Halloween won’t happen for over 3 months from now, but Target is already out with their “Hyde and Eek! Boutique” selection. However, Target has unveiled a group of costumes made for children in wheelchairs. Here’s a report.
Wheelchair users are known for their crafty handmade Halloween costumes, often because there are no ready-made options at retailers for kids who use wheelchairs. This year, Target wants to make costume shopping a little easier for kids with disabilities. Savvy Target fans discovered the retailer’s new Hyde and Eek! Boutique Halloween items online, including four adaptive costume designs.
Target’s adaptive princess costume includes a long pink gown and crown. The dress opens in the back for ease of dressing and is designed to be wheelchair-friendly. A wheelchair cover, which is sold separately, transforms the princess’s wheelchair into a royal carriage for the night of the ball. The carriage uses hook-and-loop closures to securely attach to most wheelchairs.
Similarly designed to be easy to wear and comfortable in a wheelchair, Target’s pirate costume includes everything you need to transform for the high seas, including vest, pants, eye patch and hat. The wheelchair cover, also sold separately, is designed like a pirate ship with a black flag and ocean-themed wheel covers.
