Kids can’t wait for Halloween - especially when they have a fun, attractive costumes that they are excited to wear.

Kids love dressing up, and Halloween costumes now go far beyond the usual ghosts, superheroes, witches, and monsters. And with parties, school events, and trick-or-treating to enjoy, there are plenty of reasons for youngsters to disguise their identities with costumes for the festivities.

With near countless different options available, it can be confusing to help kids decide just who or what they want to be for the holiday activities. But there's nothing to fear, because we've put together some tips and ideas to help you and your child choose a Halloween costume that will make this year's plans even more fun - at low prices with free shipping from Walmart.

Super ideas

What kid doesn't occasionally like to through on a cape and mask and feel like a superhero? This urge that youngsters have to dress up as their favorite powerful characters is why superhero costumes have been popular for generations, and will probably never go out of style. A costume like Wonder Woman provides a complete look and a classic character that kids love. It's made of material that is lightweight and comfortable for hours of wear. There are numerous other superhero options available including Spiderman, Batman, and Black Panther.

Cute creatures

Some kids like to dress up as animals and mythical creatures, which leads to fun and unique costume ideas. We like the Disguise Gekko Classic because it has a unique jumpsuit structure with a tail and headpiece for a complete look that's also comfortable to wear. The full coverage it offers makes it ideal for trick-or-treating in chilly weather.

Some animal characters are a bit more colorful than others. A peacock costume, for example, is a good choice for a fun, pretty look. It even has a neat headdress with a comb attachment that's easy to wear. The bright colors of this costume make it easy to been seen, even from a distance - helpful if your little one tends to bolt off to the next house to score a ton of treats.

Classic characters

Many kids love to go as their favorite TV or movie character, and there are many new options to choose from. Paw Patrol Marshall from the popular series is very popular this year, and you can't go wrong with the costume that has several easy-to-fasten pieces.

Or what about the types of characters that come out every Halloween and can be handed down through the ages? A princess, firefighter, or police officer disguise makes youngsters feel transformed into grown-up characters. We like the Police Costume Set by Melissa & Doug because it has a realistic look and comes with everything: a walkie talkie, handcuffs, whistle, badge, and hat.


On the topic of accessories, keep in mind that not all costumes include them. You may need extras such as a mask, hair clips, body paint, glitter, and makeup to complete your child's look.

Halloween only comes once a year, so give your child a memorable experience this holiday with a costume that is comfortable, safe, and creative... then let the fun begin.
