Christmas Gift Guide: Dressing Up

Welcome to the BG Christmas Gift Guide 2011. We love nothing more than a well stocked dressing up box. From princesses, knights and dragons to doctors and astronauts we have something to ignite the imagination for everyone.

KIGU are exclusive to Selfridges this season and they have a range of animal dressing up suits. Our favourite is the penguin – so very Frozen Planet. £39.

I think this Djeco Superhero Kit, complete with its own carry case, looks like it is right out of a cartoon action film. Loving the bright colours and ability to turn it into whatever hero you choose to be. £16.95 from Born To

Pirates are not going anywhere and are sailing strong in children’s fashion. This Savo and Pomelina Pirate Costume is swashbuckling at its finest and will last many years of adventuring. £44.99 from Toyella.

Never mind the children, I want a Tutu du Monde dress in my wardrobe. Made from the dreams of children who love to dance these tutus are handmade. They really do know the socks off the cheap princess dresses which seem ubiquitous these days. My favourite is the delicate blue Posy Tutu £125 from Olive Loves Alfie.

Through the tears at the latest John Lewis advert I spied this Gruffalo Dress Up which looks far cuter on the child than it does in this picture! If your house is as Gruffalo obsessed as our you know this is going to create screams and excitement of epic proportions come Christmas morning. Just don’t expect them to take it off any time soon… £20 from John Lewis.

Proving that a little accessorising can create an entire costume I love these Wovenplay Button Socks £19 from Orfeo. More open-ended play from Fafu in the form of Handy and Cony which can be adapted in as many ways as you can think of. £11 and £13.50 from Toyella.

Need a kitchen helper to cook the turkey? This apron and hat set from John Lewis is a snip at just £5.

Reversible costumes double up the fun and the Travis astronaut / racing driver combo is a little more unusual than most. £29.99 from Nubie.

Be a mysterious sword fighting hero with Zid Zid’s Zorro Costume £30 from Sisters Guild.

I wished and wished for a doctor’s kit as a child so I didn’t have to be the patient every time. This set from Haba has everything a competent medic needs to administer some healing. £20.86 from Ptolemy Toys.

Again, proving all you need is a little something to transform yourself we have the Oskar and Ellen elephant hat and tail £9.99 from a range at The Beanstalk (I happen to know the crocodile version is headed to one of our stockings). The wildly hilarious Pippi Longstocking Wig £13.99 from Kidsen. I am loving the simplicity of this princess crown and veil from Le Pingouin de L’espace for €24. And a cross between an art deco debutante and something from Flash Gordon this princess crown is wonderfully non-typical. £12 from Few and Far.

For some medieval glamour this reversible cape turns you into a knight or a dragon. You can accessorise it with a velvet crown or shield both in a range of colours all available at The Beanstalk.
