Give Haman the elbow with some of best fancy dress costumes for the kids to dress up in this Purim.
Hot Dog Costume | £14.99
A hot dog costume is a long-time favourite of those looking to get a laugh when dressing up, and though some might be baffled by the concept’s staying power, you can’t deny that seeing a tiny hot dog toddling down the road is going to make a lasting memory. This particular costume from TK Maxx is garnished with mustard and has helpfully wide arm holes.
Triceratops | £28
This adorable triceratops costume is perfect for any little kid who’s a dinosaur fanatic! Not only is it snug and cosy, but the hood is also padded for safety, so your little darling can rampage to their heart’s content, without you having to worry about them getting injured. In addition to this, the claws lay over the top of the hand to avoid restricting hand movement. The suit is available for kids aged three to nine and is supplied by the Natural History Museum.
Paddington Bear | £16
Popular children’s characters make for great costumes, and this Paddington Bear costume from Sains-bury’s certainly tops the competition. The costume is all-in-one and designed for easy fastening. Available for ages five to 10, your kids will have people thinking Paddington’s come to life (just make sure they don’t get up to any Padding- ton-esque antics!)
Sheriff Costume | £22.99
Let your kids lay down the law with this sheriff costume from fancy dress purveyor Smiffys. The set comes with a neckerchief, jacket, and hat, and is available for ages between four and 12. Kids can dress up as their favourite wild west hero (or villain) and play until the cows come home while you focus on post-shul socialising.
Anna from Frozen | £15
Frozen was a smash hit with children, and even now, eight years after its initial release, it’s not uncommon to see children dressed as the characters. This Anna costume is adorable, and features a hooped dress with a black bodice, blue satin skirt with a sparkly tulle overlay, and a black bodice with a flowery design matching Anna’s in the movie. The outfit is available for ages two to 10, so aspiring Anna’s of various ages can dress up.
