Target’s ‘Hyde and Eek! Boutique’ has garnered nationwide loyalty for offering both classic and trendy costumes alike to adults and their children (fur or otherwise). This year, Target has released a whole line of Adaptive Halloween costumes that include wheelchair covers, and a costume designed for sensory-sensitive children. While targeted towards children, the wheelchair covers can be used for a range of wheelchair sizes.
They’re set to be released to the public on August 22.
The line offers a very cute “Boys’ Adaptive Pirate Halloween Costume.”
We’d like to argue that any gender would look both very cool and adorable in it. Pirates come in all genders and The costume itself is $25, and it’s significant to see a boy model the costume in a wheelchair.
To get the complete look with the “wheelchair cover,” you’ll have to spend another $45.
Unlike the very few other wheelchair-adaptive Halloween costume offerings, these are mass-produced and accessible to far more people. You’d be hard-pressed to find any other Halloween wheelchair cover for sale, even on Etsy. That means parents are having to hand make a much more complex costume for their child or shell out $99 for one of Spirit Halloween’s wheelchair adaptive costumes.
Target’s second offering allows you to turn a child’s wheelchair into a Princess’s chariot.
Again, this one is labeled a “Girls’ Adaptive Princess Halloween Costume,” but we thank any kid would be a muñecx lindx in this fabulosity. Bravo, Target.
It’s slightly cheaper to be a Princess. Who knew?
The wheelchair cover is also $45, but the costume is $20, about $5 cheaper than the pirate outfit.
Don’t go thinking it’d be easier to just recreate the costumes.
We’re Latino. We’re always getting crafty trying to figure out ways to save some money. Parents of children who use wheelchairs have come through on social media sharing the horror stories of having to create a product that didn’t exist. This parent shared that she was up until well past 4 a.m. creating angel wings for her daughter. 😭
Meanwhile, this mom once accidentally made her daughter look like the aftermath of a crime of passion against a tiger.
She was trying to dress her daughter up as Sophie from the children’s book, “The Tiger Who Came to Tea.” The story goes that Sophie was having tea with her mom when a tiger joined them and drank all the tea, ate all the food, and even drained the water from the taps. The next day, Sophie and her mother buy a ton of food, including “tiger food,” but the tiger never returns.
It’s not the first time Target has included differently-abled children in fun and games.
Just this year, the company included a new line of Barbie dolls that had their own wheelchair and wheelchair ramp included in the doll. The line offers a blonde Barbie and a black Barbie, creating visibility for a group many times removed from the mainstream.
The third offering in its Adaptive line is for more sensory sensitive children.
This costume features flat seams and no tags that would otherwise seriously irritate kids with sensitivities, like autism. It also includes a hidden opening in the front pocket to offer abdominal access for kids with medical needs. Plus, the hood, tail, and wings are removable for added comfort. Target is killing it at creating these thoughtful user-centered design for special needs kids and with flair.
Needless to say, the Internet, especially the disabled community, is weeping.
You’re not the only one crying, Tae. While Target hasn’t even promoted the line yet, Internet reactions are abundant.
So far, all Target has had to say is “Everyone deserves a good Halloween.”
And all we have to say is, bravo. Pa’lante.
Target also has a sensory-adaptive line of clothing for children that do not have tags or irritating seams. They just released a line of sensory-adaptive home products last year.
Last month, Toy Story 4 hit theaters. The latest installment in Pixar’s flagship movie franchise features Woody, Buzz Lightyear, and the rest of the familiar Toy Story characters we’re used to seeing.
Yet Toy Story 4 introduced a new, unexpected toy to love: Forky. Far from the average anthropomorphic store-bought personalities, Forky is a handmade creation and, importantly, the product of a child’s ingenuity.
In fact, Forky is barely a toy at all: He’s a plastic spork adorned with a pipe cleaner, googly eyes, bits of clay, and a broken popsicle stick. All of his parts are literally taken from the trash by Woody and then put together by a kindergartener named Bonnie.
But what Forky is, and has become in the wake of Toy Story 4’s release, is the star of Toy Story 4.
He’s such a star that people around the world are trying to recreate him at home on their own.
Of course, fancy toys are cool and all, but many parents know that sometimes kids often gravitate toward simpler items.
Since Forky is basically just a plastic spork with pipe cleaner arms and googly eyes stuck on him, he’s actually been pretty easy to recreate. Even before “Toy Story 4” was officially in theaters, the animated utensil was winning over hearts and minds, so it’s not too surprising that plenty of homemade Forkys are popping up across social media.
People are legit connecting with this plastic food utensil on a whole other level.
Maybe this is getting too real…?
Toy stores are getting in on the action too.
Like this Mexican toy store chain that is selling a “Make your own Forky kit” that comes with everything you need a Ziploc plastic bag.
And this movie theatre in Sonora is hosting an event that sounds like an amazing idea.
Translation: Families! Don’t miss the Toy Story marathon tomorrow where you could make your own #Forky
Seriously, this is something I want to go to!
Even Disney itself has come out with a $20 “Make Your Own Forky” kit.
I mean really Disney, was this necessary?
And people don’t seem all that happy about it…
Although a lot of people are mad at Disney for trying to make even more money off an item they themselves depict as literal trash, we can’t say we’re surprised.
For those who wanna try and make their own Forky at home, this Twitter user has you covered.
Steps to make your own Forky:
Buy your own personal kit to assemble it.
But some of the best tweets are from people who’ve already made their own versions.
I mean these look nearly identical to the original Forky…minus the all the blue. But those facial expressions…pure Forky.
Some people out there are getting extra creative with their Forky creations.
But this is one I know I’m totally gonna have a good night out with. Salud!
