Super heroes have been part of my life since I can remember. My hubby and I both grew up with comic books like Marvel and now our son is a fan too. The characters that we remember reading growing up have been brought to the big-screen in various Hollywood movies - which we are fans of in this house. 

The most recent movie will be The AVENGERS which hits theaters on May 3rd (in Imax 3D too!)! The Avengers is a super hero team up of a lifetime, featuring iconic Marvel Super Heroes Iron Man, The Incredible Hulk, Thor, Captain America, Hawkeye and Black Widow. With an unexpected enemy threat to global safety, Nick Fury, director of S.H.I.E.L.D., finds himself in need of a team to save the world from destruction - thus The Avengers are born! I for one cannot wait to see this movie! 





In celebration of the movie release, Marvel has teamed up with Hasbro to bring us some amazing toys for those super hero fans like us out there! We were very excited when the package arrived at our house and the kids couldn't wait to dig in and dress up as their favorite comic book characters!


Hasbro had us impressed from the beginning with a box themed for The Avengers. It looks like a secret mission case complete with an awesome picture of The Avengers and compartments inside containing all the cool toys! 




The box is also great for storing everything in, for the kids next adventure as The Avengers! In our "secret mission" box we received: 


Gamma Green Smash Fists: Be like the Hulk with these big green fists. Imagine having the strength of the most powerful of the AVENGERS right in your hands! Made with foam and for ages 3+ 
  

Tri-Power Repulsor: Blast like Iron Man! The Tri-Power Repulsor has a motion activated light, just like Iron Man's latest Mark VII armor as seen in The Avengers movie! It attaches to the arm with adjustable Velcro straps and the hand fits in to control the motion light. When the motion light is lifted upward it illuminates and makes Iron Man sound effects! It also has four missiles that launch with the press of a button (they are removable if you are concerned about small parts too). This toy takes 3 AAA batteries (not included), ages 4+.



Iron Man Hero Mask: The Iron Man Hero Mask finishes off the super hero look! Made of hard plastic, it fits kids as young as four years old with an adjustable Velcro strap at the back. Masks also come in The Hulk, Thor and Captain America. There are two versions of the Iron Man Hero Mask, this version does not light up or make sounds while the other model does. 





Marvel, The Avengers Ultimate Heroes 10" figures: Gamma Strike Hulk is strong! Squeeze his legs together and his arms move in a smashing motion making roaring sounds! Ages 4+ and takes 2 AAA batteries (included)



Earths Mightiest Heroes 3.5" Figures: We received all four characters - Iron Man, Thor, Captain America and The Hulk. These figures are well detailed and come with accessories for each character, made for kids to reenact their favorite movie parts or maybe for those who like to collect comic book memorabilia. These are geared for ages 4+.

We always encourage imaginative play such as playing make-believe and toys like these are excellent just for that, allowing the kids to dress up and pretend to be their favorite super heroes. Needless to say our little guy has been hanging onto that Iron Man mask and Iron Man Tri-Power Repulsor since we opened the box!

  2. Your hubby and mine would get along - mine wanted to keep the box. I made a deal it's to store the Avengers toys in so it'll be out of reach for little guy to destroy (if he was an Avenger his name would be "The Destructor") Its been a few days we've had them and this morning D was dressed as Iron Man as soon as he woke up LOL loves them!
