As a mom of a little boy, super heroes and dress up are a HUGE part of our life.  My son dresses up daily in some kind of costume, and delves into imaginary play leaping from couch to couch, making secret hideouts in the backyard, fighting the bad guys in the basement, and the list goes on.  Needless to say, he was thrilled to receive his personalized PowerCape!   He immediately put it on and it has been a instant favorite, as he is now “Super Aaron” with his own cape and mask!   I love the high quality of the product and of course I love that it is Michigan made by a team of local moms and dads.

Here is their story:

PowerCapes is a team of Moms, Dads, Customer Service Heroes, Web Ninjas and Passionate People who have dedicated their lives to helping kids be real super heroes.

Started by Holly Bartman as a way to provide children with personalized super hero capes, PowerCapes has become the #1 destination for authentic super hero wear for kids (and adults, too!)

Their company is founded on the principles of giving back to the community and supporting children’s causes while making a fun, high quality, safe product

They have their own manufacturing facility in the Metro Detroit area where their production staff makes each product completely by hand one-at-a-time for children around the world.
