True Old School CoolHistory is cool. We know, we know. Some people think it’s actually not cool to think that, but just look at all of the awesome stuff Ben Franklin did during his lifetime! Let’s see… first, there are the countless inventions that he created, like the Franklin stove that helped keep people warm during winter. Then, there are bifocals, which are largely unchanged from his design to this today. If that wasn’t enough, the dude even created his own instrument called the glass armonica! Oh, and did we mention that he helped write the America Declaration of Independence? Yeah, Ben Franklin was like the Elon Musk of his time… except Ben started a brand new country, held the title as the first Postmaster General of the United States, and earned his place on the hundred dollar bill!If that’s not cool, we don’t know what is. That’s also why we happen to think that this Boy’s Colonial Benjamin Franklin Costume is one of the coolest costumes a kid can wear!Design & DetailsThis historical costume is based on one of the greatest figures in American history!
