Like most children, the boys are obsessed with superheroes – in particular Batman and Superman.
When they play D is batman and L is always superman, when dressing up or role-playing. They also had a lot of fun the other week reviewing the Lego Marvel Super Hero series.
“How does Batman’s mum call him in for dinner?
Dinner, dinner, dinner, dinner, dinner, dinner, dinner, dinner, batman.”
They had little batman and superman t-shirts, when they were newborns. We managed to keep it up and every time they grew out of their clothes, we replaced the batman and superman attire. As they have got older it has progressed with fun capes and onesies being added to the equation.
A few weeks ago we decided to be brave and take the boys to the cinema for the first time.
What did we go to see? The Lego batman movie of course! We have never been sure if they would sit through a movie before but we had a feeling that they would for this one. And we were right, the boys loved the excitement of putting their 3D glasses on and getting to choose a bag of sweeties from the counter. They loved seeing their favourite characters on the big screen.
Lego Discovery Centre
Then… last week we went to the Legoland Discovery Centre, where we saw full-sized Lego batman and superman characters. The boys squealed with delight when they saw them.
It was a fun day out, however we did have the moment all parents dread. They fell asleep on the way home – at 4pm!!!! Which of course meant the boys did not want to go to bed and were awake for hours. On a Sunday. Therefore, they were also tired and grumpy on Monday. Any parent will know the knock on effect this has!
Itty Bittys fun…
With all this going on in recent weeks, the boys were so excited to receive a new range of soft toy’s – Hallmarks Itty Bittys range – to test out. You have probably guessed which characters they choose, Batman and Superman of course !!!
The boys have loved these cuddly Itty Bittys characters. They have taken them to bed with them every night, cuddling the soft toys tight. They are the perfect size for them to have in their school bag for comfort when needed.
The best thing is they have been using them to recreate bit out of the films that they have seen.
They really are the cutest thing and the boys have been wondering what other toys they have in the superhero Itty Bittys range.
So we had a quick glance online and the answer is more than you can imagine!
They have wonder woman, Batgirl, Harley Quinn, Aquaman and green lantern. The range doesn’t just stock superheroes, they have loads of other characters as well, with just about every Disney and Star Wars character you can think of.
These make fantastic birthday gifts. At only £6 a toy they are very reasonably priced.
All-in-all, the kids are not going to stop loving these characters any time soon! The boys can’t wait to watch the proper movies. They will have to wait a year (or ten) before I will allow them to watch the grown up movies.
Shhh… please no one tell them the ending to Batman vs Superman. I am not sure I will ever get over that!!!
