I have to admit that I think I was just as excited about Playmation when I heard about it as the kids were. Playmation is like playing make believe but taking it to the next level.
Check out this video so you get a better idea of what to expect with Playmation….
Imagine be connected to an app via wearable smart gear and getting to be the superhero. I know, I get excited by it. If you love superheroes as much as we do in our house, then you will love Playmation.
Let’s talk about what you get in the starter kit because you have to start out your Playmation experience with the purchase of a starter kit….
In the Playmation Starter Kit is:
**Repulsor Gear with your first 25 on-board missions
**Power Activators x 2
**Captain America Smart Figure
**Iron Skull Smart Figure
If your kids have a friend with Playmation they can sync their gear and play together. This is an awesome option that has kids engaging in active role playing of their favorite heroes while encompassing the video game aspect in with it. It is a wonderful and winning combination.
I have not had a chance to play the multiplayer mode, but it looks like it would be awesome. I could imagine my Little One and a friend running around on missions as their favorite superheroes, saving the world.
The Avengersnet App is what keeps track of the missions. You can also download more missions via the app. The app is where you receive your messages from the Avengers as well.
As with similar products, you can grow your Playmation experience and collection by purchasing additional characters for the set. Both heroes and villains are available for purchase. I want to add Black Widow to our collection. 🙂
The key to you being a part of the Playmation world is through the repulsor that you strap on.
STRAP ON THE REPULSOR AND ENTER THE ACTION.
> Communicate with JARVIS and Iron Man himself.
> Enter the action with 25 pre-loaded missions that will take you from New York to Wakanda and back.
> Control the battle with motion-sensing technology that responds to your movement.
> Block, dodge, sneak, run and jump–you’ve got to move to win.
The wonderful thing about Playmation other than everything about it, is that they have a ton of videos to help you out with everything you could imagine. Make sure to visit the Playmation YouTube channel to get more tips and tricks for Playmation.
Honestly I think Playmation sells itself. It is the perfect combination of engaging kinds in “traditional” make believe play and more current gaming play that kids love.
I have read many reviews on Playmation so far and the reviews rave about how awesome Playmation is. I agree and recommend that you check out Playmation this holiday season as it will undoubtedly be on many wish lists and a hot item that will fly off the shelves.
