Role Play Costumes for Kids

Fancy Pants Kids Keeps Lil Imaginations Churning

Costumes aren't just for Halloween. Parents know that dressing up is a favorite activity of toddlers and preschoolers alike, inspiring creative imaginary play.

Trying to fill a dress-up trunk with gender-neutral costumes that your tot and playdate friends are willing to put on can be a challenge. Most costumes found during Halloween season, tend to fall into traditional gender categories or have Hollywood-themed characters attached to them. Fancy Pants Kids, a Canada-based costume company, is out to change that. Their beautifully-made costumes are the handiwork of a former stage manager who creates designs that inspire afternoons filled with dramatic play. From dragon tails ($48) and crowns ($12) to superhero capes ($25) and pointy-eared headbands ($22), the pieces are made to last well-beyond the next costume holiday.
