The Best Safe Halloween Kids Costumes
Halloween promises a day full of family fun, from the excitement of carving spooky faces into pumpkins to the joy of finding sweets at neighbours’ doorsteps. But when it comes to dressing up, finding a safe Halloween costume for kids might not be as easy as you might think.
We have delved deeper to explore child-friendly costumes and how to keep kids safe this Halloween.
The thing is, while children’s clothing has to meet strict safety guidelines, children’s dress up costumes don’t. The safety standards around children’s nightwear are particularly diligent, and since these regulations were put in place in 1985, there has been a significant reduction in fire-related accidents involving this type of clothing.
Children's costumes are yet to catch up, with many outfits using cheap materials that are highly flammable. This is far from ideal on Halloween, when candles and lanterns line the streets and sparklers flicker in little hands.
However, our dress up range has been tested to the latest EN71 & REACH regulations to ensure child safety is a priority - that way you can feel confident while you’re out and about with your mini medic or zombie builder this Halloween.
