Disney Playmation Review and a $150 Babies ‘R’ Us Gift Card Giveaway!!

*I received a Playmation for review. All my opinions are my own and not swayed by outside sources. *

Last month I attended a Disney Press Trip in California where I got to meet Mike Goslin, who is the mastermind behind Playmation. I remember sitting there at the meeting and thinking just how cool the Playmation sounds and that I bet it would be the toy of the year this holiday season! Well, I know I am right on the first account and am pretty sure I will be right on the second account too!

“Playmation is a new system of toys and wearables that work together to create a new kind of play experience. We’re basically bringing old school play into the twenty first century using technology and wrapping in Disney stories. We are currently launching the first playmation with The Avengers.Screen-Shot-2015-10-07-at-8.45.09-PM

We’re giving kids superhero powers for real in the real world. For example, if you can imagine you have Iron Man’s glove. I can put that on and battle a robot across the room. A real robot and I shoot it and I feel a kick in my hand and there’s great audio effects and light streaming down my arm and the robot over there shakes and falls over and then we’re building stories on top of that kind of an experience.” – Mike Goslin

Before I even went on the press trip, I received the Disney Playmation but did not get a chance to set it up until I returned home. I was SO excited to set it up because I learned all about the awesome features on the press trip. Just imagine a world where imagination and physicality meets the imagination world. This is the whole concept of Playmation where kids can use their imaginations in a gaming role where no physical console is needed!  Kids can control their imaginations and be involved in a role playing role, as if they are actually Iron Man.

When we first received the Disney Playmation Starter Pack, it was a full inter-connected game play system that includes 2 smart figures (Iron Man and Captain America), 2 power activators, and a repulsor gear that your kids can wear on their arm. There is no real set up except putting in the Duracell batteries in, which is the real beauty of this kit. It all works through and connected with infrared light technology and Blue Tooth flow energy. They all have different kids of networks for different devices but they all connect to each other and the cloud so they can update it and the experience evolves as you play more. It is really so neat!DSC_0400

Now for the fun part putting it on and getting the game started. Zane immediately put the repulsor gear on his hand and from there was able to control the battle with motion-sensing technology. It talks to you once on to be able to block, dodge, sneak, run, leap, punch, and jump. He had the two smart figures that are able to team up with Captain America in battle to level-up and earn new abilities. It is a game of fun, skill, but most of all imagination. It is all about making their imagination a reality in the gaming world.Disney Playmation

With the two power activators, you are able to battle over 20 different enemies and load the various figures such as Captain America to recognize and interact with each character. You can use this as a blaster or a multi player battling if other kids want to get involved or even adults.

PlaymationThere are 25 available missions that you can explore in 4 different locations. You can explore additional locations and missions to download to your gear if you like on the avengersnet. There is even an AvengerNet App where you can view mission details and track your battle stats. You can customize your gear with the abilities you earn on this app and can get messages from the rest of the Avengers.

DSC_0398While this gaming system comes with 2 figures (Iron Man and Captain America), you can expand more to the line and collect additional villains and hero smart figures to earn avengers gear upgrades and unlock new locations.

Now you can see why Disney Playmation will be the toy of the year! It is just so unbelievably neat and allows us all to use our imaginations in more ways that we can think of!DSC_0401

    My kids would love the different missions that you can explore in 4 different locations. They’d like the variety.

  2. Julie Lundstrom says

    It reminds me of Disney Infinity and Skylanders how you can buy more figures to add to your collection and it can be played with your Ipads. This is something that my son will enjoy playing.

  3. Sarah Phillips says

    What I like best is the Android app you can download to access the “Global Threat Matrix” to see where the Avengers need you most. The app allows you to track your battle stats, check in with the Avengers, and download more missions to your gear. I think my nephew would LOVE being able to download more missions to his gear. He would be super excited seeing that the Avengers needed him to go somewhere and battle with them :)

  4. Delirah M says

    I really like that you can track the activity on the free app and all the cool gear that you can wear. Adults can wear it too! :)

  5. vickie Couturier says

    i like
    Your direct link to Avengers Headquarters. Access the Global Threat Matrix to see where the Avengers need you most. Track your battle stats, check in with the Avengers, and download more missions to your gear. Ask a parent first.

