We recently went to see Star Wars - The Phantom Menace in 3D (Episode One). This was the first Star Wars movie for my children and my son loved it. My daughter was not impressed but that's because she's a girly girl. I grew up watching the original Star Wars and was so glad to see my son take an interest.
When I was given an opportunity to review the new Star Wars Fighter Pods I jumped at the chance because my son talks often about having a Star Wars themed birthday party. I made a big deal about the mail man coming and being that I've been blogging for over 2 years they know that the mail man brings them fun toys to play with. My son looked at the Star Wars Fighter Pods and said "Yay I love these - Riley has these". Here I thought I was introducing these new toys and instead he had already been playing with them at his buddies house down the street! Even still, he ripped opened the package and played with them straight away and couldn't wait to take them down the street to his friends house.
These Fighter Pods are miniature collectible versions of the Star Wars characters from all six “Star Wars” films and “The Clone Wars” animated series. The miniature characters come with battle pods that are used to knock down as many of your opponent’s figures as possible by spinning, launching or rolling the pods into battle. More than 100 Star Wars Fighter Pods figures are available so kids can collect them, set them up and knock them down in head-to-head battling play. Whether challenging neighbors to epic battles in the driveway or setting up a galaxy of characters at the park, Star Wars We love that the fighter pods are portable and can be taken on our road trips. My son and his friend have a great time coming up with mock battles. Toys that nurture endless house of creative play is a good thing in our household!
The Star Wars Fighter Pods retail from $2.99 – $14.99 and you can purchase it online at the Hasbro website or on Amazon. Be sure to check out the Where to buy page to see all of the retailers that carry them.
