A Review Of The Great Pretenders Bumble Bee Costume

As my regular readers will know we love dressing up in this house. With two gorgeous little girls we have a variety of pretty tutus, fairy costumes, wings and wands. Now thank you to The Great Pretenders we also have a very cute bumble bee costume too as modelled by Poppy age 3:

Poppy has had great fun trialling this and loves pretending to be a bumble bee.

The Great Pretenders claim to offer high quality costumes that are manufactured using the best materials and workmanship, so do we agree with this? Well yes we do actually.

The dress itself is of  a very good quality. It is lined inside so very soft and silky against the skin, making it very comfortable to wear and not scratchy at all. The bodice of the dress is made of rouched satin whilst the bottom of the dress has several layers to it, making it quite full. The black stripes are made with a lovely satin ribbon. When I first saw it, I thought it looked quite small but it stretches well and fits perfectly. She loves it!

The wings have the elasticated straps that fit over the arms. Complete with gold glitter and black feathers, they are quite glamorous for wings!

The headband completes the outfit. It has black ribbon wrapped around the actual band then it feels like thick pipe cleaners on the end. Feather pom poms top it off complete with gold sparkles.  It is apparently very pretty and very comfortable and Poppy thinks it makes her look like a real bumble bee.

This costume not only looks good but has sparked great imaginative play. Since it has arrived Poppy has been running around the house pretending to fly and when she sits down she pretends it is on flowers. In fact it was quite hard to get photos because she would not stand or sit still long enough.

We give this costume a huge 10/10 and would recommend it to others.

If you want to get your hands on one then they are available at Bright Spark ToysThe dress is available for £21.98 and the wings and headband for £9.98

I think we now need to get some sort of dressing up rail as we are getting quite a collection and the next party we organise will have to be a costume one.

Dressing up is such fun!
