The first of September, and lots of parents are starting to focus on back to school! It only takes about 1 week before the ‘little darlings’ start to come home with notes for one thing or another! Quite often these notes have something to do with your children dressing up at school.
Schools realise that children learn so much more when they can actually take part in the lesson being taught and this is why it has become so popular for schools to ask you for various kids costumes. We understand that sometimes providing these costumes can get pricey, especially if you have more than one child attending, and this is why we have a huge range of childrens’ costumes at very competitive prices.
Over the next few days, we will look at the various curriculum costumes that your child may require, but today we’d like to bring your attention to one very important thing – THE LAW!!!!
Childrens costumes are governed by legislation that protects your children to a certain degree. All kids costumes have to be tested to EN71. Take a look at our information page on childrens costume and the law as it will give you all the information you need.
Why not take a look at our entire range of children fancy dress costumes?
Also, the 1st of September and in Uzbekistan they’re celebrating the tenth anniversary of their Declaration of Independence from the Soviet Union (although it took a few more months for the paper-work to be completed). Being as we’re a little short on National Dress for that part of the world, we have to look to something else to celebrate, and what better than Emma M. Nutt Day?
Although this sounds like something to do with those coloured sweets (for which you can, apparently, find costumes), it actually celebrates the world’s first female telephonist hired, by inventor Alexander Graham Bell, to work at the Boston Exchange in America. Apparently whilst males had proved good at wireless telegraphy, they were less trustworthy when it came to the spoken word, and so Bell decided to see if a female could undertake the task more responsibly. He hired Mrs Nutt, the wife of one of his telegraphers, to start work on Sept 1st 1878 and within a few hours her sister Stella joined her to become the world’s second female operator and also create the first sister act in telephony. So what theme do we suggest today? ‘Communications’? ‘For some, opportunity knocks, but you have to give a girl a ring’? Or, going back to those M & M costumes ‘Sweet Talk’. Ring us up and let’s have a chat!
