The Pickle has enjoyed reading about snowmen in his
Christmas books over the last few weeks, he’s watched The Snowman DVD and he’s
driven his toy cars through a tray of fake snow!So, he was very excited when Joker’s Masquerade sent a Cute Snowman Costume for us to review!
The costume consists of a white all in one suit with big
black buttons and yellow snowflakes on the front, plus a stripy scarf and a
black hat with a holly trim.The toddler
size is recommended for age 1-2 years but was fine for The Pickle (who is 2) as
he only has little legs and the next size up (3-5 years) would have been way
too big!In fact, the costume was fairly
generous and allowed for a layer of clothing underneath, which is very useful
at this time of year!
The Pickle enjoyed dressing up as a “Noman” (as he kept
saying!) and although he wasn’t a fan of the hat (that didn’t stay on for long
unfortunately), he kept the suit on for the afternoon and even helped to
decorate (and attempt to un-decorate) the Christmas tree while wearing it!
The fabric is quite thin, but the overall quality of the
costume is good.I’m not sure if it will
survive too many Christmases but I would
imagine The Pickle will have grown out of it by next year anyway, and for £8.99
I do think it’s very good value.The
only downside was the fastening on the back – there is a split from the back of
the neck to half way down the back, which fastens at the top with a small piece
of Velcro.A longer piece of Velcro would
be ideal, as there is a bit of an open gap at the back which doesn’t look
Overall, I think the costume looks very sweet, it is easy to
put on (even over a layer of clothing) and The Pickle enjoyed wearing it and
being a snowman… hopefully he’ll soon grow to love the hat too!
