The Fun Continues with KREON Micro-Scale Characters! #KREOCityVille #SpotTheSeal {#giveaway}

My ten year old son, Matthew was diagnosed with a learning disability last school year.  Achieving a diagnosis for him answered a lot of questions and gave us a better understanding of what makes Matthew tick.    He was diagnosed as an Exceptional Student with a Communications Learning Disability, meaning he knows the answers but he just can't get them out onto paper.  Matthew thrives while using the computer, expressing himself through learning a new skill, like guitar and using his creativity, such as letting his imagination soar when constructing his CityVille Invasion play and building sets.  


Last month we introduced KRE-O CityVille Invasion to our readers and friends.   As the weeks have progressed, Matthew has found himself wrapped up in the land of CityVille and his ingenuity has brought KREON micro-scale characters to life. 

KREON Micro-Scale Characters

While, Matthew takes a lot of pride in carefully and precisely putting KRE-O CityVille Invasion building sets together, I think it is the imaginative play which keeps him coming back for more.

We might as well face it - boys love a little rough and tumble play, they are just wired that way.  Boys love villains and especially these days zombies and vampires are trendy, popular and exciting to young boys.  But, so are the good guys, Matthew is one of the good guys, after all. 

Dr. Mayhem is the villain in CityVille and he is there to destroy the city along with his henchmen, the likes of zombies, vampires, and even a fire breathing dragon.  Not to fret though.  As with every villain there is a good counter balance.  In CityVille the good are The CityVille Special Ops Squad, they are the last defense again Dr. Mayhem and will stop him from taking over the city and the Sonic Power Generators.  

Matthew absolutely adores these little guys,  otherwise known as the KREON Micro Scale Characters.  Dr. Mayhem and his crew are unique to KRE-O CityVille Invasion and Matthew was super excited to make the characters come to life in the Marina Madness playset. 

SharkTooth was his favourite (obviously), yet, he also really enjoys Sergeant Splash and his police boat  Yet, this is the most awesome part of this KRE-O building set - *Sonic Motion Technology*.  The KREONS can move by placing them on the motion bricks and there are ocean sounds!
