Little Adventures Product Review

I received this costume set for my son three days ago and he’s wanted to wear it every day since then. He likes to pretend he’s fighting monsters with the sword and shield set.

Both the knight vest and the helmet are lightweight and made of cloth which is perfect for active kids that don’t like wearing regular helmets. My son doesn’t like to wear helmets for long periods of time because his head gets sweaty, so the cloth helmet is much better.

The sword and shield are also both lightweight. The sword is made of foam and would probably not cause much damage.

I was extremely impressed not only with the quality and detail in the knight costume but also with the quality of all other costumes on the Little Adventures website, especially the princess costumes.

I also like how many of the costumes can easily be worn over regular clothes. You don’t have to completely change their clothes and the kids can put the costumes on themselves. They also have costumes for dolls and adults.


The knight vest and helmet are $21.99. The sword and shield are $12.99.

Shipping is free if you order from the Little Adventures website.

For the sword and shield, from the website:

“Dragons beware and maidens rejoice, your knight is on his way with his trusty sword and shield to aid him on his quest. The set is made from a high-quality dense foam that adds both safety and longevity. Adventures await! Features: High-quality dense foam construction. Safe for play; made to last.”

My Description

This costume (and any other costumes from Little Adventures) are wonderful for kids who are interested in costume play and love to play pretend (which are 99% of kids). They also make great costumes for Halloween or other dress-up occasions. The Little Adventures website also sells adult and doll costumes.


While most of the kids’ costumes were very reasonably priced and under $30, I thought some of the costumes and accessories (such as the cloaks) were a bit overpriced. However, they seem to be very well-made and most likely will last a long time.

How to Buy

You may purchase costumes from the Little Adventures website or from stores like Walmart or Amazon.

  1. When my kids were young, they loved dress up so much. We even had a dress up box. It was always fun to find something to add at a yard sale or at a used clothing store. My sons would save up their money to buy costumes and masks at the store, their favorite being all things Batman, but they loved all superheroes. I’m not a grandmother yet, so if I win this, it’ll go to my sister for her grandson.

  2. Looks like high quality product to have fun with!

  3. I bet my daughter would love to dress as a knight too! She already has a blow up light saber that she attacks us with. The costumes do look like great quality too.
