Ultimate playhouse activity

What is the Ultimate Playhouse creation activity?

Using the Party Pack box, along with any additional everyday objects around the house like boxes and paper towel rolls, parents and their preschoolers can create simple playhouses and decorate them with the crayons and decorative tape included in the Party Pack.

Facebook integration

What if I don’t have a Facebook account?

No problem! You don’t need a Facebook account to participate in the Julius Jr. “This Box Rocks” House Party. You just need your House Party sign-in information in order to access all the great stuff going on, whether you’re on houseparty.com or on the Julius Jr. Facebook application for the party.

Will I be able to invite people through Facebook?

Even though the houseparty.com site is showing inside a tab on the Julius Jr. Facebook page, you can’t invite friends and family through Facebook with a Facebook Event. For your Party Page to reflect your guests, you must still use the House Party invitation tool. You can also create a secret RSVP page with a URL to include in a Facebook Event or personal email if you want to show off your social savvy. If you still want to create a Facebook Event or event on another website, please follow the steps below so we can see all the action on your Party Page.

To invite guests you may not have an email address for, or to invite guests on another website, you can share an RSVP page with a unique and secret URL and send it to your guests through any means you'd like. This link is available in the host tools on the right side of your Party Page. Please be sure to only send this link to people you’d like to attend your House Party. We advise against posting it publicly. The RSVP page includes all of your party details, including your address — pretty much everything that would appear on any invitation. Here, you also have the option to disable this link.

Will I still use the House Party tools? Where do I apply?

Yes! You still can (and need to) use the House Party tools to apply to the Julius Jr. “This Box Rocks” House Party, show us how much you want to host and invite your guests if you’re selected to host. You can do this both from the Julius Jr. Facebook page and houseparty.com.

If I do something on Julius Jr. “This Box Rocks” House Party application on the Julius Jr. Facebook page, like post a photo, do I also have to post it to houseparty.com?

No! You don’t have to do any action twice. If you post a conversation or upload a photo on the Julius Jr. “This Box Rocks” House Party application of the Julius Jr. Facebook page, for example, it’ll appear on houseparty.com, and vice versa. They’re actually the same page, just visible in two locations. Keep in mind that all of the information is stored at houseparty.com, though — you’re not uploading anything to your Facebook account.

I’d rather manage my conversations, photos and videos on houseparty.com. Can I do this?

Yes! You can absolutely choose to participate on houseparty.com instead of the Julius Jr. “This Box Rocks” House Party application on the Julius Jr. Facebook page.

If I’m selected, how do I claim a host spot? Where should I check?

Host selection will still happen the same way — if you’re selected to be in the running for a host spot, you’ll receive an email and you’ll notice the change if you’re signed in on the main party tab on the Julius Jr. Facebook page. At that point, you’ll need to invite your guests to claim your host spot. You can do this either from Facebook.com/juliusjrandfriends or houseparty.com.

I have a question. Who do I talk to?

Privacy & Facebook

Are you sharing my information with Facebook?

Absolutely not. As always, your information is protected. Please feel free to review our privacy policy and terms and conditions. Think about the Facebook tab as a window to the houseparty.com site — with all of the information stored here at House Party, though you can also view it through the Julius Jr. “This Box Rocks” House Party application. Whether you connect your Facebook account to your House Party account is up to you (meaning using Facebook Connect to sign into House Party).

Of course, you can choose to share photos, Announcements and other House Party content to your Facebook friends by clicking “Share,” but nothing is shared with your Facebook friends automatically.

Will my photos on houseparty.com be visible on the Julius Jr. Facebook page?

Yes. All of the Julius Jr. “This Box Rocks” House Party Announcements, Photos and Videos will be accessible from a tab on the Julius Jr. Facebook page. Think about the Facebook tab as a window to the houseparty.com site — with all of the information stored here at House Party, but also viewable from Facebook.

Will you automatically post anything to my Facebook account?

Nope! You still have full control of the sharing tools that you’re familiar with on houseparty.com. You can choose whether or not you’d like to connect your Facebook or other social network accounts to your House Party account, and we can’t and won’t post anything automatically.

Eligibility

Is this House Party available to residents outside of the United States?

Unfortunately, no. The Julius Jr. “This Box Rocks” House Party (and most other House Parties) is only available to residents of the United States. Please be sure that your House Party account information is up-to-date, and that you complete your application honestly and thoroughly.
