Inflatable costumes can bring imaginative play to the next level. Operated with a built-in battery operated fan inside the costume, the costumes usually have a hole for your child’s head that comes to about mid-neck on the costume. Once inflated, these costumes can take up substantial space—especially if they include a tail—so these can be better used for outdoor play. Batteries will run out with continuous use, so make sure you have a spare pair if you’re planning on wearing an inflatable costume for a substantial amount of time. Even though inflation only takes several minutes, this may be too long for some wiggly kids, so best to save inflatable costumes for an event, rather than free-for-all playtime in the costume box.
