Best Toddler Dress Up & Role Play in 2020



JerrisApparel Flower Girls Unicorn Costume Pageant Princess Party Dress Review:


I purchased two of these dresses, one in purple and one in pink and in two different sizes. I got the 6 years one for my 4 year old who is in a size 5T clothes, and a 3 years one for my 2 year old who is in a size 2T clothes. Both of my daughters are pretty thin so I expected the dresses to be a little long and loose, and they were. I am planning on them wearing it for both Halloween, and for their birthdays in Jan/Feb. The length was great-long but it still works. The bodice is a little loose, but it's a relatively easy fix for those who know how to sew. I feel like the quality for these dresses were good for the price. The purple one (3 years) had a gem that fell off immediately but I expect I'll fix it with a little super glue. The loss of the gem isn't too noticeable as the rest of the dress is beaded enough to not detract from the loss. The pink (6 years) one had one of the organza ruffles that wasn't edged properly so the fabric is already fraying. I'll have to either put some fray check on it and hem or burn the edge and hem. Of the two fixes I'll need to do on the dresses, I find this one to be the more annoying. I haven't tried washing them yet, but I am planning on hand-washing these dresses, I don't expect them to do well in the washer, even if they were put in a delicates bag. But if you're trying to machine wash, I would probably turn inside out, put in a delicates bag, and then put on the gentle cycle and hang to dry. The horn on one of the headbands was a little loose/wobbly, so I'll have to hot glue to secure it. My daughters do have a little trouble keeping the headbands on their head, but I think their head circumference is considered a little smaller than average whenever we go to the doctor's office. So I'm not sure if we'll be able to use the headbands or if I'll just bobby pin to their heads to secure. Overall, I think the dresses are very pretty and adorable and reasonably priced, especially since the horn is included, and if you're willing to put up with imperfections and fixing them then I think they're a good purchase!



California Costumes Men's Storybook Prince Costume Review:


This costume is a great deal for the price. With a few minor adjustments, it looks great. I'm 5'7"/160lbs and a medium fits nearly perfectly. To fix the costume - the golden sash had a lot of seams on it - just iron it on low from the back side, and the creases come right out. The red bit on the shoulders is only attached by one piece of Velcro on each shoulder, so it pops up and looks funny - to fix, I got some Velcro circles from a local fabric store and attached them to hold it down. And then the belt is loose and requires either trimming at the end or more Velcro. As the description says, it doesn't come with the white gloves or black pants. But for the price you pay, the issues are pretty minor and easily fixed, and it's a very good deal if you're looking for a "Prince Charming" costume.



Natural Uniforms Childrens Scrub Set-Soft Touch Review:


Oh my, I didn't have a clue what to expect after reading the reviews. I ordered the ceil blue size 7 for my 6 1/2 year old Grandson and he is 4'1" tall, 60 lbs. and slim built. This fit him perfectly.,,, but he normally wears size 8 in Under Armour. So I see why the reviews were mixed as to fit. I had placed another order for the size 8/10 because he needed scrubs for Career day at Kindergarten and wasn't sure how the 7 would fit . Oh well, he'll have those in the future. They are a little stiff but once washed they were so soft. I hung them up after drying them in the dryer and not one wrinkle. Very nice. He loves them. I did cut the tags off because it scratched his neck. Please stamp sizes instead of stiff tags. I also ordered the child stethoscope as an add on for $4+ and he loved hearing his heartbeat. He came to work with me at the Dr's office for Take a Kid to Work day, so now he has his own outfit. Very happy Grandson!!!!



Rubie's Paw Patrol Chase Child Costume, Small Review:


First of all I am not a paid reviewer. I had many reservations about blowing money on a cheap costume for my 3yo son. This costume has withstood multiple wearings with minimal damage. Make no mistake, this is by far not made of hard-wearing materials or even all that well put together. That said, my son is in love with this costume and has worn it/played in it/eaten in it many times since Halloween and it's holding up rather well. I like the fact that the little backpack has hook/loop closures on the straps so I didn't have to wrestle him out of it or struggle with it when he was in the car seat. The hat is adorable and is made of sturdier material. I count it as a WIN that he's worn it as much as he has and the ears haven't fallen off the hat, or the cuffs fallen off or frayed, or the backpack hasn't come apart. You get what you pay for in most cases, but this is a good example of a costume that will hold up to play. I haven't washed it yet, and if i do, it will likely be in the sink. He is tall for his age, so I bought him the "small" not the "toddler" size. I've had to roll up the pant and sleeve cuffs, but it accommodated his little jeans and sweatshirt just fine and I had to make no other alterations. Overall good value for the money.

