Batman Plays Basketball! Oriental Trading for Halloween!

Disclosure: This is a sponsored post, but all opinions stated are genuine and my Oriental Trading own. This is a company I have loved for years, long before I started to blog. :)


Halloween Headquarters at Oriental Trading is open for business, and in our house, they've helped create a super hero!!

Our little 'Batman' likes to play basketball, and he's definitely committed to the cause. Look at his face...he's serious. This game is one that touches his heart, evokes determination and encourages him to set goals that he works on daily. He likes basketball more than any other thing I've ever seen him take part in, and he's a natural at it too.


Batman is gritty. Look at that face. He is not a superhero to be messed with...he knows a few trick shots, and some fancy dribbles too, and he's not afraid to use them.


Watching him makes me laugh, makes me worry (sometimes), and makes me proud (always). This kid Batman has really got it together, on and off the court, and I couldn't be more proud of the tween he has become.


Of course, those little moments where his 'little boy' still shows (oh please let that ball be all net!), also make me smile. I couldn't be happier that there is a gradual release when it comes to our kiddos growing up. It's already happening way too fast in our house, so I definitely appreciate the moments like the one above...where you can tell he's really hoping that ball goes squarely into the net (and the innocence on his face squarely gives it away). ;)


And then of course, there are these moments when he busts out with that sweet, super happy smile he's had since he was little. This is the one I hope he keeps for life. :)



When my little Batman is starting to get tired out from practice, he sits down to rest with a bottle of water to refresh (and then begs to play again). Not one to let him overdue it, I almost almost say no. This day, however, I had him take off the Boys Armored Deluxe Muscle Chest Costume he selected from Oriental Trading (don't want it sweaty for Halloween) and we played a game of H.O.R.S.E. I lost, but these days, that's nothing new. I expected it. :)


You can also get great Halloween accessories at Oriental Trading, like these great Batman Gauntlets. The traditional costume comes with some attached to the sleeves, but he likes these with the fingers even more and wore them on top of it (over the ones built onto the costume). I have to admit they're pretty sharp.


The belt and mask on the left come with the muscle chest costume, as does a detachable cape. The Guantlets, Batarangs (2) and Safety Light (batteries included) are extras you can purchase (just a few of many, many options available at Oriental Trading to accessorize for Halloween).


Here is the costume with the mask on. The mask as I noted above, does come with it and you can see the chest is a padded muscle type of costume ('cuz being 'ripped' is a requirement if you are indeed Batman). This is just one of a good number of Batman costumes available on the website, so if  you wanted a different type or style, please, head on over to browse the site. They have costumes for children and adults!


My son has loved playing 'dress-up' since he was a very young boy. Though he doesn't do so much anymore (he only does it these days when one of the littles in the family come over to visit) but Halloween offers him the perfect excuse to don a favorite costume, and what a costume this one is, I do have to say! The quality is nice, not at all flimsy like so many that you come across in the retail stores, and the look is smashing!

This cinema-quality Batman costume looks like it's straight out of Batman v. Superman: Dawn of Justice™! It's got all the impressive features your Gotham City guy will need to save the day. The exquisite detailing and fabulous accessories are ideal for Halloween parties, comic book events and playtime.
Includes:
• Padded jumpsuit with 3D gauntlets
• 3D boot tops
• Mask
• Cape
• Belt

  3. That's the most handsome Batman I have ever seen! He's growing up so fast, but it's nice to see that he still has fun in his superhero costumes from time to time. We also love to shop Oriental Trading for all of our Halloween needs. They are the leader when it comes to fun for the holidays.

  9. Ha ha, don't you love it when they do random things in costume? I still think of the time my twins went to the grocery store in full TMNT costumes, and my oldest (embarrassed) tried to tell them it was illegal!
