10 Perfect Fancy Dress Costumes For Young Children

There are countless Children’s Fancy Dress Costumes around and it can take a while to find the best one. When stuck for ideas, here’s what parents and guardians could pick:


There have been many costumes that Batman has worn. Not only can a child wear a costume that Christian Bale wore in Christopher Nolan’s trilogy but also what Adam West donned in the 1960’s TV series. With an iconic grey design, a boy can fight crime when wearing this costume.


Having appeared in each ‘Star Wars’ film, every boy has pretended to fight against his friends using a light sabre – by purchasing a Jedi costume, he will look just like Obi-Wan Kenobi.

Darth Vader

One of the main characters from the original ‘Star Wars’ trilogy that was released in the 1970’s and 1980’s, Darth Vader has an instantly recognisable costume. With a black helmet and a black cape, a Darth Vader costume can be worn at fancy dress parties throughout the year.


Young children will look very cute when they’re wearing a Tigger costume. Soft and furry, a Tigger costume also comes with a tail which a child can pretend to bounce on.


Both boys and girls can pretend to be a pirate. By purchasing a plastic sword and a pirate hat if it isn’t included, this costume will be complete.

British soldier

There are many types of British soldier costumes that a child can wear, such as a WWI outfit. As a WWI solder’s costume can be worn at fancy dress parties throughout the year, it isn’t just ideal for Halloween but also Christmas. Available in a variety of sizes, this particular British soldier costume can be worn by both younger and older siblings.

Robin Hood

Having appeared in many movies, such as an animated Disney film of the same name in 1953, Robin Hood continues to be popular with young boys. So that a Robin Hood costume is complete, purchase a bow and arrow set if not included.


Many Spiderman movies have been released, such as ‘The Amazing Spider-Man’. Starring Andrew Garfield as Peter Parker, this movie is popular with children of all ages. By choosing a Spiderman costume that is similar to what Andrew Garfield wore, a young boy will look just like him.


One of the most beautiful Disney princesses of all time, Cinderella is understandably popular with young girls. A Cinderella costume can be worn not just by toddlers but also teenagers. Before buying a Cinderella costume for many children, check that it is stocked in a variety of sizes so that another order doesn’t have to be placed elsewhere.

Hermione Granger

Along with Harry Potter and Ron Weasley, Hermione Granger is a cherished character that J.K. Rowling created. A Hermione Granger fancy dress costume normally consists of a long robe, a white shirt, a tie and a wand for casting spells. Available in many sizes, it is one of the most widely chosen Children’s Fancy Dress Costumes around.
