Whether your kids know what they want to be this holiday or not, Amazon has dozens of children’s Halloween costumes that have outstanding reviews and are all reasonably priced. Many of them come at a lower cost than you would find at a Halloween store, but also have hundreds or thousands of positive reviews to make sure you get your money’s worth.
Take a look at just some of the dozens of children’s Halloween costumes available this season on Amazon.
Prextex Kids Doctor Halloween Costume for Toddlers ($22.99)
Priced at $23, this Kids Doctor Halloween Costume for Toddlers comes in just one size, but fits most children between the ages of 4-8. Made of 100% cotton, the costume includes a medical scrubs-style outfit with a shirt, pants and hat, plus a variety of accessories including a stethoscope, otoscope, thermometer, blood pressure gauge, scissors, injection needle and bandage.
With more than 1,400 reviews, the costume has a rating of 4.5 out of 5 stars. Customers say it is good for the price and good quality. While some customers say it runs large for most toddlers, others say it fits perfectly, so you’ll want to check the reviews for guidance. Some buyers also mention that you’ll need to put some layers on under it if your child is wearing it while trick-or-treating and you live in a state where it’s chilly on Halloween, as it is not very warm.
One customer who gave the costume a full 5 stars says it’s also great for playing dress-up year round, not just on Halloween.
“Perfect dress-up costume for my son,” they wrote. “He loves that it looks so real, and that it comes with so many accessories!”

If your kids love being spooky for Halloween, this Spooktacular Creations Child Unisex Glowing Eyes Reaper Costume is right up their alley!
Priced at $32, the costume includes a black robe with cut-up sleeves, a black see-through faceless hood, creepy long and pointed finger gloves, a chain, a toy scythe and fade-in fade-out light-up glowing glasses. The glasses will make it appear as if your child has red glowing eyes, but the costume can be worn without the glasses.
Made of 100% polyester, the costume comes in sizes small-extra large for children ages 5-14. With more than 945 customers weighing in, this product gets a 4.5 out of 5-star rating.

“I bought this costume in toddler size for my 2 1/2-year-old son. He is probably average in size and the costume fits him without being too big or too small,” Stef wrote. “To say my son loves this costume is an understatement. He wears the cape and belt every day, all day, taking it off only for nap and bedtime.”

The air pump requires a portable power bank or four AA batteries, which are not included, so make sure you pick some up before Halloween if you order the costume.
