Parents looking at fresh ideas for cute Halloween costumes for kids on parenting site have so much to consider: the famous poop emoji, sparkly-sunglasses clad Elton John, members of the ’70s disco band Abba, and the State Farm guy seen in commercials.

“Like a good neighbor, State Farm is there, and all your neighbors will get a laugh out of this Jake from State Farm costume,” the columnist wrote, promoting a premade costume that includes a red polo embroidered with the company logo, plus Jake’s name.

For parents looking for sibling costumes, a good counterpart to Jake is Flo from Progressive Insurance, donning a brunette wig and signature red-lipped smile.

“Progressive’s commercials have been especially funny this year (I love the ones telling new homeowners how not to become their parents), and if you’re really looking to dial up the humor, you could be Dr. Rick from those ads,” the columnist added.
