15 Toddler Halloween Costumes We Love Right Now

There’s no better time to show off your child’s creativity and interests than Halloween. Here are some of the best toddler Halloween costumes that will get your child excited for one of the most fun nights of the year.

What to look for in the best toddler Halloween costumes

When looking for toddler Halloween costumes, you’ll first and foremost want to consider sizing. Toddler sizing can run anywhere from 18M to 4T. Read costume descriptions carefully to make sure you are picking one that is in the right size range.

Make sure your child is comfortable and can walk, run, jump or do whatever it is they might want to do in their costume. While costumes like a bunch of grapes made from pinned balloons are funny and clever, they might hinder your toddler’s ability to enjoy Halloween.

Finally, consider costumes for toddlers that fit in an umbrella stroller, wagon or other similar piece of gear. Even if you have an older toddler, they may get tired from all the walking and excitement, so you’ll most likely bring a stroller along with you. Make sure the costume fits comfortably in it—accounting for straps as well. (The same goes for driving—make sure your costume fits in your toddler car seat.)
