This is the first year that all three of my kids will be in school. My youngest is in Pre School and while they are required to bring a back pack to school it isn’t something that is filled up every day or needed to carry books and lunches in. Keeping that in mind I knew we wouldn’t need a full sized backpack.
When we received our SuperMe cape backpack in the mail the very first thing I noticed was how light weight the backpack is. SuperMe cape backpacks are made with a material called EVA. What is EVA? EVA stands for ethylene vinyl acetate aka an expandable rubber. One of the great features to EVA, especially where kids are concerned, it that it’s water resistant so if your child spills on it you don’t need to fret. Just spot wash or throw in the washing machine and line dry and it will be as good as new.
With each backpack a starter patch and a mask are included. If you choose you can also get individual patches and masks. The entire back of the patch is velcro and attaches nicely to the front of the backpack. If you do end up getting more the one patch there is an extra spot on the back to store your extra patch. They currently offer fifteen patches and five masks in their store. With such a wide variety it’s easy to mix and match patches along with masks for your child’s ultimate super hero identity.
I chose the Ninja backpack for my son since he is a huge fan of all things Ninja, and to say he was excited when he saw it would be an understatement. And of course the best part for him is the cape and mask. To be able to have his backpack be something that is fun as well as functional is a huge thing for me because not only does it help with his imagination but in a way it says that school is fun too.
The SuperMe cape backpacks retail for $45.00. Now my initial reaction was that’s a little pricey but then I remembered that most backpacks, quality backpacks go for around the same price. But the thing that makes this backpack stand out amongst the others is the story behind it and the what it can do for a childs imagination.
If you’re interested in keeping up to date on SuperMe you can follow them on their Facebook page or their Twitter account.
