Looking for super hero dress up gear for girls? This SuperME backpack is perfect for a little girl who wants to be a super hero on the go. Thanks to SuperMe for sending one my way to test out.
A few weeks back, Kayla was invited to a birthday party that came with optional instructions to dress like a superhero. Which is awesome if you’re a little boy. It’s also quite limiting if you’re a girl. Probably because the only female super hero I can name is Wonder Woman? Which is why I was very happy to find the SuperMe line.
As you can tell, SuperME offers super hero gear that’s appropriate for those who just happen to favor pink and purple over blue and red. It’s also functional. Because that cape is actually a backpack. Which I filled up with lots of fun things last week to send Kayla off to her grandparents’ house so Craig and I could have our first (and almost certainly last) weekend alone in our home since Kayla’s arrival on this planet.
I added a very neat version of Go Fish that teaches exotic colors (think chartreuse and apricot) a new drawing tablet and some glittery crayons. Then I tossed in an awesome wooden camera from a little company called Twig and an Angel Dear Lovie that was really supposed to be for the baby, but when Kayla saw it and begged for it I waved my white flag.
So I know what you’re thinking – awesome, it has a cape. But can they take it to school? Haven’t you seen The Incredibles? Don’t you know that capes can get in the way? Which is why I think it’s pretty neat that the SuperME backpack has a secret pocket to tuck the cape into, which is entirely separate from the backpack storage area.
There is even a special pocket for that very essential super hero mask. The mask, might I mention is made from comfy material with no itchy or scratchy parts. I was impressed that we could even fit a large hardcover book inside of the backpack. Over the years I’ve found that so many backpacks aimed at children of this age are adorable, but useless when it comes to fitting the things your child actually wants to bring along.
Armed with some fun toys to bring along, her SuperME getup and the knowledge that she was certain to be spoiled with both attention and copious amounts of ice cream Kayla eagerly awaited the arrival of the grandpa-mobile for super girl pickup. And did some laps around the yard of course…
