Or, your children can amaze their friends as an Awesome Egyptian, or look great as a Groovy Greek with our Horrible Histories costumes. Alternatively, the Willy Wonka costume from our extensive Roald Dahl Costumes fancy dress collection may just be the magic ticket for your little one to please the playground. As always, as with any Fancypanda fancy dress costume, your child's safety is our number one priority. With all of our costumes adhering to the strictest safety and quality standards, there's no reason why not to don an Enid Blyton costume or dress up as Peter Rabbit.
