    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. Why not set up your own Zoo at home or in the classroom with this free Zoo Dramatic play pdf.

    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 a wash temperature of as low as possible and a maximum of 40°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 cotton and can be ironed on a medium heat, taking care to avoid areas of embroidery and reflective tape.

    Reasons to choose

    My Little Uniform


    Career role-play helps children develop positive relationships with people in their community. When children put on a costume they transform, taking on new mannerisms and attitudes. They can explore the roles and responsibilities of their new persona through play and have a lot of fun.


    Sustainability is at the core of everything we design. All our costumes are made with Oeko-Tek certified, 240+gsm cotton. Reinforces seams and hems ensure all our costumes will last for years of play. Every design is tested rigorously with over 40 wash cycles to ensure it is suitable for regular wear.

    Play based learning

    Dramatic play is an important part of early childhood. Through play, children learn to express themselves and their ideas, to negotiate with others, think creatively, and solve problems. Dramatic play introduces a whole new vocabulary and helps children understand the way the world works.

      I have purchased over 10 Role play outfits and i am very happy with them all. They have provided hours of entertainment for the children and has allowed them to express themselves in many different ways and some have even been able to dress like “Mummy” or “Daddy”when they go off to work !
      The qua;ity of the outfits is excellent and they wash very well.
