Baby Chicken Costume
I adore these chicken or rooster costumes. Babies look so precious in them. Whether you baby is lying down, sitting up or strutting around, he or she will look great in one of these. Personally, I think this is one of the best baby animal costumes for a baby or toddler that has started to walk because they look so cute waddling in it.

The yellow feet come with the costume but they are detachable so if your baby is walking you have the choice of whether you use the included feet or his or her own shoes.
This costume is very warm and great for a cooler climate. If your little one is going to be wearing it in a warm climate it may get too hot.
This baby chicken costume is a zip up onesie. It comes in four different sizes.
Feet are not included, but you can easily buy yellow socks for your baby instead.
The fabric is a very soft flannel fabric. The onesie zips from the top and the bottom for convenience.

Baby Duck Costume
Any selection of baby animal costumes should always include ducklings! This baby duck costume is well made and durable. The 100% polyester material is a fuzzy finish with snap closures for easy diaper changes.
The duck head/hood is part of the duck suit and there’s a velcro strap under the chin to secure it.

Baby Shark Costume
This is a high quality costume from Rubies but the fabric is not very thick. This can be an advantage if you live in a warm climate. If you’re in a cooler climate you can easily dress your baby in warmer clothes under the shark costume.
The fabric is 100% polyester and due to the structure and shape it should be hand washed. The fabric is soft enough for your baby to easily sit down or lie down on it. The fin on the back of the costume has been kept soft for this purpose.
The costume includes snap closures for easy diaper changes and there’s a zip on the side of the costume as well. There are no feet included because, well, sharks don’t have feet! If your baby or toddler needs to stay cool you can leave their legs bare. If you need to keep them warm they can wear something on their legs.
Just a word of warning: If your baby or toddler is tall for their age you’ll probably need to go up a size for this costume. If you’re child is smaller for their age then you should be okay with regular sizing.

This shark costume is by InCharacter Costumes. It’s another high quality baby costume. The hood is removable and the costume comes with feet which look like fins. The feet have a non-slip surface on the bottom.
