PowerCapes has Li’l Man on top of his game. Today he’s wearing it in celebrating National Super Hero Day.
Li’l Man is a fan of all things super hero. He has costumes to be any of The Avengers Super Heroes and more, but when the PowerCape arrived, there was a spark of delight because, it’s official, he’s his own kinda SuperHero.
In fact, like many Super Heroes, Li’l Man was able to design his own cape. He went with the infamous lightning bolt and his trademark “W” in a sparking material against a solid black cape:
The process of creation was fun and easy. It gave Li’l Man a preview of what his cape would look like before we committed. This allowed him to make it unique with no surprises. He had a blast just designing the cape.
Then the PowerCape arrived. The world shifted for him. The first thing he asked was, “Where are those sparkles?” When I showed him the back of the cape he gave it two thumbs up and winked while exclaiming, “The light is going to shimmer off that while I’m protecting the Universe! Beware villians!”
Then he put it on and walked outside. Here is the first picture I caught of him–it was like he was calling all his powers at this very moment.
Every day since receiving his custom PowerCape, Li’l Man has worn it. I have to insist he be a regular guy for school–y’know like Bruce Banner, Clark Kent, and the others. But when he’s not at school, this is a familiar site from my front door:
PowerCapes is awesome quality. Li’l Man has climbed trees, jumped curbs, ran like lightening and rode his bike, all while wearing this cape. It’s holding up to his tough regiment.
I love that things still exist in his world for him to call on his imagination to create play. He shares his adventures. He’s recruited our dog as his side-kick, Bailey Mae, The Wonder Dog. He’s doing things I’ve not been able to get him to before the PowerCape..things like taking our neighbors trashcans in after the garbage truck dumps them, picking up trash from the yard that blows in and even opening my car door when we are out and about.
Tomorrow (April 28) is National Super Hero Day, check out PowerCapes and make your kiddos next day SUPER and everyday a Super Hero Day!
