What’s fabulous, ethereal, and one-of-a-kind? You, of course — and unicorns. It doesn’t matter how young or old you are; everyone deserves some sparkles and laughter in their lives, and what better reason to sprinkle in some magic than April 9, National Unicorn Day?
These mythical beasts have fascinated people all over the globe for thousands of years, and with good reason. Some believe their horns have supernatural powers, while others have described the unicorn as a symbol for Christ (?). Scotland, apparently, loves the unicorn so much that it’s the country’s national animal.
Of course, you don’t have to believe in the folklore (or be Scottish) to appreciate these horned creatures. Unicorns are super on-trend these days and have become a symbol of childlike happiness and dreams, inspiring everything from tasty unicorn poop cookies and unicorn gin cocktails to rainbow hairdos and colorful school supplies. But like all good things, you can never have too many unicorn goodies — and neither can your kids. So celebrate National Unicorn Day — or any day, really — with these fun, colorful kids’ toys and accessories.
