Classic Halloween Costumes for Kids
Pumpkins and ghosts and mummies, oh my! These Halloween costumes are completely timeless but with a little modern twist. From a Squishmallow-inspired pumpkin to a brave astronaut and medieval vampire, these dress-up ideas never go out of style and are so fun for kids of all ages.
Best Superhero Costumes for Kids
When the new Spider-Man: Across the Spider-Verse hit the big screen this summer, Miles Morales jumped back onto our screens, and we're sure to see sidewalks full of all versions of the "Friendly Neighborhood Spider-Man." And, of course, there's a wide range of other superheroes to choose from, including the ever-cool Blue Beetle, the high-in-the-sky Falcon and the under-the-sea Mera.
Best Villain Costumes for Kids
With the release of The Super Mario Bros. Movie earlier this year, we foresee spotting a lot of tiny Bowsers running around demanding treats. Give your kiddos the chance to bring out their dark side by dressing up as a villain.
Best Adaptive Costumes for Kids
Designed with all kids in mind, adaptive and sensory-friendly costumes ensure that every child gets to dress up as his or her favorite character. Transform a wheelchair into the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles' van or The Incredibles' car. Outfit kiddos with adaptive jumpsuits that feature full-length zippers and shoulder snaps for ease of dressing, and if needed, some costumes have pockets for pumps.
Favorite Character Costumes for Kids
Kids love getting to dress up as beloved characters from epic video games and can't-miss TV shows and movies. Whether they go for the classics, such as The Wizard of Oz, Barbie and Lego, or the new guard of Minecraft, Ted Lasso and PAW Patrol, your kiddo will have a blast showing off their faves.
Best Creature Costumes for Kids
Roars, growls, hisses or trills, these playful costumes give kids the chance to take a walk on the wide side. Just know that opting for a dragon costume might inspire a fire-breathing night of trick-or-treating.
