tell you, mischievous adventures aren't nearly as fun without a
cape to complete the creative persona.
And, if you're like me, and prefer to keep your towels in the
linen closet instead of around your child's neck, then the
surprisingly vast selection of hero capes (some with matching masks) from Mommy
Couture Designs will definitely be up your super mom alley.
Made by Baby Leo, each silky smooth, 100% handmade cape is
designed for kids ages 3-10, adorned with everything from blue
bolts to flowers with power, dinos, rockets and more, all lined
with velvety soft chamois for the ultimate in superhero
Have a younger copycat?
No problem. Choose the sidekick size for kids ages 2-4 to get in
on the pretend play.
The capes fasten easily around the neck with a soft snap
closure, but honestly, I wish they had some kind of shirt
attachment for tots like mine who don't like the feeling of

beyond the confines of the playroom - perhaps even to infinity and
