The Avengers Toys with Captain America, Iron Man, Thor, and the Gang Give Kids Marvelous Marvel Role Models
With the hot new, long awaited Avengers movie finally around, the Avengers merchandise is flying into hands of all ages. The likes of the earliest Avenger through all those award winning, awe inspiring Avengers heroes brings together the best of the bests. No wonder the cry of “Avengers Assemble” goes up ay any costume party or celebration, to include Captain America figures, Iron Men Figures, and even Thor figures or the Hulk look alikes are part of the hero lists of wannabees. To be sure, kids will be singing Live to Rise, Soundgarden’s music from the Avengers movie–the song of the year, no doubt– while enjoying the glory of the Avengers.
Avengers Include the Gals
Now there are a lot of guys mentioned here, but Avengers females as well are acclaimed such as the much loved and admired Scartlett Johansson who played and will play the wonderful Black Widow. The Black Widow, of course, is a skilled spy and warrior for S.H.I.E.L.D. who partners with Hawkeye, and the amazing thing is she doesn’t have to have superpowers to prove herself. It’s her strength of mind and body alone that succeeds.
And girls truly love and admire the Avengers smart and brave The Wasp. She may be small and often not seen behind the big guys, but she can burst an outrageous villain and help to save the day too.
Passing the good deeds forward
The truth is that the Avengers figures stand the test of time being that they have been around since dad’s time, and even since grandpa’s time. Stan Lee created memorable characters with real personalities. Forget about Superman, the Avengers have issues any kid or parent can relate to, and, more importantly, to learn from! Dads all over, just like actor/director Mark Ruffalo, the Hulk, had said that their decent beliefs they now have were created and encouraged by these comic book superheroes they read as a child. So think about that one parents when considering presents for kids, and vote for some worthy Avengers toys and merchandise.
Spiderman has always been a loner. Even though he is not technically an Avenger, Spiderman was always there to lend the Avengers an important helping hand when needed. And that’s why Danny carries his Spiderman blanket buddy to grandma’s, and the inside his Spiderman luggage case is a set of Spiderman magnetic activities- perfect for those car rides and restaurant table situations. He’s now clamoring for the Spiderman lunch box for camp, and probably will begin collecting the rest of those “Spidey Goodies” and begin adding on to them of course some necessary Avengers figures.
For friends Johan and Andres, nothing less than the mini muggs Avengers figures 6-pack will do because of course, teamwork is high on their list of values (thank you moms and dads for instilling this virtue!)..and of course, this value is supported by Captain America, Hulk, Hawkeye, and Nick Fury. Even Iron Man figures high in the contributions to team efforts.
The Avengers store house of goodies includes some good reading for kids with tie-in comics. One series in fact features Black Widow to satisfy all those female Avengers lovers.
Science and Responsibility
Technology is our world and each of the Avengers figures tends to deal with how people use science–either responsibly or irresponsibly. And speaking of responsibility, there is nothing like the great story of how Thor figures out his own flaws and weaknesses and learns to deal with them. He must master his temper and realize that compassion and humility is what brings him strength and power. And any parent would be proud to have their child brave, humble honorable, sticking to good values like Captain America, who makes such ideas cool and relevant, and not just old-fashioned.
Kids who love the marvel avengers are overheard taking their Iron Man action figure, or Captain America, and the rest to assemble at the Avengers Mansion to hear about the latest situation. The wonderful female Wasp character reminds them they are there to help not to fight. This group of kids with their avengers merchandise–those action figures that really look like the people, join up their Captain America and/or Thor on his Rainbow Bridge Asgard paired with the evil Loki and Captain America’s arch enemy the Red Skull.
Peak in to overhear how Ronnie managed his Iron Man figure to deal in constructive ways with the enemy Terron, and with other man made biological life forms.
What Could Possibly Be Next!
At the end of the day, have your kids pack up their avengers actions figures in an Avengers backpack just like Bryan with his First Avenger Captain America multi compartment backpack. He’s ready for Captain America 2 in 2014, but brother Brandon is waiting for his favorite, Iron Man 3 in 2013!
Thumbs up! Sign up to Moshi Monsters if you keep on finding borrowed Moshi Monster moshlings under your feet or resting on your footstool. Or, open your cereal cabinet and there, lurking in front is another borrowed monster. Don’t worry, it’s probably just Moshi Monster Zommer plush, looking his best zombie, but hungry of course, and needing to eat. Well, when your kids can finally do their Moshi Monster log in, you’ll learn the personalities, moods, and needs of the likes of Zommer, or maybe their choice monster will be the cute, shy, sweet and friendly, dance loving, funky pop music loving Poppet.
That all really relates to your child’s personality, and moods, things they like to do, and especially their little annoying flaws. But with 6 wonderfully, described characters, there will be one or more they will relate to –as themselves or their BFF’s. No doubt for many girls, the Moshi Monsters plush most chosen is Luvli. What a surprise! She’s the diva queen, looking fashionably beautiful, angelic (but bossy, mind you). Loves shopping and dancing. Whereas lots of boys like Diavalo, (or are like Diavalo) he’s got wings and can fly, sports sneakers, loves mischief, and can roar with lava when he’s angry.
Both boys and girls pick Furi. The Moshi Monster Furi plush is one of the most popular and loved of the plush characters because it’s cuddly, looks a bit depressed but is really happy underneath, known to be messy, and does not like to be bored–that all important “B”-word!
