If there’s anything Toy Story taught us, it’s that toys have the ability to open up a child’s imagination. Toys have done a lot for kids in developing their imaginations, even apart from their use during playtime. From inspiring kids to dream big or teaching “big kids” to do what’s right, toys (and the characters behind them) are so important. Sprinkle a little Disney movie magic in and you not only have the desire to see a movie, but want what’s in it as well! In the same way, movie merchandising serves our need to have a little piece of the movie. And there’s no exception for this summer’s hit blockbuster “Guardians of the Galaxy“.
Like anything Marvel, they have teamed up with the all-powerful Disney Consumer Products has created an action-packed assortment of products to promote their film. With thrilling action figures and vehicles to interactive gear, this new toy line from our friends at Hasbro will either make you a kid again or make you want to be a kid again (and be OK with it)!