Gekko Classic Toddler PJ Masks Costume, Small/2T Review:


I know I'm posting this after Halloween but I still like to review things and there's always next year, or costume parties....or dress up time. I had intended for my newly turned 2 year old to be something else but he saw his big brother in a Catboy costume and got super excited. His brother suggested he be Gecko and he started jumping around shouting "Gecko!". So I bought him a second costume! He LOVED it from moment 1. We live in the North so it has to go over clothes for Trick or Treating. The fit was pretty spot on for him but he's not large for his age at all. If your child is a larger 2 year old you might want to size up. It's thin but the material makes it fairly warm still. The removable tail is a nice feature. We got SO many compliments on how cute our little guy looked in this though he kept tripping in it, I blame the mask. But he was having so much fun we didn't take it off. The CUTEST part of this costume with a little guy is the tail wiggling back and forth as they walk/run. I actually took a video of just him from behind and everyone thought it was the best Halloween video they'd seen bc it was super cute and different from actually seeing the kids faces, haha. I plan on letting my boys play with their costumes as long as they fit in them, should be perfect on snow days if we are inside.



Padete Little Girl Mermaid Princess Costume Sequins Party Dress Review:


What an adorable outfit! Purchased a size 5-6 for my almost 4 year old. She loves it! It fits well and has held up through about 4 washes (air dry). The accessories are an especially great bonus. I did donate the gloves because they had a nasty smell, but the rest are cheap, plastic, and everything a preschooler wants them to be. Would definitely suggest for a mermaid birthday outfit.



TOLOCO Inflatable Sumo Rider Costume | Inflatable Costumes for Adults Or Kids | Halloween Costume | Blow Up Costume (Sumo) Review:


My daughter begged me for this costume. I bought it 2 days ago and it literally just came in. It fits as expected. It is plastic, but it’s a thicker more durable plastic. It comes with a built in fan (need 4 AA batteries). There’s a clip on the fan which allows you to clip on their hip. It also comes with a wig. She loves the costume and couldn’t be any happier! Definitely glad I made this purchase!



Seeksmile Adult Lycra Spandex Gloves Review:


I bought beige so I would not scare people. I had a bunch of nasty-looking stitches on the back of my right hand and I did not want people feeling sorry for me. ... I thought if a rock star can do it ... so can I, but I preferred beige to avoid all the attention.

Would I ever need to buy another pair ... Yes I might, but it makes just me cringe to think about it. ;) How's that for an excellent review? Happily, most people did not even notice my right hand with a glove on it. If they did I told them I was a rock star.



Cat Cosplay Costume Kitten Tail Ears Collar Paws Gloves Anime Lolita Gothic Set Review:


Mainly bought for the ears and paws, (mostly paws) which are already pretty great for the price; but the tail is just really bad in general unless if you were willing to try and sew it on or something. The pin for the tail doesn't hold in place at all, and the tail itself definitely keeps shape well, but gravity messes that up pretty fast since the tail can't stay in place correctly. I, personally, would probably recommend a plug tug tail or something of the sort if it's something you want to be done right. As for the bowtie, it's just a little bit silly in my opinion, and I've only tried it on a couple times. The paws have very soft material in and out, although they do get pretty sweaty after just a little while of wearing. As for the four fingers of the paws themselves, that was what sold me on this but it still feels like something doesn't fit right with them even with switching hands. That's most likely just a speculation because of the one-size-fits-all. The ears headband is pretty much just like any other, although I wish there were more diverse color choices on this lot. That's probably something for Etsy, though. Overall, it's a great set and the bells and ribbon make it beautiful. I just wish I didn't buy gray because it doesn't look as good as I wished on me. Oh well.
