040313 CharactersWe all had at least one favorite pop culture character as a child. I was a girl obsessed with Barbie and the Little Mermaid so, naturally I wanted every Barbie or Ariel toy that came out. Today kids are still obsessed with Disney princesses, comic book heroes and their favorite TV characters. When searching for a gift for any small child it really helps to find out what character they are currently obsessed with that can give you a starting point that guarantees your gift will be loved. So, here is a list of top 7 characters:


Elmo: This sesame street character is still a favorite for toddlers and preschoolers. LOL Elmo will be sure to have your little ones entertained and giggling along with him.

Mini Mouse: With her popular TV show “Mini Mouse Bowtique” on Disney Junior, this lovable mouse still continues to be a favorite with little girls. My favorite gift pick is Minnie’s Fashion On-The-Go. Open the Magical Bowtique to change her outfits and shoes to get mini ready for the day or party.

Disney Princesses:  Snow White, Cinderella and all the classic princesses still continue to wow girls with their magic. Embrace your favorite character by playing the Disney Princess Dazzling Princess Game. Girls will love getting ready for the ball of their dreams with this fun dress up game.

Jake & the Neverland Pirates: My niece and nephew are obsessed with this show on Disney Junior and they love dressing like Jake and all his mates.  The Disney “Jake and The Neverland Pirates” Accessory Trunk is the perfect gift for any Jake fan.

Batman: For boys ages 3-5 I recommend batman rain slicker that comes with an attached cape for added super hero fun.  For older kids ages 7 and up I love LEGO Super Heroes Arctic Baan vs. Mr. Freeze.

Spiderman: Younger boys ages 2- 5 love anything they can use to dress up and be just like their favorite web slinging friend. Easily transform into spider-man with this super cool hoodie & light up web shooters. For older boys ages 7 and up I recommend Lego Spider-Man daily bugle showdown building set.
