Roo absolutely loves dressing up. Her first costume however was not a success. I remember buying her the Gruffalo costume thinking how cute my toddler would look in it. This was not the reaction that actually happened when I put it on Roo who burst into tears, declared it itchy and refused it to wear it. Back to the shop for a refund then and a big mark in the parenting fail box.
Fast forward to halloween and her costume of choice was Frankenstein…it was never going to be a witch or a bat…not with Roo it had to be something gruesome. Now at nearly six years old her dressing up costumes consist of Spiderman, a giant spider, Frankenstein, pirates (several), a few Disney princess ones (but the tough princesses like Snow White and Merida), so when the fancy dress team at one of the leading costume companies Joke.co.uk asked us to review their kids dressing up costumes I knew exactly what she’d pick.