A Meaningful Adventure
When it comes to web sites, games, and toys, you can feel a confidence that your Marsha or Mannie’s adventure in a Moshi Monsters log in is not wasted, mindless.
Go moshi–moshi games that is, which are already tops in social game sites for kids 6-11. There are kids signed up to Moshi Monsters in the millions each month, and the toys they need and love to hold and toss around–these Moshi Monster collectables and Moshi Monster plush characters, are hot to trot.
The Moshi Methods Breed Eggs and Egg-cellent Family Conversations
Get in on the cuteness with your kids to share some great conversation on a subject they really will let you in on. And this site and Moshi Monster game plan is not too complicated, even though it is loaded with good teachable lessons–of all kinds. Cameron, age 7, describes it for parents’ know-how: ” Your Moshi Monster pops up on the screen and tells you what to do. Then another one also tells you more. I can look for Moshlings and also find their eggs which hatch to a baby and then grow up to grown up Moshlings. The eggs go to a special building and you can go to Monstro City and buy houses. I want I.G.G.Y. moshling because on login he’s chasing your mouse. I have 20-somthing moshlings. ”
And about Monstro City, 9 year old Jessica says, “Monstro City is a great place to be on because it is really so kind, and against bullies.”
And from 8 year old twins Landon and Leni, “my whole family plays Moshi Monsters games, and we have adopted a few for each person. ”
This is from a happy parent. ” My son Bryan had fun and learned a lot from the Moshi games in the Starcade like the numbers games.”
Best On Moshi Monsters Personalities
There’s only 6 main monsters, but as usual the personalities are all unique and wonderful. Many kids will want at least one Katsume at home, because she’s just so cute, gentle and sweet like a bunny or kitty with floppy ears and whiskers. “Oh, Katsuma, so that’s the monster plush toy that’s already taken over Mandy’s desk of pictures, tattoos, and all stuff Katsuma.” Just watch, mom, because like real life and kids, Katsuma– if she’s not happy, will scratch at the computer screen and jump around.
That’s the really interesting thing about Moshi Monsters–kids play the games with them but have to get to know a particular personality, needs, and the character’s reactions to things. These monsters are not just perfect, but have dimension–they are wise, silly, greedy, sweet, bossy, mischievous, popular, shy, slobby, or neat. This is a great way to sneak in some valuable human relationship training at this kid level! It works because when the kids sign up to Moshi Monsters they immediately have to begin to take care of their monster carefully, or suffer the consequences. They (the monsters as well as your child) need food, a home, clothes and how to stay happy and comfortable.
The Monster Journey, Puzzles, Games Do Teach
Then, your child has to take the monster on a journey through the city by means of solving puzzles. Yes, these moshi games are mind challenges to accomplish (and hopefully your child will relate that to accomplishing tasks at home too!). The Moshi Monsters don’t go easily through these challenges (as do kids) and have particular reactions to the challenges (as do your kids!) and needs to be taken care of. Again, a really worthwhile social skill to get that personalities have their good and not so good aspects. For example, don’t let Moshi Monster Diavalo plush with his devilishly adorable looks fool you because he is not so hot, or cool, if he doesn’t get tickled twice a day.
With puzzles and challenges, tasks accomplished, rewards are given, and used for more travels.
Hatching Moshlings of all Species
The main moshis get lonely and like and need little moshling friends. But kids need to hatch them. The moshlings come in all categories of the pets and hobbies kids love: birds, dinos, fishies, kitties, puppies, ponies, ninjas, beasts, spookes, worldies, technies, tunes, –foodies! So, best to get the handy good value of 4 pack or 8 pack poshlings, usually with 2 surprise moshlings added in to the pack. My buddy Joanna loves her 4 pack Angel, Waldo, Flumpy and Gingersnap, but Lyndsay won’t trade the 4 pack Stanley, Chop Chop, Fifi, and Shelby. One of the great things about taking care of moshis and raising moshlings is that kids feel pride, a great accomplishment. Listen to these kids in their own words: ”
Moshi Monsters At the Beginning or the End of the Day
At the end of the day, pile all your monsters (that is the Moshi Monsters toys and moshlings, not Timmy or Tina) into that Moshi Monster backpack, just until morning when it’s time again for moshi. Moshi games, after all do have a brand new page to open up bright and early to occupy the kids with something to think about! This is a fantastic web page of news, events, projects, things to think about, not just mindless arcades and games. How else can you learn exactly how to write a limerick? Or they’ll hear about Growly Grump day and getting excellent cucumber, curry, cabbage or saffron glump cakes at the Gross-ery store. Kids look forward to their shout outs –a way for kids to honor other kids like” I would like to shout out to lovlybee123 she’s great.” Or learn some fact like “today is Pi day, no not pie”, and the page goes a fun pun filled explanation.
Art projects, contests abound as well. As 9 year old Wendy says, ” This is a good city, I love it, and I even love the daily challenge which quizzes on my multiplications, and spelling, and it’s all a lot of fun. And best of all I can cuddle my Moshi Monsters plush all day, if I could, cool as a chill bird! Online I make sure my moshies don’t get sad and gloomy, and I give them the right attention, food and a nice house.” What could be better than that!
