My kids are really into dress-up! Now that my daughter has learned how to change her clothes by herself, she will do it up to 5 times a day! Yes I know that's a lot of washing!!! She even has a supergirl costume and her Dora Halloween costume that she will wear for the whole day (along with me begging her to change when we have to go out). So I thought it would only be appropriate to start expanding my dress-up collection with items for my son. I was thrilled to get a chance to review the PowerCapes personalized superhero capes!
Started by Holly Bartman as a way to provide children with personalized super hero capes, PowerCapes has become the #1 destination for authentic super hero wear for kids (and adults, too!)
My Take: I know this might sound terrible but once I saw that Tori Spelling had these capes for her kids I felt super cool to have one for my son. He loves to pretend that he is a superhero but he doesn't really like to dress up. I've tried putting his sister's supergirl cape on him and he hates it. I think part of the problem is his sensitive skin. He doesn't like the feel of certain things on his skin so I was really apprehensive about how he would react to his PowerCape. Lucky me, I was pleasantly surprised. He loved it! He ran around with his sister fighting off bad guys (his sister included) and jumping off of things! I loved the fact that it was personalized. There was a "D" on the back (for his first name) and it was in his favorite colors. There was no way he could get it mixed up with anything of his sisters.
Which brings me to the PowerCapes site! Talking about amazing. It's super interactive which makes it simple to design your cape. First you pick the size from 3 visual sizes (along with written measurements), then the color, one of eight emblems, and a letter. As you make your choices it will show up on the little person preview image so you can see exactly what it would look like on your little one. I chose the orange one which you can see my son posing in above! It was a quick process and I got my cape in ample time.
Buy it: You can visit the PowerCapes site and design your own superhero cape! And yes I do mean your own! They even have capes for adults so you can match with your kiddos. I just might have to get me one! =) There are also superhero masks, blaster cuffs, and shirts. Prices for personalized capes are on sale now for $24.99!
