Dressing Up

Dressing Up

When it comes to fancy-dress parties, we adults seem divided into ‘love them’ or ‘hate them’ camps, but dressing up in disguises is something pretty much all kids love to do, especially in dens. Play is at the heart of all learning, and pretend play encourages all kinds of useful life skills, including turn-taking, negotiation, empathy, and creativity.

We stock a range of dressing up costumes, from a superhero cape to some super-cute animal disguises. If your child is a little more reluctant, try some dressing up accessories instead – fuel their imaginations with a cardboard moustache or a temporary tattoo, and have fun watching where it takes them.
