It’s Halloween! Moms and dads throughout the United States are searching to find just the right costume for their little ones. Just head out to the big box stores and you will find a wide assortment of costumes, but there’s one problem! Generally speaking, that costume is designed to be a one-time thing.
Think about it. You find the perfect costume for your little one that wants to be a princess. In your eyes, she’s a princess every day! But on this one day set aside each year for dressing up and getting candy, you head out to buy her the perfect costume from the store. $50 later, you have bought the deluxe costume! As she gazes lovingly at the costume of her dreams, she begs you to let her put it on when you get home. She wants to be the princess now! Of course, you allow her to wear it as soon as you get home.
You look to take a peek into the bedroom and see that she is having the best time! She’s twirling and hosting a tea party with all her stuffed animals and dolls. It does not get much sweeter than this until you hear that scream. You scramble into the bedroom to see that she has just spilled something all over her dress. Or perhpas you find that the beautifully arranged tulle that was used as part of her costume has ripped as it was snagged on the dollhouse in her room. Instead of that sweet little girl, you now have a little girl in full tantrum mode. Her cotume is ruined and Halloween is tomorrow! What do you do? Run out and spend another $50 on a costume. Of course not! You make the best of the what’s left and pray that nothing else happens before tomorrow night.
One of the BIG problems with purchasing Halloween costumes is that the costumes do not last. They are not designed to be machine washable and worn over and over. They are pretty much a one time, one-night deal! Now if you do not mind shelling out money for a costume that can be worn only once, then great! But if you are like me, I want to get more bang for my buck! I want to get something that goes beyond Halloween night. I want her to be able to wear this costume anytime she wants. After all, creative play is important!
Thankfully, you do not have to look any further than Little Adventures. Little Adventures, created by two moms, provides costumes that extend beyond the October 31st! These mothers knew the frustration that many of us have with Halloween costumes. Kids (and parents) need dress up clothes that are easy to care for so they made costumes that are “comfortable and soft, easy to put on and take off, lightweight for all day play and best of all machine washable!”
So this year we are going with moms that get it! We want to have a costume that extends beyond the life of Halloween and can provide hours of imaginative play for a few years. The Mermaid Dress is sure to bring us hours of fun!
Little Adventures has a great selection of dress-up costumes. Whether you are looking for a costume for a special event or just want to give them the opportunity to play around, check out their selection. They are affordable and adorable!
