Halloween enthusiasts with disabilities can now get adaptive Halloween costumes at the retail giant, Target.
CNN is reporting that Target’s Hyde and Eek! Boutique unveiled four costumes that children who use wheelchairs can easily wear to take part in their holiday fun. The announcement came Thursday, a few months before Halloween.
One of the costumes transforms the chair into a purple princess carriage with just the tap of a wand! The other, turns the apparatus into a pirate ship, with a Jolly Roger flag and waves for the wheels.
The matching wheelchair covers are sold separately. CNN adds that there are also two new costumes with flat seams and no tags, for children with sensory issues: a shark and a unicorn.
According to the online store descriptions, they were “thoughtfully designed with openings in the back that lend ease of dressing, which retail for $45 each. In addition to the wheelchair-friendly costumes, the new line also includes sensory-friendly shark and unicorn costumes to accommodate kids with sensitivities. Both the shark and the unicorn feature “an allover plush construction for a soft and cozy feel,” “flat seams with no tags,” “a hidden opening in the front pocket for convenient abdominal access” and the option to remove attachments like hoods. Each retails for $30, CNN adds.
Target’s latest product line appears to be the first such costume offering from a major retailer
