It's Never Too Early To Look!

Although Halloween is still five months away, it's never to early to start looking around and getting some ideas for what your children might like to be this year.  As parents, we all know that of course your child will have changed his/her mind at least a dozen times before the Halloween season is even upon us, but it's still nice to throw some ideas out to them in advance. Your best bet with toddler's to grade school-aged children is usually Disney or Nickelodeon characters. Believe me, you won't find a child out there that hasn't seen a Disney or Nickelodeon show and they usually know every character by heart.  And as usual there's always a blockbuster summer movie coming out that will peak your child's interest, there always is.  If you're like me, I find it intersting to see what the National Retail Federation reports as their "top 10 children's costumes" every year.  Here's the list of what was most popular among children in 2007:
  1. Princess
  2. Spider-Man
  3. Pirate
  4. Witch
  5. Fairy
  6. Disney Princess
  7. Star Wars Character
  8. Pumpkin
  9. Ghost
  10. Power Ranger
So start talking to your children now and see what kind of costume they're interested in for this Halloween season.  Since kids love to actually see what the costumes look like, let them check out the costumes here at Halloween Express.  I'm sure they'll find something they love!
