Playmation takes Play to the Next Level! #playmation

Thanks Disney for sending me this Playmation Starter Set to try!

When I went to the D23 Expo, I had the opportunity to see the new Playmation in action. I loved it although I am not a gamer. But the Playmation captured my imagination and I even emailed hubby that we needed to get this for Christmas.

The Playmation Marvel's Avengers game is pretty amazing and it is available now. The Marvel's Avengers Starter Pack includes five connected toys: one piece of Avenger Gear (Repulsor), two Power Activators and two Smart Figures – a Super Hero (Captain America) and a Super Villain (Iron Skull). The Repulsor is inspired by Iron Man and fits both kids and adults. It is adjustable so it will fit kids and adults. It fit my arm and hubby's just right. The voice you hear giving you prompts is JARVIS as he takes you through the tutorial on how to control your new Gear, inspired by Iron Man technology.

Truth be told, I just started it up and started playing. I am willy-nilly that way. But it was pretty easy to follow Jarvis' prompts. It was a lot of fun shooting Iron Skull. And in sparring mode, I was able to beat Captain America. I love that when you beat a villain, he pops off the base. I let hubby try it and he loved it as well. Our living room is a little too small for play so we have to find another space. And our cat, Joss, wanted in on the action as well. He was mesmerized by the Iron Skull and his base.

The Starter pack comes with 25 missions to enjoy. If you want more , you can head over to the AvengersNet app where you can register your Avenger Gear and see your progress, explore additional locations and characters, and get access to new missions. New recruits to the Avengers can fight Marvel Super Villains including Ultron, Iron Skull, Loki, or join fellow Avengers Super Heroes like Black Widow, Falcon and more as they battle to save the Earth by running, jumping, ducking and dodging – whatever each challenge requires.

You can buy other pieces like the Marvel Gamma Gear Starter Pack in November. It comes with Hulk Hands! It also comes with a Loki figure. I love me some Hulk and Loki! If we get the Gamma Ger then we both will be able to play at the same time. And Star Wars and Disney Frozen systems are currently in development for 2016 and 2017. Each will use a range of technologies to create a system based on the different ways that kids play and experience their favorite stories and characters from that franchise.

What I love about the Playmation is that it is so interactive and gets you off the couch and into the action. You get totally immersed into the game and it is a lot of fun. It is gaming at a new level. The Playmation Marvel's Avengers Starter Pack will has a suggested retail price of $119.99. It will make such a great gift for the gamers in your life.
