Over the last few years, we've seen an inspiring surge in inclusive Halloween costumes for kids. Geared toward little ones with disabilities, these elaborate ensembles transform everything from walkers to wheelchairs into festive holiday props. While, in the past, such costumes were mostly manufactured by creative non-profits and particularly artistic parents, they've now become a bit more accessible thanks to Target.

This year, the popular retailer has added four adaptive costumes to its Hyde and Eek! Boutique, a treasure trove of Halloween goodies and get-ups. These new outfits include two wheelchair-friendly designs: a princess and a pirate. On top of offering outfits that are easy for wheelchair users to put on and take off, these costumes also feature special attachments that, using hook-and-loop closures, can easily transform a kid's wheelchair into an enchanting carriage or an adventure-ready pirate ship.

In addition to children in wheelchairs, this new line of inclusive costumes also caters to kids with special sensory sensitivities. Hyde and Eek! Boutique's super soft unicorn and shark costumes feature flat seams and no tags. They also come with pieces that are easily detachable in order to ensure that all trick-or-treaters can customize the costumes to be as comfy as possible.

These celebrated costumes come on the heels of other inclusive items at Target, including adaptive apparel and sensory-friendly furniture. Like these other products, the line of Halloween costumes aims to “spark some huge smiles” and, most of all, ensure that every child has a happy holiday.

Target has introduced a new line of Halloween get-ups geared toward kids with disabilities, including clever princess and pirate wheelchair costumes.
