5 Fun World Book Day Costumes

Did you know that World Book Day is fast approaching? This year on Thursday 5th March, prepare your little ones for the biggest annual dress up day at school. We staked out Jokers’ Masquerade, our fancy dress retailer of choice, who offer Collect Plus as part of their delivery options, and discovered a few costume ideas that are absolutely perfect for this year’s big event.


Willy Wonka
The Willy Wonka kids’ costume is officially endorsed by the Road Dahl costumes range and brings Quentin Blake’s illustration to life. A classic book and a classic character. Send your little one off to school looking smart and ready for fun.


Little Miss Sunshine
At some point in our lives we have likely all become familiar with the Mr. Men and Little Miss range of children’s books. With an array of colourful and inspiring characters, we think that the Little Miss Sunshine costume is ideal for your little miss to become a Little Miss!

The Gruffalo
The kids Gruffalo costume, although probably more suited to the boys, is an outfit that the girls can also get into! Fun, striking and memorable, this outfit is one that will bring a smile to people’s faces throughout the day.


The Very Hungry Caterpillar
Does your child regularly eat their bodyweight in food? Then look no further than The Very Hungry Caterpillar costume! We think that your little ones would look superb kitted out in this official outfit based on the iconic book of the same name.

Where’s Wally
Don’t worry, we haven’t forgotten about World Book Day costumes for teachers too! If the kids are dressing up it’s only natural that the teachers and even parents should be looking the part as well. The grown-up Where’s Wally costume is simple, recognisable and fun. Just think of the photo opportunities!
