Superhero Capes for Kids - Whoosh!

Updated on December 9, 2013

Superhero Capes for Kids Halloween Costumes and Role play

A collection of superhero capes for kids. Capes for little kids and bigger kids in a variety of fabrics - options for boys and girls. Quality capes that will last and cheap superhero capes for occasional use at Halloween or a fancy dress party.

Add an extra layer to your Halloween costume for a little extra warmth and a cool effect. Or choose a cape for year round role play adventures. Batman, Superman, Spiderman, Green Lantern, Thor, Captain America, a cape adds something to all little superheroes.

I love to see a little boy or girl swooshing around with their cape, very cute! And a cape works to great effect on an older child's costume too.

Don't miss the Custom Superhero Capes with your child's initial.

Superman Flying Right by Superman

Capes are strongly associated with superheroes. Batman wore a cape and so did Superman and Supergirl. And the currently popular Thor was also a cape-wearer. The image to the left of superman flying with his cape trailing behind is iconic and lots of kids want to practice the pose and reproduce it.

On a cold October evening it's reasonable for any small superhero to wear a cape to keep a little warmer and to charm their audience. Capes are wonderful for role play too. Kids love to run around in a cape and pretend to fly.

Little Adventures Superhero Capes - For Boys and Girls Age 3-8

Little Adventures Superhero capes are fully lined velvet capes. Great for adding an extra layer to a Halloween costume for warmth and detail, and great quality for the dressing up box. These capes are washable too. Each cape measures 24" from neckline to hem and fits most children from age 3 to 8.

The American Hero style of this cape with a cross would work well over a Captain America costume.

These reversible superhero capes are something special. They are homemade with care and attention to detail. They are made from a durable cotton poly-blend material with felt logos - Bat on one side and an S on the other.

These capes are 30" long so they will work for taller children than some of the other capes (many are 24" long). The recommended age range is up to 10 years. This cape is a really nice item that kids will get lots of use from and is sure to impress. The reversible feature makes it great value for money.
