We hit the local Walmart last week to check out Disney Infinity 2.0 (aka Disney Infinity: MARVEL Superheroes), for which the XBOX 360 Starter Pack includes three figures: Iron Man, Thor and Black Widow. With that locked-in for in-home play, I let the girls pick out some additional interactive figures, which is how the FROZEN sisters made their way into our house. Looking back on it, I sorta feel bad for telling Addie that she couldn't get GUARDIANS OF THE GALAXY's Rocket Racoon, too.
Back at HQ, it's been interesting to see how Disney Infinity 2.0 has fallen in-line with the normal swing of things. The figures get used constantly, even without the game - but when the game is on, they get dropped onto that glowing platform and their digital visage makes the jump onto our wall-mounted screen. The girls don't really understand how it works, so I just let them know that my magic is powerful.
Just as they build things and shape the physical world around them here as they play, the "Toy Box 2.0" mode allows them to create anything they want in their virtual world of Disney as well. While they might be fine just waving a wand to create some new things here and there, what they don't realize is that it's Daddy playing after-hours on the narrative side of things - occasionally snooping around for the characters to "level up."
Maybe your hero spins webs... grows adamantium claws... or wields a red, white & blue shield. Perhaps they wear a cape... a black leather jumpsuit... or even a sparkly blue dress. It's possible that they just want to rule New York City for their own... or maybe they just wanna build a snowman?
Whatever your #InfinityHeroes might be, the right time to unleash them is now.
