Sometimes, I think, it is perfectly OK to cheat a little.
Online retailers Fancy Dress Outfitters offer an amazing range of dressing up costumes for both adults and children. I selected an outfit from their Children's Christmas Range to review.
I liked the look of their Snowflake Elf and Tree Fairy costumes but finally opted for the Christmas Pudding.
This is my little Addy, aka the Dancing Xmas Pud, with an original jingle performed by my musical (and ever obliging) daughters.
As well as using fancy dress outfits for parties and other special occasions, I love having a dressing up box available for my children. It can really inspire them and be the catalyst for imaginative play. The Xmas Pudding outfit will make a welcome addition to our festive themed dressing up box.
