Man of Steel–that’s the new Superman movie–is in theaters this Friday ,and we highly encourage you to bring the kids along! This 2 hour and 20 minute feature is appropriate for all audiences, and moves quickly enough that children over the age of 6 won’t get bored. (We could’ve done without Lois Lane having a very adult line in her opening scene, but that’ll go over the kids’ heads.) After they see this adrenaline-pumping film, they’ll be inspired by Superman for days!
Toy manufactures know that, too. Here are our five favorites from all the hot Warner Brothers merchandise you can buy to keep the fun going for your little ones long after the film is over.

This Quick Shots game is inspired by the climatic Man of Steel scene where the evil General Zod lands his scary ships to take over a small town! Not to fear, though–there’s Superman to the rescue! This toy fires up the imagination. There’s also some eye/hand coordination involved as children aim at small targets to rotate the Superman sign, defeat Zod’s army, and rescue the city!
