Last minute accessories for Halloween

Halloween is this week.  Some of you are probably prepared and others always wait at the last minute to think of a costume.    Did you know that Hasbro has a big selection of masks of superheroes as well as accessories from the most popular movie or television show?

This year as part of the promotion for Halloween, I have received two products from Hasbro Canada

Halloween wouldn’t be the same if you don’t see some Guardian of the Galaxy characters on the streets.   With the Star-Lord Battle Gear Set your child will be able to lead the battle against interstellar evil.  He will  feel like the leader of the Guardians of the Galaxy when he is wearing the Star-Lord Hero Mask and load up the mini blaster with the included dart.   The mini blaster will allow your child to hit targets up to 40 feet away.  

The package is tricky and you have to be careful in cutting the parts.   I am saying this because my 2nd son was going a bit fast and accidentally cut the black elastic that was needed to hold the mask on your head.   The elastic is the same color at the paper thigh on rope that held the mask in the packaging.  Oups.   But super-mom came to the rescue with some elastic band that she has in stock for sewing projects.   All is fixed and Dominic is very happy to have a new costume for Halloween.

The Star-Lord Battle Gear is not the only mask available at Hasbro Canada.  When the movie came out I had the privilege to review another mask from the movie – Rocket Raccoon!   It is an amazing mask worth discovering and that is fun to use.

The boys were very creative in putting their costumes together along with the masks.   Jérémy, our 3rd son, immediately decided to take a big blaster in order to complete his costume.    We couldn’t agree more. 


My two heroes will walk the streets in my neighborhood on Halloween night in hopes to find villains to blast off as well as candies to collect!


Now not only Guardians of the Galaxy is popular but Star Wars is getting more and more popular as the years go by.  What started a generation of young people loving Star Wars in the 70s has splashed onto a new generations of fans with our own kids loving the series whether in movies or television shows.   Did you know that a new cartoon is out right now – Star Wars Rebels.    Hasbro was quick to bring toys based on this new television show.

Want to feel just like your favorite Star Wars villain? Then grab this incredible 3-in-1 lightsaber and battle the Rebels, just like the sinister Inquisitor from Star Wars Rebels television show.   This double-bladed lightsaber can break into 2 single lightsabers, and they come with a Force Disc you can throw at the enemy. Each lightsaber’s blade extends with the flick of a button, and you can combine them into one 3-foot blade as well.   Your child will be the most terrifying Jedi hunter in the neighboAC7FAC2850569047F5849E0A615BA424rhood when you battle in your The Inquisitor lightsaber.    It is a great accessory for kids who have opted to become a character from Star Wars Rebels this Halloween.

I find that this accessory is quite versatile since you can split it in part and use what you want at a moments notice.    I really like the disc part which could be use for a game as well.


This Halloween, surprise your kids with new accessories and have a great time on the road.   Be careful when you cross the streets and make sure you bring a flashlight as well.   Have fun with your kids and eat a few treats on your Trick or Treat adventure.

On behalf of my three youngest kids – HAPPY HALLOWEEN!


Both items are available at your favorite toy store.
