One Week Until Halloween: Animal Costume Ideas

The final countdown starts today!  It’s the last weekend before Halloween and if you don’t have a costume for your little one yet, you better get on it!  Here are a few last minute Halloween costume ideas.

Monkey See, Monkey Doo Romper:  What’s not to love about a monkey-themed baby Halloween costume?

Frog Prince Baby Costume:  The Frog Prince costume is perfect for little boys who have an older sister going as Princess Tiana for Halloween.

Baby Dinosaur Costume: I think it would be hysterically funny to see a baby dressed as a dinosaur riding around on Kota the Robo-Triceratops.  Not likely to happen, but it would still be funny.

Kids Halloween Costumes: Disney Princess

One great thing about Disney Princess costumes is that little girls will probably try to wear them well after Halloween, which makes them something of a bargain.  Hours and hours of playtime fun from just one costume!  The downside is that little girls will probably try to wear them well after Halloween to places like school and the mall, so you may have a little trouble convincing your little princess that it’s time to put the costume away.  But these costumes are so adorable, can you really blame little girls for trying to wear them as much as possible?

More Baby Halloween Costumes: Star Wars

Baby R2D2

Star Wars costumes are the perfect solution for babies who like to cruise around town in a custom-built Star Wars stroller.  I am having a hard time deciding which one I like most:

Baby Obi Wan Kenobi

Baby Obi Wan Kenobi - Not sure how I feel about infants handling light sabers, but it is an adorable Halloween costume.

Baby Princess Leia

Baby Princess Leia - I think the “hair” alone makes the Princess Leia costume worth purchasing.

Baby Chewbacca

Baby Chewbacca - Speaking of hair, what is going on with Chewbacca’s fur here?  This costume makes Chewbacca look like he’s been through one of those weird poodle grooming sessions.  And yet as much as this offends the Star Wars fan in me, I somehow find it irresistably cute.  Go figure.

Halloween is Coming: The Costume Countdown Begins

Tom Arma Flamingo

Halloween is only 58 days away, so it’s time to start thinking about ideas for baby Halloween costumes. More specifically, it’s time to start thinking about what costume you can convince your tot to wear that won’t induce a temper tantrum. Here are a few suggestions to kick off your search:

Tom Arma Gingerbread Baby

The 2008 Tom Arma Halloween Costume Signature Collection has several costumes that can do double duty as adorable outfits for Christmas parties, like an Elf costume, a “Snowbaby” costume and a Santa costume.

Wall-E Costume

Older kids are going crazy for this Wall-E Costume. Shop early for Wall-E costumes to avoid disappointment and panic on Halloween.

Infant Elvis costume

Vegas-bound babies will love the Elvis costume, which they can also wear while performing drive-thru weddings. Hail to The King, baby!

Stay tuned for more Halloween costume updates in the next few weeks!

Baby Clothing Recall: Taggies Sleep ‘n Play Infant Garments

Taggies Sleep 'n Play

A voluntary recall has been issued for Taggies Sleep ‘N Play Infant Garments because the snap closures pose a potential choking threat. Luckily no injuries were reported prior to this recall, but it is always better to be safe than sorry. The two Sleep ‘n Play styles affected in the recall were sold between June 2007 through May 2008 at places like Dillards and Nordstrom and have the code “RN #27829″ printed on the garment’s care label. The Taggies licensee who manufactured these styles, Rashti & Rashti, is offering a refund, so check out their website for details.

I have to commend Taggies for their quick action on this recall and their overall commitment to children’s safety. The website has a full page of safety information and resources, in addition to a link for recall information on the homepage. It gives me a lot more confidence in their pledge to provide safe baby products.

There have been a few other recent notable recalls that I haven’t had a chance to blog about, so please check out the US Consumer Product Safety Commission’s June 2008 Recalls and Product Safety News when you have a chance. Here are some highlights:

eStyle Recalls Mini Chef Toy Kitchens Due to Choking and Tip-Over Hazards

Stanley Furniture Recalls Cribs Due to Entrapment Hazard

Nordstrom Recalls Girls’ Sandals Due to Choking Hazard

Children’s Merry-Go-Rounds Sold Exclusively at Toys R Us Recalled by Pacific Cycle Due to Fall Hazard

Simmons Kids Recalls Crib Mattresses Due to Entrapment Hazard

Croc Attack!


I am a little surprised to learn how dangerous Crocs shoes can be for kids. 77 escalator entrapment “incidents” in the US alone??? Are you kidding me??? With their bright colors, slip-resistant soles and fashion-repellent aesthetic, they seemed (at least to me) like the ideal kids’ shoes. Guess I was wrong.

At least I am consoled by this awesome discovery in kids’ shoes: Pediped footwear!


The shoes are adorable, and they are recommended by podiatrists. Best of all, I called Pediped and they have not had any problems with their shoes getting stuck in escalators.

Funny Baby Clothes

Lobster Baby

This post about Ten Weird Baby Outfits on Divine Caroline is totally cracking me up. I know Halloween is months away, but I have a total soft spot for babies in ridiculous baby clothes. Part of me feels a little bad, knowing these kids will grow up and have to deal with friends and loved ones teasing them about these outfits.

But all that said, seriously, what is cuter than a kid in a ridiculous costume?

Muscles baby!

Muscle Beach Baby

Elephant Head

Nice Elephant “trunk”….maybe they should just cut that off and call it a mouse costume?

Baby Oompa Loompa - what’s not to love?

Hot Mommas!

I found this great site called OC Mamma that is definitely worth a look. Their organic baby clothes are all currently 20% off, and they have some really cute things.

I am in love with this Puff Sleeve Onesie:

And this Spaghetti Strap Tank Top:

Both are adorable and on sale for $18.

OC Mamma also has a lot of great resources, like a list of area Mom’s Clubs and a Girl Talk Forum where moms can connect. Definitely worth a look!
