I grew up in a time when kids dressed up as their favourite Marvel superheroes. It was a time when we thought we were superheroes! My brother and I even had superhero underoos! My brother would probably not appreciate me posting a pic of us in our superhero underoos! I loved my Wonder Woman underoos! My brother had Spiderman underoos! Ahhh! Nostalgia!
Seriously, what kid in our vintage didn’t love pretending to be Batman or Superman? Fighting crime and saving the world were part of our creative play time, right?
Times haven’t changed that much, because decades later, our own kids are doing the same. Marvel superheroes will always be a big part of kids’ lives. The iconic Hulk, Captain America and all our other favourites will continue to captivate us and our kids.
MARVEL SUPER HERO MASHERS!
Though Little One is a ballerina-fairy-princess kind of girl, she’s also big into her Marvel superheroes. She loves playing superheroes with her friends. Two years ago, my friend’s sons got Little One interested in old SPIDER-MAN cartoons! I was brought back to my childhood self and a time when I used to rush home at lunch to catch part of the cartoon during lunch break and then inhale my lunch and get back to school!
How fun is this?
Little One and her friends were playing with their superhero action figures and Little One came up with this: SPIDEY-HULKMAN! It’s actually The Hulk with SPIDERMAN’s head, one hand and feet. My five year old daughter’s reasoning is that her superhero needs the strength and mass of the Hulk, coupled with one of Spidey’s hands (so that he can shoot webs) and Spidey’s feet so he can be agile and climb buildings. It was really interesting to hear her reasoning for her choices. Incidentally, she didn’t use the words “agile, mass, or coupled with”. 😉
Little One really enjoys playing with her action figures and it’s quite endearing to see her and her friends tap into their creative play side! I’m telling you…HOURS of fun! The combinations are limitless when you can swap out different pieces and create a new superhero each time! So much fun (even for the parents)! Note: These make great birthday presents!!
