Pack your backpack and hang with the Sunny Buddy gang

One sunny winter’s day in July, LENZO threw a fun party with our new pals from Sunny Buddy, and invited some of our favourite kids along to join in! We had a blast partying with our new friends Mia, Ava, Max, Jack and Oli, and our #FAVE Melbourne event photographer Kas Richards was there with us to capture all the fun.


Sunny Buddy brought along a bunch of exciting gifts and games for our party guests, including cupcakes, animal onesies, drink bottles, colouring in books, lockable diaries, basketballs, cartoon character backpacks, and cuddly toys!


From character bed pillows to kids round rugs, gumboots, hooded towels, and even children’s folding umbrellas, we’re in love with this new collection available from Cotton On – and we’ll definitely be popping them in our goody bags from now on.

Meet the gang and check out what we got up to below!

Spin, twirl, and twist in Mia’s Bakehouse

Meet Mia: she loves baking sweets and sharing them with her friends. she even has a quest to bake the perfect cupcake!

SHOP THE LOOK: animal cake

Castle and Cubby organised a gorgeous bakehouse for Mia, where she could invite all her friends together for cupcakes and cookies. Mia brought along some delicious sweets to share, which the kids enjoyed decorating (and how cute is that cake, baked by none other than LaManna Patisserie?!)

The decorating table was a feast in its own right, with balloons from Belle Balloons, chairs from Mini Party People, and gifts provided th Sunny Buddy.

Play basketball with Max and Ava

How cute are these Sunny Buddy giant plush toys? We predict they’ll be a huge hit among Australian kids in the coming weeks!


We then popped on our cartoon character backpacks and had a run around the basketball court with Max and Ava. Entourage Events provided the custom court decal, and Belle Balloons got creative with these basketball-balloons! We brought our A-game with us and even managed to sink some hoops.


How cute are these cartoon character backpacks for kids? Did you know that you can also personalise them with your very own initials? They’re perfect for school - BRB as we collect the set!

SHOP THE LOOK: basketball floor signage

Max loves sports and being active. He enjoys a good game of basketball, but soccer is his true passion. Ava’s favourite sport is basketball, and her great game plan proved it!


Drum Roll Please for Jack & Turn Up The Volume with Ava


Who better than Jack and Ava to help us put on a concert for our friends on a special stage made by us, with assistance from Bangin Hangins and Belle Balloons?

SHOP THE LOOK: streamers / balloon installation


Ava loves singing, acting, and musical theatre. She is a natural entertainer and loves the spotlight, where she can perform in front of her friends. Jack loves playing guitar, and writing songs for his friends. He enjoys going on adventures, which is why he took us for a roam around the Trentham Estate Veggie Gardens in our Sunny Buddy rompers.


Are you in love with these kids animal onesie pyjamas as much as we are? They’re perfect for winter… and so much fun to play around in!


Creating Art with Oli

Did you know that Oli loves to perform tricks and gymnastics on her BMX bike? And when she’s not riding, she loves to paint and draw by the bay! She gave us some of her Sunny Buddy colouring books and crayon kits, and we sat down to draw. The most fun part was when Entourage Events turned a wall into a colouring in space just for us!

SHOP THE LOOK: cake stands / bar cart

The whole gang lives on Sunny Beach, so we set up an ice cream cart with the help from Dann Event Hire, Burnt Butter, and LaManna Patisserie! Who says you can’t have ice cream in winter?!


Check out that Sunny Buddy pencil case, and figurine – it’s the perfect study pal for your little kid. Buy yours from Cotton On now. Too cute!


Here’s the most exciting part of all: did you know that you could win a trip to Tokyo simply by colouring in?


If you’re looking for kids headphones for school, then you’ll love the Sunny Buddy collection. Not only will they keep your child’s ears warm, but they’ll look so cool as they listen or sing along to their fave audio.
