Dress-up helps kids cultivate their imaginations. It is not just about looking pretty or mimicking their favorite superhero. Kids learn story telling and group play through dress-up, which will be valuable for their development. We carry, all year-round, well-made and fun costumes for kids of both genders and various ages. Along with Princess & Fairy dresses, we carry tutus, a variety of wings & capes and wands. Douglas, which is known for their plush line, has now ventured into dress-up with a variety of free flowing butterfly wings and fanciful soft fabric masks. Other fantasy costumes are chainmail shirts, knights & superhero capes, shields & swords. Two of our most popular outfits are the fireman and the astronaut suits by Aeromax. They are very realistic! If you don’t want full costumes we also have mustaches, glasses and various fun hats, all guaranteed to spark anyone’s imagination.

These are only a few of the items we carry here at Red Wagon to spark creativity and imagination. Come on in and let us help you find just the right item for your child or that birthday gift you need to pick-up.
