Polly wants a cracker… and a Butterfinger… and some candy corn…

She'll be a force to be reckoned with (or at least cuddled) in this totally sweet triceratops hat. Don't worry—the horns are filled with soft polyfil, so hurtful headbutts will go the way of the dinosaurs. Bonus: it's adjustable and comes in a sweet range of colors (Who says there weren’t pink dinosaurs?).

A Dino Tale 


This dinosaur tail will make him really feel like a mean, green reptile. Perfect for stomping around and saying "rawwwrrrrghhhh!"

This tiny mermaid tail will make a big splash on Halloween. (No need to buy the coconut bra just yet.)

More adorable than ferocious, this dino (or dragon) cape is the perfect thing to adorn your kid on Halloween as he darts from house to house in search of candy. Totally customizable in with your kid’s favorite color combo.

The Modern Princess 


There are plenty of ways you could go with this pretty pink hat, but we think if your daughter really is a little princess, she'd make an adorable Kate Middleton for Halloween.

It's the Cat's Pajamas 


Cheers to a cute black cat costume that isn't unlucky! Comes with handmade black cat ears and a black tutu skirt with removable white boa tail.

Prince Adorable 


He may burp at the dinner table or take off his pants in public, but in this sweet Prince Phillip costume (remember Sleeping Beauty?) he'll be a classy little prince. Matching crown available separately ($20).

Social Butterfly 


These glittery wings are super durable and won't crack if bent. And while we love this red, gold and bright robin’s egg blue, you can have a custom pair made in just about any color combo imaginable.

We're Hooked 


Your little one is sure to find some treasure while trick-or-treating in this sweet pirate girl tunic and bloomers set. Matching sets available for little pirate brothers, too!

For the kid who can't decide if she wants to be Super Cupcake Girl or Protector of Horses, this double-sided cape will make dress-up twice the fun. Choose from a variety of colors and patterns, like stars, shields, jewels, initials (and of course, cupcakes and horses.)

You've Got Sunshine 


This sunny baby cap will put a smile on anybody's face. (Even on a cloudy day.)

Easy Being Green


Contrary to what Kermit the Frog once said, it is easy being green—at least in this sweet frog hat and diaper cover. Perfect for a Halloween costume or baby’s first photo session.

Tutu Cute for Words 


This sweet tutu is for good witches only. We love the classic satin hat (with glitter) and the fact that it comes with its own trick-or-treating sack.

It's a Bird, It's a Plane... 


You already knew you were Supermom, and here's your chance to tell the world. (Or at least the other trick-or-treaters.) Also available for all of the Superdads out there, too!

Tater Tot


Your babe's so adorable, he even looks cute in a burlap sack! Prove it with this totally unique bag of potatoes costume. You can even put your baby's name and weight on the front to double the cuteness. Don't worry about itchy material; it looks like burlap but it's actually made from super-soft material. (And of course, don't make the drawstring around the neck too tight.)

Babies Gone Viking


Is your baby hair-challenged? Problem solved! This soft fleece Viking helmet with lovely, long blonde locks will bring out your baby's inner Norseman. Helmet can be ordered sans braids, or even made in purple (for all you Minnesota Vikings fans.)

What's Up, Small Fry?


If your two favorite things on this earth are 1) Your baby and 2) french fries, then you're in luck with these deliciously adorable overalls, which combine both. Girlify this outfit by ordering with elastic and ruffles around the legs.

Attack of the Claw!


The costume possibilities for these creepy gloves are endless—they're just begging for your kid to slip them on and start growling. Each sparkly nail is backed with a piece of sturdy wool felt, so the gloves will last through Halloween, hours of playtime, and beyond.

It's a shame to spend money on something that can only be worn once—but this knitted dragon cap will look cute on baby's head all winter long.

We love the homemade look of this crocheted Frankenstein hat. Just pair with shredded brown tee and pants, and the costume's complete.

I Scream, You Scream


All dressed up for Halloween—with a cherry on top! This sweet—in both senses of the word—costume is padded, super comfy, and reminds us of yummy sundaes at the ice-cream shop. ($32)

At the Hop


Our favorite poodle skirts are poofy enough for your girly-girl, but an elastic waistband gives them a comfy, flexible fit. Let's twist! ($24.99)

Magic Dragon


This dragon's way too cute to even think about slaying. It makes a perfect accompaniment to a sibling princess or fairy tale costume, too. ($28)

Shark Bite


Shark's are frightening in the water but not-so-scary (and even kind of huggable) when they arrive on doorsteps, ready to trick or treat.

Not only will your baby look freakin' adorable, she'll be free to run and play in this easy-to-wear onesie. Just be sure nobody comes and eats her up!

The only thing that would make this tiny Flinstones inspired costume cuter would be a felt bone hair clip. Oh wait—it comes with that? Awesome! ($30)

This super sweet dress is perfect for Halloween or endless dress-up sessions. The little pants underneath the dress make the outfit extra unique.

Dogs need Halloween tricks and treats too, and this weirdly awesome costume will make him the coolest pooch on the block.
