"This costume is so cute. My son is 26 months and this costume is a bit big on him, he fits 2T's perfectly right now. I was kind of banking on this issue though so he can wear clothes under it (this is Ohio) and we will surely be able to wear it again next year. Like another reviewer said, the costume is very soft. I was pleasantly surprised and know my son will be comfortable. I like the hat too because it covers the head and ears nicely to keep him warm. The "straw" is made from little pieces of string. I couldn't beat the price and I ordered it standard delivery and it still came a day early. Very pleased."
