If have young children, I am sure you have heard of the PJ Mask by now. For those who don’t here is the short info about it.
PJ Mask is the new craze among toddlers and young kids. It is an animation story broadcasted on the Disney channel since 2014 but not made by them. PJ Mask is originally a series of stories written by the French author Romuald Racioppo. The first story was published in 2008 in French and the colorful picture book became soon very popular. I think there are 15 stories, so far.
There are three main characters of the story; Catboy, Owlette and Gekko. Each character has its own main color. Catboy is blue, Owlette is red and magenta/pink and Gekko – guess what – it’s green. The three characters are three ordinary children – who are friends – with no superpowers what so ever, or at least not during the day. They get their magical power only when they put their pajamas on in the evening and they turn into their respective character: Catboy, Owlette and Gekko.
The PJ Mask stories are really popular amongst pre-schoolers and I applaud the writer for his ingenuousness for having the little ones turning into a special character only when they put their PJs on. I am sure he made a lot of mum’s “preparing for bedtime life” much easier.
Anyway, around Halloween I started to be asked to make red and bird pink wing capes for little girls to dress up as Owlette. Since Owlette does not really have bird wings but a cape, I thought I better make one.
