Is your child's dress-up box in need of some excitement?

Shop the sales on the day after Halloween. They're a little kid's dream.

It's a great time to pick up everything from fairy wings to firefighter uniforms to spacesuits.

Halloween costumes are especially wonderful for little boys who have fewer dress-up choices the rest of year.

Happy costume hunting!
