Do you recall those childhood holidays in your neighborhood when Santa gaily waved at you and your friends from the rooftops? Back then, those animated Christmas decorations were more simply made, yet still caught the magic of the holidays.
You were as thrilled as your friends were and you counted down the days until the arrival of Santa. You can have some of that same magic in the animated decorations found in retail stores and in online shops.
These decorations aren’t as simple as the ones from years ago. They’re livelier, brighter and built to last for many Christmas celebrations.
These delightful animated decorations can turn any yard and any home into a place of wonder and awe. You can thrill your own family and anyone passing in front of your home by setting up an animated display.
A word to those of you who procrastinate when buying decorations: the animated yard decorations are the first ones to sell out because many people start with their yards when putting up holiday décor.
The best animated Christmas decorations can disappear long before the big day gets here, so don’t put off getting the decorations you want.
Once the big ticket items sell out like that, most retailers don’t restock. Even online stores run out of Christmas decorations if they’re a hot item, so go ahead and order yours.
What kinds of animated decorations can you find? You can find favorite childhood fairytale characters riding in sleds, on trains or waving as a standalone figure.
There are animated angels, ice skating penguins and nutcrackers marching all in a row.
You can find groups of dear or large teddy bears just waiting to come to life at Christmas. One of the faster selling animated yard decorations still remains the large snow globes filled with various scenes.
In some snow globes, you’ll find multi colored presents and animated figures spinning in circles. Some have Disney characters standing beneath falling snow.
Best of all, with animated Christmas decorations, you don’t have to start big. You can start small and build your collection of animated pieces.
Many people assume that it takes more time to set up animated Christmas decorations than putting up regular yard ornaments but nothing could be further from the truth.
Animated decorations are as easy and sometimes even easier than setting up any other kind of display. Many of these decorations are also adaptable to music displays.
Imagine the wonder on the kids’ faces as they see the toy soldiers marching in line to Christmas music or when they see Santa’s sleigh up on the rooftop as it takes off and lands.
There’s a good reason animated Christmas decorations routinely outsell other decorations - the motion and the magic together make the displays truly memorable.
