Barney being famously purple, calls for this bright eye-catching color to be very prominent in the icing of the cake. But the green of Baby Bop, the yellow of B.J and the orange of Riff, Barney’s friends on the show can also be used in the color scheme as they are all complementary to each other. If you are carrying through the Barney theme for the entire party then using these colors will make sure that the cake will match the color scheme of your other party supplies as well. Use simple happy shapes like bubbles and flowers to decorate the cake or use Barney cake toppers.

Another way to go with your Barney cake is to make it in the shape of the lovable dinosaur himself. To do this print out a picture of Barney and place it on a rectangular sheet cake. Then simply cut along the outline of Barney and finish out by coloring in the body and facial features with icing.

Lots of kids grew up on Barney and his friends, BJ, Baby Bop and Riff and even today episodes of Barney are still very popular amongst the kids.

Barney has been around since the early nineties and his big purple image hasn’t changed much, so you’ll have an easy time recognizing him on themed napkins, cups, and plates. Take the Barney theme of your party a step further and make use of his purple and green colors to help decorate your party. A long metallic purple column of streamers topped with purple stars works well for the party and really makes a statement. You can blow up some purple and green balloons and leave them lying around the party area or hanging from the walls. These can even be used in funparty games.

You can fill up green gift bags with lots of goodies and toys for the kids at the party too. Barney blowouts are fun noisemakers that kids love to play with, just make sure you want that much noise at your party when you hand them out in the loot bags. There are even plastic loot bags with images of Barney the dinosaur himself printed on them. Anything Barney related will be lots of fun at this party. You can also put small trinkets like pens and pencils or for the preschool set, crayons and coloring books into the bags.

You can blend the Barney theme a little bit with other themes if you are having trouble finding enough materials. There are lots of dinosaur related materials out there. The kids might get a kick out of playing with a dinosaur piñata.

The history of the Barney show has been a long one. Created in 1987 by a woman named Sheryl Leach the program began as a series of home created videos. These videos created by the team Sheryl put together came out with videos that were educational and appealing to children. The original title of the show was Barney and the Backyard game. This series also featured the star known as Sandy Duncan in the first original three videos. It was later on in the series that Barney was joined by BJ, Riff and Baby Bop.

Most people are amazed at the history behind many of the shows from the present and past. Like others before them the times of past and the recordings are often as interesting now as they were many years ago. For this reason, fans of the show have held strong and their popularity has continued to grow. Hailing from Texas Sheryl Leach found that the original videos were not very popular outside the reach of her own state. However, once the Public Broadcasting Service agreed to pick up the show a timely revamp was already prepared and the show topped the charts in daytime television for children who were commonly home those hours, due to not being of school age as of yet.

The PBS series was produced by Lyrick Studios and for many years into this stage of its history the show was taped within ColorDynamics in Allen Texas. However, shortly after it left Allen it moved to the Studios in Dallas. This show since 2006 has been produced by WNET. Sheryl Leach did leave her show in 2002 after the entertainment studio that had been serving the show for so long bought out Lyrick Studios. Barney still is a very popular childrens show that has had positive effects on pre school age children.
