Pretty much nothing on this planet is more endearing than the iconic Fred Rogers of Mister Roger's Neighborhood, but the main character of the animated spinoff of your favorite childhood show, Daniel Tiger's Neighborhood, does come close. Daniel Tiger is the 4-year-old character that steals the hearts of toddlers and preschoolers everywhere with his charming demeanor and can-do attitude. He can take even the most complex of feelings and turn them into a manageable kid-friendly tune, which is why Daniel Tiger Halloween costumes are at the top of most kids' costume wish list.
Although Daniel is the show's most popular character, kids who love the supporting cast of Daniel's family and friends can sport costumes with their friendly faces as well. While big box retailers may only regularly carry Daniel costumes and unofficial costumes in the spirit of the other characters, you can find several options that more closely resemble characters like Katerina Kittycat, Prince Wednesday, and Miss Elaina on sites like Etsy. Another option when it comes to Daniel Tiger's Neighborhood costumes is to grab an accessory like a mask or headpiece and add your own clothing to the mix to make your kids resemble their favorite characters as much as possible. No matter which route you choose, your kids are sure to love wearing one of these Daniel Tiger Halloween costume options this year.
