These kids are CRAZY now that the weather is nice!  We’re getting out as many wiggles as we can at the parks, but when a rainy day rolls around, they are bouncing off the walls and getting into things that never interested them before.  When desperate times call for creative measures, dress-up clothes are the ticket!

Buy Costumes let us review a Superman costume, and the time it takes to get “Rocket” in and out repeatedly is so worth seeing him act like a superhero around the house.  Superhero costumes are the hot items lately, have you noticed?  Everyone’s having superhero birthday parties.  Could it be due to a few key superhero movies that came out this summer?

This is the Superman Man of Steel Deluxe Toddler /Child Costume.  This is an officially licensed Superman costume, in a toddler size 2-4.  I guessed it would fit my beefy 2-year-old just fine, but I was quite impressed with just HOW well it fit.  It has just the right amount of stretch to not be skin-tight or suffocating, but it is also not too gaping and flowy around the wrists or ankles, so it looks like a really good fit.  It also has a tie in the back for an adjustable fit around the waist.

Its just too funny seeing my toddler with defined abs and mega muscles!  I can’t get enough of these pictures.  The chest portion of this costume is not a hard and stiff plastic sheet, but rather a thick foam, which allows for plenty of uninhibited movement and superhero action.  Because of all the padding and chest shaping, I bet you could wear several layers underneath for trick-or-treating layering and the costume would more or less look the same.  The colors are so vibrant!

The only minor flaw is this speckle of white on the chest, where the ink was misprinted.  It looks like such a small error that is specific to this suit, and probably not a problem on any other of this same costume.  The elastic footies are great for keeping the faux boots in place over any type of shoes, or just socks for around the house play.IMG_4604

“Superboy!  Superboy!”, is what I hear all around the house.  Love it.  The real ticket on this costume is the cape, and my boy actually prefers to just wear the cape around the house.  Because of this, I wish that the red cape (which is removable), had a better velcro arrangement.  Currently it has two pokey sides to adhere to the fuzzy side on the inside of the suit at the neck, and I wish the cape had one pokey and one soft so that it had a better connection when worn alone.

Overall, I am impressed with the quality, and actually expected something less durable, so I was pleasantly surprised.  How fun to have a cool dress-up costume around the house to play in!  Check out all the other fun superhero costumes that BuyCostumes.com sells!  There are some fun ones for little boys!

I received one or more of the products mentioned above for free using Tomoson.com. Regardless, I only recommend products or services I use personally and believe will be good for my readers.

  1. My boys would have loved a Superman suit like that! The muscles are the best part, even if your boy thinks the cape is!
