LEGO GAMES CITY ALARM
This exciting game for 2-4 sends players on a chase through the streets of LEGO City! Once the board is built (247 pieces), thieves must steal the money without setting off the alarm while the police attempt to catch up with them and put them all in jail. Every roll of the dice changes to chase.
THE AVENGERS IRON MAN TRI-POWER REPULSOR
Young superheros will be able to fend off boredom with his Iron Man Repulsor! The gauntlet attaches to the arm with two straps and the Repulsor attaches to the palm. The gauntlet launches two missiles, while kids can activate blast sounds and pulse lights as they imagine themselves defending the universe as the armored Avenger.
CRAYOLA OUTDOOR COLORED BUBBLES
These are not your ordinary clear soapy bubbles. Because they are colorful, they will leave temporary colorful marks on skin, clothing and intended outdoor surfaces. While kids are enjoying an afternoon of messy outdoor fun, moms can have peace of mind knowing the bubbles are designed to clean up. Color rubs off skin, can be laundered from clothing and will spray away from most outdoor surfaces like driveways and sidewalks with a garden hose. Before kids put on their play clothes and head outside, there are helpful tips at Crayola.com to get ready to play and clean up.
