UPDATE: The giveaway is over, but there’s some awesome toys being reviewed below.

Angry Birds + Star Wars + Generous offer from Hasbro = This post of awesomeness!

A few weeks back, I was contacted by Hasbro. They asked me if I would like to review some of their toys. I said, “Sure!”.  So, yesterday, I got a box in the mail with some Angry Birds Star Wars stuff in it. I was told they were sending something and that I could sponsor a giveaway if I wanted. I had no idea what was in the box before filming this opening.

 

(Link doesn’t work but it doesn’t matter because you are here!)

As you can see there was some pretty neat stuff in the box. I was originally going to do one video showing the games and then cutting to them being put together etc. But my son, who loves watching videos of toy reviews, had other ideas. That’s why we decided to go with multiple videos. One for each of the items in the box.

Chewbacca Foam Flyer ~$9.99 Ages 5 and up

The Foam Flyer reminded me of an old 80’s toy MadBalls. My son loves it. He has slept with it two nights in a row. It even beat out his Woody doll…which is kind of a big deal around here.

Next up on the plate:

The Millennium Falcon Bounce Game ~ $19.99 Ages 8 and up

TL;DR – This game has some issues. The gameplay is fine, but it wasn’t designed to go back in the box very well. Fun to play, for sure. The kids LOVED it….but OCD daddy would have preferred it fit back in the box without having to partially dismantle it.

And last but certainly not least:

AT-AT Attack Battle Game ~ $39.99 Ages 5 and up

TL; DR – This game was a blast. Yes, it takes awhile to set up. But my son loved it so much, he snuck it into his room to play with. Yes, packaging was again an issue, but really, this game is enough fun, I’m willing to overlook it.

Now…you made it ALL this way. Let’s get to the fun stuff!

Update: The giveaway is over! Thanks to everyone who entered.

    Why we need this?..solely because my handsome 10 year old “step” son is a Star Wars FANATIC! We are talking dressed head to toe in it, including his under roo’s. I purchased him the starting set to the Angry Birds Star Wars this past Christmas, I never received a hug so huge in all my life! So, please please pick me so I can see his little face light up! 🙂

    I love what Hasbro has been doing for the last 30 years. I will buy almost anything with Star Wars in the title. It’s great having kids, now I have an excuse to buy it without angering my wife. Sounds like a fun game & toys

    Because it’s something we would all play together as a family. All of us love Angry Birds, and we are all Star Wars fans! My hubby even has his toys from the original trilogy that he got when he was 7 or 8! This game would be a great addition to our Angry Birds and Star Wars collections!

    My boys are obsessed with Angry Birds. They are 2 and 4 and know their way around my iPhone better than I do!

    My son is a huge Angry Birds fanatic and a huge Star Wars fanatic, and when he found out they combined the two, well, he was over the moon! He has actually been asking for the AT AT Attack Battle game since January.

    I think you already know that I’m kinda retarded when it comes to Star Wars. I wrote a post about that and got blasted and unfollowed on Twitter for my unPC talk. Whatever. My eight-year-old son agrees. Why? Because I call Star Wars the “first movie,” when really, it’s like the fourth. Little does he know that back in 1977, I stood in a line that wrapped around the block, with all of the other kids in bell bottoms. I was THERE. Back when people could smoke in the movie theater! I know the main characters. I know Jar Jar Binks. I admit, he’s kinda cute. I know die-hard fans are like what a loser. OK, so I may be retarded and a loser when it comes to Star Wars trivia and plot specifics. However, my son is in the middle of building the Lego Death Star AND the Lego Millenium Falcon. He’s a Star Wars genius. One of his blankets is an original Star Wars blanket that my husband saved. Classic. Even if I’m not a Star Wars smarty pants, I can shell out the cash for the goods. Plus we just watched Fanboys last weekend. I’m not kidding. Oh and my husband wants the entire Star Wars set on Blu-Ray for Father’s Day, “so that we can watch as a family.” Did you know that it’s half off on Amazon? And don’t get me started on Angry Birds. I have the Star Wars Angry Birds app on my phone JUST for my son. How’s that for being a cool (but retarded) Mom?

    If you pick me, I can show all the boys in my family what a cool Mom I am. Plus, we need more spiky things on the floor to trip over. Win win.

    Oh and May the 4th be with you.

    XO,
    Pippi

      Dear Lord…he’s 19 months already! (Makes sense, seeing as he was born shortly after my son.) But still, wow time flies doesn’t it??

    My son (10) loves, loves, LOVES anything Star Wars or Angry Birds – which let’s be honest, who doesn’t?! I’ll tell you who. My 4yr old girl. I’ve been trying SO hard to get her into Star Wars. She enjoys playing Angry Birds (any of them) on my phone, and has just recently started asking about characters. I think a game like this would bring her to the dark side (aka: nerdville).
    Thanks for posting this! I loved your videos. You guys were both adorable!

    On a completely unrelated to this giveaway note; I LOVE that you’re trying to map out men’s rooms with changing tables in them. I’m very tempted to start checking them out in the Portland/Vancouver area to add to your list. Or at the very least, asking men as they come out of the restroom…

    Hmm… let’s see, because Angry Birds Star Wars is awesome and I would love to have something to play with when my wife says, “lets put our phones away for a while and have some family time.”
