JT is a big fan of super heroes and Spider-Man is one of his current favorites.
He loves pretend play and on a weekly basis he can be found at the park
playing super heroes with his friends or his little sister -
she is always gladto play the damsel in distress .
So I thought it would be fun to head to Walmart and pick up a Marketside pizza
to help us unlock and use The Amazing Spider-Man Augmented Reality App.
We found the pizza right and away and it looked delicious!
JT was at school, so this was all a surprise for him, but Isabella knows
her brother and was insistent that we get pepperoni - his favorite.
When we got home I opened up the Web-Slinger app that I downloaded
to my Samsung Galaxy Tablet from the Google Play store.
While the pizza cooked, JT got into the spirit of the Spider-Man evening
and put on one of his favorite Spider-Man t-shirts.
While the pizza cooked the kids each got to choose a Spider-Man tattoo
to sport and show that they are team Peter Parker :)
JT also took advantage of the option to turn himself into Spider-Man
in the Web-slinger Augmented Reality app - he thought it was so cool!
We started with only one page unlocked, but by scanning different Spider-Man signage
at Walmart with the Augmented Reality app we were able to unlock the rest of the
comic story along with the fantastic cover.
What's super cool is that you have the option to share it on Facebook or email
yourself a print quality copy of the personalized comic book.
Nothing motivates a 1st grader to practice his reading skills than trying
to read a comic book starring himself!
I also tried out the portion of the Augmented Reality app that allows you
to scan the cover of your Spider-Man DVD/Blu-ray and Marketside pizza box
to create a fight scene between Spider-Man and the Lizard man.
The pizza came out of the oven and looked delicious and we were
ready to eat and enjoy our (rad) advanced copy of The Amazing Spider-Man.
I used the cutout from my Marketside pizza box as a centerpiece and used the
cool Spider-Man plates I picked up on my shopping trip to Walmart.
(You can read about my entire shopping experience on Google+)
The kids had a fantastic time and it was nice to have dinner and a movie as a family.
Do you want to watch The Amazing Spider-Man before it's official release date on November 9th?
If you pre-purchase the DVD/Blu-ray you'll get access digitally through vudu.com Ultra Violet
and then Walmart will mail you a hard copy.
