Providing opportunities for children to have creative play is so wonderful. One thing we have definitely noticed in our daughter is how wild her imagination already is. Sometimes I am baffled by what she comes up with, but I love it that she has no problem using her imagination already. Her dolls and cars are always off on some sort of adventure.
She is just beginning to get into costumes everything from princesses, and fairies, to different animals. My favourite right now is the Ladybug toddler cape from Great Pretenders. The great thing about the cape is that it can fit various sizes of children. so long as the hood, and neck strap fit, your child is good to go. I know this will be getting lots of us as my daughter grows up. She has run around lots wearing it, flapping her arms and pretending to fly. My favourite was when we took her outside to play while wearing the costume. Her imagination ran wild.
The cape is well constructed. It has a black hood with two little antennae on top, then the cape itself is a gorgeous red with giant black spots. To hold it closed is a little strap with velcro that goes under the chin, and across the front of the neck. The velcro is nice and sturdy. The part many moms love… it is machine washable! Yes! So if your child wears it outside while playing and it gets covered in mud, you can put it in the wash.
