About TinySuperheroes

Tiny Superheroes mission is to empower all TinySuperheroes everywhere one cape at a time. Robyn Rosenberger is the founder of TinySuperheroes. In August 2012, her nephew was celebrating his 2nd birthday and so she made him a superhero cape. She then went on to make more capes for other kids (and dogs) in her life.

During that time, Robin had been following a blog about a sweet girl named Brenna who was born with a very rare and severe skin disorder called Harlequin Ichthyhosis. She was born just 2 months after her son, and so Robin became invested in her journey, reading her blog daily. One day, Robin decided to contact Brenna’s family to send her and her brother capes in January 2013. At that moment, TinySuperheroes was born.

A small hobby of making capes turned into a movement in just months. In its first year, with the help of supporters all over the world, Tiny Superheroes was able to send over 4,000 capes to extraordinary kids in all 50 states and 16 countries. Children with cancer, congenital heart defects, Epilepsy, undiagnosed syndromes, rare diseases, Autism, and all sorts of other TinySuperhero powers have revealed their true identities through their capes.
