Marvel Avengers is HOT HOT HOT right now!
If you haven’t heard about the upcoming release of the Marvel Avengers Movie, then you probably don’t have a child or a TV. It is the thing right now. There is even a brand new fun app. You can download the app and then use it at participating Walmart Stores.
The Augmented Reality App starts with you taking a quiz to determine which Avenger character you are. After you start the app you go to one of the special Avenger signs in Walmart and scan with your smartphone. Once scanned a portion of the image will be animated and present you with three questions. After doing this at three signs the app will be unlocked for your use. The app will allow you to see which Avenger you are based on the answers to the questions. It will allow you to share or save the photo of you as the Avenger. The Avengers DVD sign at Walmart will bring additional 3D animations. There is also a section where you can take a photo of your friends with the Avengers.
We only found one “Trigger Point” at our local store (in the produce section above the Market Side Pizzas), but we plan to visit several more so that we can experience all the fun. The displays are big, so you can’t miss them! And oh my goodness, you just can’t believe all the Avenger goodies. We found toys, party plates & favors, costumes, and more.
We had a very special surprise planned for our little “adopted” family, from our church. We knew that they were going on a road trip, so we decided to assemble some items that would keep the children occupied on the long drive. We got some Marvel Avengers candies, sticker books, assorted party favors, along with a table cloth, plates, and cups. We also purchase crayons, stencils, and spiral notebooks. We purchase some small plastic storage containers, (one for each child) to place everything in.
In hindsight, I wish that I had purchased one of these tote bags for each child, instead of the plastic containers. They would have loved them, and they would have easily fit under the seats in the car.
We also decided that it would be fun to enjoy a family fun night with them…so pizza had to be on the menu. Walmart has a huge selection of Market Side pizzas, and right now you can get many that have Marvel Avengers characters on the boxes.
We got a large Cheese pizza, and a large Ultimate Meat pizza. We also picked up some yummy bread sticks for us. Soda and cookies went into the cart, to round out the meal.
We checked out and headed home, so that I could assemble the boxes for the kids. I divided everything up, and then went to my computer. At Walmart.com., I downloaded some Marvel Avengers masks, for the kiddos to color and cut out (Super Hero – Iron Man, Captain America, Thor and The Hulk).
I called over to their house, and told the mom to turn on her oven. We packed up the car and headed out. We we got there we were greeted by all 5 of the kids, and boy were they excited when they saw the pizzas…but WOW – the excitement went over the top when they saw the Avenger characters on the boxes. Pizzas were placed in the oven, and while they were baking, we had the children clean off the table and set it with the table cloth, plates and cups.
The pizza was a hit. It really was good, and the two large pies were more than enough to fill us all up!
Did you know that you can pre-order an Exclusive Blu-ray/DVD/Novel Combo Pack at Walmart? I was sent a copy of the Novel. My husband scooped it our of my hand just as soon as I opened the envelope that it came in. It is a very sturdy paper back. I was quite impressed with the brightness of the illustrations. I look forward to reading it to many of my grandchildren.
