10 Fun and Bizarre Sleeping Bags for Your Kid's Next Camping Trip

Fall is upon us and here in the south it brings with it the perfect weather for camping. All those cool evenings are perfect for gathering around a fire to roast marshmallows before retiring to a sleeping bag to zip yourself into a toasty cocoon.

I’ve been doing a little searching around the web for the perfect sleeping bags to begin the season. Anders and Danica’s bags from last year are worn to frays, they often play with them indoors as well as use them at sleepovers, and it’s time to replace them with new ones without holes and broken zippers.

Much to my surprise, sleeping bags don’t only come in solid colors or standard patterns of dots and stripes. There are some creative and extremely bizarre bags out there for kids.

Here are 10 of my favorite finds:
