*We received these products from Hasbro in exchange for a review. All opinions expressed are our own.
My boys love Star Wars. Ok, Buddy loves Star Wars and if he can have anything related to it, he’s a happy camper. When we got the Hasbro Star Wars for review he was pretty stoked! Doodle got Angry Birds Jenga from his aunt from Christmas it looked like we were going to start a toy closet with all things Star Wars!
One thing about these Hasbro games is you get to put some of it together yourself. the boys had to add stickers to the Millenium Falcon and build the stand. I have this thing about putting stickers on with no bubbles and got to teach my son how to do it. lol I know, it’s one of my “things”. Ask my coworkers from Menards. =)
The boys got it together and they started playing. It’s a super easy game to play, but something I had them do in another room because quite honestly, it’s one of those things that has the ability to make you crazy if you’re concentrating. lol
So, to play the game, you try to knock down the pigs as well as land in the cockpit. The boys dig it because they keep trying to get the balls into the cockpit. They wanted to hit the enemy pigs, but for them, the high achievement was making the ball go in, in such a way it rolled into the cockpit. I love how kids give themselves their own challenges in games!
We also got a StormTrooper Pig Foam Flyer. lol The kids’ fascination with all things Angry Birds never ceases to amaze me! My Doodle loves this crazy “ball”. We’ve had to keep it up out of the puppy’s sight because she would destroy this thing. So, basically it goes with him everywhere. He’s always tossing it around. He wanted to use it for baseball practice and I nixed that idea pretty dang quickly. =)
If you see above, you can also unlock content in the Angry Birds Star Wars app. Have your kids (or you) played that game? Buddy plays it simply to hear the Angry Bird Darth Vader laughing at the end. He plays that thing over and over and over. It’s amusing for the first few minutes, but then…not so much. HA! The boys were pretty dang happy to be able to get a new bird.
Doodle got the Angry Birds Star Wars Jenga from his Aunt Liz for Christmas and I just know Buddy will want the AT-AT for his birthday next month! Our house is being overrun by Angry Birds Star Wars games! lol Neither of my boys has a problem with that. As long as they’re enjoying themselves, I’m a happy camper!
