Character costumes for little babies are so cute. They’re scaled down versions of the most popular Superheroes, TV characters and beloved movie icons of years gone by as well as modern blockbusters.
Little girls love the storybook costumes, like Cinderella, snow White or Belle from Beauty and the Beast. They’re cute little dresses perfect for a baby, and come in bunting infant sizes all the way to toddler and older.
Little Mermaid’s Ariel is a popular choice because all little girls love the magical premise of being an underwater sea princess. The costumes have bunting sea-green tails, while the older baby costumes allow their feet to move individually.
Two more baby girl favorites are Minnie Mouse and Tinkerbell. The Mickey Mouse Playhouse is a popular TV show now, so all the baby girls like to wear the Minnie dress and mouse ears. Peter Pan’s Tinkerbell has her own movies now, too — so her cute fairy outfits for babies are a hot item this Halloween.
For the TV crowd, you might want to dress your baby girl up in one of the shows geared to younger ones, like Strawberry Shortcake (or one of her many friends), Smurfette from the Smurfs, Baby Maggie from the Simpsons, or Dora the Explorer.
Boys aren’t left out of the TV options, either. If your son like watching Dora, then he might want to dress up as her adventurous cousin Diego. Or, if he’s a fan of Thomas the Train, he can be a conductor — or Thomas himself!
There are a few TV shows that work for both genders when it comes to baby costumes. Star Trek is primarily for boys, but they do have some little girl options, too. This would primarily be for parents who are fans, because not many babies are watching (and enjoying) this show.
Two character groups that do get thumbs up from kids of all ages are the Muppets and Sesame Street. Your daughter could dress as Miss Piggy and your son as Kermit or Gonzo from the Muppets.
Sesame Street has a whole plethora of costume ideas. Your child can be Cookie Monster, Elmo, Abby Cadabby, Big Bird, Grover, Telly Monster, Snuffleupagus, or even Bert and Ernie.
For baby boys, try one of the characters from this year’s blockbuster movies — the Avengers. He can be Thor, Iron Man, Captain America or the Hulk. Other popular character costumes for baby boys include Peter Pan, Batman and Superman.
If your family is into movies, then Monsters, Inc. and Toy Story offer a ton of options for baby costumes — like the Baby Alien from Toy Story or Mike Wazowski from Monsters, Inc., whose costume has a candy pouch so your little one doesn’t have to carry a separate bag.
