Are your tweens Marvel fanatics? Ours are!
Whether boys or girls, the Marvel movies are loved by many a tween (and parent). Our older tween girls (Maddy, Sophia and Olivia) went to see the the new Captain America The Winter Soldier with the dads and thoroughly enjoyed it. But, they did advise that the movie is not for the younger tween audience and perhaps they should of been a bit older. The movie is rated PG-13 and they are only 12.
Next up is The Amazing Spider-Man 2 which hits theaters on May 2nd.
If they’ve seen the movie or not, my children are all fans of the characters. And, I’m a fan of any toy that gets them away from the screen and playing together. We received the new The Amazing Spider-Man 2 Spider Strike Action Figure and The Amazing Spider-Man 2 Spider Vision Electronic Mask to review. And to illustrate my son’s excitement for these toys, here’s what went down when her heard they were in the house:
Me (in the kitchen starting dinner): Jonathan, there’s a box by the door that came earlier. It has the Spiderman toys.
Jonathan: WHAAAATT!!?! Why didn’t you tell me earlier.
Me: You had to finish your homework…
(I am now speaking to myself because he had already left the room.)
Jonathan (yelling from the living room): I need scissors.
Me: One minute.
I finish rinsing the broccoli, grab the scissors and head into the living room. He races past me with the mask on and figurine in hand leaving behind him a whirlwind of packaging, plastic and paper. So, I can’t really tell you what the packaging of the toys looks like and have to rely on the photos I’ve seen online!
As you will see in the video, he and his sister have been playing with the toy for days now and are really enjoying them, especially at night. I truly believe in providing children with toys that encourage them to play, image in and have fun with their siblings. And at a price point of $9.99 for the figurine and $19.99 for the mask, these are affordable toys that are a great investment.
Here are two videos they created to share more about the toys. As you can see from the trailer they had me create, they really had a lot of fun.
