REVIEW: Hands-On with Disney’s Playmation, Marvel Edition

Disney Playmation Starter PackThis Sunday (October 4), Disney and Hasbro officially launch the first wave of Playmation, the inter-connected toy system that promises to ‘flip toys-to-life on its head.’ Usually reserved for describing specific video console games, the ‘toys-to-life’ concept allows players to use real-world toys (usually stationary figures) to affect gameplay — one that Disney’s own ‘Disney Infinity’ franchise has managed to do incredibly well. Instead of plopping down in front of a television screen, however, Playmation combines new technology with old-fashioned imagination and physical play for an almost-new play pattern. The result is augmented imaginative role-play that encourages physical activity both indoors and outdoors, alone or with friends, anytime and virtually anywhere.
