Avengers August Seventeenth


Today is Black Widow Day. Earlier today I posted the Lowe’s Black widow kit and now it a new fig from Playmation. Playmation was a video game plus action figure set. You could add different figure and they would appear in the App. I heard the game was being discontinued. I have seen the toys at discount place like Ross, Essex, and Five Below.

Two pics today cause I could decide which I liked better. I really like the DOF with the fist in the foreground.

Have you played the Playmation App?

Lowe’s Black Widow Build and Grow


Black Widow Build and Grow!

August 13 was Black Widow day at Lowe’s. I unfortunately had to work so my wife and son picked up the set and brought it home. We built it Tuesday night.

This was the easiest build so far, just four steps including the wedge base. And only one size of nails so you have to sort them. There’s a couple places where you add stickers before you can hammer nails. But nothing too tricky.

The Black Widow moves at the waist. She spins so it looks likes she attacking with her baton.

What’s Included in a Build and Grow?

The free kit has a wooden project, instructions with a comic on the back,  a patch of that project, an apron and goggles. You can put your child’s name on the apron and iron on the patches. Then they can wear it the next time.

Thor God of Thunder Build and Grow!


Build and Grow!

Last Saturday we made another trip to Lowe’s for Build and Grow. This week’s build was Thor. We were attending an art  show in another city, so had to attend a different location. They were set up different from my local Lowe’s, they didn’t have work stations set up so we just built on the floor.

This was a fairly easy build. The instructions were clear for adults but smaller kids would need help. There are some steps where you have to place stickers before nailing. The instructions point these out just be sure to read them a couple of times.

 

Like all the other heroes, Thor has an action feature, he has an audio component. Press the button in his chest to hear thunder. It is not too loud. So should bother someone if a child is playing with it in the same room.

 

After completing the build. We showed it to the Clinic Captain and got a certificate. The Clinic Captains fill them out while the kids were building the project. That was a nice bit of organization on their part. It has the child’s name , the project name, and the date. The graphics are similar to the ones on the patches and instruction booklets.

The figure comes with a wedge-shaped base with the character’s name on it. Once you get all six the wedges make a circle with the Avengers logo. The Avengers stand back to back in a cool display.

There are two more Build and Grow Avengers events. The next one is Black Widow and Hulk finishes out the collection. The date for the Black Widow set is Aug 13 and the Hulk date has not been posted yet.

What’s Included?

The free kit has a wooden project, instructions with a comic on the back,  a patch of that project, an apron and goggles. The event I went to we saw kids with aprons and goggles. We didn’t get either when we checked in. When we returned the hammer, we saw the aprons and asked for one, but I didn’t see goggles. You can put your child’s name on the apron and iron on the patches. Then they can wear it the next time.

To attend the event you need to register at Lowe’s Build and Grow. Use the store locator to fins the nearest event. Fill out the form. Then print out the waiver and bring it to with you. Registration for the next event opens Monday after an event.
