Captain America: The Winter Soldier Pizza Party!

6:00 AM


This post is brought to you in collaboration with Lunchbox PR, all opinions are my own.

With four boys in the house, I am no stranger to superheros of all shapes and sizes. Their favorites by far are the members of the Avengers, and Captain America in particular. When they found out there was going to be a Captain America: The Winter Soldier, they were thrilled! They were equally thrilled when I was offered the chance to test out some of the latest Captain America toys available at Walmart. Better yet, we were to throw a pizza party with our favorite Walmart Marketside frozen pizzas too. Toys and pizza? Those are music to a little boy's ears. So, I whipped up a Captain America: The Winter Soldier pizza party to celebrate the release of Captain America: The Winter Soldier in theaters and the release of Thor 2 on Blu Ray.

Captain America Pizza Party


The centerpiece of our food table was of course the gigantic Walmart Marketside pizza. They have awesome new pizzas with Captain America and Thor characters on them and a killer Vudu discount offer, but unfortunately, I was not able to find any of those in my stores yet. I did however find our tried and true super sized Philly Cheesesteak Marketside pizza. These things are huge, and more than enough to feed a bunch of hungry boys!



Other food items included a fruit and whipped cream tray made to look like Captain America's shield, red, white and blue Jello cups, Avengers themed cupcakes from Walmart, Avenger's themed candy, chips with red, white and blue ranch dip, and patriotic fruit kabobs. To drink, we had both red and blue Gatorade.





I stopped by the dollar store and picked up some great Avengers and Captain America themed fillers for the goody bags. They had a great variety of items to choose from. For entertainment, we played with the new Captain America toys available at Walmart, and watched Thor 2 for a little downtime.

New Captain America Toys!


We were sent four new Captain America toys to test out, and test them out we did. To say my boys are not easy on toys would be an understatement. There was very little assembly needed with any of the toys, and they were all basically ready to go right out of the box. My boys are more active and into outdoor play, so the shield and helmet were the biggest hits, but they really enjoyed them all.

Marvel Captain America Stealthfire Shield



This shield hooks around your child's arm and has four easy load darts that can be loaded from the back when the shield is closed. You pull a lever to pop up the mechanism holding the darts, and squeeze the handle in the front to shoot the darts. It is all very intuitive.

Marvel Captain America Battle Helmet



My 10 year old claimed this right away and popped it on his head. It is adjustable so that it can fit a small child or even an adult. I may or may not have tried it on myself. When he put it on, I was surprised that in addition to shooting two small darts from the side of the helmet, it also glows up with red lights. Pretty cool, and it provides for a variety of creative play scenarios.


Marvel Captain America Shield Blast Motorcycle Vehicle



This turned out to be the least played with toy, but it still got plenty of use. I think it would be great for younger children especially. It comes with a smaller figure on a motorcycle that can be pushed along. In addition, it comes with three shields that can be shot from the side of the vehicle with the push of a button.

Marvel Legends Ultra Strike Captain America Figure



This Captain America figure is a lot of fun. He is very mobile, and has a shield that attaches to his arm. When you squeeze his legs together, he shoots the shield off of his arm. He also has a button to press that leads to him saying a variety of different sayings.

Walmart Captain America/Avengers Portal


Walmart has teamed up with Disney/Marvel to bring you everything a Captain America/Avengers lover could need all in one convenient place. This shopping portal, has access to the Captain America: The Winter Soldier trailer, free downloads of awesome wallpapers, and easy shopping access to everything Avengers from books, toys, movies and items for the home!
