1 Mom + 1 Dad + 3 Daughters = 5 MARVEL-LOVING FANS
I don’t know how to even begin to tell you how MARVEL and The Avengers have invaded our home. When we ended up with three daughters, I think my husband’s hopes for anything remotely boy-oriented went out the window. My girls are all pretty “girly” and it’s unusual for any of us to sit down and watch sports on the TV with my husband. But… for some reason, we have ALL become MARVEL addicts. Yep… ADDICTS! Since The Avengers: Age of Ultron is inching toward opening day on May 1st, we have gotten all giddy again over our favorite characters and can’t wait to see them again on the big screen.
We thought it would be fun to have an AVENGERS day where we re-watched all the movies leading up to attending the new film this weekend. Yes… we DO have them all. I also thought we would absolutely need to have a few “things” in order to watch our film-fest at home. Off to Walmart to pick up some supplies.
The marketing for this is phenomenal. Despite the fact that I don’t have sons, I knew my daughters would love some Avengers toys. But honestly… I didn’t realize how much they would love them!
STOP FIGHTING! I picked up Captain America, Iron Man, Hulk and Thor dolls… and who did they all fight over? Captain America! Even my husband, who insisted HE was Captain America and as the head of the family should have the doll for himself. Honestly… a 50 year old man fighting with 3 little girls over a Super Hero doll! Have you ever?
I also purchased a bunch of snacks to tide us over as we spent a marathon day watching movies.
Before you head to the store, download the awesome The Avengers: Age of Ultron app. It’s currently available in iTunes and the Google Play store. With this app you’ll be able to keep up on all the latest movie and behind-the-scenes action. You can scan Avengers displays throughout Walmart and Walmart.com to become your favorite Avenger, and you can bring MARVEL’s The Avengers: Age of Ultron characters to life with augmented reality.
Also, remember to scan in-store signage and all your favorite products that contain The Avengers: Age of Ultron images (Kelloggy’s, Hasbro, Dr. Pepper, and Marvel) to reveal super-secret content. If you scan any 12 packs of Dr. Pepper Avengers or scan the in-store signage, you will be able to unlock a digital comic book. Wow… thanks Dr. Pepper!
Welcome to our MARVEL The Avengers movie marathon!
It all started with an awesome banner (not to be confused with Bruce Banner). I found some foil stars in the craft store and cut out white letters to glue in the middle of them. I outlined the letters in red and tied the stars together with twine.
We had Cheez-Its with The Avengers logos on them (how cool are these?), Thor’s hammer pops, made with krispy bars and melted chocolate, Iron-Man cocktails (orange soda and grenadine) and a Captain America inspired fruit tart. Those darn blueberries weren’t cooperating… they kept sinking into the custard.
All ready to snack and watch movies.
Of course, my girls decided to get involved and created their own miniature version of The Avengers using their dolls. The only problem was that there wasn’t a Hawkeye, Fury, or Black Widow doll. No worries… my girls created their own. Because in our house, it’s all about the dolls.
