Playmation: The Next Step in the Evolution Of Play

This post is brought to you by Disney.

Ready for the next step in play? How about something that merges imagination, technology and physical play?

i-XmsG9WL-LPlaymation utilizes wearable technology to inspire imaginative play. Starting with Marvel’s Avengers, this groundbreaking system will have kids running, jumping and more as they become their favorite superhero.

The Avengers Starter Pack includes two Power Activators, two Smart Figures and the Iron Man Repulsor Gear. The Repulsor Gear connects with the Power Activators and Smart Figures to take you on your adventures through the Marvel Universe.

Best of all, an internet connection is not needed. That means the play can follow everyone outside!

The AvengersNet app will allow you to register your Avenger Gear to see your progress, explore additional locations and characters, and get access to new missions.

During our visit to D23 EXPO we had a chance to view a sneak peak of Playmation in action. It’s fun. It’s active. It’s perfect for play indoors or out. It’s great for playing by yourself or with a friend. And you get to pretend you’re Iron Man. How cool is that? IMG_4253

The Playmation Marvel’s Avengers Starter Pack is available for preorder now and will be released on October 4, 2015. Live Playmation demos are available at select Disney Stores.

Marvel won’t be your only opportunity to experience the magic of Playmation. Star Wars and Disney Frozen systems are already in development, with a 2016 launch planned for Star Wars and a 2017 launch planned for Frozen.
