Cowboys are timeless and a huge part of this country’s heritage. It’s no wonder kids love to dress up in Child Toddler Cowboy Costumes and Outfits for Halloween or Western Parties.
When many of us hear the term “Cowboy” we think of the old West and the cowboys we see in movies. We also think of ranches, horses, rodeos and cowgirls. We picture a rugged man who stands on a foundation of simple principles. Honor, Respect, Truth and Family.
I grew up with John Wayne, Roy Rogers, Dale Evans, Gene Autry and the Lone Ranger regularly on TV. Sunday night TV meant Bonanza. We also had The Rifleman and Gunsmoke.
Kids love dressing up as their favorite cowboy or cowgirl. Follow the links or click on the photos to see all the exciting Cowboy and Cowgirl Outfits available. Here are some of our favorite outfits.
Unless you live in a rural area or involved with Horse activities, you don’t see much of today’s cowboy.
Horse activities are a major part of many peoples lives. With horses, you always find cowboys.
Over time, cowboys of the American West developed a certain persona.
Many kids who grow up in cities develop a fascination and love of horses. Even if they aren’t able to own their own horse, they dream of Riding Horses and love to dress up like a Cowboy or Cowgirl and collect stuffed horses..
Maybe more so than kids that grow up on farms and ranches who tend to take their lifestyle for granted.
Kids in the city, want to be on a ranch in the country while kids on the farms want to take off for the cities. They always think the grass is greener.
Two of the most popular Cowboy Outfits this year are from the hit movie Toy Story.
Toy Story’s Cowboy Sheriff Woody and Cowgirl Jessie Costumes are so popular, they are available in every size.
You can find these costumes in Infant, Toddler, Child, Teen, Adult and Plus Size. The whole family can participate in the Toy Story Theme by wearing one of the Toy Story character costumes.
Toy Story follows a group of toys who come to life whenever their owner is not present. The dilemmas and adventures of these adorable animated characters are fun and enjoyable to follow.
Two of the main characters are Cowboy Sheriff Woody and Jessie the yodeling Cowgirl.
Movie and TV personality costumes are always a big hit with kids. They want to dress up and look like their favorite characters.
Jessie is a fictional character who is one of the three featured in the Toy Story 2 and Toy Story 3. Jessie the doll has a character very similar to the one portrayed on the television show. She is excitable, brave and very athletic.
I don’t know why, but Little girls love Pink.
They want to dress their horses up in Pink and they want to deck themselves out in Cowgirl Outfits like the Wild West Cutie on the left.
Girls love to dress their horses in pink saddles, saddle pads, halters and boots.
Then to really make these Pink crazy gals happy, give them the pink chaps, pink cowgirl hat, pink boots, pink spurs and pink shirt. Everything PINK!
Do you remember the song that Glen Campbell made famous?
“Like a Rhinestone Cowboy”
Our little girl likes the Rhinestone Cowgirl!
Our Pink Cowgirl and our Rhinestone Cowgirl are two of our favorite outfits.
We certainly can’t leave our dogs out of the fun.
Rough and tough Cowboy Doggies costumes are a favorite.
After all, after the horse, the Cowboy’s best friend is his dog.
A blend of tough, hard-working individuals who stand up for others and what is right and justice.
They valued chivalry, honesty and independence. Today’s cowboy and cowgirl are still a large part of America. You can find them managing their ranches and farms or at rodeos, county fairs and other livestock events.
