Summer StoryBook Review

As a little girl one of my favorite children's storybook collections was Curious George. I use to love to read about all the mischief that little monkey caused and wondered what it would be like to have a monkey of my own. Well wouldn't you know, I would grow up to have two wild monkey's (3 if you include my husband!) of my own!

Buy Costumes carries a huge selection of costumes all year long. Whether it be your favorite storybook character, Star Wars character, or Disney princess. Costumes aren't just for Halloween anymore, they're perfect for everyday dress up!

I chose the Lil Monkey Elite Collection Infant/Toddler Costume to review. My baby boy is a wild little man with a mind of his own, so I thought he'd make a perfect Curious George.

(My poor baby was grouchy because it was his nap time and because of the head piece)

As soon I took the costume out of the bag, I could tell that it's really good quality. The "fur" on the costume is very soft and the costume itself is nice and thick. During Halloween it's pretty cold where I live so I know my baby will be warm. The costume is a lined zippered bodysuit WITH leg snaps for easy diaper changing. That is pure genius! This is awesome, now I won't have to take the whole costume off just to change my sons diaper. I think the head piece is a little awkward. I don't think it will be a problem for babies, but for my son who is 1 he hated having it on and kept yanking it off, I think it squished his face.

The Lil Monkey Elite Collection costume is a little pricey at $49 but I think it's worth it for the quality and because it's super cute. I bought a cheap costume for my son last year, and you could tell, the quality wasn't very good (costume was thin) and it wasn't very cute either. I'm really happy with the Lil Monkey Elite costume and I know my son is going to get lots of compliments :)

  1. OMG SOOOO cute! I can't stand it

  2. You have a very cute Curious George!! Sounds like a great costume place. :)

  3. Lil man looks cute even when he's grouchy! The leg snaps are genius. I can't stand baby costumes that don't have them. Thanks for sharing!

  4. adorable, good to hear it's good quality too

  5. So cute! Quality things do tend to cost more, but on the upside they tend to last longer :-)

  6. Looks adorable in that costume! I can see why the head piece would be awkward. Most kids don't like the head pieces from Halloween costumes.

  7. This is really very cute pic and nice costume.I really like this costume.
