Fall is here, and though this year is certainly different, that doesn’t mean your kids can’t get all dressed up in their Halloween costumes, carve pumpkins, eat some (too much?) candy, and have a blast. There’s always one question that haunts parents everywhere this time of year: what should my kid be for Halloween? No matter who or what your kid wants to be this Halloween (be it a princess, a robot, a dinosaur, or a dino-robot-princess) we’ve got great ideas about how to turn your kids favorite ride-on toy into the perfect D.I.Y. Halloween costume!
The iconic Cozy Coupe® has been around for more than 40 years, bringing joy to generations of families. Little tikes makes tons of other ride-ons that can transform into parts of your kids costume too, from trucks and carriages to a race car and fire truck! Bonus points: when your kids get tired, you can easily push them around the neighborhood in their costume! Here are some ways to make your kids’ ride-on part of the perfect costume this Halloween:
If you’re looking to get both a new ride-on for your kids AND a costume at the same time, check out the new Fire Rescue Cozy Truck. This awesome-looking Cozy Truck includes a firefighter’s helmet, a working water pump, and a pretend safety vest so kids can role play as firefighters or have a Halloween costume that matches their new ride-on. Try adding in a Rescue Tales™ Dalmatian for a cute touch to complete your kid’s firefighter costume.
The all-new Superstar Cozy Coupe also includes some cute role play accessories for your movie star in the making. Your kids will love the included purse, brush, and more accessories that let them look and feel glamorous while your family is out trick-or-treating. Complete the look with a colorful dress, sweet shoes, and gigantic sunglasses. Oh, and make sure you roll out the red carpet too!
If your kids love playing Cops & Robbers, take their role play to the next level with the Police Cozy Coupe. The included vest, helmet, badge, and pretend radio make for an excellent Halloween costume right out of the box.
Every princess needs a chariot to take her to the ball. Let your princess ride in style by turning her Princess Horse and Carriage into the ultimate chariot. Make a large paper crown the same color as her dress and tape it to the top of your kids’ carriage to add a touch of magic. Make her a matching crown to complete the look.
Got a superhero flying around your house? Grab some fabric and give your Cozy Coupe a matching cape and mask! Your heroes will feel as amazing as they look when they ride in to save the day in the perfect costume!
Want to make your kids’ Halloween costume into a D.I.Y. project? Grab a few cardboard boxes and make cut outs (like a dinosaur’s tail for your Dino Cozy Coupe, airplane wings, or anything else you can imagine) to match your kid’s awesome costume.
Turn your kids’ Cozy Coupe into a papier mâché jack-o’-lantern. Add a wire frame to give the pumpkin shape a nice structure and then add some papier mâché to make their Cozy Coupe into a giant, rolling jack-o’-lantern! Paint it orange, and voila: it’s the most stylish, yet comfortable, costume ever!
Make a cardboard sail, cloth eyepatch, and paper towel telescope and turn your kids’ Cozy Truck into a pirate ship! Your kids can be scallywags roaming the high seas while they roll around in comfort.
Add battery-powered pumpkin, bat or spider string lights to your kids’ stroller or Perfect Fit™ 4-in-1 Trike for extra Halloween flare. That way your kids’ trike can light the way while they’re trick-or-treating.
Take black pipe cleaners, pool noodles, and other materials you have handy to make your Cozy Coupe some fuzzy spider legs! Nothing gets kids into the Halloween spirit quite like a spooky spider car. Stretch a little cotton webbing over you’re the legs and body of the car to add a spiderweb as the finishing touch!
Bust out the paint, and let your kids creativity fly as they design their own unique D.I.Y. Cozy Coupe to be a part of their costume. You kids can give their D.I.Y. Cozy Coupe tiger stripes, a metallic finish so it looks like a robot, or paint it like a sweet race car. Your kids will love rolling around in their custom new ride.
