We have had the pleasure (and by we I totally mean my boys and husband) of reviewing KRE-O products in the past but this new product line is amazing!
Hasbro and Zynga are continuing their partnership by introducing the new KRE-O CityVille Invasion line. KRE-O is introducing a new KRE-O CityVille Invasion line of sets inspired by the all new CityVille Insavion app by Zynga, which debuted yesterday. You can download the free app here.
In the app, the evil Dr. Mayhem and his bad guy squad have invaded and it’s up to players and their heroic KREON figures to defend their cities against his destruction! The KRE-O sets bring the game to life. Builders can construct one of several CityVille Invasion locations, including haunted houses, skyscrapers, marinas, and police stations. One unique feature is that each set features Sonic Motion Technology, where sound waves emitted from set trigger special movements in the KRE-O bricks making characters shuffle, crash, or swim across the sets. All sets will officially land on shelves starting 8/1.
The city-building fun of CityVille comes to life! Build your own city with CityVille Invasion Kre-O sets and defend it from invasion. You can use the 270 pieces in this Police Station Zombie Defense set to build a police station with a rotating gun turret and a combat vehicle. Then it’s time for your Sgt. Baker and Deputy Strong figure to defend the station when your Zombie Bandit, Zombie Teen and Chief Zito figures attack! Will the zombie attack succeed? The set includes weapons for the best human-zombie battle ever! Who will your mystery Kreon figure turn out to be? There’s only one way to find out! The set’s Sonic Motion brick makes real police sounds! Use the 5 motion bricks to make your Kreon figures move. Build a Cityville zombie adventure with the Police Station Zombie Defense set!

My take: I would like to show you pictures of our building experience but halfway through a certain little girl who is just learning to walk toddled through the setup making for some not so happy boys. However the rebuilding process is scheduled for this weekend since we just started school yesterday. Things I can tell you: the boys think the zombie figures are “really cool” and I must admit I have never seen zombie figures which seem to be quite the rage for their age range. The police sounds add to the excitement and I like that the zombies can be defeated by the good guys (police). The fact that this playset correlates with the app is a very neat concept…the boys can immediately transfer watching from the phone to playing in real life. I can’t wait until the boys can use the Sonic Motion Technology, which I think will really set this set apart from all the rest we have built.
