Viral Jolly baby celebrates first birthday with fun Jollibee Kids Party

(Press Release)

Generations of Filipinos around the country have experienced the special and joyful kind of celebration brought by a Jollibee Kids Party (JKP). For many, a Jollibee Kids Party is a core memory, an essential milestone of their childhood spent with family and friends on their big day.

While the pandemic put a pause on the JKP for a few years, it returns this year to once again share the joy with kids and kids-at-heart! And to mark the comeback of this one-of-a-kind celebration, a special first birthday JKP was held for a young Jollibee fan named baby Kally Grae Formarejo.

A Jolli-themed celebration

Over the past year, Kally Grae has received buzz on social media thanks to the viral photos of her wearing different Jollibee-themed costumes every month which were designed by her parents, Noriel and Jace Formarejo. Each month’s costume represents a classic favorite, such as the Jolly Crispy Fries, Jolly Spaghetti, Champ, Yumburger, and Chickenjoy.

Kally Grae’s parents decided to celebrate each month with these DIY costumes because Jollibee products are their shared favorites as a couple. Mommy Jace even shared that she constantly craved her Jollibee comfort meals while she was pregnant.

With the Formarejo family documenting these adorable milestones, they are able to share the joy of Jollibee with the rest of the world. And to give back to the family, Jollibee gifted Kally Grae with her own Jollitown Theme Park Jollibee Kids Party for her first birthday.

The celebration was a truly special one, with Kally Grae dressed up in her own Jollibee costume. At the store was a photo gallery of her previous looks for every monthly milestone, including the most recent one for her 1st birthday—a photo of her standing inside a giant Chickenjoy bucket.

The party team made sure that Kally Grae, her parents, and guests had a joyful and memorable afternoon. She was sung a Jolly birthday song, treated to an energetic dance number, and she also received a cute gift personally handed to her by Jollibee—a JKP exclusive Jollibee Lamp. Friends and family had a great time joining in the fun with exciting programs and prizes and they also received special loot bags to bring home.

Of course, no Jollibee birthday party is complete without everyone’s favorite meals. Guests feasted on Jolly Crispy Fries; the cheesiest, meatiest, sweet-sarap Jolly Spaghetti; Chocolate Sundae Twirl; and the crispylicious and juicylicious Chickenjoy.  Apart from Jollibee, the party also got a special surprise from Hetty, Twirlie, Popo, and Yum, who all dropped by to celebrate with Kally Grae and her guests.

This awesome celebration shows how families all over the country can give their children the gift of a memorable and special kind of joy with the Jollibee Kids Party.

“On behalf of the team, I would like to express our biggest thanks to Kally Grae’s family for making Jollibee a part of their long-lasting memories—may this Jollibee Kids Party be the first of many life occasions that you celebrate with us,” said Kat Facun, Brand Manager of Jollibee Kids Marketing.
