Target Releases An Entire Line Of Halloween Costumes For Kids In Wheelchairs

Lex Gabrielle 17 Jul 2019

Every year it seems like companies release products for the fall earlier and earlier. As soon as July 4th passes, we can expect shelves to be flooded with orange, red, and brown decorations — some stores even putting out pumpkin decorations for Halloween already.

While many of us oppose seeing the change of season so early in the summer, there are some moments worth celebrating.

This week, Target released some of their Halloween costume lines, including a new section specifically made and tailored to children in wheelchairs.

Not only is it hard to tailor clothes specifically for children in wheelchairs, it's hard when holidays like Halloween come about and your kids want to wear the same costumes as everyone else — but, can't.

Now, Target is introducing an entire line of costumes specifically made for kids with wheelchairs.

Target

They are calling the entire collection targeted for these children the Adaptive Costume Collection. Each costume comes with accessories that specifically fit the child's wheelchair.

While they only have two options right now, each costume comes with everything your child could ever need.

Target

There is one costume marketed for boys and one costume marketed for girls, but each can be used for either gender of your choosing.

The first costume is a pirate, and it comes with a wheelchair cover that is meant to look like a ship.

The wheelchair cover features full, colorful, realistic designs that also incorporate the shapes and sizes of wheelchairs (like here, with the water covering the wheels).

Marketed for girls is a princess costume.

The costume also comes with a chair cover, too.

The dress itself for the princess costume retails for $20, while the chair cover retails for $45.

Target is selling both costumes, ready to order, on their website — and, the earlier you order them, the earlier they will ship!
