Comments about Spirit Halloween Toddler Dave Minion Costume - Despicable Me 2:
I bought this costume for my 3 year old and he loved it! We went trick or treating and to a Halloween party in it. He even won second place in the costume contest and several people kept telling me how great he looked in it!
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

Not great fit, but very cute!!

The costume itself is adorable....it's not the best material but I didn't expect fancy material for the $20 I paid. I agree that the legs run short. I bought a 2/4 and it just fits my 2yo in the legs. Arms, body and hat are perfect. The package does say 2/4, fits 1/2 year old. I went to a local store to buy this so I could try it on my lil' guy. His personality is more like a purple minion but the yellow guy will have to do :0)
Love the costume but a little small

I loved the costume and it fit well on the upper body of my toddler but on the leg portion it ran a tad small and looked more like shorts instead of long pants. The elastic on the ankles made it harder to attempt diaper changing. If you have small hands, you may be able to squeeze though the opening if a changing is necessary. But overall I loved the costume and my toddler loved it and the hat.

Stains come out easily, my son got chocolate a spaghetti sauce all over his at a costume party and they all came out with a little Shout in a regular wash cycle. He is talk and thin for his age (22 months) and the costume was slightly big on him, enough so that he could wear a coat and heavy pants underneath.
I will order in here again.
My son really likes it! He doesn't want to take it off anymore once he is wearing it.

Loved this when I put it on my son. He looked absolutely adorable just like I thought he would. It's gotten pretty chilly where we live, but it will be warm enough that I don't have to cover him up in a coat to go trick or treating. So glad I pre-ordered this because I just love this costume!

Idea for the minion is completely cute. However, it COMPLETELY isn't size correctly. The top part of the one-piece outfit fits my 18 month old perfectly but the leg part barely velcros under her diaper and end at her knees... Making it impossible to put it on her as the bottoms are sewn together. If we got the next size up, the legs would be perfect but then the top would be too big and long for her arms.
Bottom Line No, I would not recommend this to a friend
Not True to Size
By Lisa W.
When I ordered it said size 2-4 - I needed it to fit a 3-year-old. But when I got it, the package said 2-4 "fits 1-2 years old" (what kind of sizing is that?!). Looked back at the website and the size had been changed to 18-24 months. We pre-ordered the costume and were really looking forward to receiving it. Had I known what size it really was, I wouldn't have wasted my money. Now I need to find something else for my son to wear for Halloween.

I purchased the toddler size 2-4 for my 2.5 year old. The pants barely came to his knees!!! I don't think this would fit anyone over 8 months old. Really disappointing and too much of a hassle for me to return so a waste of money too. I ended up purchasing a boys size small 4-6 from another company and it works although not nearly as cute. Oh well, my boy has his heart set on being a minion so be it.

This costum runs way to small. The size 2/4 is more likely to b fit a 1/2.
from Stockton, CA
This was a horrible fit and was not true to size. We waited a very long time for the product to arrive and I was extremely disappointed. We went to the store to exchange it there were no sizes available.
Cheap and Small

The costume says it will fit 1 -2 years old. My son is 18 months and the costume is too small. It is poor quality. Instead of real overalls, it velcros shut all across the inside of the legs and groin. It is not worksh $35 -- maybe $10 at the most. I am returning this costume and making his.
Not what I thought it would be.
This product was not like the picture on Spirit Halloween. very disappointed....
By Dissatisfied Mom :-(
It is a really cute costume. I ordered a 2T-4T costume and was worried it might be too big as 2T clothing is big on my 2 year old son (especially 2T pants being too long). The website said it would not ship until Oct. 15 so I was happy when it arrived in the mail today. As soon as I pulled the costume out, I knew it was too short! I was just barely able to get his legs into the costume and it sits just below his knees! No 4 year old would ever fit in this costume! The portion of the costume that covers his torso fits well so it would not even be a good fit for a 6-12month old as stated in other reviews. The length would be good for that age range, but it would be way too big around. Someone really screwed up the measurements when they made the pattern for this costume!
WAY TOO SMALL!!!!!

As you can see from the other comments, don't order this costume! I got the 2t-4t size and it would probably fit a 12 month old. My son is on the small side and it hardly covers his knees! Waste of money!

