This year there are a couple of new trends to hit the market and also some old favorites.

Female superheros are not just for adult women, your little one can become Super Women in a flash.  The costume can be found at most retail stores, Wal-Mart, Target, Party City and Spirit Halloween.  If you’re crafty, you can easily make your own.

If you have dressed up as a Troll for Halloween back in the day, well they are back for 2017.   What’s more, the costume works for kids big and small, so you can make your Troll costume a family affair.

Belle from Beauty and the Beast is a timeless favorite.  It’s popularity stems off of the Disney live-action movie released earlier this year.

Superheros for boys is always a safe choice.  From Batman, to Spider Man and all heroes in between you can’t miss.  This year’s most popular toy comes to life with this new Halloween costume. Adjustable shoulder straps provide a custom fit on this fidget spinner as seen in the top photoIt even spins by turning it with your hands; $25 at

Emojis are big this year.  Go figure; we use them every day.  Not sure how I feel about this one, but the  poopular brown emoji comes to life in this inflatable costume. One size fits most; $34.99 at  There is also the winking tongue emoji. This playful emoticon suit is sleeveless with a pullover style. Pants and shoes sold separately.  Also available at Spirit Halloween.

My personal favorite is this little guy.  Charlie Brown’s beloved pet beagle, Snoopy, is sure to be an adorable costume for your toddler. It includes a hooded jumpsuit and booties. Available in 2T and 3T/4T; $29.74 at

Whatever your choice is, make it a fun and safe evening.  Happy Halloween.
