Halloween should be inclusive for everyone and retailers like Etsy, Amazon, Target, and Spirit Halloween have made it their business to offer a wide range of costumes for children who use wheelchairs, whether they want to be a princess or a pirate (or even a monster truck). Some of these costumes are made to fit your little trick-or-treater's body, and some are made as wheelchair covers. No matter what your child’s needs are, these wheelchair Halloween costumes offer something for all kinds of kids.
Wheelchair adaptive costumes are designed to avoid getting caught in the wheels of the chair, but also to provide the maximum amount of comfort to children with disabilities. Also, for kids who have special sensory considerations, Target offers costumes that keep sensitivities to texture and tags in mind. Best of all, these outfits are well-made. Depending on your budget and how elaborate of a getup you’re looking for, you can find something creative available at every price point, from about $20 to $100. Celebrating Halloween shouldn’t be an occasion to feel left out of if your child wants to participate. With these costumes, children with disabilities can be free to trick-or-treat with the most important thing on their minds: all that delicious Halloween fun.
1. Monster Truck Wheelchair Costume
Kids can vroom on by in style with this bright monster truck wheelchair cover.

The set comes with the lithium coin (battery) necessary to operate it.
2. Adaptive Princess Halloween Costume
Your little princess will feel like the belle of the ball in this pretty pink adaptive Halloween costume from Target. The dress opens in the back to allow fastening to a wheelchair. A crown finishes the royal look.
