Happy birthday Magnus! Actress Kristy Swanson and Olympic skater husband Lloyd Eisler’s son turned 4 on Feb. 16 and the family celebrated Saturday with 45 guests at a birthday bash at Tales in Los Angeles.

“It was blast, a lot of fun,” says Swanson, who treated 15 of her son’s pals to a “Popeye goes to the circus” theme party.

Munching on gluten-free snacks from Dr. Lucy’s Cookies and Kaia Foods, the kids had the run of the new “creative adventure land” and enjoyed playing on Tales’ jumping pillow, the only one in Los Angles.

The children made tattoos, played dress up with hats and wigs, jumped around on the pillow bounce, and crafted clown masks during the two-hour affair.

Magnus took a turn singing karaoke — “He took the microphone and announced, ‘It’s my birthday,'” she says, laughing. Lunch included Oak Fire Pizza and the birthday boy shared circus-themed cupcakes shaped like elephants and lions and baked by Sugar Babies Cupcakery. “It seems like it was elaborate but it wasn’t,” says Swanson, who stars in a Sci Fi movie channel later this summer called Swamp Shark. “Just a lot of fun things going on.”

Attending were Kristy’s buddy, 90210‘s Maeve Quinlan, and little Taylor Groothuis, who played Swanson’s on screen daughter in the movie, What If... “I was her age when I started acting and now I’m the mom and my TV daughters are coming to my kid’s party,” says Swanson, who wore an Eva Varro dress and jewelry by Stella and Dot. “I love it.”
