Avengers Assemble! with Marvel Playmation


Thank you so much Disney Consumer Products & Interactive Media for sending me this Playmation system to try out for free!


With Playmation, you can become an Avenger and join forces with your favorite super heroes. My 4 year old was in awe of the repulser gear. When I put it on, her eyes nearly popped out of her head as she exclaimed that I was an Avenger and the coolest mom ever! I did not think she could be any more excited until I powered it on and she heard J.A.R.V.I.S. start explaining to us how to use the repulser gear and what our first mission was. You should have seen us, we were both running around the back yard and blasting the power activators, ducking behind trees (and each other), and laughing hysterically. This was such an incredible bonding experience with my daughter. I am a ridiculously huge Marvel Comics fan so being able to pass on the love for these characters to her in such a unique way was a dream come true.

We could start playing right away because you get 25 missions straight out of the box with no downloading required (because waiting is the worst, isn’t it?) and played for nearly two hours straight. Since we only have one repulser gear right now, we were switching back and forth for each mission. When we get a second one we will be able to play together and spar with each other – which is going to be so much fun!  In just the first day we had leveled up to level 7. That is another great thing about Playmation – it tracks your progress and you can level up and earn new abilities. The more you spar with heroes and villian smart figures, the more points you earn to level up – and the more abilities they learn as well! One of the cutest things that happened was when I was battling Iron Skull – as soon as he popped off the power activator (which is what villians do when you defeat them – too cool!) my daughter poked her head out from under the picnic table, looked up at me,  and asked if it was safe to come out. I almost died from a mixture of fangirl happiness and mother happiness – if there is such a thing.


If you are looking to add more to your game play then be sure to download the AvengersNet app! It is available via iOS and coming soon to Android. This app provides you with system updates to your Playmation Marvel Avengers to ensure your play experience is seamless. It also allows you to track your accomplishments, upgrade your gear, see your rewards, and learn so much more about the Marvel Universe. With it you can discover new characters, storylines, and adventures!


Besides the Starter Pack (which is what I received and have played with) you can purchase the following Playmation additions (and don’t worry, I will be when they are released on 10/4):

prowler bot

Prowler Bot
The Prowler Bot is a robotic villian from Ultron’s army. It can find and hunt your Avenger Gear with 360 degree movement, while taking on dozens of enemy personas and powers with lights and sounds. The Prowler Bot makes game play more challenging and unlocks exclusive missions and locations via the AvengersNet app. Purchase your Prowler Bot here.

Hero Smart Figures
There are four types of Hero Smart Figures to help you in a battle: Tanker, Striker, Medic, and Blaster. Just snap a smart figure onto a power activator to bring it in to your battle. Each figure has two attacks to help you level up to earn a unique attack for your Avenger Gear and save Earth. Purchase Hulk, Hulkbuster, Iron ManFalcon, and Black Widow here.

Villian Smart Figures
Villian Smart Figures are doing Ultron’s dirty work to block your plans to save Earth. Snap a villian onto your power activator to bring it in to your battle. Each figure, like the heroes, has two attacks but this time they are using them against you. Defeat the villian and you earn a unique attack as well as unlock a location with exclusive missions via the AvengersNet app. Purchase Ultron and M.O.D.O.K. here.

gamma gear

On top of all of this awesomeness – Gamma Gear will be coming this Fall! The Gamma Gear is inspired by the 7-foot Hulk and lets you smash into battle using motion-sensing technology putting you in the Avengers action. Slip your hands into the Gamma Gear and use the motion-based controls to smash your way through missions and stomp through battlegrounds with different Hulk moves like Ground Slam, Thunder Clap, and other combos. Also, Star Wars and Frozen are coming to Playmation in 2016 and 2017!

Playmation is recommended for ages 6 and up and while my 4 year old had so much fun playing, sometimes I had to help her with the palm cannon solely because it was a tad long for her little arm and would not register when she bent her wrist. Playmation requires 12 AA batteries that are not included, so don’t forget those. Playmation comes to stores on October 4, 2015.

Pre-order or Purchase your Playmation here – you won’t regret it!
