Active Play with Playmation Marvel’s Avengers


Playmation Marvel's Avengers

Disney’s hottest superheroes have hit shelves everywhere with PLAYMATION MARVEL’S AVENGERS. The Marvel’s Avengers movies have been a big success, and the beloved superheroes have found their way into the hearts and homes of families all over. I can’t think of a child who hasn’t at least once looked up to a superhero they’ve read about, or seen on the big screen. Now they can get down with a little rough and tumble action with the Playmation Marvel’s Avengers Starter Pack.

Now, my kiddos and I have all seen commercials for Playmation, but we really didn’t grasp the power of play that was involved until we watched a couple of videos, and tested out the gear for ourselves. This is high tech equipment here, which does require 12 batteries (not included), but makes for a lot of fun.

The many batteries are used to power up wireless technology, motion sensors and more.  You can even invite friends over, who have their own gear, and power up to tackle missions and combat arenas together, or face off in competitive play. I can see some very fun play dates in the future.

The starter pack comes with four locations and 25 missions. You can purchase different characters (good or evil), to help with the missions. The Repulsor Gear is strapped onto the arm, and can be used to shoot, via laser, at the villains on the home base. Don’t be fooled into thinking you will just stand there and shoot, because during the mission, the Repulsor Gear spouts off different commands such as jump, roll, turn, etc. This is the perfect toy/game for the active child.
