The Cat in the Hat Costume
What would you do, if your mother asked you?
Why, wear a Cat in the Hat Costume for Halloween!
The Cat in the Hat has long been one of the most popular characters in children’s literature. It is Dr. Seuss’ signature book, and this mischievous and fun cat is even the logo of his books. Children and parents around the world love to read about his adventures and mis-adventures, as well as Thing 1 and Thing 2 that come out of his mysterious red box. Luckily, at the end of the day, everything is cleaned up.
What would you do on a rainy day?
The dedication to detail can be seen in these great costumes. Adults and children can enjoy the antics of this famous character for Halloween or parties. Here’s a couple fun baby and animal toddler costumes to look at:
Cat in the Hat Infant Romper
Sizes: 0-6 months, 6-12 months
What infant doesn’t like getting into trouble? Being curious, they will get into all sorts of places, make lots of messes, and generally turn your home into a zoo … well, at least they’re cute about it! (Our own infant, now 15 months old, always says “Uh oh!” when she knows she’s in trouble!)
This cute costume, an officially licensed Cat in the Hat outfit, includes a soft black and white bodysuit with oversize red bowtie, tail, and leg snaps for easy diaper changes. It also includes a headpiece with the signature hat.
Cat in the Hat – Tiny Toddler Costume
Size: Standard Toddler, 2-4 years
This wonderful toddler costume is true to the character’s reputation. It includes the traditional red and white striped hat. Along with this component your little michevious kitten will wear a black jumpsuit with an attached tail. The bright red bow tie of this ensemble steals the show.
The famous red and white striped stovepipe hat is also included. All you need are white gloves and shoes to complete the outfit.
The Cat in the Hat book debuted in publication on March 12, 1957. Dr. Seuss wrote it in response to Life Magazine’s 1954 article mourning the sad state of children’s beginner books in schools – they were incredibly boring and basic – See Jane Run just isn’t that entertaining!
The incredibly creative rhymes and fantastic imagination of the book has brought joy to children around the world. Thing 1 and Thing 2, of course, can be seen as boundless children playing without consequences in the house – luckily, the narrator, a little boy, has the sense to realize how out of hand everything is getting! Fortunately, the Cat in the Hat’s last “trick” involves a multi-hand vehicle that cleans everything up. Just in time, because mother is coming in the door!
