Our family had such a fun Avengers adventure with a fun shop at Walmart using the The Marvel SuperHero Augmented Reality app and then a family night that included Walmart MarketSide Pizzas and the newly released Avengers.
I was blessed to see the premier of the Avengers a few nights before its release in the theaters courtesy of Disney. I was given two tickets so I took my middle son on a date night to see it. It was such a fun night, everyone was dressed up and yelling and clapping during the movie. There wasn’t one empty seat and you should have seen all the comic book fans there. They were SO into the movie and it made it so fun for my son and I. I really didn’t think I would be that into a superhero movie, they don’t tend to be this mom’s thing but boy was I wrong. I LOVED it, it was truly the greatest one I had ever seen. I know I talked to several moms later and found they were all enjoying it. It had great humor, it was family friendly (superhero violence , of course) and the action was just thrilling! The HULK is certaintly my favorite! Captain America comes in a close second.
So we were pretty excited about the dvd coming out.
We started by going to Walmart, at MIDNIGHT (I know totally crazy, but we didn’t want to even take the chance they would sell out of the exclusive Blu-Ray Combo Packs that included The Avengers Graphic Novel. Walmart is the only store selling this exclusive package.
This app is so so neat, my family loved it. My husband enjoyed it so much he took it to work along with the top of a Marketplace pizza box just to show the guys how cool it was. The app if pointed to the top of the Walmart MarketSide Pizza boxes or to the DVD cover will pop up with the city and the Avengers fighting off their enemies. It even has sound effects, it is a really fun app! The Marvel SuperHero Augmented Reality app was also designed to provide a “gaming” experience, right in the store, you find specific signs and unlock questions, get special pictures and more. It felt like a scavenger hunt and that was fun for the family. Here is a picture of the prime places to find the signs.
One choice on the app has you unlocking questions to answer to see what character from the Avengers you are. You have to find 3 different signs to make that happen. My oldest son did ours and guess who he was? Hawkeye, I think he was a little disappointed he wasn’ t an avenger!
Isn’t this neat?
Some of the signs were a little difficult to use, it took a little bit to get them to come up, but it was really fun and it. It adds great excitement to your shopping experience, it brings something fun to do that is very different.
We were all set!
We then had our family night. This was really fun, I bought a fruit tray with cheese to eat with our pizza. We all watched the Avengers and had chocoate chip cookies for dessert. I Love themed family nights, they are so much fun to have and you really can stay simple.
