The little ones make their grand entrance in traditional costume
Children's costumes are a magical eye-catcher that most little ones love to wear. During the day, especially at the popular Mittagswiesn, the stage at the Oktoberfest belongs to the little ones. And when mum is strolling across the meadow in a chic Dirndl and dad in Lederhosen, it's only natural to dress the offspring accordingly.
Oktoberfest: costume-rompers and -bodysuits for babies
Many parents instil a love for Oktoberfest in their child's cradle. So it makes sense to start with the right clothes at an early age. Even the youngest children can start laying the fashionable foundation for future visits to the Oktoberfest. Babies in Wiesn rompers or traditional bodysuits are actually even cuter than an afternoon in the Café Kaiserschmarrn. There are real dirndls for children as young as six months, which shows that traditional clothing goes with everything - even nappies. Traditional shirts, jankers and felt hats are also available in sizes for this age. That's how you toast in style - with a spritzer, of course.
Traditional costume for toddlers consisting of shirt, T-shirt and crawling trousers
In their free time and until the right Lederhose or Dirndl fit, little boys and girls can wear comfortable cotton clothes in traditional costume style.Comfortable brown toddler trousers with a checked shirt convey the love of traditional costume just as beautifully and can cope with smaller and larger "nappy accidents" much better than the leather model. Little girls who can already walk can also wear the apron with their favourite dress and don't necessarily have to slip into a blouse and dirndl. Blouses are the part of traditional costume fashion that younger children don't particularly like to wear anyway. Here, white shirts, whether short or long-sleeved and with or without frills, are a good alternative. T-shirts with the traditional diamond pattern, Bavarian lettering ("Für Lausbuam") or regional motifs such as gentian, pretzels or gingerbread hearts are available in every size and ideal for leisure time. For adults rather a no-go, keyword "Wiesn-Fasching", but allowed for children.

Matching accessories to the children's costume
Children naturally have little interest in trendy bags and the like. Nevertheless, even the youngest ones don't have to do without cool accessories to go with the traditional look. In principle, there is nothing that is not available in a special Oktoberfest edition. Dummies with Bavarian appliqués, adorable leather-look crawling shoes or little traditional hats make the little ones look great.
Children's costumes: preferably voluntary
While babies and toddlers can usually be put into almost any outfit without complaint, it's a different story with older children. Here, personal taste should be taken into account so as not to deprive the offspring of the fun of wearing traditional costume. Some children feel dressed up in children's costumes and simply don't feel comfortable. If the son is not performing with the Schuhplattler club, or the daughter is on a mission to put up the traditional maypole, the Bavarian dress code should not be viewed too narrowly. Of course, children in traditional costumes are an enchanting sight, but no one should be forced to wear traditional costume to the Oktoberfest if they have not (yet) fallen for the charm of traditional fashion.
