Birthday Freebies for Kids

Lots of places offer birthday freebies for adults, but I wanted to create a list of birthday freebies specifically for kids! My son LOVES his birthday; he basically wants to celebrate all month. Truth be told, I do, too! When he was really little, he LOVED redeeming his birthday freebies. He especially enjoyed the sweet treat at Barnes & Noble each year.

One thing I learned while making this list is that many places that offer traditional birthday freebies (intended for adult shoppers) actually state their offers are for anyone13 years of age and up. I did not include those in this list, as I will be doing a post on adult birthday freebies again this year. So, if you have teenagers, definitely check that out!

For each of the deals below, you will want to visit the site for more information and details, as stores can change their policies at any time.
