Hero World™ DC Super Friends™ Voice Comm™ Batwing

The Hero World DC Super Friends Voice Comm Batwing brings the excitement of the movies to kids’ imaginations.

The speech will come out of each product separately for true “conversing.” Conversations are activated through either the button on the Batwing or the figure. The Batwing is equipped with motion sensors to activate certain motion-based phrases, which a figure can respond to if clipped into the Batwing. Vehicle can sense landing and taking off, pitch right, left, forward and backward. It also has an LED search light that lights up when certain motions are detected.

Hero World™ DC Super Friends™ Voice Comm™ Basic Figure Assortment

The new Hero World DC Super Friends Basic Voice Comm assortment brings innovation to action figures. With on-board speech technology and creative scripting, each figure says hundreds of phrases that make the figures “magically” communicate. Fully integrated electronics enable the figures to say a phrase with a push of a button. When kids press the button on another figure, they respond and make it sound like the figures are really talking to each other. When kids plug a figure into the drivers/pilot seat of a vehicle, magical conversation is unlocked: the vehicles know who the character is, allowing for an individual interaction between the character and vehicle. Assortment features Batman, Superman, Green Lantern and The Joker (Each Sold Separately). Each figure comes with a backpack, and a hand tool/play piece. Requires 3 “button cell” batteries, included.

The car is equipped with motion sensors to activate certain motion-based phrases, which a figure can respond to if clipped into the car. It also has a two LED police siren rack on top that lights up when certain motions are detected. The car has an actionator on hood that enables the front bumper bars to pop-out like a battering ram.

CONTEST OVER: appBlaster Giveaway

As many people already know, the appBlaster has already been introduced here at zoolert.com, but thanks to Spin Master we have been able to get our hands on this cool new blaster to review for all of our fellow zoolert fans! The appBalster is for kids ages 8 and up and is a great accessory of any iPod or iPhone. The appBlaster set comes with one appBlaster with a removable stock, one iPod touch insert plate, one iPhone insert plate, one mounting bracket, and one instruction manual. The set is $19.99 MSRP and the appBlaster is compatible with any iPhone 4, iPhone 3GS, and iPod Touch 4th gen.

Here I will not get too much into the details of the set because we have already talked about the set in a separate blog, but instead I will be talking more about the pros and cons of this toy. First let’s start off with the cons. The appBlaster App does get little annoying because a pop up appears telling you to purchase other apps, you can always (X) out of the App but I find it to be annoying. The appBlaster technically does not have a reloading system, what you have to do is quickly tilt back the gun to reload, this does bug me a little when I am shooting aliens all around me. Other than those minor problems I have with the gun I do find it to be a lot of fun especially when you challenge your friends to see who can receive a higher score! The appBlaster comes with a lot of accessories and I never had to worry about the iPhone falling out of the case because it was tightly locked inside of the appBlaster case. The appBlaster also has a cool and unique twist that makes this gun fun and addicting. The appBlaster has 360 viewing so you can turn around anywhere you would like and you can still use the appBlaster, but my favorite part about the gun is the background you play the game on. The appBlaster uses the environment you are playing in as the background, so anytime you are in your house and you use the appBlaster your house will be used as the background of the game. This makes it cool to see your couch, bed or any room in the house turn into an infested alien hive! The AppBlaster is a cool new Accessory that turns an ordinary shooting game into a fun survival shooting game for any kid!

Mega Blocks Fire Patrol Rescue Hands On Review

Mega blocks has come up with another “add on” set to the Block Squad themed Mega Blocks. The Fire Patrol Rescue squad is a great addition to any Mega Blocks Fire Station squad. This set comes with two mini figures and two vehicles. Each mini figure can have their own vehicle to ride around in; this will make it more fun to play because you can use both mini figures! The set is recommended for kids ages 5 and up and comes with 190 Mega Block pieces. Over the course of the year I have seen and received a couple of Mega Blocks sets. These sets are a little difficult to build at first, and the more complex Mega Blocks pieces can be a pain to put in, but once you finish your Mega Block set they are always full of great detail and they are always fun to decorate or play with. The Fire Patrol Rescue set is one of the smaller sets you can purchase to help increase your Mega Block Squad team, but even though these sets are small they never lack detail. Overall the set is pretty simple to build and the set has a lot of great features like the 360 degree hose, the storage container in your truck, and the movable wheels. Any block squad team can be increased to help make a safer Mega Block city and the new Fire Patrol Rescue squad is a great addition to any block squad rescue team!

You can purchase the Mega Blocks Fire Patrol Rescue at Amazon
