We bet you’ve heard of Uncle Sam. You could probably even describe him and his favorite catch-phrase thanks to famous old World War II posters. But we bet you couldn’t tell us much about our nation’s uncle beyond the fact that he loves bespangled clothes and sports some killer facial hair.
Did you know he actually first showed up in 1775? And the first time he was mentioned, he was buying onions and pancakes to bring home to his family. It took a while for him to become the symbol of the U.S. (originally, of the U.S. government), and some people say he was actually based on a meat packer who sent rations to troops during the War of 1812. He didn’t get his iconic red-white-and-blue look until the 1860s, though, thanks to political cartoonist Thomas Nast (the same guy who created the modern Santa Claus image and who helped the Democratic and Republican parties choose their animal mascots). Oh, and he used to run around with Brother Jonathan, who symbolized the U.S. as a whole, until Brother Jonathan sort of fell off the face of the earth.
Basically, Uncle Sam has had a long and interesting history—and now your kid wants to help keep his story alive by dressing up like him. Great! We have just the thing: this Youngster Uncle Sam Costume. It includes a bright blue cutaway tailcoat that has wide red and white striped lapels, along with red and white striped pants. There’s also a red and white bow tie sewn into the coat’s neckband (the undershirt isn’t included), and a jaunty red-white-and-blue felt hat that’s covered in patriotic stars. Your youngster will look just like Uncle Sam in this costume... except for that awesome white goatee. We're afraid the kid is on their own for that. Good luck.
