The 15 Best Baby Halloween Costumes on Amazon, According to Hyperenthusiastic Reviewers

By

Here at the Strategist, we like to think of ourselves as crazy (in the good way) about the stuff we buy, but as much as we’d like to, we can’t try everything. Which is why we have People’s Choice, in which we find the best-reviewed (that’s four-to-five-star reviews and lots of ’em) products and single out the most convincing. Here, because it’s getting close to Halloween, we’ve chosen the best baby costumes on Amazon, according to the people — we’ve previously picked a perfect Flintstones costume and great pop-culture costumes, too. (Note that reviews have been edited for length and clarity.)

Best Monkey Baby Costume

4.6 stars, 646 reviews

“I bought this for my son as his very first Halloween costume when he was 8 months old. This is seriously the cutest costume ever. It is super soft and fuzzy, perfect for my little guy on a cold Halloween night. He got so many compliments as he was wearing it. It fit him so perfectly, too. It comes with a tail, monkey hat, and feet, along with the monkey costume, so it’s such a great deal. I really couldn’t be happier with my son’s first costume. I look back on pictures from it and can’t believe how cute he looked!”

Best Piglet Baby Costume

4.2 stars, 191 reviews

“I got the 18–24-month-old size large. My 26-month-old daughter is short for her age, so the arms and legs were long on her, as expected. Everyone who saw her yesterday said it was their favorite costume of the night! It fit her great. We cut the footies off and just wore sneakers for easier walking. She was such a ham the whole night! The headpiece surprisingly was kept on the entire DAY (even at day care), and didn’t seem to bother her one bit. Definitely get this while they are young! We convinced her she was PRINCESS Piggy. Next year, she will expect to wear a real princess dress costume.”

Best Inmate Baby Costume

4.4 stars, 154 reviews

“Our little guy was so cute as a convict! Everyone raved about his ‘tattoos’ and loved the idea of a sweet baby inmate. Overall, the costume was a great fit, decent quality (comparable to most costumes), and a fair price. Easy to get a 9-month-old in and out of, easy to clean, quick and simple costume without mess or fuss.”

Best Gnome Baby Costume

4.3 stars, 219 reviews

“I LOVE this costume. Very well-made. High quality. I die laughing when I put this on my 14-month-old. I got the 12–18-month size for him and it fits great, with just a little room to grow into. The hat with beard is amazing. It fits his head perfectly. It stands up well on its own. I seriously cannot brag enough about this costume. I just hope it isn’t too warm on Halloween, as it is pretty well-insulated. Oh, and the shoes. Hilarious. You have to get this costume if you come across it!! I highly recommend!”

Best Lobster Baby Costume

4.6 stars, 483 reviews

“My son and daughter-in-law dressed my 8-month-old granddaughter in the lobster costume, and my son carried her around in a big stock pot as he wore a chef’s hat and apron. My daughter-in-law walked alongside with her lobster bib on and eating utensils. People stopped them all over our neighborhood to snap a picture, and one Facebooked, ‘Best Family Costume.’ This little costume — and the little girl who was dressed in it — made trick or treat so enjoyable!”

Best Dragon Baby Costume

4.6 stars, 598 reviews

“Adorable! My 2-year-old son wore this for Halloween and everyone loved it. I was pleasantly surprised at how well it was constructed and stood up to being worn multiple times (at least four times over the course of one week). I like that my son was even able to walk around with the feet on (outside and inside). My only warning would be that this does run a little large. I bought a size down for my son and it fit him perfectly.”

Best NASA Baby Costume

4.8 stars, 1,355 reviews

“Love it!! My son looked sooooo cute for Halloween. He is 12 months. I ordered the 18-months one, as some reviews said it ran small. It fit great with lots of room to grow and play.”

Best Tiger Baby Costume

4.2 stars, 673 reviews

“This was exactly what I needed. It was true to size and totally adorable. My 21-month-old wore it three times, for a few hours each, and it held up just fine. He objected to the ‘hat’ for a minute, then forgot all about it and seemed totally comfortable. Some other reviewers were dissatisfied that there was no tail; I didn’t mind at all — he was still unmistakably a tiger, and I think it would have just gotten in the way and led to the whole thing ripping if it got caught. Totally recommend! Note: We did not have him walk outdoors with it — only indoors. If one is buying this for trick-or-treating, I’m not sure how long the feet would hold up.”

Best Lion Baby Costume

4.1 stars, 549 reviews

“LOVE this costume!! It fit perfectly. My son is in between 18 months and 24 months. We live in the Midwest, so this is perfect for the cold weather. The outside fabric is made out of fleece, and the inside has a silky fabric. The tail is attached via Velcro and has a bendable metal wire in it, so you can pose it however you want. It sits high enough that he isn’t sitting on it.

The costume zips up the back, but also has snaps in the legs for easy diaper changes. The feet of the costume are separate little slippers, which are plenty big enough to put on over shoes for added warmth. This costume is the nicest costume I’ve seen. I’m so glad I didn’t buy any of the costumes I have seen in a variety of stores.”

Best Owl Baby Costume

4.7 stars, 343 reviews

“Looks so adorable on my 21-month-old son, and it is evidently comfortable because he didn’t mind it at all. I’m sure it will be nice and warm come Halloween this year. It is as vibrant and shiny (the brown part) as it looks in the picture. I’m so happy to have a costume idea not so overused. It isn’t too large for him, but there is still room to put a long-sleeved onesie underneath, so I know for sure he will be good to go. Good buy.”

Best Panda Baby Costume

4.3 stars, 290 reviews

“This costume was better than expected. My child was 3 months old at the time (85th percentile) and this fit perfectly. She is pretty fussy when it comes to putting on clothes, but she loved wearing this. I think it has something to do with how soft the inside is. She loves holding stuffed animals, so I assume this was like wearing one. I highly recommend this costume.”

Best Elvis Baby Costume

4.2 stars, 192 reviews

“Stinkin’ adorable! He got so many compliments. Outfit does kind of run a little big, but that’s good, because it’s thin. You’ll want a layer or two under the costume anyway, depending on your weather. I took a pair of the gold aviator sunglasses and tied rubber bands through the holes in the arms, held it fine that night.”

Best Turkey Baby Costume

4.7 stars, 207 reviews

“Adorable! Lined and super comfy for baby; he fell asleep and was snug as a bug. Used it as an early Halloween outfit: I was chef; he was turkey. Got so many compliments and will use it for Halloween and again for Thanksgiving, as well as pictures. Tail buttons on and is sturdy, costume snaps at bottom for easy changing. The turkey feet stayed on well enough — didn’t fall off at all!”

Best Monster Baby Costume

4.5 stars, 427 reviews

“We absolutely loved this costume! It fit well and true to size. My grandson got tons of oohs and aahs over his costume — it’s adorable! It’s fairly warm, but we lucked out with a cooler night for Halloween in Virginia. He still puts the ‘feet’ on and wears them for slippers sometimes. For Halloween, he wore shoes under the slippers — they just barely fit over them, but it worked for us since he was walking at an outside trunk-or-treat event.”

Best ‘Where the Wild Things Are’ Baby Costume

4.4 stars, 204 reviews

“If you’re unsure about this outfit, don’t be … it’s perfect! Super comfortable and soft.Not too thin, not too thick. I like that it’s a hoodie style, so my kid doesn’t want to rip it off like so many other costumes that had a detached headpiece. I ordered the 12–18-months one, and my son is 30.5 inches tall and 23 pounds, and it fit perfectly.”
