Posted on December 31 2014

2014.  What a whirlwind of a year!  Time to Dress Up launched in June and we’ve seen amazing growth for the business and really appreciate the love our customers have for our quality dress up costumes.  With the start of a new year just around the corner, we thought we’d take a look back and round up our best sellers throughout the year to see what your kids were wearing in 2014…

10. Baby Cowboy

Rated 5 stars from our reviews, one customer said “Gorgeous costume my wee boy got so many compliments” This cute cowboy costume is bound to be a hit at any Wild West or Toy Story party and comes complete with cowboy hat – yeehaw!

9. Oriental Princess

It’s no wonder this beautifully detailed dress is one of our bestsellers, and perfect for children who want to be a princess, but not wear girly pink. Your child will look stunning in this oriental gown, perfect for parties or just for feeling majestic at home.

8. Peach Melba Fairy

Made from organza, satin and velour with beautiful rich colours, this gorgeous dress up creates a super sweet look that has your little one away with the fairies in a magical land of make believe.  This outfit comes with matching wand sprinkled with flowers to complete the magic.

7. Cowboy Accessory Set

With this set of cowboy essentials you’ll be fully prepared to hit the wild west with everything any self-respecting cowboy needs.  The set includes; Waistcoat with belt and holster, hat, star sheriff's badge and gingham neckerchief – an absolute must for any dressing up box.

6. Children’s Tiger

This costume is so plush it’s no wonder it’s been a hit. The hood of the costume features whiskers and a padded nose, and the costume also has a tail and claws for full on GRRR effect!

5. Baby Teddy Bear

Another 5 star rated costume and that comes as no surprise.  This costume is so soft and cuddly, you’ll find it even harder than usual to resist giving your baby cuddles all day long! As one customer confirms; “Teddy bear costume is lovely. Perfect fit and so soft for my little one”.

4. T-Rex


Available for 3 years+ this detailed T-Rex costume comes complete with spikes, tail and teeth, just what a dinosaur on the prowl needs. We’re expecting this to be a big hit next year too with the release of Jurassic World – a costume any dinosaur fan will love.

3. Baby Lion

With a beautiful ruffled mane, this lion costume is perfect for your little one to practice their ROAR! If your baby is taking their first steps, this outfit has skid resistant feet so they can pad around being King or Queen of the jungle!

2. Triceratops

Available in a range of sizes from just 18 months old this is another of our brilliant dinosaur costumes for even the littlest of dinosaur fans.  With horns, spikes, tail and claws, your little one can love pretending they’re roaming the land eating plants during the late Cretaceous period, just like a real triceratops!

Our number 1 bestseller of 2014 is….

    What a great top 10. My girls were always dressing up as animals when they were young and it was very common to see a dragon patrolling our local supermarket!

    Love the Oriental dress the most! Though have to say the teddy bear makes me squeal with glee.

  • Halima: January 01, 2015

    Congrats on 2014 and the launch!

    Maaaaaan sometimes I wish I was still a kid so I could wear these costumes, not many come in adult sizes :(
