PC Monkey with Jokers’ Masquerade – a review

PC Monkey with Jokers' MasqueradeWe missed all the dressing up excitement that comes with World Book Day as we were in Spain.  Monkey has only just started to show any interest in this kind of role play.  I think his school nativity play has helped, as I’ve certainly seen a change since then.  Today I’d like to introduce PC Monkey with Joker’s Masquerade!

DSCN1248As regular readers will know, Monkey got his first bike recently, a Police Bike.  So when looking for a dressing up costume, there was only one option.  We went for Child’s Police Boy Costume from Jokers’ Masquerade.  This set is currently on offer for £13.49 on the website.  It’s available in 3 sizes, to fit children between the ages of 4-12.  We picked the Small size – aimed at children aged 4-6 years.

The outfit is made up of a pair of trousers with an elasticated waist, an all in one short-sleeved top, a Police Hat and a clip on walkie-talkie.  Monkey wanted to put it on as soon as we unwrapped the parcel.  The badge on the hat is sewn on, so no risk of it getting lost, or someone accidentally stabbing themselves on a safety-pin.

The outfit is well made and Monkey really loved the police hat and walkie-talkie.  The only downside from his point of view was not being able to clip the walkie-talkie onto the jacket.  He’d seen the photo on the front of the bag and wanted to copy it.  Unfortunately, as the jacket is an integral part of the shirt, we just couldn’t get the clip to hold.  We tried a different approach and he was happy.

So as Monkey decided who he needed to arrest first, Daddy P or Teddy, I quickly fled the scene!

The Jokers’ Masquerade website has a whole host of fancy dress items for children and adults alike.  Children from 6 months onwards are catered for too.  We’ll certainly know where to look when World Book Day comes around next year.

About Over 40 and a Mum to One

I'm a Mum with an 8 year old son. I had a busy life in Export Sales before my Monkey came along, but decided to become a stay at home Mum once he arrived. Now I enjoy writing my own family lifestyle and travel blog. sharing the adventures that we have as Monkey makes his journey through school. We have a cat called Brewster who makes appearances and I’m a mad Ferrari Formula 1 fan, so that expect to hear about as each season unfolds. We love reviewing days out, toys, games and books and would love the opportunity to look at anything that fits in with our family lifestyle. We are always out and about and offering an insight on the places we visit, with a passion for nature thrown in for good measure. If you like what you read please leave me a comment, I love to hear from people, and always try to reply. Enjoy the read.

  1. Monkey looks so cute as a Police Officer!! So grown up too. Hubby’s a policeman and there are quite a lot of police themed toys in our house – LP will definitely be getting a police outfit in the next year or so x
