The boys were very excited this week to be testing out the LEGO MARVEL Super Heroes play sets!
We all love LEGO in our house, and I spend many afternoons after kindergarten helping the boys build LEGO. I think lots of generations have loved LEGO, I know I did when I was a kid. Let’s face it, it has been a staple family toy since 1949 (yes, I had to google that; no, I didn’t know it off the top of my head).
As a mum, I am more than happy to encourage the kids to play with LEGO for entertainment and developmental reasons. It is good for creativity, problem solving, construction and motor development. Also it encourages lateral thinking.
Not just that, the boys are Batman and Superman mad. So, to combine the two is just a dream come true for the boys. I have to admit to also being excited, I love wonder woman!
Therefore, it didn’t take long for the boys to get stuck in and test run the new play sets! So, let’s have a look at what is available from the LEGO MARVEL super heroes play sets…
LEGO MARVEL SUPER HEROES MIGHTY MICRO PLAY SETS
Superman vs Bizarro – RRP £8.99
Let’s start with L’s favourite, Superman (as you can see from the above photos, which see him sporting his superman t-shirt and cape). You can zoom into battle to catch Bizarro, armed with blue kryptonite. Watch out though, Bizarro has green kryptonite to even the score! I knew L would love the Superman LEGO, but he has started carrying Bizarro around with him because he likes his purple cape!
We loved this set, which came with two mighty micros vehicles, Bizarro & Superman minifigures and the legendary kryptonite.
Batman vs Killer Moth – RRP £8.99
Moving onto D’s favourite, Batman! Batman has the Batcopter with him, which caused huge excitement with the boys! You can swoop through the air in the Batcopter to catch the Killer Moth. We are all rooting for the Dark Knight to win!
This fabulous set came with two mighty micros vehicles and the Batman & Killer Moth minifigures.
Wonder Woman vs Doomsday – RRP £8.99
I love Wonder Woman and I even have a jumper to prove it! With this play set, she takes on Doomsday who is going in for the attack with his club. Wonder Woman is in her invisible jet though so he better watch out!
This set includes two mighty micro vehicles, Wonder Woman and Doomsday minifigures.
Spider-man vs Scorpion – RRP £8.99
