Ittybittyladybug asked if we'd like to review some Baby Leo capes, and our little supergirls were totally up for the challenge. So they sent us over two complimentary bright pink, satin samples, I grabbed the camera, and we unleashed our cape-clad duo at a local park. I think Ro and Ree in capes were even more fearless than usual (and that's saying a lot). Here's what we thought of the products:
Super cute and quite comfy!:
Nice form in the air (heh):
Strong, soft neck straps kept the capes in place through anything the twinados could dish out:
And the flying—holy smokes—when the girls put on those capes the flying feats were incredible to watch!:
That was fun!!! The girls were superinspired by their superhero attire. And my inner photofreak was grinning like mad the whole time (and rolling in the mud—to get these shots I was lying on my back on the ground near a low wall while they jumped over me).
We fueled up after all that flying with a (cough cough) healthy little snack. Even superheroes eat McDonald's, don't ya know?:
The Bottom Line:
We all loved the capes, and so did the bystanders in the park. The girls liked that they were bright and soft (lined with chamois), cute, and fun. And I was impressed that they're really well-made by hand in San Francisco (woohoo!), are prewashed so they won't shrink or fade, and can be thrown in the washer/dryer with all the rest of your clothes (our superheroes are extra rough and these capes will see a lot of laundry time).
The Special Offer:
These capes come in a fun variety of colors and styles (see all the capes here) and would make great Christmas presents for boys or girls. If you order within the next month, you can get 15% off your entire order (anything in the Ittybittyladybug store) by typing in the code SALSA15. Cool! Since the capes are handmade to order, they take 2 weeks to ship, so any Christmas orders need to be placed by early December. Each cape is available in two sizes, the larger "superhero" size (which Ro and Ree are wearing in the pics) and the smaller "sidekick" size.
