Bryson loves the movie Cars. He asks to watch it almost every day. His favorite character is Lightning McQueen, of course. He calls him “Light Queen” and I thought it would be so fun is he had his own “Light Queen” costume. He can be more than a racecar driver, he gets to be the actual car. Dressing up isn’t just for little girls and costumes can be used for more than just Halloween costumes.
This Lightning McQueen costume comes with the three dimensional top and the red hat. Bry wears the red hat around even when he doesn’t have the car on, haha. It will fit most kids up to a size 6 and is an officially licensed Disney Pixar Cars II item. Costumes for boys are great for imaginative play. I’m thinking we can make our own “road” out of black construction paper, bring out Bryson’s favorite “Light Queen” car, and let him take it for a spin in his Cars 2 Lightning McQueen costume.
With more than one child, you could snatch up a couple of the pit crew costumes and let them take turns wearing Lightning McQueen. Or you could make a car out of a box and let the kids time themselves doing pit stops. Make cardboard wheels, then let them color the car to look like Lightning McQueen. The possibilities are endless and I bet you could have hours of fun!
Do your kids play with costumes or dress up? Have any fun games to share?
We received this costume for review, but no other compensation was provided. All opinions remain my own, as always.
