Kids love to decorate the tree come Christmastime; however they are not hip to the idea of always using those old ornaments that have been passed down from generation to generation. It is time to update your ornament collection with a couple (perhaps more) great kid Christmas ornaments and I have five stores that you will have no problem purchasing one from!
The Disney Store / www.disneystore.com
The name says it all, doesn’t it? This is such a great place to get ornaments for the children because most kids do love those Disney characters. I picked this store because they have a wide range of ornaments and not just Mickey Mouse or Minnie Mouse. Some of their great ornaments offer Jiminy Cricket, Tinker Bell, Buzz Lightyear, Eeyore and the list goes on. They come in character shapes, glass balls, plates and so much more. There are a numbered few of ornaments where you can have them personalized with a certain name on it, or even the year if this is a ornament for a gift or a keepsake. There is even a couple pages on ornament sets that will include all the characters from a certain storyline. One of my favorite ornaments from the Disney store is the Green Glass Santa Mickey Mouse Holiday Ornament. It is a round glass Christmas ball with two balls on top of it to look like Mickey Mouse ears and then Mickey Mouse, dressed up in a Santa costume is laying in between those ears. It is only $14.95 which is the average cost for most of the ornaments at this store. You can find some cheaper and yes, of course there are some more expensive, especially if you are going to get an ornament set or a storybook set. What is great though, is if you spend over $89 you will only have to pay $5 for shipping, so pick up other items at the same time to cut down on your cost! They do have a great selection of kids Christmas decor as well!
Toys R’ Us / www.toysrus.com
Yes, this store sells more then just toys, it also sells Christmas ornaments, decor and everything else that goes along with Christmas and they have a huge selection of ornaments that are made just for kids! If you have a child that is into sports, then their line of sports ornaments will surely make you happy. From professional and college sports I am sure you will find the team your child is interested in. Does your little girl like the Bratz characters? Toys R’ Us has a great miniature Bratz ornament set that includes five different ornaments at a low price of $11.99. The offer some other great characters that you will not find anywhere else like Carebears, M&M’s, Sesame Street and the Grinch! Most of their items are all priced under $15.00.
The Incredible Christmas Place / www.thechristmasplace.com
Located in Pigeon Forge, Tennessee, this store is one of the best I have ever seen. I absolutely love how it is layed out. It is like walking into Santa’s house, if you can only imagine what Santa’s house looks like. So of course with that in mind, who loves kids better then Santa, right? This store has so many kids ornaments that you will be amazed at their selection. Ornaments you will not find anywhere else but this store! One of my favorites is the Ninja Turtle ornaments (of course, because I have a boy!) and there are four different Ninja Turtles that are posed differently holding different items like a pizza slice, Santa’s bag, and a candy cane. They only cost $4.99 each! Other kid character ornaments they offer are, Snoopy, Elmo, Rudolph, Raggedy Ann & Andy, Tom & Jerry and even the Flintstones. They are pretty reasonable when it comes to pricing, some are as cheap as $4.99 however there will always be an occasional $9.99 and perhaps more here and there. However, when it comes to this store we are not looking at the price but the quality in their ornaments. They are made with the up most care and each child you buy these for will truly enjoy them for years to come. This store also has free shipping on purchases made over $75, and if you can’t make it to the Smokey Mountains before Christmas this year, shopping on line is the next best thing!
The Ornament Shop / www.theornamentshop.com
Kids not only love character ornaments, they also love ornaments that deal with certain themes. This website is all about kids ornaments that deal with special events in a child’s life. With over 2000 different ornaments on hand, the Ornament Shop offers ornaments that are categorized into kids birthdays, scouts, teens, toddlers, girls, boys and many more. My favorite ornament for a child at this website is the Glass Ball with Boy Balloons. You can personalize this ornament with the child’s birthday and name. They would love to see their name and their birthday on an ornament hanging from the Christmas tree this year. Priced at only $13.95, this is the average price for all the ornaments they do have.
Kid Ornaments You Can Make / http://www.bhg.com/holidays/christmas/ornaments/kids-christmas-ornaments/
I have given you four different stores that will allow you to buy your child a great Christmas ornament, however during these hard economic times we have to watch our wallet a little closer. I could go ahead and find another great store that has so many different ornaments to choose from, however I think the best thing to give a kid is a gift from the heart and this website allows you to show your crafty side and make a Christmas ornament they will just love. At this website the writer has given you 9 different ornament projects for kids Christmas ornaments. Some include, stick figures, beaded ornaments, floss-filled ornaments which is my favorite one on there. It is a glass ball with all different colored pieces of floss stuffed inside of it. It is fun, colorful and something my son would so pick out at the store if given the chance! The best part about this website is you probably have all the materials needed to make them right at home so the cost is pretty close to nothing!
