Looking for some cute Halloween costumes for toddlers and infants? Over the past few years, I have become an expert when it comes to Halloween costumes. My kids all love dressing up and going trick or treating. While my youngest may not have completely understood what was going on last year, he is already interested in some of my daughter’s make believe clothes, making me think it’s the right time to get some play costumes for him, as well as a Halloween costume.

When I first started looking for Halloween costumes for my kids, I was surprised just how many Halloween costumes for toddlers and infants were actually available. My mother had always made costumes for all of us growing up, so I had never really looked for kids costumes until my oldest daughter was about two. I was truly amazed at all the options that were available! If this is your first year purchasing Halloween costumes for infants or toddlers, here are some tips to help you out!

Halloween Costumes for Toddlers & Infants: Infant Costumes

In my opinion, finding Halloween costumes for infants is a lot of fun, but can also be very stressful.  While toddlers grow quickly, parents know that they are likely to be changing out clothes for their infant on a monthly basis. For this reason it is a bit difficult to pick the right sized Halloween costume for an infant ahead of time, making it important that you get a variety of sizes of your favorite costume  to make sure you have one that fits. Most Halloween retailers do not take returns on costumes, however, so make sure you pick a retailer who is willing to take back unused costumes, such as Amazon.

Unlike most Halloween costumes for toddlers, infant costumes are designed to more or less be unisex. This is the time to focus on cute costumes such as animal costumes and cartoon characters. I have found that animal costumes get the most reaction from adults and kids seem to relate to them, especially if you pick something like a kitty cat or cute puppy. These costumes never go out of style and kids usually love seeing pictures of themselves as babies dressed as bumble bees or a cute animal.

While I usually go with cute costumes for infants, Halloween costumes for toddlers can usually be a bit more fun and creative. If you want to have a pretty little fairy or Spider-Man, this is the time where it starts being appropriate. Most toddler costumes are made for children between the ages of two and four, and are one of the few times you will see actual sizing on Halloween costumes. For example, you can find costumes that are labeled at 4T. When looking at these costumes, however, make sure to get the measurements of your child to make sure the costume won’t be too big or too small. While I have never had issues with the sizing of these costumes, some of my friends have in the past and had to borrow costumes my daughters have worn.

Halloween Costumes for Toddlers & Infants: Costumes for Girls

Hello Kitty Halloween Costumes As you can guess, I have a lot of experience with little girl’s costumes. Having two daughters, I have gone through a variety of different Halloween costumes for toddlers and infants over the years. My girls absolutely love Halloween and playing dress up, so we usually buy more than one costume during the Halloween season.  I have found that Halloween and right after Halloween, for example, is the best time to buy Disney princess outfits.  If you can’t decide what costume to purchase for your daughter, don’t be afraid to purchase multiple costumes! I can almost guarantee your daughter will love you for it since she will get countless hours of playtime out of these costumes!

This year as I am looking at costumes, many of the Halloween costumes for toddlers that were popular in the past are just as popular this year. There are a variety of different costumes I would recommend for both infants and toddlers, including:

Halloween Costumes for Toddlers & Infants: Costumes for Boys

Dragons toddler and infant halloween costumesBeing the first year I have had a chance to choose a costume for my son, I have had a lot of fun looking at costumes for little boys. While my husband wanted to go with a superhero costume, I wanted to go with something a bit more cute. We ended up going with a Raggedy Andy costume. Along with that costume, I decided to go with a classic dog costume, since he is all about puppy dogs right now. I have tried both of these costumes on him already and while they are a bit big, they are adorable!

If you are looking for a Halloween costume for a toddler, however, I recommend looking at super hero costumes. All the little boys this year are all about the superhero’s they see in their favorite cartoons. Some of the most popular Halloween costumes for boys include:

Halloween Costumes for Toddlers & Infants: Where to Purchase

I can tell you that buying costumes for little ones isn’t exactly cheap. Many retailers charge an arm and leg for their costumes since small costumes are supposedly harder to make. While I understand this to a point, this doesn’t mean I want to pay premium prices for a costume my child is likely never going to wear again. This is why I go bargain shopping for all of my Halloween costumes. Usually, I go to Halloween dedicated sites and start looking at all the adorable Halloween costumes for toddlers and infants.

Once a pick out the costumes that I think will be perfect, I copy the name of the costume or the item number that is associated with the costume maker. From there, I take my search to Amazon.com. Nearly every well known costume maker sells their costumes on Amazon, and usually at a significantly cheaper price than their own store! If they don’t, another store will have it cheaper. In the past, I have saved anywhere from $10 to $40 on Halloween costumes for toddlers, leaving me some extra money to spend on toys. With great prices and a large selection of costumes, who wouldn’t want to do all of their Halloween shopping at Amazon?
