Warner Bros.’ The LEGO Batman Movie has proven to be one of 2017’s biggest hits – a follow-up to 2014’s The LEGO Movie, but one with perhaps even more appeal to families that embrace the desire for adventure. Like it’s predecessor, our kids have had a desire to take the film with them, and that’s something we’ve seen from the start. When General Motors showed off the Chevrolet version of The LEGO Movie Batmobile at The Chicago Auto Show back in February, my oldest daughter was right there rockin’ her LEGO Batman backpack. When a LEGO Batgirl costume popped up at Walmart – the girls had to have it. And by summer, the movie was available on Digital HD, and the girls insisted that it be added to the iPad for the road. In fact, on our June trip to the lake house in Wisconsin, we traveled with a LEGO Batman pack.

With Addie’s backpack loaded with an assortment of early reader books from Scholastic and DK Readers, we also threw in a couple of entry-level building sets (sent to us for review) including the Catwoman Catcycle Chase (139 pieces) and Mr Freeze Ice Attack (201 pieces). Those two sets paired together are a great way to affordably assemble the main characters from the film (sans Joker) as the Catwoman set includes minifigures of Batgirl, Robin and Catwoman, while the Mr. Freeze set features Batman, Mr. Freeze and a Security Guard. A collection of blind bags (sold separately) can help round out your own personal “Rogue’s Gallery” of villains.

As Back-to-School season begins and late summer/early fall road trips take shape, kids who want to mark their own packs can do so with new LEGO Batman Movie luggage tags – available in assorted characters. I’m partial to the “Glam Rocker” Batman myself…
