Have you ever sat and watched a child in dress-up mode? As adorable as it is, it is also a priceless insight into the way children understand the world. Dressing up in costumes doesn’t have to be reserved for Halloween or party time, it is an important part of a child’s development that should be fostered at every opportunity.
While superheroes and princesses may be the go-to dress up characters, it really pays to think further afield. The more varied and enchanting the costume, the more scope there is for creativity and imagination to reign.
Inbal Carmi is an online store based in Israel that hand makes timeless costumes and dresses that have to be seen to be believed. Swans, deer, clowns, fairies and princesses are just a few of the high-quality costumes featured on their site. In fact, you could dress an entire magical fairy kingdom with costumes from Inbal Carmi.
There are also a stunning range of dresses, aprons and pinafores that you won’t regret browsing through.
If you are looking for a one-of-a-kind costume, a princess dress that will make them feel like a real princess, or a special heirloom outfit for your little one then check out Inbal Carmi on Marmalade Market. Not only are the costumes beautiful, but so is the back story. All these dress ups are handmade as part of a rehabilitation project to help people with special needs back into the workforce. So it’s play with a social conscience, if you like.
Inbal Carmi generally deliver within Israel but you can contact the shop for special shipping requests to Australia.