  6. Dawn Monroe says

    I think they would like the prowler block and the repolsur gear. Playmation reminds me a little of laser tag which I know my grand kids would enjoy.

  7. says

    My son is obsessed with superheroes, particularly Captain America… I think everything about this is really cool but it’s a little advanced for my 3 year old! He can try it out someday though :)

  8. Jeanna Massman says

    My grandson would love this. He is crazy about superheroes and he would love to feel like he was part of the action!

  9. Debbie Warila says

    This would be such a great gift for my young great-nephews. They’re both at the age where they get lost for hours in imaginative play. I love that different missins are available.

  10. Erika W. says

    My son would love this! I like that it has different missions they can complete to give them a sense of accomplishment.

  11. D Schmidt says

    Visited and I love At Avengers Labs, Tony Stark and Dr. Bruce Banner have developed gear that lets you team up with the Avengers and help them battle against Ultron’s armies.

  12. Samii Meyer says

    I like that it is interactive and it makes kids feel like they are actually involved with the game instead of just playing it!

  13. Lauryn R says

    Playmation sounds so awesome!! I really like the Iron Man Glove, how cool! My kids (as well as myself and husband) would have a blast playing this!

  14. Tara L says

    I like the Track your battle app! It gives you a direct link to Avengers Headquarters so your child can see where the Avengers need you most.

  15. Sara Lima says

    I love the online component – so you can see where you are needed by the Avengers, and can download your missions, but I especially love that it’s so interactive and physically active, and even adults can play. What an imaginative, fun, game system. Crazy fun!

  16. ellen beck says

    I like the morion sensing and that you can play against other people if you choose to. It looks like a great game.

  17. says

    Playmation uses today’s technology—smart toys, wearables, wireless technology, motion sensors, and more—to create a unique experience in which toys interact not only with the kids who play with them, but with each other.

  18. Charriess says

    The Playmation Marvel Avengers Gamma Gear was our family’s pick! Thank you for the opportunity to enter! Good Luck Everyone!

  19. Patrycja Chudziak says

    The repulsor gear is my favorite because I know my son would love it the best! He loves to dress up in superhero costumes almost daily, Halloween or not lol and any extra superhero gear he gets to wear..the better! He’s been begging for the Playmation for Christmas.

  20. Robby Rob says

    i love this! great characters, looks like a fun game, and luckily….you need more than just your thumbs to play it! burn that energy!

  21. Natalie Brown says

    My favorite is that you can shop on-line for the items at Toys R Us. I really like the Playmation Marvel Avengers Black Widow figure. So cool it’s a woman!

  24. says

    I like how interactive it is! The kids can have fun, and can make there own power ups, and match ups. Every kid loves strapping toys on, and acting like there favorite character!

  25. Rebecca Orr says

    I like that you can get other Smart Figures besides the ones that come with the Starter Pack. I also like that you can track your battles. My son would really enjoy this. Thanks for the chance.

    I like that this is not a typical video game, where the kids are just sitting there. They are active while playing this!

  29. Wendy Caddy says

    I love the wearable gear, and how you physically interact instead of just sitting. I also like that it is expandable. I know my grandkids would like this.

  30. Mike S. says

    Looks like it could be a really fun toy! I like that it doesn’t require the purchase of a $300+ game console in order to play. Thanks for the giveaway! Fingers crossed…

  31. amy williams says

    I love that its interactive because my boys love video games but they are sitting around this would be so much fun.

  32. DeAnna Keller says

    I like that you can go on missions and fight villains all over the globe. Explore battlegrounds, each with their own missions. Compete with, or against other recruits in multiplayer modes.

  33. wen budro says

    I like the Iron Man the most and that you can have continuing missions. My kids would love this toy for sure.

  34. lissa crane says

  37. Deborah Cochran says

    This is perfect for interaction with kids which is so important for hand/eye coordination (plus looks super fun to play with even for Mom and Dad!)

  38. Julie Matek says

    I love that playmation is an entirely new play system, Playmation takes the best digital play experiences and puts the player in the center of the story – in real life. Instead of using toys to create a screen-based experience like “Toys to Life,” Playmation brings the best of digital to real world play, using connected toys, wearables and customized Disney stories to allow kids to play alongside their heroes and heroines in the real world.

  39. says

    I like that it’s so interactive! Kids can get their gaming fix, but can be active at the same time. And it looks like there’s something for everyone!
