The scent of pumpkin spice is in the air, the weather is getting crisper, and that means Halloween will be here before you know it. This year, tackle your kids’ Halloween costumes early so it’ll be smooth sailing the day of — whether you’re taking the fam trick-or-treating or just looking for an adorable photo op for your baby. We’ve rounded up some of our faves, including Disney toddler Halloween costumes, easy onesie baby Halloween costumes, and matching costumes for the whole family (including the pup).

A toddler Halloween costume that’s an ode to their favorite monster movie…

Dress ‘em up as arguably Disney’s cutest (and most humanlike) monster ever, Boo from Monsters, Inc. This costume is a perfect imitation of the character — googly eyes, mop hair, purple skin, and all. The only thing that could make this better? Matching Mike and Sulley costumes for the whole family. ($45.29, Walmart)

Cozy family Halloween costume options…

These matching onesies, made from 100% polyester, have the cutest monster accents — like a horned hoodie and monster spiked sleeves. Customers say they fit well and true to size, and that their kids loved wearing ’em long after the holiday was over. BTW, these come in two other styles — a bat and pumpkin design — and adult sizes too, perfect for the whole family. New PJ obsession, coming right up. ($30, Old Navy)

A pumpkin onesie for fussy babies…

If your trick-or-treater isn’t old enough to truly appreciate their Halloween costume yet, this easy onesie is your safest route to getting ’em in the holiday spirit. Pair it with some footie leggings and soft pumpkin booties for a successful (and adorable) look. ($17.47+, Amazon)

A handwoven Baby Yoda costume for newborns…

Because you’re never too young to get in the spirit. It’s made of 100% crocheted cotton and comes with a brown robe, bright green booties, gloves, and a hat featuring Baby Yoda’s droopy eyes and huge ears. It’s soft enough for your baby’s sensitive skin, and super breathable and lightweight so they won’t overheat. ($24.99, Amazon)

A hilarious matching parent-and-baby Halloween costume…

They’ll get a little lobster hat that fits babies 6–18 months and a lobster carrier cover that attaches to your own baby carrier. And you’ll get a one-size-fits-all apron and chef’s hat for a coordinating costume that’s sure to have everyone smiling. Even if you’ve got a fussy baby and can just get in a pic for the ‘gram? Worth it. ($41, Amazon)

A coordinated “rock, paper, scissors” costume perfect for a group of three…

And they can fit a variety of age ranges — one customer even had a kid, teen, and adult family member dress up in these getups. Just slip one of the grips over your head for the “scissors” costume, and use the shoulder straps and waist ties for “paper” and “rock.” ($39.99, Amazon)

A kid Halloween costume that’ll turn ’em into a dino wrangler…

This fun costume will be a delight for both you and your kiddo. It comes in three different sizes that’ll fit 2- to 10-year-olds and inflates with the included battery pack. Note that batteries aren’t included, so be sure to snag some AA batteries before the big day. ($37.99+, Amazon)

A costume that takes a cue from their favorite catchy song…

At least this one won’t drive the adults in the house crazy thanks to its song-optional design. It’s made of soft fleece and comes with a sound chip that’ll play the tune we all know and love (or, y’know, love to hate). It comes in three sizes — small, infant, and toddler — and you can also make it a family affair by snagging the matching mommy and daddy shark costumes while you’re at it. ($19.99+, Amazon

A baby Halloween costume that’ll perk you right up…

They’ll be the cutest cup o’ joe around thanks to this costume’s overwhelming use of tulle (aka whipped cream). It comes with a little straw and whipped cream headband, and a white and green tutu. Customers love the high-quality fabric, but rec sizing up for the perfect fit. Psst…if you wanna match, just wear a black shirt and pair it with this green apron to really channel your inner barista. Grab a matching getup for your pup while you’re at it too. ($21.40+, Amazon)

A kids costume good enough to sail the seas with…

This one’s got all the makings of the ultimate Halloween pirate costume. It comes with an eye patch, captain’s hat, swashbuckling sword, and signature pirate shirt and vest. Pair it with jeans for a more casual look, or snag some cool pirate pants to really commit to the character. ($33.56, QVC