I ordered the Minion Dave Costume in a 2-4T back in August as a pre-ordered item. I received the costume in the mail yesterday October 2, 2013. I was extremely disappointed to find out that the costume did not fit my son. He loves the Minion and I was so excited to be able to get him this costume this year and it upset him greatly that he couldn't even fit in it.I preordered this costume to make sure that I got it before they sold out. Now I don't have a costume for Halloween and every other Minion costume in my sons size online is already sold out. Now what am I suppose to do??My son is 2 years old and small for his age so most 2T stuff is big on him. He is at most 33 inches in height. The costume was so small I could not even get him in it. The legs on the costume are so short they don't even come halfway down my sons legs. I can't tell on the package whether I received the 6-12 months costume or the 2-4T costume but whatever I received wouldn't even fit a 1 year old child. I measured the costume and it measured 21 inches long!!! My son was 19 inches long at birth!! seriously there is no way 21 inches is fitting him now at 2 years of age when he is 33 inches. On the website it states that a Toddler 2-4T costume should fit a child who is 35-39 inches in height. I dunno if I got the wrong costume, wrong size costume in the packaging, wrong size all together, or if it was a manufacturer issue but I am soo upset as is my son who cried for like an hour because he was so upset he couldn't wear it.

I was so excited to be able to pre-order this costume for my 2 year old son. He loves minions! I ordered it back in august and ordered a 2-4T.Yesterday I received he costume in the mail. I opened I up and tried to put it on my son and I couldn't even get him in the costume. The top and hat fit but the legs on the costume were sooo small they don't even come to my son's knees and I could not even get his legs in he costume. My son is small for his age as well so most 2T stuff especially pants are too long for him so I figured I would order the 2-4T as I could always roll it up if it was to long. I measured this costume with a tape measure and found I to be only 21 inches in length!! 21 inches in length wouldn't even fit a 1 year old!! My son was 18 inches long when he was born!! The website's sizing chart said that a 2-4T would fit a child whose height was 35-39 inches. My son is soo disappointed he couldn't fit into his costume that he cried for like an hour. I am not sure if I received the correct costume, or if it was to wrong size costume in the correct packaging, or if it was a manufacturer problem. I can't even find another minion costume online that is his size they are already all sold out!!! I am soo disappointed and upset with this entire experience.
Way Too Small

About Me Disappointed
I ordered this far in advance in August as I my 3 year grandson was very excited about it. It arrived Sept. 29 and I opened it up much to my disappointemnt my size 2T-4T looked like it was made for a 6-12 month old. Now the bigger sizes that would fit are all sold out! Not good busines to send so late and make so small. It will be returned. Very Sad grandma
Ordered this costume for my 2 year old son in August. It is suppose to be a 2t to 4t (2t is even slightly big on him) There is no way this costume is any bigger than a 12mo outfit. Now there is not even a 2t 4t option online to order. NOT HAPPY! I see from the review above me the same comment
I ordered this on line on August 25. My first clue to cancel should have been the expected ship date on or before Oct. 5. As it was still way before Halloween I decided to keep it. I was very excited when I received it yesterday Sept. 30 only to open it and find they had sent the wrong size. I ordered 2t-4t and what I received would not fit an infant of 12 months. Now they are sold out and my grandson has to find another costume!
I ordered this in a size 2T-4T for my grandson on August 26 it finally arrived Sept. 29 and I was very excited. then I opened it and was very disappointed I received an infant size 12 months at most. Now they are sold out everywhere! very poor service Spririt Halloween! This will be going back and my 3 year old grandson will be very disappointed.
Wrong size shipped
from San Diego,California
I ordered this costume on August 17 and it arrived on September 28. I was excited it had finally arrived because it sold out everywhere. I ordered the size 2T but got a costume that is for 6-12 months!!! My son is 19 months and it was super small on him. It wouldn't close in the back and was 2 inches too short:( I am very disappointed because I was really looking forward to my baby being a minion for Halloween. I will never order costumes from Spirit again and this experience has made me skeptical about ordering from other costume store as well.The material is fleece like and not very good quality.
