Celebrating Britain’s Superpowers

This is a collaborative post.

In homes up and down the country there are families with hidden talents. You might even call them superpowers. When npower researched our everyday superpowers, dad dancing and lip-syncing were ranked highly among the things that make Britain great.

But there are other things too. Mums growing vegetables, dads baking cakes. Cats keeping the children entertained and dogs cleaning the floor after every meal. In fact there are so many hidden talents out there that npower wanted to celebrate them. They even roped in Peter Andre to help.

What’s your superpower?

So what’s your family’s superpower? If you share it, you’ll have the chance to win a gadget bundle valued at £25,000 to super-power your home. You can share your superpowers online at

Better still if you’re near Central Birmingham next weekend (Friday 28th to Sunday 30th Oct) you can head to the superpower roadshow. The roadshow is a chance for you to show npower your family superpowers in person! However you decide to enter, you’ll be in with a chance of winning some amazing prizes.

Our family superpower

So, I know what you’re thinking. If every family has super powers, then what are ours? Well we’ve put together a video of our super powers. I like to think we’re quite a talented family. Between us we sing, dance, act, do rhythmic gym and play the accordion, piano and violin among other instruments. We do sports too including swimming, running, cycling, triathlon, trampolining and water polo.But when I sat back and thought of it, I realised we had one family member with quite a special and unusual talent. We have the real life littlest hobo in our midst. Check out our video to find out all about it.

Please note, this is a collaborative post but all views, opinions and superpowers are my own.

I give people static shocks and somethings my hair stands on end like Einstein.

    My superpower was shared by my late Father, my son also has it, as does my grandson.It’s called Autism/Aspergers. I’m 61 and only recently been diagnosed. I have a flair for languages because of it, and I am very creative. I also can problem solve. All of us share creativity. We all stick at a problem and work through it even if it takes us days. Many might not realise that autism is a superpower because there are downsides to it, but I think it’s a superpower and I’m glad we all have it.

    I got in touch with my super powers eight years ago after the loss of my husband of twentynine years to cancer. I have successfully guided four bereft children to adulthood, and now, I have three beautiful grand daughters who help fill the void in my life.

    Supercare and consideration for others. Don’t know how I would have managed a daily 60 mile round trip to visit my OH in hospital if one of my sons hadn’t changed his work commitments to come 200 miles back home to be with me while OH had a serious operation.

    Our shih tzu has super powers. She knows TV theme tunes especially ones that have animals in them. As soon as the programme starts she flies to the TV and sits there watching until she is sure there are no more animals. She especially loves monkeys and polar bears.

    My superpower is problemsolving. I don’t claim to be a one of a kind with this superpower – I think that it is inbuilt into all females but only manifests itself once the female has a child then it really becomes apparent and usually very necessary.
