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.

Again to make sure EVERYONE knows the FTC guidelines here: Hasbro has compensated me for this review and giveaway. That having been said, the opinions in this review are mine, and mine alone.
- Allows for creative play
- Recognizable characters
- Lots of action and excitement
- Packaging - The pieces don't fit back in the box when you're through
- Millenium Falcon - made of cardboard and broke after a month
- Takes a long time to set AT-AT pieces up.
