Superhero Family Fun with #MarvelAvengersWMT #Cbias


The excitement in my home has been building toward Tuesday, the release of The Avengers exclusive Blu-Ray/DVD/Novel Combo Pack at Walmart! This was the first movie we had seen in the theater in truthfully, about 3 years. It has to be something really special to get us into the theater with all four kids. For weeks after they first seen the movie it was all they talked about, and have been counting down the days until they could watch it again. With all their excitement, we had to turn family movie night into something a bit more fun this week. We turned it into an Avengers themed day AND night, of family fun.

Since Fridays are always family movie night, we typically grab some snacks  a movie we can all enjoy, and camp out together in the living room. However, since this was no ordinary family movie night. I knew we had to hit up our local Walmart for some extra special treats and themed fun.

My boys are usually not too thrilled to have to shop with Mom, but this week was different! The night before we download a fun new app that would surely keep them busy while I shopped. The Avengers Augmented Reality app, is packed with Avengers fun for all. 

Avengers app

Ever wanted to know which Avenger you would be? With the app loaded you can now find in-store trigger points, throughout Walmart, that unlock question. When you are finished with the quiz, the app will let you know which Avenger you’re most like. That isn’t all the app does though! By scanning select Marvel products with your iOS or Android device, you can unlock exclusive content, such as video recaps, character bios, creator commentaries, and even virtual 3D Worlds were you can watch battle unfold.

With the kids on the lookout for trigger points, I was on the lookout for products that would make a good fit for family fun night, and I have to say, I was off to a great start. As soon as we walked into our Walmart we notice the display of Marketside Pizza.

Pizza

Not only did we want to try out the app with the box, but what could be more perfect for the night then fresh pizza in Avengers packaging! We picked a few of our favorite pies, tossed them in our cart and head for apparel and toys.

With our cart full we checked out and headed home to start preparing for our fun filled day – You can check out my entire #MarvelAvengersWMT shopping trip in my Google+ album.

We got the day started with some pizza and chips for lunch and then everyone went and put on there new Avengers shirts. While the kids wrestled around showing off their best superhero moves, Mom went to work making a special pre-movie and games snack. Superhero cupcakes!

While we waited for them to cool, it was time to break out some of our most favorite Marvel video games. We found that in Ultimate Alliance 2 we could all pick our favorite Avenger to play as – of course I was Thor!

With a few hours of games under our belt, we moved on to relaxing and enjoying a special Movie in honor of the Avengers.  After going through all our choices over and over, I thought I had won and we were going with Thor, but the boys wanted to watch Iron Man 2 again. I really couldn't complain, I’m a big Tony Stark fan as well ;)

With our Marvel ice pops in hand, we curled up together, turned on the movie and called it a night.

Lol...I have to find that pizza! May husband is a Marvel comic book collector so he usually gets a kick out of anything related. Avengers is one of his favorite comic series, I swear we've watched every related movie 1000 times! Pretty sure he'll want to see this app :)

That's a pretty good idea to have an app that looks for 'trigger points' in the store. It would make shopping a little more interesting!

I miss having regular Friday night movie nights with the whole family. We still squeeze them in once or twice a month but now that the kids are older, it more often Mom, Dad and pooch!
