When my three year old daughter, Niamh, asked for a Gollum themed party, I was torn. On one hand, I think that a Gollum party would be awesome and funny. On the other hand, I didn't want to terrify all the other little four-year-olds at the party. It took some finesse and convincing (and maybe a wee bit of bribery), but I eventually convinced my daughter that Hobbits more generally would be a great party. Happily, she eventually agreed!
