Scary or cute? Monster or mummy? Halloween costumes come in all shapes, sizes and pointy ears this year with a big selection for toddlers and kids - and even spooky outfits for newborn babies.


Remember with babies and toddlers, costumes may not be the most comfy to wear, so don't expect your child to stay dressed as a pumpkin all day. Several toddler outfits are all-in-onesies, which may mean some deft work when it's time to change a nappy - plus if you're potty training, your child's going to need a little bit more time to undress!
