My Girls Pick Superheroes Over Dolls

My girls are typical little princesses who have their dolls, dresses, jewelry, and purses. It is normal, however, to see my three year old in a dress wearing her superhero accessories, or playing with her Marvel action figures! We have a healthy love, or maybe a healthy obsession, with all superheroes; but our real love is directed at the Avengers! In anticipation for the release of MARVEL's The Avengers: Age of Ultron, we took the girls to Walmart and let them pick out their favorite superhero accessories to dress up as! We threw in some affordable finds from the clothing section to complete their look!

Emma's favorite Avenger is Iron Man and she hasn't stopped wearing these pieces since we got home with them. Audrey was perfectly outfitted as Thor, and doesn't she look adorable? I am pretty sure she could take this getup down to Hollywood and be cast as baby-Thor in a heartbeat.

Long before we had kids Daniel and I were avid followers of the Marvel franchise, and have passed that love on to our kids. Daniel never turns down an opportunity to play with the girls, and he was more than excited to take on the role of Hulk and he was beaten (ahem, I mean he let her win) by Emma and she stood victoriously as the top Avenger in our living room!

Daniel and I are going to be seeing MARVEL's The Avengers: Age of Ultron this opening weekend. I mean, who can wait?? We can't wait until the girls are older and can have movie marathons with us. They will love seeing their favorite action heroes in real form! But until then, they get to run around ruling the universe that is The Redding-World!!

While you're shopping at Walmart for your new Avengers accessories, be sure to download the app Superheroes Assemble on in the iTunes App Store or Google Play Store! You'll be able to keep up to date with the latest movie and behind-the-scenes action. Plus, scan Avengers displays at Walmart and to become your favorite Avenger, explore a Hulkbuster training facility in a cool 360 degree interactive space and to bring Marvel's Avengers: Age of Ultron characters to life with augmented reality.
Scan in store signage from Kellogg's, Hasboro, Dr. Pepper or Marvel to reveal secret content! You can also scan the specially marked Avengers packaging of these brands to unlock even more secret content! Scan any 12 packs of Dr. Peppers Avengers or scan the in-store signage to unlock a digital comic book. This exciting comic book is brought to you by Dr. Pepper

We also grabbed some super-snacks from Walmart that matched our superhero abilities. Avengers need snacks too! The girls were tickled to see their favorite characters on the packaging, and kept asking us which symbol was on each Cheez-It that went into their mouths. I'd say it was a very Marvel-ous day!

Will you be seeing MARVEL's The Avengers: Age of Ultron? Do you have girls who love superheroes too? I'd love to hear about your child's favorite Avenger!

  1. I love The Avengers, and so does my eldest boy, but my daughter doesn't know a whole lot about them. I have NOT done my job as a parent, clearly! #client
