What are the Top Kids Halloween Costumes for 2014?

When there air begins to get a chill in it, and the days become shorter as each one passes, children become more excited because they know that Halloween is just around the corner. This is perhaps the only time of year where parents actually permit their offspring to take candy from strangers-on any other day it would be forbidden.

My children are fast-they run from door-to-door with their friends.  In fact, there is an unwritten rule with the group that they go with-if you cannot keep up, then you need to go home.  They slow down for no one and after a while, kids do begin to leave and then it is down to the hearty few.

When they are done filling their stomachs with candy, I permit them to keep as many pieces as their age.  The rest is donated.  At the school my children attend, they make decorated bags and cards and fill it with candy.  Then a local military organization ships them overseas to the men and women in our armed forces.

It is always a mystery what costume my children choose to wear.  Here are the top Halloween costumes for kids in 2014 that will be among the top choices for kids everywhere.

Disney Frozen Costumes for Kids

For fans of Princesss Anna, there are two dress up choices-the Coronation dress or the one where she searches for her sister.

When the Planes series of movies was created, Disney planned it to be a trilogy.  The first installment appeared in late summer 2013 to a big success with the preschool crowd.  Summer 2014 saw the second part of the trilogy appear in theaters, and it was entitled Planes Fire and Rescue.

The protagonist of the first movie, Dusty Crophopper, once again stars as the plane that has to overcome many naysayers to prove that he has what it takes to succeed.

Angelina Jolie’s portrayal of the much maligned Maleficent was an interesting one.  Fans of Sleeping Beauty always felt that she was evil for the sake of it, but after watching Maleficent, we know see the other side of the story.  A woman scored by her adored Stefan, we see how the thirst for revenge took an interesting turn in the film.
