So it's no secret my boys are obsessed with all things Angry Birds Star Wars. They were thrilled with the last review we did, and pretty much freaked out when the Telepods arrived in the mail recently.
Mommy!!! The new app was available on September 19th! - from my child who had been watching all the commercials and waiting.
They tore into the box to see which one we had been sent to review this time. Disclosure: We were sent the items in the photo below for review. Opinions are, as always, all our own.
We present to you, Angry Birds Star Wars Telepods - Endor Chase.
Angry Birds Star Wars Telepods from Hasbro let kids play TWO WAYS. (That was huge with my kids.) It not only comes with a classic stack and launch game featuring iconic Angry Birds Star Wars vehicles and environments, but each Telepods figure can be used with the included Telepods base and a compatible smart device to "teleport" the character directly into the new app. This marks the first time Angry Birds players get the chance to customize their line-up, and the first time they can play as the "Pork Side" and fling the pigs.
The boys loved setting the pieces up any way they wanted. They could make the set up different almost every time.
Look closely, one of the boys launched his piece and it's knocking everything down. Favorite part right there. Never gets old they tell me.
With so many different pieces you can purchase to choose from, the boys are all over the selection and planning out which ones they want to buy next to add to their collection.
They wanted to show everyone how they play the game. They prefer to do it on the iPad for the most space, although you can do it from most cell phones as well if you install the app. (Check starwars.hasbro.com for smart device compatibility.)
The one part I still haven't told the boys yet? You can TELEPORT YOURSELF into the game! How exciting is that?! You can be an angry bird!
