We’ve been watching the commercials and hearing all about Disney’s PLAYMATION, and it’s finally here! Duracell, Toys“R”Us, Hasbro and Disney teamed up to send us our very own Marvel Avengers Starter Pack and some Toys”R”Us gift cards to buy some extra Playmation toys.
After much anticipation, the wait for Disney’s PLAYMATION is finally OVER! This is truly one of the most innovative experiences, PLAYMATION combines technology and action into a fun game that is gonna be a huge hit this holiday season. PLAYMATION uses wearable technology that puts your child in the center of the action, they’re teaming up with Marvel’s Avengers to help them battle against Ultron’s armies!
Dreamed up by a team of technologists, Imagineers and storytellers from across The Walt Disney Company, Playmation is the culmination of extensive research into the world of play, highlighting the opportunity for a new type of experience that combines digital technology and physical, real-world play. The groundbreaking system of connected toys and wearables fuses technology and digital storytelling to create a completely new category of play, the new toy/game hybrid aims to inspire both kids and parents to get active and creative at playtime. – Disney Consumer Products
The starter set comes with the wearable repulsor, which has motion sensor technology and is worn on the arm, two power activator bases, and two smart action figures – Captain America and Iron Skull. It’s an easy set up to get started, put in your Duracell batteries (requires 12 total) and power up each device. Once you put on the wearable repulsor, you receive instructions of your mission and you’re ready to battle!
What I love about Disney’s PLAYMATION is the way that it changes gaming. Most kids sit sedentary and have their faces in some sort of gaming system, computer, or tablet when they play. PLAYMATION puts players into the battle, physically! You have to be pretty active for this, your told to move from side to side, jump, duck, roll, punch and all sorts of things to blast your enemy, and evade getting hit!

This is my 8 year old son, he truly enjoyed playing!
Disney’s PLAYMATION is available now at Toys”R”Us, pick up a starter pack for the family, or maybe keep it in mind for holiday gifting! Don’t forget the Duracell Batteries, they are not included in the box so pick up some while you’re there. I would recommend this game for ages 6 – 12, be sure to get some extra gear and sync together to add more players! We’re going to get Hulk, Iron Man, Falcon, a couple of Ultron villains, and one more wearable arm repulsor! Star Wars and Frozen characters are coming soon!
