TOYS FROM THE MOVIE THOR: THOR COSTUME ACCESSORIES, ACTION FIGURES AND VIDEO GAMES
Kids will enjoy playing with the toys based on the movie Thor. Whether it be a Thor hammer, a Thor action figure, or a Thor video game, there is something being offered for all ages.
What a crazy summer this is going to be for movies. I do not think I have ever seen a summer with so many potential blockbuster movies set to be released. Marvel starts off its summer of the super hero a little bit early with the release of the movie Thor on May 6.
The basic plot is this: Thor, a powerful but arrogant warrior, is sent down to Earth as punishment for re-igniting a reckless war. But after a dangerous villain from his world sends the darkest forces of Asgard to invade Earth, the hammer wielding Thor will learn what it takes to be a true hero in order to save mankind. The movie stars Chris Hemsworth, Anthony Hopkins, and Natalie Portman. Thor is rated PG-13.
I have two kids who are really excited to see Thor. I am not sure if I am going to let my eight year old see it but we will see. There is a lot of Thor merchendise availble at Amazon. There are Thor costume accesories, Thor action figures and Thor video games. Below are some of the best offerings that are available.
THOR COSTUME ACCESSORIES
What little kid does not like dressing up in a super hero costume? I know in my family I have had spiderman, the hulk and many others running around the yard at different times in the last five years. There are many Thor costume accessories available at amazon. I thought I would point out a few of the best ones.
THOR LIGHTINING HAMMER
Your child can drive you crazy with the Thor Lightning Hammer. This has been a real popular seller.

THOR BASIC HAMMER
This is the hammer I recommend the most. I saw these at Target and my youngest kid loved it. This is also a very popular item. This item is made from soft Nerf like foam so when your kids hit each other it will not hurt.

A child can not run around and be Thor without a genuine helmet. Right?
