The Green Lantern!

When I was a kid, I loved super hero's. Superman, Spiderman, The Hulk, The Green Lantern. Yes, the Green Lantern was a cool one, especially if you like the color green. I can't wait to see the movie coming out, and to no surprise, Mattel has come out with some very cool toys!

I gave this one to my 4 year old boy and he said, "Papa, he has a big hand." Amazing how observant 4 year olds are. Funny how he started pounding things with it. I think it was the barbaric caveman in him coming out.

I must say, that my favorite Green Lantern toy was this disc shooter. I had to demo it for my boy to show him how it worked. At first he was a little unsure due to the flashing colors and sounds. But after I loaded it and started shooting things in his room down with the discs he had to have it! He pointed it at me and wanted to fire, but luckily I told him to only aim at his toys.
We spent at least an hour playing with this toy, taking turns knocking down targets and shooting things down. A very good boy thing to do. If he was a bit older, I would get two of these and have a shoot out. We would have to do it on the sly so my wife wouldn't find out though. Good times!

"I wrote this review while participating in a blog tour by Dad Central Consulting on behalf of Mattel and received Green Lantern toys to facilitate my review and a promotional item to thank me for taking the time to participate.
