Van Heusen calls themselves the Institute of Style, and they are opening the doors of their Institute of Style because they #GiveAShirt this holiday season. Van Heusen prepares their customers for game changing moments in their lives — interviews, first dates, meeting the parents, holidays, etc. — they want to pass on this look good and feel more confident to people everywhere.

LEGO Iron Man: A Closer Look

LEGO Iron Man 2

If you are looking for a very special gift to give your children this holiday season, well you may be in luck!!! Merry Christmas!! Let’s take a look at one of the most hotly demanded toys of 2013. Available in a great selection of colors, the new Lego Iron Man action figure has become a sensational alternative for those parents that are looking to buy their kids a very enjoyable toy to play with. If you would like to play with your kids and enjoy a great time with them, the Iron Man figure is a great alternative to other and more traditional gifts.

Be a Part of the Marvel Universe

While we all love LEGO, the company is mainly known for its incredible attention to the detail and their dedication to offering children the possibility of creating unique universes. That’s why we love it. However, the fact remains that so many kids have always loved playing with comic superheroes. Since the last decade, many characters of the Marvel universe have been available in the new ‘LEGO Superheroes’ collection, allowing kids to recreate the incredible adventures of Spider-Man, Iron Man, Captain America or any of the many other Marvel heroes. Of course, it is also possible to find villains in this collection, such as Magneto, Loki or even Ultron, one of the most well-known Iron Man enemies.

LEGO Iron Man

Play With One of the Most Popular Marvel Characters 

One of the many reasons of the popularity of Iron Man has a lot to do with the successes of ‘Iron Man 3’ and ‘The Avengers‘, two of the highest-grossing films of the last three years. The design of the new LEGO Iron Man figure draws its inspiration from those movies, allowing kids to choose between different suits and a series of accessories and weapons.

Iron Man, also known as Tony Stark, has also recently developed into one of the most recognizable characters of the Marvel universe, probably because of his flashy and easy-going personality, as well as for his incredible arsenal of weapons. While video games and comic books can help you kids have a great time, the new Iron Man, Wolverine or Thor figures will allow children to learn how to share their toys with other children and will also allow them to develop their creativity and empathy.

Let your children’s imagination fly and pick up the new LEGO Iron Man figure this Christmas.
