A room full of kids, pizza and a movie! #MarvelAvengersWMT

What do you get when you take 7 hungry kids, 2 fresh ready-to-bake Marketplace pizzas, the hottest just-released movie and enough candy to fill the bags of a hundred neighborhood trick-or-treaters? You get a rockin' good time. That's what you get.

My crew was so excited to see The Avengers. And by "so excited" I mean "MOM! MOM! MOM! The Avengers is out on DVD - will you PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE buy it NOW NOW NOW?!?!" So what's a Mom to do? I had to buy the movie. And we asked a whole bunch of the kids' friends over to watch it with us.

And to make shopping for our DVD even more exciting, Walmart and Marvel teamed up to create an interactive Super Hero app! I have got to tell you, this is one of the coolest things I've seen. By using the app and finding the Avengers Augmented Reality App "trigger points" throughout Walmart, you really can have a fun time shopping!

Let me show you what I mean...

First we downloaded this app (which, by the way is available for both IPhones and Androids)...


Then, as soon as we got to Walmart, we launched the app...so cool...this is the homescreen...


And you can do the coolest stuff with it! While you're walking through Walmart, you can use posters that are spread throughout the store (the "trigger points") to activate different parts of the app! For example, posters like this...


...seem to come to life when you scan them with your phone or tablet. You can answer 9 questions (3 at each of 3 different posters) and find out which Avenger you are (complete with a photo!). Seriously, so cool. Tyler was Thor...the photo had trouble saving to my phone, but I'm going to try it again with the other kids...(once you've gone through it at the store, you can use it over and over again without needing the posters for activation).

After playing with the app for a while, and finishing all of our questions, we grabbed our movie...we chose The Avengers Blu-Ray/DVD/Graphic Novel Combo Pack because I knew my boys would just flip over the comic book that was included. And really, how can you go wrong? A movie and a graphic novel??? Awesome.


Then we headed over to the deli to grab our Marketfresh pizzas...we chose a 5-cheese AND a pepperoni...


We grabbed a few more snacks and things we needed and headed home to start the par-tay!


We set up everything we needed for dinner and threw the pizzas in the oven...


We definitely needed some Avengers cups for our beverages...


All the kids had a great time...


Who likes the pizza??? They all do!




When everyone was done eating, the kids filled their bags with candy and we headed to the family room to watch the movie...



The movie was AWESOME!!! And the kids had the best time! I will definitely be doing this again...

And remember how I mentioned that there were some really neat features of the Super Hero AR app? Here's the coolest (in my opinion)...


Oh yeah...you see that? That's my kitchen table...in my kitchen...and the whole city is sitting on top of my pizza box...uh huh...you heard me...wanna see more? Check out my entire shop here on Google+ to see the rest of the amazing features this app has to offer...so cool.

Pretty cool, huh? 

Are you a Marvel fan? Are you dying to see, or have you seen The Avengers? If you head out to buy the movie...I highly suggest you download the Super Hero AR app and get your movie at Walmart...especially if you have kids...they will get a huge kick out of it. And some Walmarts are even having special Avengers Character Appearances tomorrow, September 29! Woo hoo!

Keep up with Marvel here:
