How To Choose The Right Kids Fancy Dress Costume

How To Choose The Right Kids Fancy Dress Costume

Dress to impress! Whether it’s for imaginary play sessions or a fancy dress party, kids love putting on a costume. Here’s everything you need to know about how to pick the right costume for your child.

1. Dress For Comfort

Comfort is key! Little ones aren’t going to enjoy wearing an ill-fitting or scratchy costume as it stops them from being able to play in it. Some things to consider are:

  • Itchy labels or seams
  • Fabric thickness (making sure it’s appropriate for the season’s temperature)
  • Fabric comfort (is it soft?)
  • The fit (make sure it’s the right size for their age)

2. Likes & Interests

What does your youngster want to be when they grow up? There’s nothing better than seeing a child in a fancy dress costume that they adore. Choosing something that meets their interests will make the experience even more magical.

We believe that children can be anything they want to be! We are excited to showcase our brand new range of kids dress up costumes. Thoughtfully designed in the UK, each of our children’s dressing up clothes inspires young imaginations to be creative.

3. Easy To Wear

Choose kids' fancy dress costumes that are simple to get on and off - this helps save you time (and patience) if they want to wear something else!

Our children’s costumes are easy to wear as they come with hook and loop fasteners (velcro). This ensures that kids are able to independently dress themselves (no tricky buttons or zips) and the costumes stay on during playtime. Our builder and firefighter helmets also have adjustable backs to accommodate a range of head sizes.

Each costume is easy to care for, too. Simply pop in the washing machine to have each dress-up set looking as good as new!
