Have you see this hot new toy? It is an interactive way for kids to really get into their games! The Disney Playmation is on store shelves right now at a suggested retail price of $120 (I found a better deal – see below). Of course, before you run out and spend your money on this, it might be helpful if I gave you my honest opinion!
First of all, you might be wondering – what in the world is the Disney Playmation? It is a system of connected wearables and toys which combine smart technology and that infamous storytelling that Disney is so awesome at doing. They can run around but yet – stay connected to technology!
What is so unique about this system is that no console is needed (yep – you don’t have to spend $300!!!). There are no wires. But yet, kids are fully involved in the game. They are up and running around the room. They are using their imaginations to stay involved in the game. While right now, they have only Avengers available, they will be releasing both a Star Wars AND Frozen versions too!!
We had the chance to try this out ourselves. Some of the things that really caught my eye included that first of all – it is a go anywhere game. You can truly play it just about anywhere you are at. Just toss it into your kids’ bag and they can take it with them to a friend’s house to play. No worries about spending time connecting it to any TV – it doesn’t need one!
The other thing I loved is that my kids were moving! Yes!! A game that had them running around the house instead of sitting like rocks on the sofa playing a game. They were yelling and laughing – but best of all – they were moving. No more dormant video game!!!
The games kicks off with 25 missions – which is plenty to keep kids busy for a while. You can buy additional figures for around $15 and keep the fun going! That makes it affordable to add on different ways to play (vs. those $60 video games).
HOW DOES THIS WORK?
To start, you will purchase a Starter Kit. It comes with therepulsor gear (the arm sleeve), two smart figures (Captain America and Iron Skull) and two power activators.
You use the repulsor gear to control game functions such as attack, volume, your missions, free play and more. The sound (J.A.R.V.I.S. and background sound of the mission environment) brings you into the mission and gives orders. If you have a friend who has a system, you can actually play together!! You just have to press the sync button on each repulsor and you’ll be teamed up and ready to play together!
Your power activator flashes different colors to communicate with the player on the type of move needed in order to avoid being attacked. You will engage in different strategies in order to take down each villan. You can then go into smart figures play mode. Each one will unlock new weapons, missions and more!
WHERE CAN I BUY ONE?!
Now that you are stoked and want to get one for your kids, you can find it at many retailers nationwide. Right now, one of the best deals is at Walmart, where you can get your Starter Pack for just $49.99 – that is a savings of $50 off of their price of $99.99!!! Walmart also has the characters for less than the $14.99 retail price!
Just imagine giving your kids an awesome gift that not only gets them up and moving and fully involved in the game, but keeps your budget completely in check!!!
