Did you know that May the Fourth (…be with you…) is international Star Wars Day? Hasbro has several ways to help you and your family celebrate…and some cool new Star Wars Toys!
Hasbro sent me two of their newest games to review: ANGRY BIRDS STAR WARS® MILLENNIUM FALCON BOUNCE GAME and ANGRY BIRDS STAR WARS® FOAM FLYERS ~ Luke Skywalker. When my son saw the box arrived… he knew something cool was inside (as there was a very fun Angry Birds sticker on the outside).
We love playing games with our kids! The addition of the ANGRY BIRDS STAR WARS® MILLENNIUM FALCON BOUNCE GAME and ANGRY BIRDS STAR WARS® FOAM FLYERS is greatly appreciated by our children (even mom and dad had fun playing).
Logan, Kira and Dad had fun tossing around the Luke Skywalker foam flyer. What they liked about tossing the foam flyer was watching the fun Angry Bird character fly across the room. Yes, it’s just a ball… but kids will love it because of the funny characters. It will help encourage kids to throw (and hopefully increase accuracy of aiming and gross motor skills).
We all enjoyed playing the ANGRY BIRDS STAR WARS® MILLENNIUM FALCON BOUNCE GAME. Based on the fun Angry Birds app that you can play on your phone, iPod, etc… kids and adults can play together and knock down the enemy pigs! Though my kids are a little young for the game, they had fun rolling and bouncing the ball. They both were able to knock down a few pigs. My husband was AMAZING at the game. He bounced the ball into the cockpit numerous times (unfair since he used to play basketball… hehehe). According to the rules you get 1,000 points for knocking down a pig, 3,000 points for getting the “bird” ball into the center of the Millennium Falcon, and 5,000 points for landing in the cockpit (please note that the cockpit doesn’t LOCK into place and may fall off when the ball enters the chamber)… first player to 30,000 WINS! When playing with our kids we changed the points to 1, 3, and 5.
