Best Disney Gifts for Big Kids
Time to make a list, check it twice… and frantically get through all of your endless to-do’s before your extended family arrives. As much wonder and charm the holiday season brings, it’s also a stressful time for parents as they navigate parties, shopping, budgeting and ahem, tantrums. If you need a little inspiration for unique Disney-inspired gifts your big kid will be #stoked to receive this year, consider these fun finds. From Star Wars to Frozen, there’s something for every style:
For the princess-in-training who happily spends an afternoon recreating scenes from her favorite movie and humming along to songs she knows every song to, surprise her with this fit-for-royalty purse. It’s small enough to be kid size, yet will hold her most prized possessions, like her sparkly lip gloss, notebook and ticket stubs from movies. Just make sure to buy another one for her sister, since you know competition is fierce.
The force is always with your mini Star Wars fan and now he or she can blast their favorite tunes with this cleverly-designed speaker. Sans wires, they can connect their music player or iPhone to this, sending high-quality sound throughout their room. Though you might have to ask ‘em to turn it down when you’re trying to send some last-minute work emails before bed, their ear-to-ear smile as they open this gift will be worth the extra commotion.
Issue: your child loves Anna and Elsa so much, they insist on playing ‘Let It Go’ on repeat… for hours Every. Single. Day. (Cue: sigh.) To the rescue is a holiday gift that they will go ga-ga over and will deliver peace-and-quiet beyond the season. These bluetooth headphones feature safe listening technology, padded ear cushions for sensitive ears and best of all, will last for up to 18 hours of continuous playtime.
No matter if it’s a dress-up party with her closest friends from school or another Thursday night that calls for a little glam time, these nail wraps will make her evening. You’ll appreciate the mess-free application process and how easily they peel off when she inevitably gets tired of ‘em. And hey, if you want to wear a matching set? You get your pick from Beauty & the Beast, Minnie Mouse and all of the beloved princesses – so everyone can find a style they dig.
Your guy is already fearless, but now he can lead the Star Wars First Order army with this new challenge from LEGO. It’s based on the walker from Star Wars: Episode VIII and includes tough armor-plate detailing, posable head and legs, as well as spring-loaded shooters Consider getting the whole family in on the fight, as you team together to ensure good always wins over evil.
Your kid’s teacher comments on it, you notice it and they love it: doodling. Though this habit might indicate boredom or that your child is struggling to concentrate, it can also be an indicator that an artist is brewing. Channel their scribbles into creativity with this sketching project that empowers him or her to turn their beloved characters from Toy Story, Finding Nemo, Monsters Inc and more into life.
There’s something sweet about starting the tradition of a charm bracelet from a young age. As she meets the princesses at your annual trek to Disney World, or as her attention goes from one film to another, add a charm to this stainless steel bangle designed for little wrists. To start, it’ll come with one initial charm, one mouse ear design and one charm of your choice. From there, the additions are endless.
There’s nothing quite as exhilarating as the plot twists in animated films for pint-sized Disney fanatics. Bring the action and magic of Frozen to life with this new twist on the classic LEGO set. Here, she can gallop off into the sunset as Anna to rescue her sister and see the great winter landscapes of the world. Ready, set, go!
