My toddler has recently become obsessed with super heroes. It started during our trip to Japan last summer, when he fell in love with their biggest super hero, Anpanman. Not only can fly, his face is made of a bun filled with sweet red bean paste that he feeds to people in danger!
In the past few weeks, he upped his super hero obsession with the request for a cape. Being the frugal mom that I am, I whipped up a "cape" using a diaper pad changing cover and a chips clip. He loved it, but looked hilarious!
Suffice it to say, we were both super excited to run across a company selling actual capes!! That's right, Great Pretenders has a whole line of capes and costumes for kids! From super hero sets with matching cape, masks, and wrist bands, to lady bugs, fairies, princesses, and even a variety of color-your-own costumes, they've got whatever your little one desires!!
We went ahead and got the Adventure Toddler Cape in Blue, and from the moment my son laid eyes on it, he's been alllllll over it!! Thankfully, he seems to understand the need to take it off to eat, use the bathroom, sleep, and leave the house (we wouldn't want to get it dirty, now would we!?). It's also been a great tool in negotiating... Turns out he'll do just about anything I ask in order to keep wearing his cape! HA!
The cape is veru silky which is fun, like a super hero cape and magician at once! The inside of the collar is made of a super soft material so it's not scratchy at all, and it's a nice size for a toddler (not too big but it actually was able to fasten even around my husband's neck - I'll spare you the ridiculous photo of that!).
And now, the moment you've all been waiting for... the super hero in action (he literally does this all day long!!!)
