I’ve always thought Americans have got the right idea about Halloween: why dress your kids up as witches and vampires when they could be a tray of doughnuts or, even better, Donald Trump (an altogether different kind of doughnut). Because for young kids, Halloween shouldn’t be about being scary; it’s a time for them to dress-up in cute costumes, have fun and eat loads of sweets!
For that reason, I think there’s only one shop worth visiting for your kids non-scary Halloween costumes: TK Maxx. Beautifully made and brilliant value for money, you won’t find anything better – or sweeter – on the internet, high street, or supermarket.
Here are our 3 favourites for babies, girls and boys. Remember, each store has different selections, but there are so many great options you’ll be sure to find something they’ll love. All you have to do is go in store and have a good old-fashioned rummage to find the perfect trick or treating or Halloween party costume.
