I hope someone still checks this since it's been years from the last post. I have two daughters in LOVE with Peppa Pig and I desperately need a halloween costume for my two year old. They aren't sold here in the US and I can only find adult costumes online. Does anyone know where to find a toddler Peppa Pig costume? Any help is greatly appreciated. Thanks y'all!!!

My 3 year-old is Abby Cadabby (from Sesame Street). I assembled the costume from various bits and pieces. It is a fun & creative activity for me and she is absolutely in love with her costume! Yes, I ended up spending a little more than I would have if I'd just bought the $15 costume at the party store, but she can re-use and re-combine all the pieces for everyday and for dress up. And it will last a lot longer than the pre-made disposable ones. She's exstatic and I am thrilled. What else can you ask for? I love kids (and grown-ups too) dressing up and being silly. It's not like we won't eat dinner tonight because she got a "new" Halloween costume. It's a fun celebration. Now, all that candy...I could really do without. But I will just have to monitor her and help her make good choices. More of the same things we already do everyday as parents, right!? Happy Halloween everyone.

Sounds like Eileen needs to pull the stick out of her backside - stop telling people they are raising their children wrong and learn to have a little fun. LOL
I LOVE Halloween. We have a party every year where even the adults dress up. I bought my youngest daughter's Batgirl costume (for $15) and made my daughter's green M&M costume (that is completely re-usable for about $20.) My husband's costume (a garden gnome) and my costume (a marionette puppet) are both made from stuff we already have around the house - except for the hats I made from colored poster board I bought for 25 cents each!

What is so wrong with spoiling our children once in awhile?? I mean seriously, how does a simple question of "what are your kids gonna be for halloween" turn into a lecture from a bitter ol' lady?? Stop being so negative! Enjoy life a little!!

Halloween is my favorite holiday, and kids love it! My three month old is a going to be a bat, and my older son is going as a crazy biker. I don't think celebrating Halloween is spoiling them. It's a tradition. Christmas is when they get spoiled!

My kids need new sneakers every year I'm not going to stop buying those too. Both my kids a 4 year old, and 7 month old are going to be giraffes which cost me $17 each. They will be wearing the costume to at least 4 parties well worth the investment for my 4 year old to have fun with all of his friends!

My children have costumes that cost around 800- 900 dollars and are professionally designed by a costume designer at a local university ...JUST KIDDING!!!!!
But I will say my kids do have maaaaarvlous homemade costumes limited only by imagination and household items

I let my kids pick too. My 5 year old is to be a fairy, and my 2 year old is to be a witch. I'm making thier costumes, and I think letting them pick thier own allows them to express thier own personalities, rather than spoils them. I don't let them choose which vegetables they eat at night, but I will let them choose thier own costume and will figure out how to make it from there.

I hardly think that getting your child a Halloween costume is spoiling them, Eileen.
Mine are going to be little vampire / reaper things....they picked them out themselves, so some of the outfits got a little mixed up in the translation.
All I know is that there's lots of black, red and sparkly stuff....lol.
