When it comes to toddler bug and animal costumes, there are generally those that are popular for boys, and those that girls just have to have. Technically, they’re all unisex Halloween costumes, but let’s go over which ones boys and girls prefer for their special trick or treat evening.
Toddler girls love little bug costumes that are cute, not scary. Dragonfly costumes are a good example of this. They come with wings, a dress and headbands — and the fiber optics let them light up the night!
Lady Bug costumes for toddler girls are adorable. There are a wide variety of styles. Many of them are ballerina costumes with black tights, and a bodysuit or dress with wings. A little headband for the antennae completes the cute effect.
Bumblebee costumes for toddler girls are just as sweet as the lady bugs! They have black and yellow leotards, a festive tutu, wings and a headband with the antennae attached. She can even hold a special honey-making wand to make her costume more magical.
A butterfly costume is something little toddler girls always love. They can choose a variety of wing colors — some simple and some very fancy. They have Monarch butterfly costumes in Halloween colors that are perfect!
Spider costumes might typically be for boys, but some of them are so beautiful that they’re only fitting for a little girl. Boys can find the less frilly spider costumes that allow them to giggle as they scare everyone who comes in contact with them.
Puppies are another costume many boys like to choose. There are many dog costumes — Dalmatians, Saint Bernards, or even the infamous Scooby Doo himself! Clifford the Big Red Dog is another costumes toddler boys enjoy dressing up in.
If your son is a fan of Harry Potter, since many little ones have caught onto the craze, then he might want to dress up as Harry’s white owl, Hedwig. Another movie costume is a hit among toddler boys. The penguin costume is popular, now that the movie Happy Feet has emerged.
Some little boys have a blast dressing up in a toddler monkey costume. They can jump around and act silly, and their costume has a tail they can play with, too! Some of the costumes have hoods and masks and some don’t, so you’ll be able to choose what your little guy can withstand. Add a banana for an accessory and you’re ready to trick or treat!
A spooky bat is tons of fun for toddler boys. Everyone will pretend they’re scared to death when a little bat walks up on Halloween night. They come with a neat cape (which boys love) and a hood that has perky ears on top.
Lions and dinosaurs are two more costumes in the animal family that boys get excited about for Halloween. Both are fierce and can let your little one roar so loud it frightens off everyone in the vicinity.
