Target Offering Costumes For Kids With Special Needs
The Halloween costume search just got a little easier for kids with disabilities.
Target is offering a selection of costumes designed specifically for children with various special needs.
The adaptive collection — which features everything from princess to pirate outfits — includes sensory-friendly looks with flat seams and no tags as well as costumes designed to blend with a wheelchair or walker. What’s more, some costumes in the Hyde & EEK! Boutique offer large openings for easy dressing and a hidden spot in the front for abdominal access.

“Every child deserves to bask in the fun of a special moment,” said Julie Guggemos, senior vice president of owned brand management and product design at Target. “We hope these creations will spark some huge smiles — and bring a little extra joy to our guests’ everyday lives.”
And, Guggemos said the Halloween styles have already proven a hit. When they became available for pre-order on Target’s website recently, several items sold out within days. But, the retailer said it’s working to get the costumes back in stock online by early October.
