I can’t even begin to explain the excitement around here! Avengers Assemble is coming out on DVD, TOMORROW, September 25th, 2012, and we were having an Avengers themed family party. This is probably the best family night that we’ve had so far.
Confession time…most excited family members are my husband, my little sister and I. The little guy is too young to know who the Avengers are and did not see the movie (yet). I actually had to fight hubby’s best friend for who gets to see the movie with him. They just assumed that I wouldn’t “be into it”. Ha!! Wrong!! Hubby and I saw the movie and the second we walked out of the movie theater we couldn’t wait for the DVD release. Guess who already pre-ordered the Blue-Ray?!! ME!
Hubby usually doesn’t like going shopping with me. This time, it was different. We were going to play with the Avengers Augmented Reality App! Unfortunately, my WalMart didn’t have the trigger points for the app done on time and he didn’t get to go with me, he had to work. (It’s ok, he can go with me on his next day off and play.) My best friend actually went with me to play with the app and shop. Here is all the fun you can have with this app:
You can find these giant “posters” on the end cap in Toys, Apparel and Halloween. These particular two were in the toy department. Open you Avengers Augmented Reality app and select “take a quiz”. Then point the phone to the poster and three question will pop up. You can answer the 3 questions for every character poster and then it will reveal which character you are. I’m Iron Man!
You can also find the app trigger points on MarketSide Pizza at Walmart Deli. Just point your phone to the pizza box with the Avengers character on it and see what happens!!
The little guy got himself a little something too. It was actually a toss up between Lego set for hubby or an action figure for the little guy. The little guy won because he is louder…and so cute!

For the party, I made:
~Captain America’s shield mini cupcake tray
French Vanilla Cupcakes with Buttercream Frosting
Spinach Parmesan Dip
(Recipe will be shared in a separate post)
~Iron Man Pizza
MarketSide 5-Cheese Pizza
I had a little help making the pizza:
We had a lot of fun and the food was delicious! We also printed the masks from the Avengers WalMart page. You can download and print the masks here, color them and have fun. We had a little too much fun, I forgot to take the pictures of the masks…oops!
The next day, after the party, we got a surprise in the mail. The new Avengers Graphic Novel! How many husbands get to hear “Honey, I got a new comic book, want to read?!” That lucky dog!
This is new adventure of the Avengers. Captain America, Iron Man and Thor set out to find Hulk. While they go their separate ways to find Hulk, they encounter Loki’s allies. Loki is determined to break apart the Avengers by any means. I will not be giving away the ending because you should read it! You can find this new, limited edition, graphic novel in the The Avengers Blu-Ray/DVD/Graphic Novel Combo Pack from Walmart and its only $24.95. This is an awesome price for this kind of a combo pack, especially since the Blue-Ray alone is $24.95.
