Today, Disney introduced the world to Playmation, a new system of toys and wearables that use smart technology. The first system in development will be Playmation Marvel’s Avengers. It is slated to hit store shelves in October 2015. When launched, the Playmation Marvel’s Avengers Starter Pack will have five connected toys to include the following:
- Avenger Gear (Repulsor)
- Power Activators
- Smart Figures – a Super Hero (Captain America) and a Super Villain (Iron Skull).
To play, you attach the Repulsor Gear onto your arm (see above) and follow the instructions from JARVIS as he provides a nice tutorial for you on how to control your newly acquired gear. There will be other Playmation Marvel’s Avengers toys that will be available to add-on to your collection as time moves on. Another key item that will be available at launch will be the AvengersNet app. You can use this app to register your Avenger Gear and it will allow you to see your progress, get new missions or even take on Marvel Super Villains including Ultron, Iron Skull and Loki.
Star Wars and Disney’s Frozen systems are currently in development for 2016 and 2017. This seems like a great set of toys and we can’t wait to see how it progresses!
