There has been a struggle that often does not get much attention when a child needs to use a wheelchair. It is the lack of Halloween costumes that are commercially available. Although that may be true, parents have done a fantastic job of crafting those costumes and making them awesome.
Target is now getting involved by offering parents and children who have a need for adaptive costumes a line that is designed to help those with sensory needs or who are confined to a wheelchair. Many options are available, including princesses, dragons, mermaids, and more.
The Princess Carriage Costume
You will pay $20 for the costume and $35 for the wheelchair decorations but the end result is fantastic. Included in the decoration kit are wheel covers, side covers, and a crown.
Robot Halloween Costume
Target is also offering an adaptive robot costume for $30. It’s wheelchair friendly, although matching accessories are not available.
Included in the costume are pants, a longsleeved top, and a helmet. Easy dressing is possible thanks to openings in the back.
Pirate Ship Halloween Costume
The pirate ship Halloween costume wheelchair set is available at Target for $35. Included in the kit are a black Jolly Roger flag, decorative colors, and some interesting detailing.
A pirate costume is not included, but Target has one for $25.
Mermaid Halloween Costume
Target is also offering an adaptive mermaid costume and wheelchair covers. You will pay $35 for the wheelchair kit and an additional $30 for the dress.
If you want to save some money and take your creativity for a spin, you could always buy the wheelchair kit and make your own costume.SKM: below-content placeholder
