Costume Discounters Review

Halloween may be a ways off yet but kids love to dress up year round in this house! With four kids, there has been no shortage of pretend play and dressing up in our home over the years. That's one reason I was so excited when I was recently given the opportunity to review a costume. Costume Discounters offer so many costume choices it was hard to choose. From newborn to plus size adult, they have something for everyone! I really liked that their site had everything categorized, making it easy to quickly find what you are looking for.

I looked through the amazing selection of costumes before deciding who to get a costume for. I decided to look for something my 3 year old would like. He's really into pretend play now and doesn't have much to dress up in to help bring life to his chosen role. I wanted something that he could use for dress up or as a Halloween costume. There were options such as super heroes, popular cartoon characters, historic & patriotic costumes, and animals just to name a few. I decided to let him help me choose which one to get.

He is a huge fan of trains, and anything else with wheels. So, when I seen the Train Engineer Costume I just knew he was going to love it. I wasn't surprised when he picked it as the one he wanted.

He was so super excited when the costume arrived! He just HAD to have it on right then. This costume came with the striped overalls, white shirt, hat and red bandanna.  The overalls had buttons that he could easily do and undo but weren't coming undone on their own. The shirt is a pull over shirt so he could easily put it on himself. The hat has elastic to help it stay in place. I was happy to see that the costume was well made and is holding up well to his use over the past week or so. He LOVES to wear it and luckily he has room to grow in it so he'll be able to use it for a while. 

He was so excited I had a hard time getting a good picture of him in it. He was busy going around the room pretending to be on a train and pretending to sound the train horn (that's what the arm gesture's in the middle picture are).

They have the lowest prices with a price match guarantee. If you find an identical costume online for a lower price, they'll match the price PLUS take an additional 20% off! They also offer free size and product exchanges. I was very pleased with their quick shipping too. 

I have at least one more costume to buy this year and know where I'll be going to get it! There was a very cute princess dress that caught my eye that I know my youngest will be adorable in! With their low prices, I can buy all the costumes we need without breaking the bank!             

Note: I received one or more of the products mentioned above for free. Regardless, I only recommend products or services I use personally and believe will be good for my readers.
