Customized Super Hero Capes for Children from Power Capes

                        My little Super Hero Josh in his new Power Cape

Power Capes is a company located in Detroit that sells handmade customized super hero capes for boys and girls. They also offer adult capes, complete children's super hero costume and customized power cuffs with a mask. You can choose a pre-made cape that they already have in stock for faster shipping or you can order a cape in the color, emblem and letter of your choosing. Their website has an easy to use application that walks you through the process of designing your own cape. Regular children's super hero capes are priced at $24.99 which is a good price for a personalized item your kid will love.

I selected one of the pre-made  sidekick capes from Power Capes to review with my three year old Josh. Josh is in what I call the magical stage of childhood. Between the ages of three and eight children are able to fully comprehend things and communicate and they have that sense of wonder and believe in fairy tales and super heroes. Everything is fun and magical at this age and I wish it lasted longer. Josh's cape arrived nicely packaged and he was very excited to open it. He loves to wear it outside and run throught the yard yelling "It's Super Josh!". The sizing on Power Capes is pretty accurate, I ordered the size Small (children's sizes 2-7) and it fits him well. The cape is held together in the front with velcro. If you have little ones who can't do buttons and snaps yet like Josh velcro is great, they can dress themselves without getting frustrated. The Power Cape we received is made of good quality material, I have washed it twice and it shows no signs of shrinking, fading or fraying.

Power Capes sells items other than capes as I previously mentioned. You can check out some of my favorite items from their site at my pinboard on Pinterest HERE. Power Capes supports many children's charities and employs US workers to lovingly make each Power Cape by hand.
