Based on the #1 New York Times best-selling book of the same name, HEAVEN IS FOR REAL brings to the screen the true story of a small-town father who must find the courage and conviction to share his son’s extraordinary, life-changing experience with the world. The film stars Academy Award® nominee and Emmy® award winning actor Greg Kinnear as Todd Burpo and co-stars Kelly Reilly as Sonja Burpo, the real-life couple whose son Colton (newcomer Connor Corum) claims to have visited Heaven during a near death experience. Colton recounts the details of his amazing journey with childlike innocence and speaks matter-of-factly about things that happened before his birth … things he couldn’t possibly know. Todd and his family are then challenged to examine the meaning from this remarkable event.

The Marvels Super Heroes~> The Amazing Spider-Man 2 #MiHasbroMarvel

Hello All,

Marvel is at it again, this Spring they will be releasing two brand new Superhero films. Are the kids excited yet? We certainly are excited and waiting patiently to see the  movie since we missed the pre-screening of Captain America. We have been excited from the very beginning when we saw the previews of  The Amazing Spider-Man 2. We were a little impatient but a little distraction made us very happy to be a part of an opportunity whereby we received two toys from the new Marvel Superhero toy line of our choice. One of our favorite super hero is Spider-Man. The funny part is that both my daughter and her best friend jumped on the toys before my little boys had the chance to check out the new toys.


It is fantastic that Spider-Man is swinging back into theaters on May 2, 2014, in The Amazing Spider-Man 2. In this movie, the web-slinging super hero will square off against a powerful new villain, Electro. Hasbro continues to produced new toys out for their new movie. The Amazing Spider-Man sequel’s creates excitement with the new Spider Man Electronic Mask  for Ages: 5 & up  and Hasbro's always amazes us by providing imaginative fun at an affordable prices, the approximate retail price is $19.99 and is available this Spring 2014. The SPIDER VISION Electronic Mask lets kids pretend to have SPIDER-MAN’S SPIDEY SENSE, and spot villains using innovative Mircoprism FIRE VISION technology. This toy includes two discs which illuminate once activated by the SPIDER VISION Mask. It sure is beautiful how it illuminates in the night time.

 SPIDER-MAN Hasbro captures the sequel’s excitement with the new SPIDER-STRIKE technology,
which lets the action figures activate special features on accessories and vehicles. In the role-playing realm, kids can help thwart evil with new ways to sling webs and imagine exciting powers for their superheroes!

We also received Marvel Amazing Spider-Man 2 Spider Strike Web Wing Spider-Man Figure    is for ages 5 and up and approximate retail price is $9.99  and is available in stores this Spring 2014.
This acrobatic Spider-Man figure has a new weapon in the battle against evil: his Web Wing! Connect the backpack to his back for an instant attack, and watch as the backpack deploys dual wings! Amp up the spider-striking action with your hard-charging Spider-Man figure and his Web Wing!

 The girls sure had some fun putting on Spider Man backpack with Web Wing. They were super excited that Spider-Man have added protection although he is capable of protecting himself and others in his daily battle. It is so fascinating to see that the girls are so much into the Marvel Super Heroes as much as the boys are. They are about saving the world from disasters and keeping peace. I was really surprised to hear that one of their topic was fighting hunger!

It surely was loads of fun to get pictures of the girls but was not an easy task as they were like Spider-Man swinging all over the place. We sure hope you have as much fun as they did, which is your favorite Marvel Super Hero? Are you ready for The Amazing Spider-Man sequel? Come on over and visit Hasbro website for more information on the new products at amazing prices. They are great gifts for any reason!!
