Disney Toy Story Buzz Lightyear Costume
Advantages: Looks god, easy to get in to
Disadvantages: Very small
The costume resembles the one from the toy story movies well; it has the laser button and other small details which make the outfit complete. There are foam wings that stick to Velcro fastenings on the back of the costume. These are a good size, but not so big that they annoy little one. We do find that they lose their stickiness after time, but I think that was because I put the suit through the washing machine a number of times. As the whole jump suit is mainly white it shows up dirt instantly, and mixed with a two year old you can imagine how often it needs cleaned. It does come up well; we did find that the colour fades a little with each wash. This is not too much so it is ruined so I would rather it look a little worn than having black knees from where he has been carrying out his super spaceman duties.
As previously stated we were a little worried this would be too large for my son, as it had an age recommendation of three to five years. It was actually the opposite problem we found my two year old could jut squeeze into the jumpsuit, and it fell just at the right level. My son is not tall for his age, if anything he is a little shorter than average. The wings also look a little small sitting on his shoulders so I am not sure they would be useful for anyone a little bigger. For this reason there is no way I would recommend it for a three year old. My little girl has tried it on find it came up to her ankles, she is soon to be four, but as the age recommendation states up to five years I think it is very misleading. We also received a purple hat for little one to wear for the headpiece. It is a piece of material which stretches around the top of the head, and then fastens under the chin. This is absolutely tiny, and my son only wore it for five minutes, and we found it to be restricting his movement so unfortunately this is no good.
It is perfect for recreating their favourite scenes from toy story. As it is very well detailed even without the space helmet, and boot covers it resembles Buzz light year well. My son absolutely loves this set, and he tries to wear it each day. None of my other children liked story whereas he adores it, and we watch the movie at least 6 times a week. He sometimes wears it while watching the movies to recreate scenes, other times he just wants to wear it while playing with his toys. It is the perfect role play accessory for making up a story too. I often catch him trying to fly around the front room, or trying to pull the wings off because buzz is crashing. Although it is a little small fo my son it is not restrictive and he could move frely around without any problems at all.
I would recommend this dress up set to anyone with a Buzz mad child. You just need to keep in mind that the sizing is very mall, so if in doubt definitely go a size up. It resembles the character well so is instantly recognisable to any fan. At £16 it is an average price for a character dress up set, and although it says not suitable for machine washing it comes up well on a low heat. It has lasted very well in the time we have owned it, and my son loves it so it really does receive a lot is use. The accessories to go with the suit are not fantastic, but the main jumpsuit itself is perfect for fuelling imaginations.
