I’m having a bit of a problem at the moment.  My two year old saw some of the more gruesome Halloween costumes in a shop last week, and now is terrified of the ‘scary monsters’.  It breaks my heart to hear him crying about the scary monsters in his room each night, but until now I haven’t known how to help him get over this terror.

However I think I’ve now found the perfect antidote. How cute are the little monsters on the Monster Couture beanbags and backpacks pictured below?!  I’m sure that having one of these friendly little monsters in his room would cure him of his monster phobia for good; they’re just so happy looking!

Monster Couture – www.monstercouture.com.au – are a new cousin of one of our favourite kids interiors brands, Cocoon Couture.

In conjuction with their sons, Monster Couture’s designers Ingrid Daniell and Melanie McLeod have created this new collection with kids who love all things spooky and kooky in mind. With the same high quality as the Cocoon Couture products, these backpacks and beanbags now feature the Monster Couture signature characters: Bat Star and Captain Shaggy!

The beanbags are the perfect Halloween gift, or put one away for Christmas – these make the perfect addition to your little monster’s room, kids looooove beanbags, after all!  And the backpacks and library bag are the ideal bags for trick or treat loot, plus they’ll get years of use out of them for school or pre-school afterwards too.  I really love this range and can’t wait to grab some of it for my household!

As befits this gorgeous range, Ingrid and Melanie are really getting into the Halloween spirit at the moment: they’re offering a 20% discount store-wide to KidStyleFile readers for the month of October. To place your order, email Monster Couture with your order and mention the code ‘KSFMC09′ by 31 October 2009 to scare 20% off your order.

As well as that, you can download your FREE Bat Star or Captain Shaggy Halloween mask right here.  These will be perfect for trick or treating – nobody will ever see through these costumes! ;)
