About Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles Costumes
If you're in your late twenties or thirties, chances are you have fond memories of TMNT - Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles (or Teenage Mutant 'Hero' Turtles as they were known here in Europe). The adventures of the sewer-dwelling, karate-loving turtles Leonardo, Michelangelo, Donatello and Raphael were all over television screens and the obsession of children across the country in the nineties. As a result of this success, a range of successful merchandise was launched, with everything from action figures to lunch boxes bearing images of the popular characters.
In short, this series was everywhere in the nineties and if you are looking to recreate your nostalgia for the show, you can buy a range of costumes based on popular characters. There's the turtles themselves, as well as their sensei, a rat named Splinter and the bad guy, 'Shredder'. The girls don't need to be left out either, grab a yellow jumpsuit and a ginger wig and you can be the Turtles' news reporter friend April O'Neill.
The franchise has recently enjoyed a renaissance, with an all-new animated series being shown on the Nickleodeon channel. If your kids are fans of the show, or maybe you want to show them how great it was, you can also dress them in a range of outfits from ages 3+.
When buying TMNT costumes, check to make sure that what you are buying will be of a decent quality and that all of the accessories, e.g. swords, nun chucks and bandannas are included.
