This is such a complete police uniform! If your son or daughter wants to look like an authentic public servant, this is the costume to get. It is lacking a weapon, but Little Boy swiped his sister's nerf gun, and the look was complete. The holster is only made of vinyl, so it was not long before some rough use caused it to rip. (I could fix it on my sewing machine, but already I am trying to think of what we will use to replace it, because drawing and replacing your weapon causes wear!) The embroidered badge and seals make the wearer look very official. Note that, while the buttons are real, there are no button holes. Instead there is a strip of velcro behind the buttons (which in my opinion makes everyone's life easier. There is enough small motor skill practice with putting on the belt. 5-year-old needs help with the belt). The pants are nothing special; they just slip on, elastic waste band, no pockets. My favorite features are the cap (SO darned cute!) and the big POLICE across the back shoulders. Costume comes with a whistle, too, which we "lost" if you know what I mean, but it worked well, that's for sure. All in all, Little Boy loves it, and the hours of imaginative play have been worth the cost of this product.
Cute costume but runs small and only held closed in back by Velcro so it was constantly coming undone- I had to safety pin all down the back to keep on my daughter.
I got this for my 7 year old. She's tall and thin, but not overly for her age. We ordered the large expecting it to be big, and it is tiny on her. I cannot even trust that the velcro at the top/rear will stay closed so I am planning on pinning it on Halloween. It is a very cute costume, but it runs extremely small. I would guess the large is more of a 6/6x.
