This founding father famously discovered electricity by flying a kite with a key attached to a string, and has become a legend larger than he would have ever expected to become in his life. The Ben Franklin Child Costume features a dark red satin jacket white ruffled cuffs and gold button accents, an attached vest, matching knickers, shoe covers, a white satin jabot with stylized trim, and a black tricorn hat. Ben Franklin was one of the country's most successful statesmen, acting as an integral part of the drafting of the American Constitution and serving as the Ambassador to France for several years. He is also credited with the invention of bifocals, the lightening rod, and the Franklin stove. This would be a wonderful costume to wear for a Fourth of July party or any other patriotic event.
