There is hardly an American child alive who doesn’t go through a superhero fantasy phase. When my daughter decides she wants to be Wonder Woman, or Super Girl, or The Amazing Flying Ballerina-Lawyer, I will happily indulge her. But not with those scary dioxin-emitting plastic costumes from the store.
Instead, check out the superhero capes from mom and designer Jennifer Cooper of Ellie Bellie Kids. Each one is handmade in one of two colorful, modern fabrics. Best of all, you can personalize the cape with an initial for either your kid’s name, or that of his superhero alter ego.
Which, with these beautiful cotton capes, will most certainly not be the Toxic Avenger. -Liz
