If there is one thing children are brimming with, it's imagination. Children love to live out their fantasies through imaginative play. Whether they be a superhero ready to save the day, or maybe even a Cookie Bandit, ready to raid the next unsuspecting cookie jar that crosses their path, kids love to assume larger than life personas and incorporate them into their play.
I remember when I was little, I was a blankie girl. I had 2 worn out, sad little blankies that I would carry everywhere. I made Linus of Peanuts fame look like a blankie beginner! As I toted around my blue and yellow blankies, I would often find crazy ways to wear them. One of my favorite ways to wear them were like superhero capes! I would run around wildly with my blankie-cape pretending that I had super-human powers. I laugh thinking back on it now, but to a small child, this is very serious business!
That's why I was so excited to review the personalized superhero capes from Power Capes. You see, I have a devilish little girl who loves to wreak havoc and leave complete and utter destruction in her path. She must be pretending to be a whirlwind as she throws her toys (and anything else she can reach) all over the room! She reminds us of a mischievous villain, and I knew that one of the kids capes from Power Capes would just tie her whole look together perfectly.
What makes Power Capes so special? Well, their awesome capes are fully customizable and easy to create. They offer a wide variety of colors, emblems, and even offer initial capes! In addition to their kids capes, this company offers superhero capes for heroes of all sizes, from the tiniest sidekicks to the most burly adults! I can just picture my goofball husband running around in a cape making whoosh noises. Yes, this is something he would really do!
Power Capes is also a company with a heart. This company was founded by parents, and they have a strong dedication to giving back to the community through supporting various charities. One of my favorite programs that Power Capes is involved with is the SuperHero Heart Capes initiative. This wonderful program helps provide children born with congenital heart defects, also known as CHD, with their own personalized superhero capes! These children must endure invasive open heart surgeries, often from a very young age. This is a very frightening experience for a young child, and parents of CHD patients cannot always be present during these life-saving procedures. With their own Power Cape, these little patients can feel a little more brave as they face these often scary medical procedures. How great is that?!
I received a personalized Sidekick Superhero Cape for my review. I had so much fun creating the cape especially for my Sophie! I chose a purple cape with the glittery pink heart emblem. Inside this emblem is a big S, making this cape extra special for my little girl.
When my cape arrived, I immediately noticed the soft, satiny material and the great attention to detail in this fun garment. There was even rainbow colored stitching around the emblem, making it look really beautiful. The colors of the cape and emblem are rich, vibrant, and definitely capture a child's attention. Sophie just loves her purple and pink Power Cape, and had a blast running and twirling around in it!
This superhero cape is very well constructed and durable, ensuring years of fun, imaginative play. I also liked that my Power Cape has a velcro closure at the neck. I am not a fan of things that tie at the neck, especially on garments meant for small children. Power Capes is one step ahead of the game, as their awesome superhero capes are created with your child's safety in mind.
Overall, we are thrilled with our superhero cape from Power Capes, and we love what this company stands for. They provide unique, fun products that help inspire imagination and creativity. Kids will play for hours wearing these beautiful capes, and they will never run out of new adventures when they can be the hero! Power Capes has something for everyone, big or small, and they are also available for fundraisers. How fun would that be to offer superhero cakes for your next event? So much more fun than some melty candy bars or a stale tub of peanuts! And when purchasing Power Capes, you are also helping to support some fantastic causes. It just doesn't get much better than that!
