These days you can find my 4-year-old Monkey running through the house fighting “bad guys.” Poor Angus, the Potcake Dog, is often the obligatory bad guy, and the little Peanut is roped into being Robin (regardless of whatever superhero the Monkey decides to be.) I know my little boys aren’t alone in their love of being a superhero. What kiddos don’t want to be superheroes? Catching the bad guy, scaling buildings, rescuing the damsel in distress…come on these are the things dreams are made of for kids. With Halloween being less than a month away, I’ve found that Amazon is wonderful source for amazing superhero inspiration. So many costumes that are perfect for trick-or-treating and better yet, perfect for dress up for months later! So without further ado, here are the best kids’ superhero costumes that I’ve discovered for my little boys, as well as your little girls!
Girls’ Superhero Costumes
Bat Girl: Now the Monkey would refer to Bat Girl as “Robin.” In his mind, once he is Batman, no one else can have an equally powerful role.
Robin: This would be awesome for a little sister of Batman or Batgirl, or what about having twins wear Batgirl and Robin? Such fun!
Spiderman: Okay, this is my favorite, probably because the Monkey loves Spiderman a lot these days, but isn’t this the cutest outfit?
Supergirl: The Mellow Man watches this show on television sometimes, but nothing is better than a cape, and shimmery boots. They definitely help with X-ray vision and flying.
Captain American: Maybe I was wrong about my favorite choice because this little model is cute as a button, and ready to save the world!
Fun Girly Superhero Capes: Like the Green Lantern Set, these are nice solid dress-up capes that will yield plenty of high quality pretend play, even if they aren’t worn on halloween!
Boys’ Superhero Costumes
Batman: Of course you can wear the traditional batman outfit.
Robin: And just like my Little Peanut, the little brother can be the trusty sidekick, Robin.
Spiderman: Here’s the Monkey’s favorite superhero of the week. I can’t wait to show him this costume.
Superman: There are also a lot of Superman costumes with “muscles,” but I prefer this more traditional one.
Captain America: Another favorite Superhero around our house.
Green Lantern: I like this costume, but I’m wondering how you get a younger child to keep that mask on? Any thoughts?
Wolverine: My little boys don’t know about him yet, but I bet some slightly older boys do, and those claws are so cool!
Boys’ Superhero Capes: Honestly, I think these have the most imaginative potential, and are my favorite choice. I’ve ordered one for my fierce little Monkey of a superhero. You get ALL 5 Capes!!!!
Don’t be caught at the last minute, get on the ball and deck out your superhero now, before the costumes are all gone. Go save the day supermom!
