This interactive punch wall looks just like a strip of candy buttons. It borrows a page from The Price Is Right, where contestants have been playing Punch A Bunch since the 1970s, only Maddie's guests played for favors instead of cash prizes.

The punch wall was part of Maddie's ninth birthday party, and the candy button colors tied in perfectly with her sweets-themed party. It served triple duty as decor, activity station and favor depot. Other activities at Maddie's fête included a gumball obstacle course, lifesaver pass and pixie stick drop.
