Frugal Family Fun: Powercapes Review & Giveaway!

Powercapes Review & Giveaway!

In this day and age, there are lots of images on TV and in the media that leave our kids feeling inadequate.  I think this is very sad, and that we should take every opportunity to show our kids how super they are!! Since my kids were very little I have had little nicknames for them that show how great I think they are! My oldest is the Amazing Shae-Shae, my middle is Super Summer and my youngest is Serenity the Great.  I believe that by telling them they are wonderful, it will boost their self esteem. If I believe they are great they will too.  


One way to have fun with this is to play superheroes! We can put our nicknames to use and save the day! And what superhero is complete without a superhero cape? Of course, I am just not crafty enough to make my own. Haha.  I wish, but no such talent.  However, PowerCapes makes some absolutely amazing custom or personalized superhero capes at great prices!!  I am a huge fan!!

S

PowerCapes sent me this Kids Cape for my girls.  Since they all have the same first initial, it is perfect to share!! At $24.99 each, they are a little bit pricey for me to buy 3.  At least not all at once.  So I was really glad they were able to share it (And they actually didn't mind taking turns!!!)  This is a great idea if you are like me and can't afford one for each kid.  Even if you have one, it is fun to take turns being the hero and the person in need.  And don't worry if your kids all have different initials!!  They have a lot of different styles. I preferred the initial with the crown icon.  They offer solid colored capes, custom capes, initial capes, wristbands and so much more!!

Powercapes are a great gift for any child any time of year! They are even popular with celebrity moms! They are easy to put on and take off! They have a velcro attachment in the front to make it really easy!  And you can even find some for you! Make the whole family a superhero family!! So much fun!!!  Best of all, they are American made! You know that your money is helping to contribute to our economy and you are getting a great quality product!! Powercapes rock!!!

  26. I love their custom capes and the way they show you what it'll look like as you choose your colors, emblem, and letter. I created a blue cape with a yellow lightning bolt and a sparkly red "G" for Gordon!
