I was a Cool Mom and Threw an Avengers Party!

The Avengers have taken over our house.

The boys have been big fans for a long time. Captain America’s shield (O’Bear) and Thor’s hammer (C’Man) take weekly swings at each other. So glad they are on the same team or things could get ugly.

Our family is anxiously awaiting the DVD/Blu-ray release on Tuesday. Woot!

To get in the mood, we headed to Walmart, who is also getting ready for the big day. Download the Avenger’s Augmented Realty App and you can do a lot of nifty things as you walk around and shop. Posters, quizzes, games, to keep the kids out of your hair. Six trigger points throughout the store – like a scavenger hunt!

Walmart’s Marketplace Pizza, found in the deli, is one trigger point on the app. Aren’t the boxes neat? Each flavor is a different Super Hero. You can take the App and point it at this box and it will create a virtual Avengers 3-D world right on the box. It is really COOL!

Walmart is also THE place to shop for Marvel Avengers – we bought a costume for Halloween (and the party!). The boys are going to be Thor, Captain America, and Hulk.  There was a great variety of party supplies – plates, napkins, cups, masks, invites, and so much more. And the toys? Well we could have been in that department for a long time!

You can follow us on our shopping trip here.


We piled up with goodies and invited our neighbors over, who have two superhero loving boys too, and had a night of Family Fun!

What do you think?

I had a lot of fun putting it together!

I made our Marketplace Pizza into a Pepperoni Pizza Shield.

The cupcakes too! I was in the red, white, and blue color theme mood. Go Captain America!

Colored chips with salsa – ok Hulk I’ll give ya some green guacamole. Yum!

I was going to mix up the drinks to get different colors for each superhero, but then I ran into the Gatorade and thought PERFECT!

Each kid received a mini Mega Block Avenger set to put together and then take home.

And of course we had to watch a movie – Thor!

The kids had sooo much fun. They kept asking what was the special occasion?  I just replied, that they have the COOLest mom ever.

Yep, even I had fab-u-lous time!


Tuesday, September 25th is the release of The Avengers Blu-Ray/DVD/Graphic Novel Combo Pack from Walmart for $24.95.

We received an early copy of the Graphic Novel and it was a hit! Just recently, the boys have been big into comic books and to have an Avengers one is SO COOL. C’Man stayed up late the other night to finish it and immediately asks, ‘Is there a next one?’ I guess I will be finding out…

Do your kids love The Avengers?
