Good quality and a smart extra bonus
on April 26, 2015
My 5 year old son has been wanting a Batman cape and trying to find them around at the local stores has proved to be very difficult. Amazon Prime is here to save the day! The only problem is that there are so many options and manufacturers that picking the one that will be the best can be challenging. I wanted something that would withstand the playful wrath of a 5 year old and look cool too. When looking at the choices here on Amazon, I decided to take a gamble with this one. It cost a little bit more but I liked the fact that you could reverse it and you get a Superman cape on the other side. Children tend to change their minds quite often and while today it might be Batman...tomorrow he might want to be Superman.
I was a little nervous when the package arrived because I thought that it might just be a cheap rag with a Batman/Superman sticker attached to it. I was happy to find that it was of pretty decent quality. The Batman/Superman logos are real patches. It's made out of some very shiny polyester and all of the stitching is done nicely. Basically, it is two sheets of polyester fabric (one red and the other black) sewn together. You attach it around your neck through the use of a velcro strap. The care instructions state that this is to be washed in cold water, hand wash cycle, and to let it dry flat. My son is 42 inches tall and I was worried that it would be too long for him. I didn't want it dragging on the ground and him to be tripping all over it. It falls down to about the top of his calves.
The real test was to see if he would like it. When you pull it out of the package, it looks like it is just a Batman cape. He was surprised to find out that the reversed side was also Superman. Now, he constantly changes back and forth between the two. I'm glad I went with this one and was satisfied with the quality and fit for my son. He sure is having fun with it as well.
