Disney Infinity 3.0 at Madame Tussauds

Last week it was my twins birthday. I had been thinking of something to do with them on the actual day because we decided not to throw a party for them this year. They didn’t seem that bothered about having one and we’d been to loads towards the end of term anyway so they were all partied out!

Then, we received an invite to go and preview the brand new Disney Infinity 3.0 Play Without Limits at Madame Tussauds on their birthday and I thought, perfect! My kids will LOVE that, they adore gaming, they can try out this new game and then we get to spend the rest of the day wandering round Madame Tussauds, somewhere I haven’t been for years and wanted to visit again!

The Disney Infinity 3.0 has a special reason for being unveiled at this very famous London venue, and that is because one of the new Disney Infinity 3.0 starter console packs comes with the Star Wars playset… and Madame Tussauds has had a brand new Star Wars Exhibition running this summer, so it was the ideal place.

My twins have really got into their Playstation this year! They usually only play Minecraft though so we have been looking for a new game to buy, one that isn’t too difficult to get the hang of and one that will captivate them just as much!

I now think we have just been introduced to that game!

When we arrived at Madame Tussauds we were taken to a special room where the Disney Infinity Team had set up. O and H couldn’t wait to get stuck in and headed straight for the game station! They were invited to pick characters and off they went….. into the Star Wars world! And it didn’t take them long to become immersed in game play!

They absolutely loved it. I’ve actually never seen them get this excited about any event we’ve been to before. As a blogger we have been lucky enough to attend many different types of product launches but usually I have to really entice and encourage the boys to get involved. Normally it’s my daughter who takes over and has to be the one to try things out. But not here…. the boys were practically in a frenzy, tripping over themselves to play the game!

We did manage to persuade them to let my daughter and Teen have a go, albeit under duress!

During this takeover, they switched games and characters to play the all new Disney’s Inside Out pack! They too loved it and didn’t want to stop play.

But my twins were back playing as soon as they possibly could! This pack was also a big hit!

If you’ve never heard of Disney Infinity before, it’s an interactive gaming platform that unlocks the freedom to create stories and play experiences starring some of your favourite characters like never before. When you place your Disney Infinity Figures on the game base, they spring to life in the game. The more you play, the more characters, buildings, gadgets will be unlocked for your adventures.

One Game, Two ways to play.

PLAY SETS – Play in their galaxy! Play through epic adventures in the world of some of your favourite characters.

TOY BOX – Create your own universe! Imagine a world where all the characters, vehicles and settings you’ve collected can come together in whatever way you want them to. Imagine creating your own crazy game universe where you can make anything happen. Mix, match and mash-upStar Wars™, MARVEL, Disney and Disney•Pixar characters together in one place!

Toy Box Expansion Games unlock additional hours of gameplay inside Toy Box 3.0. Players place a Toy Box Expansion Game Piece on the Disney Infinity Base to unlock pre-built games that instantly take them into the action, mixing, matching and mashing-up characters from across The Walt Disney Company and using unlocked toys and gadgets to complete missions.

The game was a big hit and as we were leaving, the Disney Infinity team promised to send our very own starter pack to us to play at home! Yay! How amazing is that? Not sure if O and H can wait……

But to take their minds off it for the time being, we spent the rest of the day wandering around Madame Tussauds, which was absolutely amazing!

The new Star Wars exhibition was brilliant. Here’s a few pics we took on the day….

We had a fantastic day, so thank you so much Disney Infinity and Madame Tussauds :)

I have to say that the kids asked every single day without fail, when their Disney Infinity 3.0 was going to arrive? It drove me mad…. but finally, this weekend it arrived!

Disney Infinity 3.0: Play Without Limits is being developed by Avalanche Software in partnership with Ninja Theory, Sumo Digital, Studio Gobo and United Front Games. Additional Disney, Disney•Pixar, Marvel and Star Wars™ figures and Play Sets will be announced in the coming months. With Disney Infinity 3.0, fans have the unique opportunity to play with all of the Star Wars™ characters in all of the Star Wars™ Play Sets.

Disney Infinity 3.0 Video Game and Base are required to play the Toy Box Expansion Games. Toy Box Takeover and Toy Box Speedway will be sold separately. All figures and Power Discs from the 1.0 and 2.0 editions of Disney Infinity will be compatible with Disney Infinity 3.0 in the enhanced Toy Box 3.0.

I cannot recommend this highly enough. The Star Wars game has been given a 7+ age rating but my twins have just turned 6 and I wouldn’t be at all concerned about that myself, but I just thought I would mention it.

Disney Infinity would make a perfect gift and with the all-in price for the whole starter pack as little as £39.99, it really is amazing value!

I’d better start collecting those extra playing characters to go into the Christmas stockings :)
