Kids Fancy Dress Costumes For Super Heroes
‘We can be heroes', as the song goes. Cosplay or "dressing up" as we used to say, is an important part of your child's development. Wanting to emulate their heroes is very much a part of that. This range of Super Hero fancy dress costumes nicely complements our first range of costumes here.
Why do kids love to dress up?
It is not entirely clear when children started to wear fancy dress costumes, but imaginative (or pretend) play has always been a part of a child’s development. From 18 to 24 months, toddlers start to notice what you do and will mimic your actions, like talking on an imaginary telephone. They are pretending to be you!
Very soon, your child will take on more complex roles. These will be people they have seen, probably on the television, but sometimes in real life, like when they went to the seaside or on a boat trip and saw the ship's Captain.
At first, they may be generic roles, like a fireman or a nurse (not always gender-specific, though) and then they may become a particular character, like Bob the Builder or Anna from Frozen.
These days, there are lots of fancy dress ideas for kids. Baby Knows Best has a great range covering virtually every generic occupation for girls and boys, or, you can choose a Sci-Fi character fancy dress costume like Deadpool. We also have a range of Halloween costumes too.
Whatever the future holds for your kids, you can pretty much guarantee that it won't be what they want to be right now, so let them imagine, just for this short time what it would be like to be a nurse or a fireman, or a doctor, construction worker, policeman or woman, or an Admiral on board a ship. .
