We didn't have a "theme" but did dinosaur tails for the kids. Dinosaurs are awesome, you can get a ton of stuff that is not a TV character for that.

Re: I need a good 2nd birthday theme

Favorite color? Favorite animal? Favorite activity? Doesn't need to be anything fancy. My daughter liked Tinkerbell, so I made her a green and purple cake with leaves and flowers, and bought green and purple plates/cups. Nobody assumed Tinkerbell, but it was nice to start with that, to have a good color combo to use.

We did "bouncing boy" for my son's first... we decorated with reds/yellows/blues... made cheap paper chains like in grade school. Had a bounce house (we own it). Had balloon punching balls, bouncy balls, and slinky's...

We did construction trucks because they were repaving a road near us for the summer before his birthday. Did you know you could get an almost 2 year old to sit down for over an hour if he is watching trucks? Lots of easy things to use without TV stuff.

Re: I need a good 2nd birthday theme

For my nephews' second b-day we did Santa (Dec birthday) / Apple juice. They are twins, and all that was requested for birthday gifts was apple juice. It was cute. The cake was a juice box.

Oh, and I always have to suggest farm animals themes. I love farm animals.
