Are you having a hard time trying to figure out what to get your kids for their next birthday or for Christmas? You may be thinking that by now your children have got to have too many toys and that it would be so much better to give them clothes or shoes that they can use in school.
What little girl is not completely entranced by the idea of being a princess? It is hard not to be, with the focus in the media, both books and movies, on stories that end with "Happily Ever After" and feature beautiful princesses and handsome princes.
While girls tend to gravitate toward princess items, boys are more interested in pirates. They're fascinated by the wild lifestyle that pirates lead, swishing swords and ships. A boy pirate costume can be whipped up at home, no problem and is bound to be a big hit.
