If your child is a big fan of Big Bird or even if you’re a grown up kid who still has fond memories of this Sesame Street stalwart, you may be wondering where you can pick up a Big Bird costume this Halloween. For everyone from toddlers to adults and everyone in between, you can find a Big Bird costume to suit your needs. Several of your favorite stores carry versions of Big Bird costumes or save yourself the trip and have your costume shipped directly to your house from one of several online retailers.
Big name retailers like Wal-Mart, Target, K-Mart, and Toys ‘R Us are convenient, affordable places to pick up your Big Bird costume. Target and Wal-Mart carry versions for the whole family: costumes for toddlers and young children as well as a shirt with attached hood for adult men and a dress, also with attached hood, for adult women who are still really just big kids at heart. Ladies can pick up a Big Bird headband and pair it with a yellow dress for an easy, last minute costume. The headband is also available with a dress, and a pair of pink and orange striped tights or with a coordinating shrug. Age-appropriate versions of the adult dress are available for infants, toddlers, girls, tweens, and teens.
Make your life easier by shopping for your Big Bird costume without ever leaving the house! Amazon.com carries Big Bird costumes for the whole family; while you’re on the site, pick up a plush Snuffleupagus doll to bring with you. CostumeCauldron.com also carries Big Bird costumes for all ages and doesn’t charge sales tax. While you’re online, search around for other Jim Henson characters and go with a Sesame Street couple or family theme.
If you like the convenience of online shopping but prefer the easy returns and customer service you get from a brick-and-mortar store, shop where you can have the best of both worlds. Halloween superstores like Spirit Halloween and Party City have both online and regular retail stores so you can browse for your Big Bird costume at home but try it on in the store.
