With Great Power Comes Great Responsibility – Why Spiderman is a Great Role Model

Spiderman is Just Plain Fun

First of all, there’s no denying it, every kid loves Spiderman right?  He just looks cool and does that really cool trick with his hands as he leaps from building to building! What’s not to like?  This is the first reason that Spiderman is a great role model.  He is effective because kids actually like him.  It would be great if kids wanted to play with Einstein or Shakespeare action figures but Spiderman is exciting, colorful and funny.  Give a child a Spiderman action figure and they’re off to fight bad guys and web sligging around in no time.  It’s hard to imagine childhood without a Spiderman figure!

The Spectacular Spiderman’s Smarts

Spiderman, along with Iron Man, The Hulk and Mr. Fantastic, is one of Marvel’s top scientists.  Not only does Spiderman get his powers from a radioactive spider, he also uses science to design his unbreakable webs and extremely durable suit.  Try packing up a healthy lunch in a Spiderman lunch bag, throwing some juice in a Spiderman canteen and embarking on a science adventure in your own backyard.  Another great science toy are our set of Spiderman magnets, which can be used to teach the magical science of magnetism!

Spiderman and Creative Problem Solving

Spiderman doesn’t defeat the Green Goblin, Electro, The Chameleon or Dr. Octopus with brute strength.  Instead, he gets creative and uses his mind to beat the bad guys.  If your kid’s role model is The Hulk they may go around smashing everything.  With Spiderman as a role model a child will become interest in solving problems without fighting.  Great toys for instilling a sense of imagination and puzzle solving are Spiderman coloring books and puzzles.  In addition to Spiderman coloring pages our activity books also contain Spiderman coloring games and puzzles to get your child’s young mind web slinging to the top of the class!  Here’s a tip: Keep some crayons and extra Spiderman coloring sheet with you for those times when your child needs an entertaining distraction.

Aunt May and Uncle Ben – The Power of Family

It was Peter Parker’s Uncle Ben who said, “With great power comes great responsibility.”  In fact Spiderman loved his family so much that when his dear Uncle Ben died, he vowed to live by his example and to always protect his kindly Aunt May.  Spiderman is a great role model because he loves his friends and family so dearly and would do anything to protect them.

Peter Parker – The Daily Bugle’s World Class Photographer

In addition to his careers as a scientist, teacher and superhero Peter Parker is also a photographer.  Spiderman is an artist!  What better way to get kids interested in art than with some crayons and Spiderman coloring sheets?  Set up Spiderman action figures for a photo shoot and sell them to grumpy old J. Jonah Jameson!  Unlike other heroes, Spiderman has a direct connection to art, making Spiderman coloring books superior to any other superhero coloring book!
