Kids Superhero Capes | by Superkid Capes | http://emmalinebaby.com/kids-superhero-capes/

Kids superhero capes are one of my favorite new finds. There is nothing inherently new about superhero capes: they’ve been around for decades. But there is something new about these kids superhero capes I spotted at Superkid Capes: each one is handmade and customized for your little superhero.

But before we get to that, can I comment about how ridiculously expensive kids costumes have become? I ogled some adorable baby costumes online and they were upwards of $50. For a costume. Worn for ONE day (if you’re lucky, you get them to stay in it for a couple of hours!) That’s quite a markup. Anyways, what are your little ones going to be this year? I’ve been trying to decide for the boys this year and so far it’s down to Star Wars (influenced heavily by Daddy) and Paw Patrol. He’s finally to an age where he will want to pick it out himself, rather than me picking what is cute and putting it on him. Benjamin will be the latter, and I think he’ll make a super adorable dinosaur. For one thing, he’s cute in anything; and secondly, I already own the costume because Andrew wore it just a few years ago. Anyways, back to the kids superhero capes. One of the reasons why I love these is because they’re affordably priced — right around $30 or so — and each one is handmade. Plus, unlike the cutesy costumes at stores, this cape can be worn with any clothing so he won’t overgrow it in one single year. And since every kid likes to be a superhero more than just on Halloween, you’ll no doubt get your money’s worth as he’s running around the house shouting “Up, up & away!” and trying to chase the cats and jump from couches and leap from coffee tables. Or that might just be our household.

Onto the capes!

The perfect double stroller that is both baby and toddler approved? I found it! Read more about my quest below. And subscribe for the latest!

Awesome Double Stroller for Baby and Toddler

by baby trend

Before Benjamin was born a few months ago, I considered purchasing so many things. And then quickly turned them down. With your second child, your needs strongly outweigh your wants, and you’re able to tell the difference. For my first born, everything felt like a need; the second time around, I can clearly discern between eight bibs or just two; three bottles versus an entire bottle “starter” kit; and sixteen onesies or six. Because this time, I am more picky between what KIND of bib I want to use (these and these), I knew well ahead of time I wanted to use these bottles (after trying out a ton of different kinds last time), and I know he’ll grow SO FAST that a few good onesies will do just fine. Oh, and there’s always online shopping at Carter’s or dropping by my local Kohl’s when he does outgrow the current set. For some reason, with your first born you are panicked thinking, “But what if he needs this and I DON’T HAVE IT?!” As if the stores close forever once little one arrives. Ha.

As I was saying, I considered purchasing so many things before Benjamin came around, but the one that stuck with me was a double stroller. I really, really wanted the boys to be able to go on stroller rides together. And it keeps my own sanity being able to put them both in one solid stroller. So I hunted and shopped for the best deals and I settled upon this awesome double stroller and I can’t wait to share it with you.
