"I bought this for my 3 yr old daughter. I was worried that the legs would be too long for her but they are perfect. She is about 33" tall. The size says it is for 4-8...i don't see how an 8 year old would ever fit into this. The tail on ours is a little different than the picture here but I like it better....also, a nice feature is the feet don't have bottoms...i was concerned about this but -- no worries! I love this costume and so does my dtr and everyone that sees it!!!"
