Unlock Your Own Superhero
The word superhero evokes images of men and women in cool uniforms. Some can fly, others have superhuman strength, and others use their intelligence to save the day.
What is it exactly that makes us want to mirror the lives of Tony Stark or Captain America? It isn't the fancy gadgets nor is it transforming into a man with the strength of an entire army battalion, though borrowing a few of Tony Stark's gadgets could be fun for an afternoon.
No, it's because superheroes unlock their potential.
More than anything, young girls and boys want to unlock their potential and become the most powerful person they can be. Growing up we played superheroes and immersed ourselves into their world and through battling the evils of Loki and Red Skull. We discovered that we could save the world. We could do anything and be anyone that we wanted to be. This is why I was extremely excited for Mom It Forward to partner with Marvel Super Hero Mashers — we love our superheroes!
Did you know that our very own Jyl Johnson Pattee adores Spiderman? And just like Jyl, I knew my Ryker would be particularly excited to receive not only one Super Hero Masher, but TWO. Getting Iron Patriot couldn't have made this little guy any more excited!
If your kids are like Ryk, then they most likely are a bit rough and tough on their toys. Nothing ruins an inside-day more than when a toy is broken and you have no idea how to fix it. That's the beauty with the Marvel Super Hero Mashers!
Two minutes after I'd handed him an already constructed Iron Patriot, Ryker came to me sporting quite the upset face as he showed me that he'd pulled the leg off. I then showed him that the toys were meant to break apart and quickly removed all of the pieces and showed him that a leg could now be an arm or even a head if he wanted. Every part of them is made to break apart and be re-attached.
How to make your own superhero?
- Definitely grab more than two heroes, in fact I'll buy them all because of how much fun they were for Ryker, but also mom and dad.
- If you do happen to buy more than two, keep the majority of them hidden and save them for a rainy day.
- Don't be afraid to make the craziest superhero. Let your creativity break free. Put Iron Man's blaster as a leg on Captain American and you've made Captain America a science fiction pirate
- Choose a meaningful name for your hero. Words like "captain, lieutenant, general, etc."
- Don't be afraid to mix villain and hero parts. Make a villain as strong or even stronger than your hero and watch him unlock his greatness.
