Three cheers for Target!
In conjunction with Hyde and Eek! Boutique, the retail giant is offering four adaptive new costumes for children with special needs this Halloween, including two adorable options for kids who use wheelchairs.
One of the costumes, a Princess Carriage ($45), features two intricately decorated panels in gray, white and purple, fit for royalty and easily attachable to a child’s chair using “the hook-and-loop closures for a secure fit,” according to the product listing on target.com. (The princess costume itself [$20] is sold separately.)
The second wheelchair-inclusive costume allows a child to dress up as a pirate, with his or her very own ship! The chair’s panels on the $45 ensembleeven include ocean-patterned wheel covers for the full effect and go swimmingly with the adaptive pirate outfit ($25).
The store is offering two other adaptive costumes in partnership with Hyde and Eek! Boutique for children with unique sensory needs.
Both plush costumes — a shark and a unicorn — include “flat seams and no tags for an ultra-comfy feel,” Target describes, as well as detachable parts and hidden openings for ease of use and comfort.
