Keep Your Kids Cute, Not Scary, at Halloween!

Kids love to dress up so Halloween is a great opportunity to let them indulge. However, there's no need to make your child look scary when they can still be cute as a little button in their Halloween costume.

Let the smallest members of the family join in the fun of Halloween in these cute costumes. I hope you will find something to your liking and some ideas to build on.

There are two main age categories: Six month up to 2 years and 3 - 4. Although you will find the styles come in smaller and bigger sizes too.

3 - 4 years old...and up

3 - 4 Years and Older

Fun elements required!

Little girls love being a princess, a pixie or fairy...or a character in a book. For the boys costumes such as a Superhuman character always seem to be popular. And of course pirates are popular with both boys and girls!

Most of these costumes do come in various sizes.

Lil Alice In Wonderland Girl's Costume, Medium, One Color

This is my personal favorite!

The dress is in satin and comes with a plastic headband. The apron has a picture of a rabbit on it. Apparently it washes very well and is such a hit that this little girl wants to wear it every day!

Suitable for a three to four year old.

Plum Pixie Child Costume Size Small

The small size fits 3-4 year old. This come is smaller and larger sizes too.

The outfit comes with four pieces to the costume: dress, wings, magic wand, and headband. It has been described as beautifully made, adorable and well fitting.

Don't they look adorable?

Little Adventures Cinderella Princess Dress Up Costume + Hair Bow

Girls Size 3T,4T,5T

Machine Washable!

This is made of quality fabric and washes well. One criticism is that it tends to be a bit long. This can be rectified by loosely hemming to the right height and then the dress will last longer! For 3 years and up.

What little girl doesn't love being a fairy or princess whether at dance class or dressing up?

Superman Child's Costume, Small

Reversible Spider-Man Red To Black Classic Costume, Child S


Miko dresses as Spiderman, which seems a very popular comic book hero for little boys. I constantly see little Spidermen running around the park at any time of the year...never mind at Halloween!

Ahoy Matey Boy's Costume, Large, One Color

The garment is made of polyester. The shirt comes with the vest attached and the pants have printed patches. Also comes with a bandana and waist tie and skull clips.

A pirate outfit is particularly good for a group party. Each of the kids can be dressed with their eye patches and bandana and is easy to make do with items you have in your own wardrobe...a good budget option!
