It's late August so you know what that means! Yes, stores have moved onto their next fun holiday (Labor Day doesn't count) and Halloween merchandise and decor is popping up everywhere. We've been casually looking for costumes for the little one and have been slightly overwhelmed by what's out there. Some have left more of a lasting impression on us.
Take the Sleepytime Turtle. We're sure that this costume has the potential to be cute, but after seeing this photo, we can't decide whether we want to curl up and sleep or curl up and cry.
Teddy Roosevelt. From the description: "Whether you'll be taking control of the Panama Canal or negotiating peace between Russia and Japan, you can be sure you'll look the part in this costume!" This costume seemed a lot more pathetic before we remembered that Robin Williams plays Roosevelt in those Museum movies. Don't get us wrong -- we'd love to be the parents of the kid who wants to be a historical figure for Halloween. That probably doesn't mean the kid isn't a lovable dork.
Humpty Dumpty. There's just something wrong about mocking a baby this much. Sure, he looks cute and will make everyone smile, but that little hat on the top of his egg head just puts the costume over the top. Way over the top.
Pizza Infant Costume. Call us crazy, but that chef's hat looks like it's been Photoshopped onto the baby's head. That strange since you could only imagine that after being dressed like a slice of pizza, there wouldn't be any struggle left in this infant to fight the hat.
Little Trees Car Freshener. Any costume that requires a big ol' registered trademark to be slapped in the middle of a baby's torso is probably not the right type of costume for your child. Enough said.
