May the Fourth Be With You (Giveaway)

It still cracks me up that May 4th is Star Wars Day! I don't know how I missed understanding that for so many years! To celebrate Star Wars Day our family has been watching one movie a weekend for the past 5 weeks with Return of the Jedi to be our last movie this weekend.

Another way we're celebrating is with Hasbro's new Angry Bird Star Wars AT-AT Battle Attack Game and Angry Birds Star Ward Foam Flyers toys.

We're big fans of Angry Birds here and my kids have been known to make buildings with their cheese cubes, beans and pretzels to knock down.

I think I like the toys better.

Both boys played with these all day when they came in. This is the AT-AT Battle Attack Game.

(Approximate retail price: $39.99; Ages: 5 & up. Available: Now)
Stack, launch, and destroy with the AT-AT ATTACK BATTLE GAME, which includes 21 blocks to create the signature AT-AT, a LIGHTSABER LAUNCHER and 12 ANGRY BIRDS STAR WARS figures — including two that are exclusive to this set! Players can also unlock ANGRY BIRDS STAR WARS in-app content with a special code in each pack. 

My sons are 6 and 3 and both had a blast. We had to build on the box because it was a little hard to get it to stand on carpet. They were able to get it to stand far better than I was able to do it! 

There was a bit of a learning curve with them understanding that it didn't have to be built exactly like the picture and instructions showed...but once they understood that...the battle was on!!

I like how the birds attach to the launcher. This is better than the previous Angry Birds games we've had where the bird just sits in the launcher and hopefully stays in it while you aim.

The birds are a little small so I don't let the 3 year old play by himself, but they really love them. They fought over who was Darth Vader and who was Han Solo.

The foam flyers are also available now.

(Approximate retail price: $9.99; Ages: 5 & up. Available: Now)
Toss around these 3.5-inch soft foam, iconic characters for a new way to play ANGRY BIRDS STAR WARS! Available in LUKE SKYWALKER, CHEWBACCA, DARTH VADER and STORMTROOPER. Each sold separately.

We were sent Darth Vader to play with.  However, there isn't a picture because Darth is in time out for flying toward Momma's head. Neither boy claimed the deed, so the toy got the punishment. It's a soft foam and kinda feels like a squeeze stress toy. 

They keep walking by it on the "time out" shelf and telling him "We'll see you soon Darth." I think I'm going to have to get more of them just so we don't end up having fights over them!
