Super Hero Fun with Captain America and Hasbro: Review and GIVEAWAY!

In my house superhero play has been all the rage! Even though I am a mom of girls, I care for a 3 year old little boy in my family child care program, so I knew the introduction of superhero play was inevitable. Not that it is a bad thing, I just know that most of the time it leads to more violent play. However, the children love being the "good heroes", saving the good guys from the bad. I love watching their imaginations soar as they play, and love it when I find fun props to aid their superhero play. 

Hasbro is one company that has a fantastic line of role play products, including a fantastic assortment designed around this summer's hit movie, Captain America. I was generously sent three Captain America products to review from Hasbro Canada.

Captain America Disc Launching Shield:

Built especially for the Allies’ own super soldier, this indestructible shield became a symbol of strength for people around the world. In the hands of Captain America, it is a powerful weapon. Now you’ve got the chance to wield the shield of the most skilled fighter in the world!
Make crime-fighting action “come alive” with this Disc Launching Shield. When enemies appear and it’s up to you to defeat them, wield your shield to protect yourself from their advances. Just when they think they’ve got you cornered, use your shield to launch your five discs up to 20 feet to take out their forces! With your power and this shield, there’s just no stopping you!
Shield comes with 5 discs.  Ages 5+

Captain America Hero Action Figure:
The ultimate hero is here to save the day! When evil threatens the world, Captain America is there with his indestructible shield and peerless fighting skills. Not even the armed might of an entire nation bent on world conquest can stand against him!
Your highly detailed Captain America figure is ready to take on whatever evil forces come his way! Help your fierce fighter wield his shield against his enemies, defend himself from attacks and strike back with speed and power. Even when you’re surrounded, you and your Captain America figure can battle your way to victory!
Ages 4+

Captain America Hero Mask:
Make super hero action “come alive” with this awesome Captain America Hero Mask. When villains rear their ugly heads and you’ve got to save the day, put on your mask to feel just like your favorite hero! With details that make this mask seem just like the real thing, you’ll want to wear it all the time — or until your evil enemies are defeated! Ages 5+

My Review:

All three of these Captain America toys have been a HUGE hit in my home. They have allowed for hours of role play time and to hear the children act out superhero's and rescuing people is just fantastic. When the kids start to get a little rougher in their play, which is bound to happen, I just remind them gently, that real superhero's help, not hurt people, and that redirects the play, without stopping it completely! 

All three pieces are made of strong plastic and with proper use will last a long time. It does not seem to matter that these are Captain America products, I have seen all the popular superheros come out when the kids where the helmet and use the shield, along with the various capes I owned already! Just great!

If you have a little "superhero" in your midst, I highly recommend all the Hasbro role play products, especially the newest line of Captain America products!
