Dress Up and Enjoy Imaginative Play with Just Pretend Kids

Recently I was telling my husband how I needed to get some costumes for the kids. And then I heard about Just Pretend Kids, a company that makes high quality dress up costumes that inspire children to explore and celebrate their own creative spirit. So, when I was contacted and asked to review a costume, I jumped at the opportunity to receive one of their cute dress up costumes.

Just Pretend Kids has so many cute outfits to choose from on their site. There are all sorts of fairies, a toddler monster costume and bumblebees – all adorable. My top two choices were the toddler monarch butterfly (for my daughter) and the monster costume (for my son). I ended up going with the bodysuit, tutu, boppy (headband), wand and wings from the Monarch Butterfly Collection for my review which is a part of their insect collection.

I received all the necessary parts to really pull this set together:

I was so excited to receive this outfit. The set looks adorable online and I was not disappointed in person. Each piece is great quality and seems like it could hold up pretty well against young kids, which is important if it’s going to be a play outfit. The only parts that seem fairly fragile are the wings, which seemed to be almost a nylon/pantyhose type material, and the puffs on the wand and boppy. I would complete expect those parts to be susceptible to damage in any similar costume though.

This is a toddler outfit so it is intended for someone a little larger than my daughter, but I wanted something that was going to last a bit since she was on the borderline for being too big for three similar infant outfits. It was a little loose on her, but acceptable to wear and she will be able to wear it for quite some time. It might just be perfect as a Halloween costume. The only thing I would add to the pieces would be some striped leg warmers/leggings for colder weather wear (such as Halloween).

I’ve dealt with some pretty disappointing costumes in the past that were store bought, but this costume is right on the level with a good homemade costume. I love showing the pictures of my daughter decked out in it to family. I can’t wait for her to play in it more.

Cute and great quality costumes – definitely think this is worth the price, especially considering the prices I’ve seen on some other subpar costumes.
