Every year when Halloween comes around, we go through the “what do you want to dress as?” debate. We normally tend to be last minute in purchasing Halloween costumes; it just seems to work out that way regardless of how early we start thinking about it. Fortunately this year we were provided with a couple of samples from Walmart’s Halloween costume selection. They came just in time too, since we’ll be heading out to SeaWorld Orlando this weekend for their Halloween Spooktacular event and baby girl and baby boy will be able to try out their new costumes.
Since we didn’t have any preferences for Halloween costumes this year, it was a complete surprise when we opened the box and found a Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles Toddler Costume for baby boy and a Scary Scarlet costume by Wonderland Costumes for baby girl. Baby boy looks adorable dressed as Raphael from Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles and the pretend muscles inside the costume make it ten times better! Of course, my dear baby girl looks great in her costume and it’s perfect for her since it’s a nice mix of girly, but funky. The costume is a purple dress with a tutu, but has a hood with monster eyes, ears, and teeth!
I have to admit that one of the biggest disappointments we face each year when buying Halloween costumes for the kids is the quality vs. price. It seems like you pay anywhere from $20-30 (and many times more!) for a simple costume and you don’t get good quality. Do you feel the same? Many costumes only focus on the front, leaving the back of the costume a plain solid color, which takes away from the fun of dressing up! It just looks incomplete.
So, both my husband and I were pleasantly surprised that the two costumes we received from Walmart were pretty good quality, considering their price points. The Ninja Turtles costume is priced at $15.27 and the Scary Scarlet costume is $19.97. We’ve paid more elsewhere in previous years and feel these costumes from Walmart are on par.
Feel free to check out the Walmart Halloween section on their site for lots of Halloween costume options and decor, something I never really get into, but love looking at on other houses!
What will your kids be dressed as this Halloween?
