What It Is
What It Is
In anticipation of the new Thor movie hitting theaters this summer, Hasbro has created a Thor toy line that includes roleplay items. Based on Thor's weapon Mjolnir, with which Thor controls rain, wind, and lightning, the Thor Lightning Hammer brings the action of the film to life. The soft, plastic hammer makes lightning sounds and lights up with the press of a button. Kids can also launch a soft-tipped dart from the top of the hammer.
Why It’s Fun
The hammer is Thor's signature weapon, so kids will really like that they are able to have their own just like Thor. With the Lightning Hammer, kids can pretend that they are Thor and recreate the action from the movie or imagine their own heroic adventures.
Who It’s For
The Thor Lightning Hammer is for ages 5 and up. Boys who are into Marvel superheroes, especially Thor, will be most likely to enjoy this toy.
What to Be Aware of
The Lightning Hammer comes with three AAA batteries.
We wish this were designed a little bit better. The button to create the sounds and fire the projectile is up at the top of the handle, right below the hammer's head, making it a little cumbersome for small hands to work.
Other Thor roleplay items, such as the Thor Helmet and basic, foam Thor Hammer, are sold separately.
Don't aim the hammer's missile at the eyes or face. Don't poke or swing the hammer at people or animals. It may be made of soft plastic, but it still hurts if you get hit with it. Also be sure to use the hammer away from breakable objects.
