First time Halloween for my 9month old, I was so excited when I ordered it but went it got here and checked it out. Head piece was too small, and it looked nothing like the picture. I was really disappointed. The only good thing is that it would keep your baby warm while be out on Halloween.
Bottom Line No, I would not recommend this to a friend

Not as Pictured

I ordered this costume for my baby's first Halloween. I was so excited to get it in the mail. However, once I opened this, it was nothing like the picture. The head piece is a completely different material. It still looked adorable on him, but I was disappointed that I paid this much for a costume and it didn't look anything like the picture. Also, I had to sew a hook on the headpiece to keep it closed at the bottom. Not a huge deal, I just expected much better for the price.

My 16th month old wore this for his 2nd halloween. Be usually wears 18-24mos in clothes so i got the 12-18mos size because I know costumes usually run a little big. The only downfall to this was that on the hood there is only a small piece of velcro to hold it together. I had to use a safety pin to hold the hood together. Other than that, it was great!

About Me 1st Time Mother, Appreciate Quality
I used this for my son's first Halloween costume. I was initially concerned he wouldn't leave the head piece on, but maybe because it was a cold night, he left it on.I liked how the body suit fit however the slippers were a little big. My biggest issue was that the mane that appears online looks of better quality. It was still cute and did the job. Ultimately my son looked adorable and everyone agreed. :)

The picture looks cute. This costume is NOTHING like the picture. The tail is quite short and the mane fur is gnarled and matted instead of silky. Honestly, Would not recommend, not at this price.

I seemed like it had been crammed into the bag it came in. And the big red bow was untied and severely wrinkled.

We put this costume on our 17 month old to the Halloween parade and we got so many compliments. He also wore it when I passed out candy and everyone loved it. We also posted pictures and got so many likes and comments. We attended dinner at a friends and my babies costume was a hit. It has better quality than the ones I looked at in stores.

The lil lion costume was adorable, it fits great! My only down fall I had was the velcro wouldn't stay together around the head piece! Which kinda made it a hassle to keep fixing it!

This was Andersons first Halloween and at 11 mths he is adventurous, active and very outgoing. I was in a dilemma between the Lion and the Frog. I am so glad I chose the Lion. It fit his personality well! This was by far a great purchase. I even got 20% off :) and we know how moms are...we love to save!

Bought it for my grandson. He was the custest little lion you'd ever seen.
from Lakeville, MA
This costume looked fantastic on my 20 month old. I ordered the 12-18 months because he's a little guy (24 lbs, 31inches) and it fit him perfectly! It is really cozy for a outdoor event or trick or treating. So far he's worn it for three hours at an indoor event and seemed very comfortable-no complaints anyway and he was the hit of the party!The fur from the mane does shed some but nothing a lint brush can't handle. I do wish it had furry shoe covers rather than booties so he could trick or treat outdoors in them. Most lions don't wear sneakers! I would give it 5 stars if it weren't for that.

getting my costume i got it the day befor i was supposed to get it so it was fast.
Very cute all around, down fall was the head piece, the material was not good to use around a child's face, there was hair everywhere.

About Me Adventurous, Classic, Trendy
this was my grandsons first halloween and we wanted him to be a lion, the local store did not carry this costume. so we ordered it early to make sure we got the one we wanted and it came and was cute as can be, then I took it out and the whole inside of the hood was ripped and fraed. so it couldnt be sewed very easily. so I call the phone number many times and never got an answer, so I called my local store and they had me bring it in and order another one online, I did not get reimbursed for any of the shipping and here it is the 17th and I still do not have the new one! I have been watching the shipping and it has been in Phenoix Az for a few days and I only live 2 hrs out of PHX. and it had better get here soon. so as of now I am very disappointed that I had to pay for the shipping and that I still don't have the product and if this one is ripped I am going to be so upset! For something that should have been so easy the online dept. of this store has made this so difficult!The people in the store were great and would have given me one had they had it but they didn't! I just hope it gets here and I am upset with how much I had to pay for so many headaches!!!

About Me Adventurous
This was a Halloween costume for my Niece she's 20 months and it fits perfectly aside from the head that was a little big. We live in Northern Wisconsin so its generally really cold if there isn't snow already for Halloween so I needed something that I could have her wear that would be able to bundle her up under and she would be warm, however with this costume you really don't have to bundle she was wearing this around outside and she was sweating like no other and it was pretty cold out so I am very pleased that way she won't look like a lion marshmallow lol I couldn't be happier its super cute couldn't have asked for a better coated

HUGE for my 8 month old
By Halloween girl
I purchased the 6-12 month costume and when it arrived it actually said 6 month to 2 years on the package. I have an 8 month old and this was HUGE so it had to be returned to the store.
Loved it, Loved it, Loved it
This costume was nice and thick for warmth. Loved the way it was made,it was very easy to get on and off my one and a half year old grandson.
Does not look like picture.
I bought this for my 9 month old sons first halloween. I thought it was a GORGEOUS costume. I decided to order it because the photo was so awesome and it just looked made so well. All of the other costumes in our area looked poorly made and I was not interested. It came in the mail on saturday and to my surpise it was NOTHING like the picture. The picture of the main around the head piece and on the tail looks like straight fur. The one on the one I recived is like a really fake maded hair looking material. It is not the same color or texture as the picture. And it says that this is a size small from 6-12 months. when on the package it says 6months to 2 years! It is so big that my 3 year old niece could fit in it. I am VERY dissiponted and upset and I will not being ordering costumes online anymore.
I love it!

I was so pleased when I received this! It is adorable. The mane is cute just like the pictures. I had read reviews of other lion costume and people were disappointed with other brands, mainly because of the mane (no pun intended). It is cute and fluffy and seems to be warm. The only con that I can see is that I would purchase a size bigger than it recommends. The sizing chart stated that for my sons age, weight and height to get the 6-12 month size. I went with the 18 months size and it is a little large but will be perfect to fit over a onesie in a couple weeks for Halloween. I had ordered from another company prior to this, and the ran out of what I purchased and took a long time to refund my money. Spirit Halloween shipped my order out immediately and it arrived within the week they quoted me. I am very satisfied with my purchase and would highly recommend this company and the costume.
Nothing like the baby model!
from San Diego, CA
When I saw this costume for the first time I fell in love with it. I didn't hesitate to even look at other baby costumes. When I purchased it, I was super excited to see my 6 month old wear it. When it arrived and opened it, I was very dissapointed. The quality of the costume was very cheap and the tail wouldn't stay fit not like the infant model looks like. Every time I had to carry my son the tail would bend and then it would look horrid. The headpiece was a little small for his face but nothing too bad. I wasn't worried about that. The lion's hair was also very cheap material. I had to play with it for a while until I got it a little fixed. For the price I paid not worth it.
Costume is adorable but not well made. The fur kept coming off of it and there were fuzz balls everywhere. I wouldn't reccommend this costume for a small child because of the itchy fur.
