Kids Costume T-shirts – Review

Kid’s T-shirts are a t-shirt printing company that produce a vast array of designs under many different themes from animals to sports, halloween to world book day.  We were asked to choose a t-shirt from their costume section which includes a range of designs that children aspire to be when they grown up.

t shirts 3Some of the designs include an astronaut, policeman, chef, knight, wizard, doctor, firefighter and nurse.  I asked my children to have a look through and see what they wanted to be.  Mister B who is 3 would love to win a gold medal, we are not sure what in yet but it’s something he aspires to own so he picked the gold medal t-shirt.  Miss M on the other hand aspires to be a policeman like her daddy although she wasn’t so keen on a black/yellow t-shirt so decided she wants to be a princess for now.

t shirts 1The t-shirts are generously sized with plenty of room to move around and play in.  I thought the choice was good and depending on the design of the t-shirt you could choose what colour background you wanted.  Both my children loved them and happily wanted to wear them again and again.

I think it’s good for children to start thinking about all the roles and opportunities available to them when they are older, even if it’s just for a bit of fun.  These t-shirts are great to wear everyday but also can be used as part of a dress up outfit.  It also encourages conversation on the topic of the t-shirt.  For Mister B we discussed medals and the different colours, which one is first, second, third and the sorts of events you can win them in.

A prize for Fifi and the Flowertots at School for World Book Day

When Miss M came home from school a few weeks ago with a letter about dressing up for World Book Day, I suggested she just wear her princess dress.  But Miss M didn’t want to, so we sat down at her bookshelf looking for a suitable character from one of her books (and one that I felt didn’t require too much effort to put together!!).

After several suggestions, we came across Miss M’s Fifi and the Flowertots book, and looking at the picture of Fifi I thought actually this is kind of simple – a pair of wellies, pink T-shirt, denim shorts and just need to make a headband.  So decision made, we set to work – a cereal box for the headress and some rolls of crepe paper to decorate.  Miss M loved the cutting and glueing – one of her favourite hobbies!!  I cut a template for the flower shape which she drew around.  We used these to stick over the Minnie Mouse on her wellies and on the sides of the watering can.  And not forgetting a wooden spoon in her pocket just like Fifi always has.

FifiI thought she looked great and she was really excited on her way to school.  I was quite pleased when we got there that she hadn’t just worn her princess dress as it seemed that was the choice for most of the girls in her class.  And how thrilled was I when I picked her up at the end of the day to find out she had come 2nd for best dressed costume across the Early Years Unit at her school.  Well done Miss M!!

A lucky Black Cat for Halloween?

One thing all children love to do is dress up – so when I was offered to pick a Halloween costume from the selection at Joker’s Masquerade, I knew 4 year old Miss M would be thrilled.  They have an extensive choice of Halloween outfits to choose from including Skeletons, Vampires, Zombies, Witches and Ghosts.  So what did Miss M choose? – A Halloween black cat.

And she loved it!!!  Miss M has worn this outfit for the last 3 days since we received the parcel, around the house, to the supermarket and riding up and down the street on her scooter which proves one thing – it must be very comfortable!  This is a very important aspect to me as there is nothing worse than an uncomfortable, itchy outfit that your child doesn’t enjoy wearing.

The Halloween Cool Cat outfit that we chose consists of a black shimmery all in one catsuit with a zip up the back, a velcro tail and a headband with ears.  The costume was very soft and smooth to the touch and easy to put on.  This outfit is suitable for 4-6 year olds and with Miss M just over 4 and half I would say this is the perfect fit.

This is a great little dress up outfit which can be used either to be just a cat or a Halloween black cat which we definitely will be this October.  So if you are looking out for a fancy dress outfit this year either for yourself or your little ones be sure to check out the vast range at Joker’s Masquerade.  You’ll be spoilt for choice – I certainly was!!
