Halloween just got a whole lot wilder with these critter costumes for kids and babies. Furry get-ups will keep your little ones warm whether they dress as a baby bat or a terrifying T-Rex.

This Halloween, why not take inspiration from our furry or feathered friends? Thanks to their plush designs, animal costumes are usually cute and always cozyperfect for chilly trick-or-treating weather. Is your child interested in looking more creepy than cuddly? Try a shark on for size. Whichever animal you choose, they're sure to rule the animal kingdom.
