Look! Up in the sky! It's a bird! It's a plane! It's a superhero-themed kit with three hands-on, super-charged activities! Customize your Mighty Mask and Power Cuffs as you transform into a superhero of your own imagination and creation; build a pint-sized, Poseable Caped Crusader to help you save the day; and zip through the air as you practice "flying" with the Super Swooper balloon zip-line.

Note: This kit includes a small sampling of activities from our Superhero Training Academy virtual camp. If your child is registered for that camp, we suggest waiting for a later kit.
