At Kid'z Therapy where speech-language pathologist Miriam Strassberg works, the 3 to 5-year-old students love Halloween.

Not wanting to disappoint, Strassberg came to Long Island Costume in Hauppauge Sunday to find the perfect kid-friendly disguise.

First she went for a pizza costume, dressing up as a giant slice of a mushroom and pepperoni pie. Other shoppers weighed in and decided the idea was cute, but the costume wasn't right.

A bright green and purple hippie look wasn't recognizable enough for the young kids to enjoy, and a Crayola crayon box was too big on her petite frame.

In the end it was between Peter Pan and Jessie from "Toy Story," and Jessie was the winner. "Toy Story 3" is a popular movie right now, and everyone decided the kids would like it best.

You can watch the shopping spree on video, and vote for which costume you like best.
