April Showers Bring Batman Powers! (Review)

In my house, Super Heroes are almost as important as Mommy and Daddy. With 3 little boys, I can’t even begin to count the number of super hero themed items that we have. Our youngest, Parker, was even named after a super hero. We all love them that much.

The ultimate Super Hero in our house, though, is Batman. Everybody loves Batman, right? How could you not? He’s dark, mysterious, and he drives a super cool car.

Lucky for us, there’s a new set of Batman Rain Gear to keep my little Super Heroes dry.

Here’s some information about the new Batman Rain Gear:

Warner Bros. Consumer Products and Washington Shoe Company are unleashing the ultimate Bat-gadget this rainy season with a rain collection inspired by the favorite DC Comics Super Hero, Batman. What better way for young boys to bring their Batman powers to the streets than with a hooded rain slicker with removable cape, Batman boots, and a matching Batman umbrella to help them take flight in their adventures.

The Batman-themed collection of rainwear by Washington Shoe Company, a leading manufacturer of footwear and fashion raingear, is geared towards kids and juniors and will retail at $36.95 for the boots, $16 for the umbrella, and $50 for the raincoat. Boot sizes range from child’s size 5 – 13 and youth sizes 1 – 4. Raincoats are available from size 2T to 6X. The line features a removable cape which can be worn with or without the raincoat and glow in the dark logos, keeping your little Super Heroes safe even on the rainiest days.

My Review of the Batman Rain Gear
Thanks to Team Mom and Warner Bros., I had the opportunity to test out the new on one of my own little Super Heroes.The hardest part was deciding which of my little guys would be the lucky guinea pig, since they all love Batman so much.

After talking about it with the 2 oldest boys, we decided that Jace would be the test monkey for this review. Since the raincoat only went up to a size 6X, and Zander’s in a 7/8, we figured it would fit Jace best.

The package arrived super quickly, and I couldn’t wait to open it. (I think I was even more excited than the boys!) Inside the box was another box – bright blue with a huge Batman sticker on top. I happened to be on the phone with hubby when I opened it, and he is still harassing me about using the term “wicked cool” to describe what I found inside.

I got off the phone with hubby and called the boys into my room. You could hear their excitement from a mile away. Everything was packaged beautifully, but we couldn’t wait to get it out and try it on. I was worried that Zander would get jealous, but he was way too busy being excited for Jace.

Of course, the day the package arrived, it was bright and sunny out. That hasn’t happened here in weeks! We get so much rain down here that our area is actually classified as a rainforest! But, it didn’t stop Jace from putting on the Batman Rain Gear and heading outside so I could snap some pictures.

There are several things that I really love about the products:

  • They are unique. Of all the Batman “stuff” we own, these are definitely the most fun to look at.
  • They are high quality. Very high quality, and very durable. The raincoat is a durable material and is lined on the inside to make sure my little super hero stays warm in a cold rain. Plus, I’ll be able to pass it down to the next little monkey in line.
  • The sizes actually run a little big. And as a mom of 5, this is fabulous. Now I don’t have to worry about Jace growing out of it in the next month. Zander was actually able to get the coat and the boots on, and they fit him well too – another bonus that this is something they can share.
  • They are just plain awesome. Really. I love everything about the set. From the bat signal on the umbrella, to the super-cool removable cape on the jacket, to the way cool Batman shapes on the rain boots. All in all, this a fabulous set.

I am super pleased with the entire set, but I do wish they made the raincoat a little bit bigger. I would love to be able to buy one for Zander, but since the 6X fits him perfectly now, that means it won’t for long. I’d love to see them make it up to at least a size 7/8.

I do have to throw in that even my little Lucy loved the set. When the boys were playing dress-up that first night, Lucy came crying to me: “Mommy, I need a Batman rain coat.” So, my other suggestion to Warner Bros.: Make a pink Batman coat for little girls. Just watch how well it sells! (And let me know if you do, because I need to get one!)

The Batman Rain Gear definitely gets our 5 Vinez Monkeys seal of approval. It’s a huge hit around here, and we all just love it!
