My six year old son is
in love with obsessed with Fix It Felix, Jr and the movie Wreck it Ralph. In fact, for his sixth birthday, he wanted to have a Fix It Felix, Jr. birthday party! We took the time to create his party (which I will share in a later post). The one gift he really wanted was a really Fix It Felix, Jr. costume. Since this is not something you can just order online at the Disney Store, we had to get creative and make our very own. We were able to do so, within our normal birthday gift budget, and make one little six year old very, very happy! Here is how you can make your very own Fix It Felix, Jr. Costume!
Locate a navy blue baseball cap, with no decorations on it. You can find one for $3.95 at Sport-Smart.
FIX IT FELIX, JR. HAT PATCH
Order this for $4.95 from A Little Crafty
You will want to find a plain, light blue button up shirt. This one is $8.99 right now at ShopKo.
FELIX NAME PATCH
You can find oval name patches several place. It has a navy background with white trim and font.
The font style is Brush Script.
You can find this for $4.95 at A Little Crafty.
Fix it Felix, Jr. wears brown work boots.
We found ours at Babies R Us – but any brown boots will work.
Felix needs tan work gloves. You might check out Orscheln for a pair.
FIX IT FELIX HAMMER AND TOOLBELT
Fix It Felix Jr needs his golden hammer!
Disney Store is where we found ours at Christmas, but they are currently out of stock.
We just sewed the patches onto the hat and shirt ourselves (but you can find someone to do this for you and they should not charge much). Keep in mind that our son already had a few of these items in his closet (like the shoes, gloves and hammer set), so we only had to add in the few extras to make the perfect costume. You can add as little or as much as you want to help your child take on the role of Fix it Felix, Jr.
As mentioned above, we created an entire Fix It Felix, Jr. party — from the invitations to the cake! I will share our photos with you very soon, so that if you want to have your own party, you might pick up an idea or two of your very own!
