How to pull off a cape

I need to amend what I said before about "no capes."

A few days after posting about the dangers of riding toys, I was sharing my findings with my mom. (Let's just say she doesn't really frequent my blog.)

She said the key with capes is Velcro. It makes it easier for the kid to put the cape on themselves (none of this "Moooooom, will you tie this for me?") and it's less of a strangulation hazard. If a Velcroed cape gets caught in something, it should come right off. Should. I still would think twice about letting my little superhero wear a cape when riding on anything with a motor.

But Velcro is a good thing.
