Disney’s Wreck-It Ralph is an adorable, funny movie perfect for kids of all ages (even the grown-up ones). One of the key characters in the original movie is Felix, Jr. He fixes everything Ralph breaks in their game and is loved by everyone. My son also fell in love with him and wanted to dress up like him. I found all the items needed and created his own custom Fix-It Felix, Jr. Costume.
After we saw the movie, my then five-year-old son became obsessed with all things Felix. We found him a Fix-It Felix stuffed doll. But, that wasn’t enough for him. He wanted to BE Felix.
For his sixth birthday in 2013, I took to doing what I could to make him the perfect Fix-It Felix, Jr. costume. I could not find one online at the time. That lead me to make my own. I found everything we needed to create the gift that thrilled him the most that year.
FIX-IT FELIX, JR COSTUME
Creating the costume started with jeans. That was easy. But, there was the hat, shirt, patches and boots I had to find. And, at the time, Disney even sold the hammer and belt! To finish the look I added a pair of gloves and the result was my own real-life Fix-It Felix!!
You might be able to find some of these items at your local stores, so I would start there. But, if you can’t find what you need, there are plenty of online retailers who can take care of you!
His hat is blue with an embroidered FF on it. If you can’t find a plain navy blue ball cap, you can find one online. And, you gotta love Etsy as you can find just about anything you need there too! That’s where I found the patch. I took it to a local seamstress and she sewed it on for me.

FIX IT FELIX HAMMER AND TOOLBELT
Fix It Felix Jr needs his golden hammer!
It is currently out of stock, but you can find any toy plastic hammer and add a belt.
We were fortunate that we already had several of these items on hand, so did not have to buy them. But, it was a lot of fun putting the costume together! And, remember, you can hire a seamstress or someone who does alterations to sew your patches on as well.
The icing on the cake was his Fix-It Felix, Jr. Birthday party complete with wrecking walls, brick Krispie treats, and his “pie” cake. We rocked this kid’s world with his costume and party. These are both easy to do and perfect for the Fix-It Felix, Jr. fan in your life.
