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!)
I was lucky enough to be able to try this company out and see what is was all about by getting a cape for Diva-PJ! For those of you who do not know PJ, she loves the color purple so finding a cape that was at least close to this and incorporating purple throughout was definitely going to be important. Going through the product catalog, I was amazed to find such a wide variety of items to choose from. From capes to super hero masks, this company has everything that you will need to transform into a superhero.
I designed my own superhero cape. What I loved about this process was that it was so simple to use and the system was quite intuitive. You were able to select the color you wanted for the cape and then you could add sewn on items to make the cape unique. On these sewn on items you could add a splash of color, a initial or even some sparkles, whatever would make the cape unique and special for the person receiving the cape.
I did call into the company to get a few things worked out and I was amazed to hear their customer service workers as they made the call fun by asking “How Can I Make your Day Super Today” or something like this, so they really got into the call and had fun with it, which was a breath of fresh air when it came to customer service.
When we received the cape, it was of great quality and my daughter loved it. Now we cannot get her to take it off much of the time, so for us we have a new Superhero on our hands, Super PJ… So as you get ready for National Superhero Day on April 28, how about you? What type of cape would you design for yourself or someone that you love?
I highly encourage you all to check out PowerCapes for a unique gift that your whole family will love!
