World Book Day returns for its 19 year on Thursday 3rd March and here at Hollywood we have safety in mind. As you may have seen recently there has been much talk about the safety requirements surrounding children’s fancy dress costumes. Buying fake fancy dress can be a huge problem, especially online where you cannot see what you are purchasing. Here at Hollywood we only buy from responsible suppliers such as Smiffy’s! So when you’re buying your child’s World Book Day fancy dress costume, you can do so with piece of mind here at Hollywood.

Your little one can be Alex the lion, Melman the giraffe, Gloria the hippo, Marty the zebra, King Jullian the lemur or even one of the adorable penguins!
