My two like most children love to dress up. They have brilliant imaginations and can make any situation a game, and every time they dress up they have a new imaginary scenario going on. I think the boys can never have too much dressing up outfits so when I was contacted my Tickled Pink Fancy Dress and asked if we would be interested in trying out their new animal capes I just knew the boys would love them.
The parcel turned up just the next day and I couldn't wait to open it with them so they could get dressing up. The capes that they sent us were green dinosaur ones which were brilliant for the boys as they spend most their days running around the house roaring at each other, these capes would just make it more life like to them!
They are brilliant and not your average capes. They have a hood for the dinosaurs face and it has a tail, not just an ordinary tail a full on filled tail and silver spikes from the head to the tail. We were sent two sizes, one 18 - 36 months and one 4 - 8 years. The sizes were just right for the boys and even with Noah turning 3 in less than 2 months this is going to fit him for some time yet. There are holes in the sides of the capes so the boys can put their arms so they can really get into the role of dinosaur without having the keep moving their arms out from under the cape, brilliant idea. The only thing I would say is the holes are a little on the small size. At the moment they are ok but it the boys want to wear them with a jumper I think they will struggle to get their arms through.
On the hood there is eyes, spikes as I said above and teeth. The hoods fit perfectly on the boys heads and aren't too big that they fall over their eyes or small that they don't stay up. They are washable on a 40 degree wash which is a must with children.
The capes have been worn every day since they arrived and I think this will continue for some time. I believe dress up and make believe in children is so important for their development and play.
The dinosaur capes retail on Tickled Pink Fancy Dress's website for £22.99 and I think this is great value as they are a fantastic product and very durable.
The boys think they are 'Roarsome'!!
