Target Is Now Selling Costumes For Kids With Special Needs

For kids with disabilities, finding a fun Halloween costume can be a challenge. Most parents are forced to get creative and make the costumes themselves using cardboard and other craft materials.

Target is now offering a selection of costumes designed specifically for children with various special needs.

The adaptive collection features everything from princesses to pirates and includes sensory-friendly looks with flat seams and no tags.

The costumes are also designed to blend with their wheelchair or walker.

The Hyde & EEK! Boutique made sure to think of everything when creating these costumes.

They offer large openings for easy dressing and a hidden spot in the front for abdominal access.

“Every child deserves to bask in the fun of a special moment,” said Julie Guggemos, senior vice president of owned brand management and product design at Target. “We hope these creations will spark some huge smiles — and bring a little extra joy to our guests’ everyday lives.”

Guggemos said the costumes build on the success of the adaptive and sensory-friendly children’s clothing options that Target has rolled out in recent years.
