My son Alex is a train freak and wants to dress up as a conductor for Halloween. The last few years we have had a bigger stroller with us because he does get tired, and out here in the boonies, not everyone gives out candy, and we do have to hoof it a bit at times. This year I decided that we should take the wagon with us, and hey, if we do, why don't I turn it into a train for my little conductor man? And so his costume project began...


Getting into it with his costume on


Full view from the front. The light is a flashlight so we can light our way at night Smiley


We usually have a bag attached to the stroller that we would put the heavier and bulkier things in that would take up room in their candy bags (chips and pop cans) but with all our crap hanging off the back, the stroller always tipped back and fell over... generally it was a pain in the ass. So for the wagon, I decided to use the box top flaps to keep an opening where we could secretly stash all our junk. I put a box inside so everything doesn't fly around loosely and our stuff will stay safe Smiley


The happiest little conductor in town saying "Cheese train!"


Thanks for looking!

That's amazing.  High fives for going all-out for Halloween!

If it had grown up, it would have made a dreadfully ugly child; but it makes rather a handsome pig, I think.

I think my schoolboy son will demand his stroller back when he sees this Grin Awesome mom award to you! This might even make a cool playhouse after halloween without the stroller.

So clever!  And really functional, no super tired-toddler, and a way to haul extra stuff too, all great.  It looks really nicely made too.  He's going to love to play with this costume long after Halloween!
