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.

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

  1. Siobhan wehrley

    What can I say we got the Garda hat in post today I am over the moon with it outstanding quality, great price wee boy can’t wait to wear it in school play would highly recommend thank you ?

  2. Alex Bacik

    I got this hat to go with the Garda uniform for my four year old daughter. It’s really well made, from the head band and lining to the Garda insignia. I would definitely recommend this as part of the outfit, and I do think it’s well worth the price.

  3. Stefan Hamilton

    I bought this with the Garda uniform for my 5 year old son and the bits of detailing really make it. He’s delighted with it. It’s well worth it on its own or if you are buying the uniform.
    A great buy and a great service too from Mermaids and Dragons

  4. Caoimhe

    The quality is unlike anything I’ve seen in play costumes before and I just love that it’s a Garda hat and not a generic policeman hat. We will definitely be adding to our collection in the future!

  5. Ruth Byrne

  11. Amy Casey

    The best quality, best value and most realistic hat ever. The detail is unbelievable….my son has not stopped wearing it since he got it……a real Garda ran up to him yesterday to compliment his hat…..and he was thrilled with himself. Goes brilliantly with the Garda costume….my mum was a dress maker and she cannot believe the detail and quality int the outfits and for the price they are…definitely worth it…will be buying up the rest of the outfits soon 🙂 Thank you Lucy xx

    I bought this Garda cap for my granddaughters birthday to go with the uniform I bought for her at Christmas. She’s been dressing up in the uniform since she got it, so it made sense to complete the outfit. Once again the cap is high quality and very realistic, it could pass for the real thing. Thanks again Lucy at Mermaids and Dragons

  18. ollie o brien

    the garda cap was very well made thanks again

  19. Emma

    My son deemed it necessary to order the hat when we ordered the Garda costume. He usually doesn’t wear hats but has happily worn this for the most part. It is a bit big so moves at times.

    Purchased for my 3.8 year old son. Got the 55cm as he would typically size up in shops but the 53cm probably would have fit fine. He absolutely loves the hat, it really makes the whole costume. The quality is great, I can see this hat lasting well. You cannot compare these items with cheaper dress up products in generic stores, the quality and realistic finish is top notch 👌
