9 Clever Stroller Halloween Costumes For Babies Who Be Rollin'

by Lindsay E. Mack

Halloween with your infant is tremendous fun, except for one obstacle: the stroller. How is everyone supposed to admire your kid's costume when she's tucked away in the buggy? By using ingenious stroller Halloween costumes, you can tote your tot around in style all evening. As a bonus, your hands are free for taking pictures or, more importantly, snacking on mini candy bars.

Making the stroller a part of the costume is not as complicated as it may seem. A few indie businesses sell adorable stroller covers that look like race cars or flower gardens, so you can build your kid's outfit around that theme. Or, if you're the crafty sort, a simple onesie, coordinating stroller blanket, and some accessories can turn your stroller into a rolling casino, owl's nest, or space shuttle.

In addition, stroller costumes are not that mainstream, so your kid's getup will stand out in a crowd. It's such a clever approach to Halloween for babies, you might start a new trend for the kids on your block. Whether your stroller costume transports your kid to a garden or a candy bowl, it's certain to create a memorable Halloween experience for your family. Plus, the stroller gives you plenty of extra room to store candy hauls.
