Halloween is only 2 ½ months away! It isn’t too early to start buying costumes before they sell out. Unless your child wants to go as a ghost or you’re very crafty, buying the perfect costume is the way to go. Last year my daughter, Maya, went as a monster and my son, Will, transformed into a magician (see picture to the right). I honestly had no input on his costume; he chose it by himself. (#prouddad) Supplying him with a magician’s wand was easy-I have thousands that I use as giveaways at all of my shows. Ironically, I had to go online to choose the perfect magician costume for him. If you’re looking for a great magician costume for your child, this post will make your search easy. I am going to show you the top 4 magician costumes for kids. At the time of writing, all 4 choices are available in stock and all are very reasonably priced. I hope you enjoy the easiest Halloween costume shopping experience ever!
1) The cutest costume I found and the one that I bought is Magician Role Play Costume from Melissa and Doug. Any parent reading this probably knows about the Melissa and Doug Company. They make amazing toys and educational products for kids of all ages. The costume includes a cape with bow tie, vest with secret pocket, top hat with hidden compartment, wand, coin, rabbit, card with tricks. This costume is on their website for $29.99. Unlike Magical Dave, it doesn’t have a snake, balloon animals or gift bags, but it is really cute!
2)Prextex has its own version of the Magician’s Costume. Priced at $21.79 on Amazon, it is comparable in price to the Melissa and Doug’s costume. This costume set includes: 1 Black machine washable polyester cape, 1 black felt top hat, 1 pair of white gloves and a 12 inch magic wand. The only reason I didn’t purchase this costume was because of the color. Unlike the Melissa and Doug costume, this is only black and white. There is no red, no sparkles, no pizzazz. Although it definitely looks like a magician’s costume, it looked a little too somber for a little kid’s costume.
3) It’s been a year since I discovered Magician with Top Hat from Aeromax Toys. Although I didn’t purchase their costume (still liked Melissa and Doug’s better), finding out about this company allowed me to find many other amazing costumes. If your child ends up not wanting to be a magician, (even though you fervently encouraged the idea), Aeromax has other terrific costumes. Check out the astronaut, Fire Power Super Fire Hose with Back Pack, Astronaut Accessory Pack, and more.
4) Your aspiring magician might already have a magician’s wand, but not the other accessories. If so, you might want to purchase each item separately. However, unless you have Amazon Prime or can go directly to the store, you might end up paying a lot of money in shipping charges. Party City sells a Magician Cape for $16.99. Magic wands cost $2.99, Top Hats are $9.99, and black bow ties cost $3.99.
Halloween is even closer now than it was when you started reading this post. 🙂 If your child already has his/her heart set on being a magician, buy the costume now. My son keeps last year’s costume in his room and there are many days when I open his door in the morning and he’s doing a puzzle or playing with his Toy Story figurines while fully dressed in his costume.
It is worth noting that this is NOT a sponsored post or a paid advertisement. In the world of blogs that seems to often involve compensation or free goods–that is not the case here. I’m just providing information about different magician costumes that are available….and needed an excuse to show a picture of my cute kid 🙂
