For some of us Halloween is a treasured tradition, which we experienced ourselves as children. For others it’s simply a chance to have fun with magic, masquerade and MUNSTERS! Read on to discover our Top Ten Picks for Tiny Tricksters.
Halloween Costumes For Kids
This dashing Pirate Halloween costume (1) featured in our spooky woodland shoot. It leaves enough room to be styled it with every day jackets and jumpers to keep trick or treating toasty without losing the effect of the costume. Who says witches need to be wicked or dreary, our Wild Witch Dress (2) offers a vibrant alternative. This lovely sequinned costume with smocking detail comes with a matching witch hat!
There’s no need to brave Halloween adventures alone when you have a magic companion like this Lucy Locket Fairy (3) She comes complete with her own gauzy gift bag which can be carried at the wrist. At only £4 she is the perfect party favour or candy substitute.
If the kids who would like to try their hand at magic, get them started with this box of 52 cool tricks for kids by Lynn Gordon(4). The box contains a deck of instructional cards, which are sure to amuse and intrigue.
We couldn’t do a top ten list without something special for mummy. For Halloween we have our eye on Alexander McQueen’s iconic skull accessory collection. This leopard-print, calf hair bracelet with attached Swarovski skull charm is a wild accent to every outfit, available online at Net-A-Porter(5).
Spooky motifs have featured heavily in designer kids collections this season. Our favourites are the bold graphic T-shirts by Australian brand Munster Kids(6) and the ghostly glow in the dark creations from Stella McCartney Kids.
Looking for ideas for Halloween fun? Don’t restrict yourself to sugar fuelled trick or treating when you can take in the relative calm of the Magic Worlds exhibition at the V&A Museum of Childhood, London. The Museum is holding a series of ‘bewitching events’ to mark the October half term.
America is where Halloween is done best, so if you are Stateside you’re in for a special treat. NYC has a multitude of spooky but child friendly events throughout October. We wish we were attending the ‘Spooky, Eerie, Scary Pipes’ Halloween concert in Brooklyn. Families can listen to Organist Gregory Eaton play some scary songs and participate in a Black Cat catwalk before hitting the town to trick or treat.
Halloween wouldn’t be complete without something sweet. We can’t resist the Halloween collection from custom Biscuit Bakers, Biscuiteers. Perfect seasonal gift or half term treat, order yours online quick!
