top characters to add to the macy’s day parade balloons
posted by soe 1:13 am

This week’s Top Ten Tuesday from That Artsy Reader Girl is a Thanksgiving freebie. While wondering what new giant balloons we’d be treated to in this year’s Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade, I decided that although Macy’s has historically been great about making balloons that include characters from films, tv, and literature, they might like some suggestions for bookish characters we’d like to see moved from the page to the sky. Here are my top ten recommendations:

  1. The Cheshire Cat from Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland
  2. Tigger from Winnie-the-Pooh
  3. Peter from The Snowy Day
  4. Charlotte from Charlotte’s Web
  5. Max from Where the Wild Things Are
  6. The Moomins
  7. Amelia Bedelia
  8. Madeline
  9. Mr. Toad from The Wind in the Willows
  10. Stellaluna

How about you? What characters would you like to see added to their giant balloon repertoire?

Also, would you like to join this year’s Virtual Advent Tour? Signups are now open for December.
