When I became a mum, I will confess that a small part of me squealed at the thought of being able to dress The Boy up at specific times of the year; Hallowe'en and Christmas especially. He happily dressed up for his first two Christmasses, was incredibly reluctant last year and I had high hopes that he might have changed his mind for this Christmas.
Luckily when Jokers' Masquerade asked me if I'd like to review a Christmas costume for him, I tested the water and he was more than enthusiastic about it. He didn't stop asking when the nice man was going to send him his Christmas outfit and when it finally arrived, he was overjoyed.
This cute snowman costume is an all-in-one white jumpsuit with two black fabric 'buttons' sewn on the front, and yellow snowflakes embroidered on the torso. The jumpsuit does up with a few velcro fastenings on the back at the neckline, and The Boy finds it really easy to put it on and take it off himself. There is a red and green striped scarf made of double-folded fabric, and a black, floppy hat with green holly leaves red berries sewn on.
With a price of £10.99 (although it is currently on sale for £8.99), quite frankly this is an excellent price for such a good quality item. I've paid a similar price for a supermarket outfit which was badly made and a poor fit. I normally have to buy the next size up for The Boy, and opted for the medium (5-7 years) size based on past experience. Luckily the PR asked me to double-check the dress size against The Boy's measurements and the small (3-5 years) is the perfect fit for my tall boy, with plenty of room for it to be worn again next Christmas.
The Boy is completely delighted with this costume and doesn't stop asking if he can wear it, while trying to remember the lyrics to Frosty the Snowman. And that is endorsement enough for me!
I was sent this product for the purpose of this review, my opinion is honest and unbiased.
