Has your kid picked out her Halloween costume yet? If you have older kids, well, then…stock up on zombie clothing and facepaint. But if you happen to have a preschooler, you can expect her to change her mind at least a half-dozen times before October 31st. (Minnie Mouse….no, wait Arielle…okay, okay Minnie!) Sound familiar? Just as unpredictable as your child’s temperament is the weather. I can remember Halloweens past when my older sister went to great lengths to turn me into a Rubik’s Cube, a ladybug, even a stick of gum…only to have her handiwork covered up by a bulky coat. While lots of costumes for little kids are now available in heavier fleece one pieces, they’re not exactly ideal for climates contending with global warming. So, if your preschooler has decided she’d like to be a zebra, leopard or giraffe this Halloween, or if she just wants to take a walk on the wild side, you can add a little warmth (and spice) to her get-up without compromising her style. The LaLoops Minky Cape is a reversible poncho that keeps kids covered while complementing their costume. Without the hassle of zippers, snaps or sleeves, this printed cape is easy on, easy off and can be flipped over for a solid color that works with any style of clothing. And because it’s not bulky, it works great in strollers when you’re cruising around the neighborhood. Even after all the candy has been given out, this poncho can be added to the dress-up bin or broken out for the holidays or other special occasion.
