Nature-loving cartoon character Diego gets a thumbs-up from his devoted toddler and preschool fans. For a do-it-yourself Diego look, scavenge your closet for blue shorts, a blue shirt, and a khaki vest. No Diego is complete without a watch and a pack slung across his back.

With Shrek the Third hitting the big screen earlier this year, children will get a kick out of dressing as the movie's quirky part Donkey, part Dragon.

Dronkey is available at and other retailers.

Chef Linguini

Your culinary cutie will earn five stars dressed as kindly Linguini from the movie Ratatouille. Pair black pants with a white long-sleeved shirt or jacket. The icing on the cake? A classic chef's toque. For an extra dash of drama, add a spatula and wooden spoon -- two necessary tools for any aspiring chef. Chef Linguini is available at and other retailers.

Deluxe Teddy Bear

This cute, cuddly teddy is unbearably adorable! The rainbow blanket and blue silky bow tie make this costume extra special.
