Angry Birds never looked this adorable!

Kids love to dress up ... and quite honestly, many adults never outgrow their desire to disguise themselves as someone else for an evening! I was contacted about a month ago and asked to do a review for Costume Discounters, an online costume shop that covers the gamut when it comes time to become your favorite fantasy character! Of course, I agreed.

My 3 1/2 year old granddaughter, Laura, was thrilled when I pulled out her new mermaid costume! Unfortunately, the toddler size 3-4 was a bit too big for her, which is why I don't have a picture of her in her long green "tail" and seashell headband.

Now, if you've been following the blog for long, you know I'm not a fan of Halloween and my family does not participate in it. However, that doesn't mean I'm against dressing up and having fun with the kids. That's why I couldn't wait to give Laura her costume, and I imagine she'll spend countless hours in it over the next couple of years. Like I said, it's a big large for her right now, so I'm betting she'll be able to wear it until she's 5 or so.

Quality-wise, the costume seems to be well-made, although the fabric is a bit rough. The Lil' Mermaid Costume I bought for Laura sells for $34.99, but is currently on sale for $24.97. I found the prices to be reasonable across the board, if your kids like to dress up to play. However, I wouldn't pay that much for a one-time event, but that's just me. I know a lot of you make your kids' costumes, but if you're looking to take a break from that, I highly recommend checking out Costume Discounters. And while you're at it, head over to their Facebook page where you can find special discounts for fans!

Of course, I'm not a fan of a lot of the costumes ... I don't like people dressing up like slashers, demons or sex fiends, but, for the most part, the infant and toddler line is awfully cute! I cannot fathom why any parent would dress up their baby to look like the devil, a vampire, or a witch, but if you're looking for some pretty sweet looking animal costumes, Costume Discounters has a whole slew. Lobsters and turkeys and bunnies, oh my! The babies and toddlers in the pictures are absolutely adorable!

Life can tough. Sometimes, escaping into a fantasy world is exactly what our kiddos need!

Reviewing it for you,
