Disguise Inc, the Halloween costume division of toy manufacturer, JAKKS Pacific Inc, launches a line of licensed wheelchair cover sets and accessible costumes for Halloween 2021. The expanded line now includes adaptive jumpsuits and dresses in addition to the wheelchair wraps available in six popular brands.
Among what is available in stores and online in the US are costumes and wheelchair covers inspired by Poppy from DreamWorks Animation’s Trolls World Tour, Chase from Paw Patrol: The Movie, Transformers Bumblebee and Batman and the Batmobile.
These costumes are thoughtfully designed to be worn by children with an array of needs, providing accessible options like detachable capes, an opening at the waist for a feeding tube and a long opening in the back for easy dressing. There are also hook and loop closures at the arm sleeve, abdominal, and pant inseam openings on the jumpsuits and dresses to make them easy to put on and take off.
The wheelchair covers fit most wheelchairs and are made of firm felt and feature full printed character artwork. Each cover comes with supportive plastic piping pieces for added stability and several long self-stick fabric strips to help keep the pieces in place.
“We couldn’t be prouder of the way these turned out. With consistent positive feedback from parents and caregivers on these costumes, we look forward to expanding the range of this line into 2022,” says Tara Hefter, President and GM of Disguise Inc. “All of our many licensors have professed interest in developing into this market, and we are excited to reveal our fully global 2022 line soon.”
