All children deserve to feel magical and special on Halloween, but that's not always the case. For children with mobility differences, many costumes are simply impossible to put on or remove with ease, and there are few things more frustrating to a child than wanting to be Spider-Man, but feeling like they aren't. Thankfully, Disney's new line of adaptive costumes, complete with wheelchair covers, addresses this very real need in the market.
Children with mobility issues often have a hard time getting into traditional Halloween costumes — and everyday clothing for that matter — and therefore they are either forced to cobble something together on their own, or make alterations to existing costumes. As any parent knows, getting any child ready for trick-or-treating is hard enough, but add in the weight of needing to shift the entire plan? It can seem impossible. Disney is changing the game by offering three different costumes: The Incredibles, Buzz Lightyear, and Cinderella, all with easy-open backs, for a relatively affordable $50. (And the same cost as many of their non-adaptive costumes.) They are also selling an Incredimobile wheel chair cover set and Cinderella's carriage wheelchair cover, each for $50.
These designs allow parents to chill out just a little bit, while giving kids with different needs the ability to have the same costumes as everyone else, if only easier to take on and off.
