Making your home an evil lair to host your super heroes gives you lots of chances to use your imagination. Have big screens or boards with giant maps on them and be sure to mark your targets of your evil plans. You can dress as an evil genius to give your super hero guests something to talk about. Start a discussion about what super hero would have the best powers to stop your evil plans. Have opulent foods, or snacks that go on all night. Be sure to have stuff for the kids too, like candies, or toys, or even arts and crafts. Maybe you would rather make it fairies and magic with flowers, butterflies, and mushrooms. Means that your guests can be fairies and dwarves or trolls who bring stories of their favorite movies or book of magic or fairies. A magician to entertain your guests would make your party very memorable to you and your guests for years to come.

In The Bonus Mission every player has the single shot unless they score a hit so that they continue on the same turn until they miss. You can also use advanced weapons in this type of game. While in the Advanced Mission every ship has special weapons and two recon planes, however the use of recon planes will defeat you.

 

The other most dominating feature of the game is that it is free from cheating i.e. one can not cheat the other player in this game and this is the excellent thing.

If your child is into gaming console games, consider Skylanders: Spyro’s Adventure game. It is available for Nintendo Wii, Playstation 3, Xbox 360, Nintendo 3DS and PC systems and comes in a variety of bundles and is available for different prices. This game was released earlier this fall. The Skylanders: Spyro’s Adventure is an action-adventure video game designed for younger players and is a spin-off from the Spyro set of video games. It is the first in the Skylanders series of video games. There are different challenges and games hidden throughout Skylands. Spyro’s Adventure has 30 different physical action figures that can be synched with the video game console and allows for 2D or 3D gaming, bringing the Skylandes: Spyro’s Adventure game to life. Each action figure has a different special power and level of skill. This Adventure action figures each come with a unique web code so you can play more online.

Skylanders are mythical creatures that battle invaders that try to come to the Skylands, which is their homeland. The evil KAOS and his gang has frozen and banished the Skylanders to earth. The player is the ‘portal master’ who tries to put the Skylanders back on the Portal of Power to send them back to Skylands forever.  Through the journey of Spyro’s Adventure, you can ward off enemies and solve puzzles.

The three figurines sink with the game with the ‘Portal of Power’ peripheral to go against KAOS and his gang.You can also choose to play it with other people as a team or against each other.

For Nintendo 3DS, Skylanders: Spyro’s Adventure is a different format than the other games and you actually fight floating head, Hectore rather than KAOS. A downfall to the this game, regardless of the other console formats, is that to unlock other levels to the game, you must buy other action figures. Otherwise, you will never actually complete the Skylanders: Spyro’s Adventure challenge. This Action figures sell for about $8 per piece or $20 for a set of three.

One upside is that the portal of the Skylanders: Spyro’s Adventure that holds the action figures into place is wireless. If you just want to play over and over, you can get by with just the three original action figures. Skylanders: Spyro’s Adventure has a plot that is easy and directions are audible so little kids can lay it. Bigger kids will get more out of it because of multiple quests and adventures they can take their warriors through. The other upside is that if your child has some action pieces and one of their friends has different action pieces, they can get together and play it, trading their action figures. This game, depending on its players, can be fun for players of all ages.

The Nerf VORTEX NITRON Blaster is not a typical Nerf gun recommended for kids around 8 years and up. NITRON Blaster has a acceleration trigger that slings a fully automatic round of discs toward a target. It is a brand new Nerf gun and will get the kids fired up if they get this gift during the 2011 holiday season. Nothing says ‘Happy Holidays’ like target practice and this VORTEX NITRON Blaster puts all other Nerf products to shame because it has great features. Plus, it is the most innovative and technologically advanced Nerf gun on the market. Plus, it is a monster in size, at over 2 feet long.

On the Nerf VORTEX NITRON Blaster’s trigger, it can also be squeezed on the bottom half to rev up the motor and pull the top half to launch the discs. This Blaster has a long range for long-distance targets. The Centerfire Tech electronic scope has pulsing lights to help your kids aim at their target. Your kid will be an excellent target shooter with the help of this feature. Plus those discs can fly a long way! Maybe even up to 50 feet.

The gun itself has a magazine that holds 20 discs ready for quick and easy reload. It is spring-loaded and has storage for a second magazine for additional discs so your kid can stay in full action battle with the flinging discs aimed at the target. These additional magazines are sold separately. The Nerf VORTEX NITRON Blaster is fully customizable. It has a Tactical Rail System that works along with other VORTEX and N-Strike Mission Kit accessories which are sold separately.

The Nerf VORTEX NITRON Blaster requires six C batteries and two AAA batteries which are not included. At five pounds, it is a little on the heavier side, but is perfect for bigger kids (or adults that act like big kids). One complaint about the NITRON Blaster is that the discs fly far and shoot out of the barrel very quickly but once they lose their velocity due to their light weight, they can travel off course. The Nerf VORTEX NITRON Blaster may actually be better for indoor, up close and personal battles. Another observation is that the discs spin very fast once they are launched so instead of just hitting the target and dropping, it instead ricochets and you have to find where it landed. The other downfall is that it uses $10 in batteries alone and while the C batteries power the gun, the AAA batteries to power the scope.

Toys R Us offers the Nerf VORTEX NITRON Blaster for $50 and Amazon.com offers it for $39 plus shipping. You can also find this Nerf gun at Target.

The Trash Pack Garbage Truck is one of the hottest toys for the 2011 holiday season. This Garbage Truck, manufactured by Moose Toys, is a mobile storage device for Trashies and their garbage cans. Trashies are repulsive figures that come with a garbage can that pops open. The Trash Pack is a bunch of grimy, gross figurines that obviously have a garbage theme. They are very highly collectible and are so cool with disgusting names.

The Trash Pack Garbage Truck holds up to 10 tiny garbage cans and the tires of the Trash Pack Garbage Truck even has roadkill on them. Your child can take out the trash with the flipper device on the back to dump trash or they can use the wheelie bin launcher to shoot their Trashies flying. That’s where the fun is. It’s great for kids to flick the Trashies off the dumpster and dump them. With the Trash Pack Garbage Truck, you can put Trashies like Sludge Can and Dead Tyre into their garbage cans so they can ride in the truck.

The Trash Pack Garbage Truck comes with two Trashies, Sludge Can and Dead Tyre, but there are hundreds of other little Trashies characters (some glow in the dark) and games to play with them. Trashies are a members of the Trash Pack and are “The Gross Gang in your garbage.” Trashies all have gross names like Germ-Worm and Mucky Maggot. Some of the Trashies are rare and collectible and others are even limited edition characters.

The Trash Pack Garbage Truck is recommended for children ages 5 years and up by the manufacturer but it is targeted for boys ages 5 to 8 years old. One warning is that it the Trash Pack Garbage Truck as well as the Trashies collectibles are hazardous for children under three years old due to choking dangers because of the small pieces.

The Trash Pack Garbage Truck product ranges in price anywhere from $15 to $20. This toy is fun, easy to control and is durable. It is great for young kids and the Trashies are fun to collect. If you are looking for a toy that can provide hours of fun and can get them interested in starting to collect things, the Trash Pack Garbage Truck and the Trashies are great or your child.
