I love Target and if you do too, I am going to give you one more reason to love them… Target is Releasing Halloween Costumes for Kids In Wheelchairs this year and it just brings my heart pure joy.

Target has a really cool selection of Halloween costumes made just for kids in wheel chairs. They are calling this collection the ‘Adaptive Costume Collection’. 

Now, in case you didn’t know, Target has had adaptive costumes since 2020 and each year, they seem to add more and more.

Adaptive Costume Collection

This year, not only do they have adaptive costumes for kids, they also have adaptive costumes for adults too!

According to the description, the costumes are made for easy wear. 

Thoughtfully created for kiddos in wheelchairs, the Adaptive Dragon Halloween Costume Wheelchair Cover with Headpiece from Hyde & EEK! Boutique™ will help add a delightful touch their Halloween costume. This wheelchair Halloween costume is especially designed to jazz up wheelchairs and is also a comfy option for those with sensory needs.

The wheelchair cover also easily attaches to the wheelchair.

Ease of Dressing products are designed to make it easier to get dressed, and can enable someone to dress independently.

They have several options for boys and girls so everyone can feel included!

According to the description the costume:

This girls’ pink princess costume is thoughtfully designed with an opening in the back that lends ease of dressing, great for giving kids who use wheelchairs an extra hand and a sense of comfort. 

I would love to see more retailers create Halloween costumes like these.

  1. This is excellent, and I applaud Target for making inclusive costumes widely available. Would love to see them not only expand the line, but avoid the gender stereotyping. Why not pirate and fairy tale option for all genders? Wouldn’t be hard to just change the language and add a skirt/pants option to both. Seems an unnecessary limitation.

  2. Its Special needs kids/adults .. Anyways .my son has cerebral palsy ..so I might buy him something of the sort! Rather saying this is awesome y’all are much more worried about the words of kids in wheelchairs ?? …the only ones who needs to be worried about that is parents like me .. And target ..

  3. These are amazing, and they have adaptive features on these and other costumes, too (e.g., unicorn with pouch to allow abdominal access), and this is such a huge and important step forward! Most of the costumes are affordable ($20-25), but the wheelchair accessories are like $45! That’s a LOT, and it puts the cost of the whole costume a bit above “affordable” for most people. It’s too bad that so many things automatically get a price hike for being adaptive (I’m thinking of onesies, and larger size onesies in particular, at Target and elsewhere), or are of slightly lesser quality (sometimes in addition to being more expensive – I love my Cat and Jack adaptive outfits for my toddler, but they faded and pilled much faster than I would have expected). I wish we could make adaptive clothing both more affordable and of better quality – not plain and easily pillable.

  4. I think it’s great I make my sons costume every year for around is wheelchair it’s a lot of work but my god it’s so worth every minute of it

  5. Target does not do gender branding, I would say that they are costumes for kids who use wheelchairs. Not boys or girls.

  6. Yay. Good morning. My son is in a wheelchair. how can I have more information on getting the costume for him. This is so beautiful. awesome. Great. Much blessings to you for doing this. Last year my son was olaf. My son has cerebral palsy. What are the sizes you go up to. Thanks a million again.

  7. Finally! Boy, I wish someone did this 30 years sooner! As someone who has been in a wheelchair my entire life, my mom had to sew all my Halloween costumes herself because we could never find anything in stores that would work for me. Now as a mom myself, it brings me great joy to know that all children can now experience Halloween to the fullest despite their physical limitations.

  8. Thanks so much for this article! I would, however, highly recommend using Person First Language. So instead of saying “kids in wheelchairs”, you’d say “kids that use wheelchairs”.

  9. Maybe eventually they’ll come up with costumes for “big kids” in wheelchairs too. 🙂 I need a pink convertible to go with my poodle skirt costume! 😀

  10. I do think this is a wonderful idea. Rolling buddies has pioneered this idea about three years ago. They have over 200 costumes for kids in wheelchairs.
