Like most young children Alexander enjoys dressing up and has a few dressing up costumes which he loves wearing. I was recently looking for some costumes for our first ‘photomaton event‘ when I came across the family owned business, Pretend to Bee.

Pretend to Bee has a wonderful selection of fancy dress costumes for pretty much every idea you can think of. Animals, princesses and characters whatever your child wants to pretend to be….

I was kindly sent the Mr. Fox costume for our first event and I honestly thought I’d return it straight after the event, but Alexander said “No way!” He loves it, he put it on the next day when he noticed it was still in my bag and asked me to join him to the forest to try to find some real foxes. I had to dress up as a princess, luckily he only made me wear a princess crown… “Allez! mummy! Let’s go !”

The costume is easy to put on and off, the material used feels really soft, especially the hat, and feels like it will last. The hood has two Velcro pieces underneath and is again easy to secure.  Alexander had no trouble taking the costume on and off himself.
