For Su­per­hero Jr.

Los Angeles Times - - TRAVEL - — Judi Dash

Why should your lit­tle trav­eler wear a back­pack de­signed for mere mor­tals when he or she can don one that re­veals the su­per­hero within? When you un­zip the hid­den pocket at the top of the spongy ny­lon pack of the Su­perME Cape Back­pack, out flows an at­tached satiny cape. Another pocket holds a match­ing mask. Among 10 color schemes and themes are a black, gray and yel­low Ninja Graf­fiti Cape Back­pack, a pink and black/white striped Ze­bra Cape Back­pack and a green and brown cam­ou­flage mo­tif Sa­fari Cape Back­pack. It’s all in the name of fun and make-be­lieve, meant to make kids feel a lit­tle more pow­er­ful. (There’s an an­tibul­ly­ing sub­text that ju­nior may or may not per­ceive.) This back­pack also is well-equipped for travel, with a zip­pered main com­part­ment, ad­justable padded back straps, a mesh side pocket for a wa­ter bot­tle and a big fold-over flap at the back with dual plas­tic snap­buckle-clo­sure straps for se­cur­ing cargo. For chil­dren ages 2 to 6. Su­perME Cape Back­pack costs $39.90. Info: www.su­per­me­hero .com
