Anime Collectibles That Make Great Gifts for Kids

Mar 6, 2008
The genre of anime was once considered for adults only. While many movies, television shows, and books that fall into the genre do have adult themes, this has changed dramatically, especially over the past few years. Now, many children and teenagers read anime books and comic books, as well as watch themed television shows and movies. What does this mean for you? It means that anime collectibles are now great gifts for children.

If you are in need of a gift for a child who enjoy anime movies, television shows, or books, you may be looking for great gift ideas. The good news is that you have an unlimited number of options. With that in mind, there are some anime collectables that make better gifts for children and teenagers than others. A few great anime gift ideas for children and teenagers are highlighted below for your convenience.

Anime themed headbands make great gifts for children, as they often come in a number of different formats. For example, come have the Naruto theme and come with shiny plates on them. Anime themed headbands are ideal for children, as they are fun for wearing, playing, or even just collecting in general.

Anime puzzles are another great gift idea for children and teenagers, especially since they come in a number of different formats. For collectable purposes only, gift givers often have unlimited options. If an anime puzzle will be used, be sure to examine its size and age recommendations, as some puzzle may have too many pieces for smaller children.

Anime figurines are one of the most popular gifts given to children. Anime figurines also come in a number of different formats, including a number of different sizes, as well as with a wide range of anime characters. Standard figurine sizes, as well as minis are popular for both playing and collecting. In fact, many children enjoy trading these anime collectibles with their friends.

Speaking of trading, anime trading cards make great gifts for children and teenagers. What is nice about this anime gift idea is the affordability. Depending on the collectable purchased, anime merchandise can get quite costly. For gift giving purposes, many find trading cards affordable.

Anime bobble heads are another one of the many anime gifts that are great for children. They are similar in nature to traditional figurines, but they are often a bit smaller in size. Many children, especially those who play with their collectibles, as opposed to simply storing them, enjoy bobble heads.

Anime posters and anime framed art also make great gifts. Generally speaking, anime framed art is more expensive than traditional posters. A number of popular anime characters are featured on posters and in framed art pieces. If giving an anime poster or an anime framed art piece as a gift, it may be wise to first determine which character your gift recipient follows the most.
Anime jewelry also makes great gifts, especially for females and teen anime followers. Popular jewelry pieces include pins and necklaces. When searching for anime jewelry, especially online, you will likely find that many dealers and stores sell accessory pieces as well. These accessory pieces may include patches, which also make great gifts.

As ideal as anime collectibles are for gifts, it is important to proceed with caution. This is particularly true if you are not an anime fan yourself. This is because anime originated with adult themes, including violence. It is important to use your best judgment, especially when purchasing anime comic books and movies.

Now that you have an idea as to which type of anime collectibles make great gifts for children and teenagers, you may be looking to start shopping. When doing so, you will find that you have a number of different approaches. Often times, hobby shops and professional anime dealers have the best product selections, especially those that operate online. A standard internet search, either with the product or anime character in question, is advised.
