See, my wife's done blog tours as part of a group called Mom Central Consulting and now the moms have a counterpart: Dad Central. Well, I like blogs and I like tours, and my kids love toys, so that's how, just for today, the name of this blog is Playtime. [The tenuous link to writing is that the hero of the blog tour is a famous comic book--today we call them "graphic novels"--character. And now I get to write about him.]
Massive excitement. That was the emotion, at least among the junior members of the clan, when a huge cardboard box arrived the other day. We sliced through the tape. We pawed through the piles of brown paper. Until we came to...
|The Green Lantern Colossal Cannon|
|Green Lantern Basic Figure Assortment|
Great galloping green toys that make a lot of noise! Like, realistic gun noise with flashing lights. And shooting projectiles. (In a pacifist home, no less. Now they're bound to join the army!)

"This is what you get for taking away my mask, Dad."
|How's this for an aloha?|
|Sending Buzz Lightyear to infinity and beyond|
And, by June 17th, when the movie Green Lantern opens, these toys are going to be all the rage. You can find them at Mattel or at a toy store near you.
Disclaimer: I wrote this review while participating in a blog tour by Dad Central Consulting on behalf of Mattel, and received Green Lantern toys to facilitate my review and a promotional item to thank me for taking the time to participate.
