“He wore a tall pointed grey hat, a long grey cloak, and a silver scarf. He had a long white beard and bushy eyebrows that stuck out beyond the brim of his hat.”-The Fellowship of the Ring, “A Long-expected Party” We don’t think we’re the only ones who like to imagine Gandalf the Gray as a kid… We’re sure that even a short statured version of the legendary wizard had quite a bit of panache. Now whether or not he was able to grow a beard at an early age? That’s up for debate. Personally, we stand on the side that believes that Olórin (did you know that was his original name? It means “Dreamer” or “Of Dreams”!) had to be born with at least a little bit of stubble. Maybe it’s a wizard thing! Besides, even if it’s not true, it’s still pretty hilarious to think of Gandalf as a pint-sized dude, playing hide and seek or running a game of tag with his little buddies!So if your little guy loves Gandalf and wants nothing more than to take after the wisest wizard of all, we think this The Hobbit Kids Gandalf Costume is a dead-ringer (geddit?) for what Gandalf probably looked like when he was growing up! This lightweight robe is the perfect thing for your child to wear when he’s singing harmony with his friends or setting out on daring quests to save the world. It even comes with Gandalf’s famous hat! Add a beard for your little buddy to stroke thoughtfully, a magic wand to practice magic tricks with, and they’ll be ready for some legendary imaginary play in their own magical world!
