    Whether it is feeding the elephants, cleaning up chimpanzee poo, or waiting for the arrival of a baby giraffe, a zookeeper spends their day outdoors and on the move.

    The life of a zookeeper is a busy one and pockets are essential. Along with 2 pockets on the jacket, there are 2 more on the cargo-style trousers. There is also a sturdy zip which is easy for little fingers to open and close and a nice wide collar keeps the wind off during cold days. In addition, an elasticated waist and cuffs make for a comfy, cosy fit in this breathable cotton costume.

    This children’s zookeeper role-play costume is designed to be incredibly durable with heavy-duty seams, hems, and cuffs. It is also made with vibrant cotton twill so it can be machine washed at the end of a long day outdoors in all weathers, which really is essential when you are working at the Zoo.

    The perfect gift for any budding young zookeeper.

    Available in 3 sizes, all our role-play dress-up costumes are generously sized and are designed to allow for growth. We recommend choosing your child’s regular clothing size.

    Garment Care

    All our My Little Uniform dress-up costumes are made to be hardwearing and long lasting so that your little one can have hours of fun dressing up as their favourite character. To make sure your new uniform stays in top condition we recommend the following:

    Washing and Drying

    Each uniform can be machine washed and tumble dried. We recommend and wash temperature of 30°C. Drying outdoors will prolong the life of your new costume but in the event that tumble drying is required we recommend a low temperature dry cycle.


    It may be unusual to iron a children’s costume but, our role-play uniforms are 100% cotton and can be ironed on a medium heat, taking care to avoid areas of embroidery and reflective tape.

    For more detailed information and for advice on caring for our Garda Síochána caps, Pilot caps, and Army berets please review our Garment Care Guideline

    Costume care Guide Notes
    30°C wash cycle
    Close zips, fasteners and velcro
    Line dry preferable. Low heat tumble dry.

    The dimensions specified are the dimensions of the costume itself. For accurate sizing we recommend comparing the dimensions below to a child’s regular clothing such as a pair of leggings/jeans and or jacket or coat.  As a general rule we recommend choosing the costume size that most closely matches your child’s current outdoor coat. All designs are generous in size and are designed to provide growing room. We do not recommend “sizing up” If you require assistance with sizing please contact us.
