Every Child is a Superhero: Spotlight and Giveaway from Pip and Bean



Don’t we all have great memories of jumping off couches or swing sets with our superhero powers? Maybe we improvised with a blanket tied around our neck while we captured the bad guys and saved the world.

Maybe you relate superheroes with the kids you work with at school, daycare or the hospital. The ones battling real life challenges of stress, illness and loss.

Play is powerful for kids and enhancing with props or an “imagination’s sidekick” makes it that much more magical.

I would like to introduce Pip and Bean that help to create that magic.

pipandbeanlogoPip and Bean is a family owned business run by Alyssa and Brian Wolfe. Alyssa is the creative force behind their product line of personalized superhero capes and Brian is the number cruncher. We began making capes in 2009 after a birthday present to a friend turned into half a dozen orders and then an Etsy shop. Imagination and creativity are at the core of every Pip and Bean product but we don’t just create costumes, we make superheroes.
