Guardians of the Galaxy has become one of the biggest movies of 2014. As parents, we know that when a superhero movie hits it big in the theaters, our kids are going to want E-V-E-R-Y-T-H-I-N-G they can get their hands on that has to do with the particular movie. Adrian is one of those kids. He loves superheroes, begged me to see the movie and now he goes around thinking he's Star Lord! I'm not going to lie, I loved the movie myself and have probably egged on the newfound obsession with the Guardians! I might have even dubbed this year, the Guardians of the Galaxy Christmas!
I have been scouring the stores and the internet for Guardians of the Galaxy merchandise to get for Adrian and a few other family members that are also obsessed with the movie. I have found alot of things at Walmart! I have even put all the amazingness into a gift guide that I have sent family and friends that have been asking me what to get Adrian for Christmas!

2. MARVEL: Guardians of the Galaxy DVD: The Blu-Ray/DVD/HD ($19.96) release date is December 9th (just in time!).

This will definitely be in Adrian's stocking!

They play on both the GOTG playset (#6 below) and in the toy box. Oh and right now, you can get a $5 Walmart gift card when you purchase a Groot, Drax or Rocket Racoon figure so these are an amazing buy and a great gift!
6. Disney Infinity 2.0 Guardians of the Galaxy Playset: ($34.96) This is BIG right here. If you have a Disney Infinity fan in your home, then this is the playset I'm sure they have been asking you for! This playset comes with the Starlord and Gamora figures!

8. Titan Hero Series Rocket Racoon 12" Action Figure: ($7.37) No super hero collection is complete without action figures and every GOTG fan needs a Rocket action figure!
I've already gotten started on Adrian's wishlist while I was at Walmart the other day. I purchased the Disney Infinity 2.0 GOTG Playset, Starlord and Rocket Racoon action figures and I found GOTG wrapping paper!
I quickly wrapped up the items and placed them under the tree. Now, I felt kind of bad for Adrian since he kept looking at the gifts, begging to open one. (I really should have waited until Christmas Eve but I was loving the wrapping paper!). Anyway, I let him open one and guess which one he grabbed:
The surprised look and this smile right here is it for me. Yes he picked the Infinity playset and he has been playing it ever since, any chance he gets! It's looking like the Groot and Rocket Racoon figures will probably be stocking stuffers, along with the DVD that I already pre-ordered!
Guardians of the Galaxy merchandise is available at Walmart. I have found merchandise in the toy section, home section, entertainment section and the music section.
Did you see the Guardians of the Galaxy movie in the theaters? Will the DVD be a stocking stuffer for your superfan this year?
