LP and Little Man love to play dressing up and have so many costumes – mainly superheroes and princesses so when we were sent a Melissa and Doug Knight Costume from Magic Fairy Wings to review LP and Little Man couldn’t wait to be a character that they knew from history and days out at castles rather than the TV.
The knight costume is so well made, more so than other dressing up outfits that we have had in the past. It comes with a knight tunic, hood, sword and shield – everything a child needs to be a really realistic knight.
The main tunic is made of a fleece type material but is lined to make it nice and thick as well as keeping it’s shape. It does up with velcro all the way up the back and the sleeves are the same thinner material that the hood is made from, slightly stretchy and looking really realistic.
The hood does up at the front with velcro and we did find that the size on this was a little smaller than the tunic – both LP and Little Man were happier without the top piece of velcro being done up. But, the hood tops off the outfit perfectly and LP and Little Man both really loved wearing it.
The shield and sword are made of a really durable foam and match the outfit perfectly. They are both a good size for both LP and Little Man to use and they are comfortable to hold and walk around with.
It’s so nice to broaden the children’s dressing up options and add something from real life to their wardrobe too – they know about knights from so many castle visits and they have already role played so many stories – from slaying dragons to savings princesses! The knight costume is perfect for any child and the play value is only limited by the children’s imaginations.
The Melissa and Doug Knight Costume has an RRP of £19.99
