Monsters and Pigs (Review)

There are two characters that The Boy loves more than any others at the moment: The Gruffalo and George Pig. Therefore when I was asked by Jokers Masquerade, if I'd like to review some fancy dress costumes for him, I chose them without a second's thought!

The first thing that I need to point out is the sheer quality of this official costume: the fur is thick and doesn't pull out, the colours and attention to detail are spot on, the seams are well constructed. The size is 3-5 years and as The Boy is very tall for his age (95th percentile) he found it very comfortable with quite a bit of growing space in it. The Gruffalo costume is available for the currently reduced price of £23.99.

The second costume we were sent was a George Pig costume. I was concerned before it arrived because I've tried tabard style costumes before and they are snug to say the least. In fact I squeezed my poor one year old boy into a Very Hungry Caterpillar costume for his birthday and had to yank his arms through, and that was sized three years. So when this costume arrived (aged 3-5 years) I was really pleasantly surprised by the sizing: roomy and well constructed with a velcro fastening to halfway down the stomach. At £14.99, it's very reasonably priced.

It's roomy and there's plenty of headspace in the hood section, you'll have to excuse the fact that my son is honking George's nose, he was obsessed with it! I was really impressed with the quality of this official costume again, it's spot on for pirate George!

Now if you'll excuse me, I need to go and read The Gruffalo and The Pirate Island for the eleventy billionth time!

I was sent these products for the purpose of this review. My opinion is honest and unbiased.

    Now Joker's Masquerade is a brilliant website, have ordered from them many times and MUCH better than some others which I will certainly not use ever again 🙂

    Bet The Boy loves the costumes, I've still never seen Peppa Pig but the Gruffalo one would be a bit hit here now, if not a bit warm lol

    We obviously had the same hungry caterpillar costume. My daughter is a long thin stick of a girl, but the trousers were too long and the tabard too tight. I really don't know what measurements the supermarket who sold it were working to. Nice to see a brand that fits nicely

    I can't wait for Harry to start dressing up just like his older brothers & sister did – I have spent many a meal time with Sleeping Beauty, Tinkerbell, Buzz Lightyear, Indiana Jones & various Power Rangers!
