How about one of those indoor playgrounds, such as http://kidsfuncity.ca
Most of them have a toddler section. The best is you go there ahead of time and ask to see what they have to offer/a tour. That way you know, if it is appropriate for your child.

Niagara Regions there's something called Zippy Zoom, I'm sure your area would have something similar around here. Alas quick google search shows there is: planetfun, giggles indoor playland, just for fun party and play centre. There's even lists devoted to this with a quick google search..

My sis just does a party at the house, pizza, wings, little guys invite all their friends from day car. It's fun and inexpensive.

How many people are you looking to have? There are quite a few venues in Scarborough but you gotta check asap as some prime days like Saturday are usually booked way in advanced.

Here's a list from the City of Toronto's website: https://www.toronto.ca/data/parks/prd/f ... index.html

We had my sons 1st bday at a gymnasium in Pickering. It was affordable at like $400+ from 3-8pm. We had a huge party(200+ guests) hence we needed the gymnasium. We had to do it on a Sunday as we booked about 2 weeks prior to the party. If we had booked earlier we would have had more options.

100% indoor playground.

Did it at 2 and 3 years. Been to so many this past year and everyone at this age is doing it in a play based environment.

Good ones are if you have the place to yourself... with a toddler zone. Parents can relax somewhat.

I don't know about Scarborough, but our local Early Years Centre was available for rent. It was very reasonably priced and ideal for 2 year olds.

I'm dying to know. Why such a huge party for a one-year old's birthday party? Is it specific to your culture or do you just like big parties :)

Without going too deep into our situation. It's a bit of culture and a bit of complication. My son is technically my nephew. My sister cannot take care of him. We are in the process of adopting him, currently doing kinship via CAS. He's been in our care for around 5-6months now.

The big party was to welcome him to our family and friends. My wife has a huge family. We have many friends. Hence 200+ people. Because the situation is complicated it was good venue for us to introduce him to our fam and friends without going into deep explanations as to why we all of a sudden have a baby. Aside from that, yes our culture tends to celebrate when possible, the bigger the better! That and my MIL caters food, so that was an expense we didn't have to worry about.

Their party room has a TV where the kids will be entertained by the rotisserie channel, watching spinning chickens getting roasted 24/7
I swear to drunk I'm not God 😝
