My daughter has a favorite superhero. It’s Spider-Man. She actually loves all superheroes: The Hulk, Iron Man and Captain Marvel. She even knows who Thanos is — “He’s the bad guy,” she says. Who knew I’d have a toddler who equally loves singing and dancing as much as she loves comic book superheroes.
But it’s hard to find her favorite heroes on girls’ clothing. Most are geared toward boys. For instance, when she started potty training, I asked her what underwear she wanted. “Spider-Man,” she happily said. Did you know I could not find any Spider-Man girls underwear…anywhere? I found plenty of boy options. None for my girl.
So I bought her Captain Marvel underwear.
Companies should realize that girls don’t just like

Grace has some superhero clothing: Spider-Man and Avengers pajamas (both bought from the toddler boys’ section), and some girl hero T-shirts (Batgirl, Supergirl and Wonder Woman).
But I want more choices for her.
When I went back-to-school shopping I found a few options — in both the boys’ and girls’ sections.
I wanted to share what I bought (and where I got them), in case you’re in the same situation as me — looking for more superhero clothing options for your little girl.
I am a fan of Old Navy. Not just because of their affordable clothing options, but because I can find a variety of superhero T-shirts, pajamas and accessories. Most are labeled “for boys,” so when shopping online and
Carter’s has superhero-style clothing for babies, toddler and young kids. The boys section is a lot larger than the girls. But, let me say it again, always check out both sections to find what you want.
Carter’s has characters ranging from Batman and Black Panther to Spider-Man and Superman — and, of course, Batgirl, Wonder Woman and Supergirl.
My favorite superhero find was at Target. Yes, they really do have everything. As I mentioned, my daughter’s favorite hero is Spider-Man. Target has a 2-pack of girls’ Spider-Man T-shirts. I love the graphics, colors and that it’s geared toward girls. The store also has a variety of superhero clothing for all ages, and they even have Halloween costumes.
And last, I’ll mention Kohl’s since they do have superhero clothing options. They have a large selection for girls 7-16. I haven’t purchased anything from them yet, but it’s only a matter of time.
