’s good against evil, as it’s always been, and this time LEGO Batman will have to train Robin to help him become a worthy sidekick.

But, it’s a difficult job being Batman, especially when he’s the only person who’s ever had any good ideas ever (according to him)! We’ll join him as Robin and Batgirl try to aid him in the fight against his biggest adversary. But, while they’re fighting the Joker and Harley, you’ll be busy in the theater seats, cheering on the bat-team the whole way. And since we’re all rooting for Batman, why not celebrate their eventual victory by throwing a party?

When you have your next LEGO Batman-themed party, make sure you have something nice to put your party favors in! These DIY favor boxes emulate everyone’s favorite bat-characters from the movie, and they hold so many treats inside! Make sure your Gothamite guests have something cool to hold their treats and leave the party with. This way, they can even get their favorite character!
