Batkid’s story began in November 2013 when he took social media by storm and stole the heart of the world. Then-five-year-old Miles Scott had been battling leukemia for most of his life, and the Make-a-Wish Foundation and all of San Francisco rallied around him. This week, the behind the scenes documentary, Batkid Begins: The Wish Heard Around the World, debuts on the big screen.
This week’s Home Geekonomics features fun Batman-related items for kids. Inside of us, we all have a little bit of Batkid’s dreams of becoming The Caped Crusader.

This is a brilliant idea for a mirror, and not just for kids. Imagine checking yourself right before heading to work, adjusting your face in the mirror and saying, “I’m Batman.” There’s no more empowering way to start the day.
Batman Stroller by Custom Fan Builds
When Baby Face is on the loose, the only way to chase him down is in a custom, tricked-out Batman Tumblr stroller. This stroller looks pretty close to the real thing but is a lot more comfortable. Hardcore Bat-babies will surely be the envy of all the other superheroes on the block
