Little Heroes Foundation

Sometimes superheroes reside in the hearts of small children fighting big battles

In the process of creating Kids Capers Kelly saw the joy her capes could bring.


Kelly felt inspired to offer the gift of a cape to a child that may have a disability, illness, suffered a loss or trauma or a child who just needs to feel amazing – FOR FREE! so the "Little Heroes Foundation" was born.


Little Heroes gives us the opportunity to empower extraordinary children, to give strength, courage, love and support.  We hope our capes give these deserving kids an extra boost and make them feel like the superheroes they truly are!


Our Little Hero capes are 100% handmade and come in a range of vibrant silky satin colours, with a soft patterned themed flannelette lining. The lining gives a soft, cosy, yet light weight feel.
