Looking for a Halloween costume for your little one? Don’t fret, Disney Consumer Products is offering a huge selection of costumes from princesses to super heroes, pirates to mermaids, classic characters and new ones featuring Marvel and Star Wars.
For the first time, kids can dress up in costumes from Sofia the First, Frozen, Disney’s Planes, Monsters University and Star Wars. The NY Motherhood Examiner had the opportunity to receive a Sofia the First costume to assess. This costume is flying off the shelves, and mom friends are saying how their daughters are begging to be Sofia the First this Halloween.
It’s not a surprise, given the popularity of this hit show. Little girls love the fact that Sofia the First is a child princess. She was not born to royalty, but rather was brought into it when her mother married a King who happens to have children of his own. Sofia the First has a good heart, always thinking of others and trying to do the right thing.
The quality of the costume is impressive. It includes layers beneath the skirt instead of just one flimsy layer. This stands out because most children’s costumes including princess ones tend to be pretty cheaply made with minimum material and passable workmanship. The Sofia the First gown is detailed with embroidered trim, and the full skirt it really makes little girls feel like their princesses. (Disney Store, $12.95 - $44.95)
