I need some ideas for a 1&2 year old dress ups, theme Toy Story. The only catch is, I’ve left it too late to order online so need some clever cheap ideas to make something.

  • Have you checked Pinterest for some ideas?

  • marketplace is great to try

  • Oh dear, I am SO glad dress ups weren’t a big thing when my kids were school age, I’d be hopeless too

  • Check out op shops in your area; they will often have costumes for littles. Also you can always just lean into the country/cowboy vibe with jeans, checkered shirt and a toy horse if you have one.

  • Shouldn’t be too hard to find some toddler dress ups in the shops. Shiploads and The Reject Shop are great, as is KMart

  • Jeans, checkered flannel shirt, wide brim sun hat, you can get socks with a cute matching pattern, I think the shops still sell the kids ride on stick pony’s?
    All the best!

  • Op shops often have second hand costumes and also clothes that could work for a costume.

  • I agree with a flannel shirt and a jeans and maybe you have a cowboy hat in your dress-up box and some boots in your cupboard (may even be rain boots-doesn’t matter). Alternatively can can ask around if you can borrow something ?

  • A visit to a top dollar or smart dollar type shop might be a good idea. They seem to have reasonably priced dress ups and other items that would work for a costume.

  • I’d just go with a flannel shirt and trousers . The cheap shops often have clip on sherriff stars and cowboy hats.

  • check shirt, jeans and boots. you could add some tassels and a cowboy hat. or for buzz light year – cut our wings and cover in foil. foil covered box for helmet. or bonnet, pretty dress and make a parasol or cane for Bo
