Let me tell you a story
About a boy....
A boy who has never ever enjoyed dressing up.
integral part of childhood has passed him by. We began at 18 months old
with an amazing Superman outfit that a friend bought us for him... Proud
parents that we were thought he'd look so cute... He screamed the house
down and didn't stop until I took it off.
Halloween's came and went. Sulking face at the even mere suggestion of
"Please dress up as a pumpkin for mummy?" He was having none of it.
He's now 7 (8 in June) and to me he should be embracing the imagination
and creativity that dressing up allows. I loved nothing better than
getting my mum's old high heels on or my fairy princess dresses on to
imagine that I was someone regal and beautiful. To have a child that
doesn't enjoy that is hard for me, there's nothing wrong with him not
wanting to but I feel he is missing out somewhat on the fun you can.
So the offer to review a "Captain
America" costume came our way... He loves the Avengers.
Captain America and Iron Man are his
fave's. Thinks they are kick ass Hero's. So I said "He'd be honoured to
...... The costume arrived really quickly from Rubie. It was in a really
strong plastic packet and the costume is really well made. It has
inbuilt "muscles" and comes with a hat to complete the look. Really good
quality material and velcro fasteners on the back.
The boy... who has NEVER and I repeat NEVER wanted to dress up ever...
asked "Is this mine to keep mum? It looks really cool"
So I thought we were already on to a winner here. That little girl
excitement was ignited inside me and I couldn't wait for him to try it
The costume was size 6-8. The boy is a little small for his age and the
costume fits him with room to grow. So I would say would fit a 6 to a
small sized 8 year old comfortably. I think there are other costumes in
the range too so plenty of choice for all your little superhero's.
I would happily buy more of these costumes. Just to see my son joining
in the dressing up game finally after so many years of being adamant
that dressing up is rubbish, was fantastic.
Noah had the following to say about the costume...I really love the
Captain America costume. The
muscle bit is cool and I want to wear it to school so the girl's think I
have big muscles. It's made from nice stuff that doesn't make me feel
itchy (Noah suffers from eczema) I like Captain
America so to have a costume I can wear is awesome and I want to wear it
So there you have it. One happy 7 year old boy. One VERY happy mummy
who loves the magic that dressing up can create.
Definitely an item to buy in my opinion. 10/10
