April Showers Bring Batman Powers!!

I knew that my son Caleb would be beyond thrilled when he found out Batman was coming to him in the mail! My son is really into super heroes right now, and Batman, a favored DC Comics Super Hero, is at the top of the list. Caleb loves dressing up, too. My kids are constantly, well almost daily, dressing up to "be something" for the day. When the UPS guy arrived at the door, Caleb said, "Hey, maybe it's my new Batman raincoat! With sheer anticipation, we opened the big blue box with the Batman logo on the front, and this is what we found inside:

The Raincoat was tied in a big, yellow ribbon, the boots were laying nice on the other side, and the umbrella was at the bottom. I thought the presentation was wonderful! Of coarse, Caleb just wanted me to take it out quickly, so he could put them on!
He was so excited that he wore the raincoat and boots all day (inside...even though it wasn't raining out).
Here is a picture of Caleb being "Batman" and posing with his "Batman" wing. The raincoat has a cape that is secured by Velcro near the back of the neck. With the cape on, kids can fit their hands in a loop, and hold out their hands with the look of bat wings. I think it is designed perfectly for kids! It is great that the cape can be worn with or without the raincoat, and the logos glow in the dark for safety and kid-appeal. We love the cape!
Raincoats are available from size 2T to 6X and retail for $50.
Caleb can't wait for it to rain out so he can go out and play in the rain with his new Batman-themed boots from Washington Shoe Company and Warner Bros.. He did wear his new boots to his Dentist appointment. He wanted to show them all his new boots, and of coarse they all thought his boots were awesome.
The Batman boots retail for $36.95, and range in sizes from child's size 5-13 and youth sizes 1-4.
The matching Batman-themed umbrella is a fun accessory to the rain gear collection. The umbrella retails for $16. Caleb loves to twirl his umbrella behind his shoulder. He is really excited to stand out in the rain hiding under the shelter of his Batman umbrella, too.

We think that the new Batman Rain Gear ROCKS~ and we are happy to give a big shout out for this rain collection! You could probably guess it, but Caleb is anxiously waiting for the rain to come! However, the boots are worn rain or shine!

This collection is available at Nordstrom’s nationwide as well as select specialty stores.

Very cool! Christian would love this as well. He got a new frog raincoat and matching boots...but he's not exactly thrilled with them. Guess he doesn't like frogs as much as his grandma does.
