Make sure that you look for softer materials that are less likely to scratch their skin or merit complaints after a long night of trick or treating.
  • Avoid unnecessary attachments – For toddlers and early walkers, having additional components to their costumes likes hats, masks, and the like can prove to be more of a challenge than one might think. Excessive accessories can easily distract a toddler while they’re out in their costume and ultimately be the root of unnecessary tumbles or accidents while trick or treating.
