Marvel Science Captain America Shield Trainer Toy
My son was really excited when we received the Marvel Science Captain America Shield Trainer from Uncle Milton Toys for review. All the opinions expressed are our own even though we did receive the toy for free. My son loves science and construction toys and this seemed to be the perfect fit for him. Uncle Milton makes a ton of cool toys for kids.
My son really digs anything that has to do with construction and science so I knew the Captain America Shield Trainer was going to be a perfect fit for him. The object of this science toy is calculate and launch a shield attack on the bad guys.
Do You Know a Boy Who Loves Science and Super Heroes?
Setting up the Captain America Shield Trainer was the perfect challenge for our 8 year old son; he loves constructing things like this and Captain America is one of his favorite Super Heroes ever!
Inside the Captain America Shield Trainer game there are 9 connectable game board pieces that you need to put together. The game board pieces are very sturdy; they’re made of a thick, laminated stock that allows the shield to slide across it effortlessly.
The game board is made to be played in the corner of a room on the floor so you can use the wall to adjust the position of the ricochet beams. We set up ours in the corner of the living room so we would have enough room for the 22-inch square board.
Getting Read for Battle Training
Once the board is set up on the floor, you can set up the different barriers and bad guys to begin battle training. There are lots of different battle challenges you can set up on the board, or you can create your own. Using the quick fire shield launcher, aim and fire the discs so that they bounce off the different barriers or ricochet beams and knock down the bad guys on the board.

Marvel Science Kits are Entertaining and Educational!
What I love as parent about this Captain America Shield Trainer is that it makes my son think strategically about how he’s going to set-up the board, the villains and position his shield launcher. Besides having a lot of entertainment value, it has a lot of educational value as well and that matters a lot to me as a mom.
