The Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles is one of those story universes that seems to have hit on some kind of golden juice that keeps kids coming back.

Almost every few years, there’s a new iteration to wow and entertain a new generation of kids, while the older ones retain a nostalgia that keeps the characters alive. 

But whatever version of the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles is their favorite, if you’ve got a TMNT-obsessed kid on your hands, you are in the right place.

I spent HOURS carefully curating the best Ninja Turtles gifts for kids, covering everything from TMNT gifts they can display in their room to gifts they can take to school.

TMNT Gifts for Their Desk

1. 12” Classic Raphael

This 12-inch articulated figure of Raphael has something to please TMNT fans of all ages. He’s authentically made to look just like the character from the original cartoon so that older fans will get a kick out of the nostalgia. He also makes a great desk ornament, though, for little fans, he’ll mostly be in action in a range of imaginative play scenarios!

2. Funko Pop. Retro Toys: Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles – Donatello

With their cute stylized features and oversized heads, Funko Pops are meant to be displayed and to appeal to older fans. They make fantastic desk ornaments due to their small size and this adorable Donatello Pop does not disappoint. That said, there’s no reason why kids can’t play with them like action figures, too, as they are safe and durably made!

Buying for someone who already has figures of all four turtles? If so, perhaps they’re missing the crime-fighting journalist April O’Neil to round out the team. This incredible action figure features April’s classic 1987 design and a whopping 31 points of articulation! The figure also comes with several accessories, plus a replacement head with a terrified expression for when things start to get dicey.

The 6-inch figure is impressively detailed, featuring the tentacled brain that is Krang himself and his buff, well-armored and decked-out robot bodysuit. Place him in a faceoff with a Funko Pop Ninja Turtle and you’ll have the perfect stylized TMNT display!

Frequently Asked Questions About Ninja Turtles Gifts

🙋 What are the four Ninja Turtles called?

The four Ninja Turtles are Leonardo, Donatello, Raphael and Michelangelo, or Leo, Donnie, Raph and Mickey. If these names may sound familiar to you, it’s probably because each Ninja Turtle is named after a different Italian painter from the Renaissance period. Why, you ask? 

According to the creators of the original comic, the turtles were initially planned to have Japanese names to go with the Ninja theme. But they couldn’t develop anything that sounded right and went with Renaissance artists because it was “just quirky enough to fit the concept”. 

🙋 What are the Ninja Turtles’ favorite things?

Other than their penchant for fighting crime, the main thing the Ninja Turtles are known for is loving pizza. This makes them both true New Yorkers and relatable to almost any kid across the country. But what do they like besides pizza? 

Well, like teenagers everywhere, they are also big fans of cereal and chocolate, and in the Nickelodeon show of the 2010s, they frequently feasted on worms and algae. However, pizza will always win out as the iconic Ninja Turtle food because not only does it go down a treat after a long day of fighting crime, but it’s also the perfect shape for sliding through a sewer grate!

🙋 Is Ninja Turtles suitable for a 5-year-old?

That depends on which iteration of TMNT you’re referring to. If it’s the Nickelodeon show or the feature films of the 90s and 2010s, the answer is not. 

However, if it’s the original cartoon or the more recent Rise of the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles, there shouldn’t be any issue. If you decide on the OG cartoon, some parents recommend skipping the first 5 episodes as the show is a little more violent before it was picked up for syndication.

To make things even more confusing, a new TMNT movie is coming out this year with a completely new cast and animation style! The 2023 movie is more kid-friendly, but probably best for ages 7 and up.


So… What TMNT Gift Should You Get?

Unfortunately, I can’t answer that for you, as no one knows your little ninja better than you do. 

So don’t skip reading through our list, as it’s full of fun gifts that TMNT fans of all ages will love. For example, younger kids might enjoy playing with an action figure or snuggling like a pillow pet. Older kids may appreciate a collectable item like a Funko Pop or movie prop replica.

Also, consider whether they’d prefer a gift based on the 1980s cartoon series or recent editions such as Rise of the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles.
