Who wants to be a robot? OK, now, who wants to be a robot that lights up?

This child’s hoodie features LED lights in the control panel that can be easily switched on and off and also removed for washing. For a little extra light-up action, knit the control panel and the sweater’s I-cord edgings out of glow-in-the-dark yarn. Corrugated sleeves provide that Cold War robot chic. What a great way to light your path of mechanical mayhem on Halloween or any other day of the year.

If you're like me, then knitting a costume for Halloween seems crazy for two reasons:

1. the idea of knitting something that will be worn once pierces you to the core
2. your kid does not always like to call attention to him- or herself

This sweater is ideal for you then, because in the daylight, with the LED lights taken out, this looks like a regular hoodie. It can therefore be worn year-round and only signals its secret robot identity when and if the child wishes.
