Who says shopping can’t be fun in Hampton Roads?
Most moms’ cringe at the thought of bringing their children along shopping, myself included! Kroger Stores in our area are going to change your mind about this while introducing Kroger Marvel Micropopz! My family and I recently attended one of our local Kroger's special events to learn more about these superheroes invading one of our favorite stores in Hampton Roads. My children were super excited to share this experience with me and hopeful to see their favorite superheroes in action. My daughter and I agree that this is going to be the new craze that will get your children motivated to go shopping without all the moans and groans. Kroger has made shopping more fun for families with this interactive shopping experience while combining two things kids love. Here they are captivated by their favorite toys and their superheroes such as Captain America, The Hulk, Spiderman and more!
What are Marvel Micropopz!? They are 24 mini Marvel collectible figurines with suction cups at the bottom making them an interesting personal adventure on the go. Have fun collecting all of your favorite characters, which invite your children to live there moments as they fight villains throughout the stores while you shop. The benefit for parents is that you can help your children collect these fun figurines just by doing your daily or weekly shopping at Kroger! You will receive one Free Marvel Micropopz package for every $30 you spend or you can purchase them for only $0.99. Easily increase your chances of collecting more of your favorite characters for free by purchasing the Mega Event products.
Experience a bigger reality with your superhero friends when you shop at Kroger by downloading the Kroger Marvel Micropopz app. Apple and Android devices allow you to be able to have fun with 6 different Marvel heroes. While shopping look around the store for the different displays, floor stickers, and posters with Marvel related icons. You will utilize the app and scan the icons displayed there to be surprised whom you can take a picture with. My son enjoyed this feature, especially with his wild imagination, feeling the Hulk and Groot were helping us shop while he was a fighting villain.
Visit Kroger and share your photos with a post to social media on your favorite platform with #krogermicropopz for fun interaction with others! Your app with also help you keep track of the entire Micropopz collection and which team member you need to collect next.
Store your entire Marvel Micropopz collection and get a limited edition collector album while supplies last!

Recently, I had lost a person in my life who I considered a good friend. This person and I did everything together which for me , I did not realize the impact they had on every aspect of my life until the friend was no longer in the picture. During the process of losing this friend , I had made and lost others in the process too , which looking back when I made them they were not always in the healthiest situations. Like any type of relationship it takes work, but also communication is key in order navigate how can relate your feelings and concerns to your friends.
Making friends as an adult is as equally as hard as a child growing up today. I hate to say it people just don’t make friends like they used to. But how people make friends is no different than when you were a child. People are attracted to what you have , if it money, power of some sort or just be able to do things for them. You could just be that over all person who has it together everyone wants to be your friend. Its hard even in adulthood to make friends and navigate relationships with concerns you might just be getting used.
With my recent friendship breakup, the impact it had on my children is what cause a concern for me. I am momma bear and I protect my cubs from pain and hurt. When they see mom has friends they have friends too. When friend leaves without some sort of reasoning in a child mind they can look how they should be navigating relationship with their own peers. Its hard to explain to a child why a person or people are in their life for a moment without telling them the full story. In many cases it might seem trivial but it may not be something you can explain to your child at that time.
Today, I want to teach my daughter and son ways I could have made these relationships better. Could they have changed the outcome as to what would have happened ? These are questions I ask myself everyday but what I want is for my children to know how to navigate relationship and not get hurt. For me these tips are ways I help my children to establish a better connection for he right way to have healthy friendships.
