My family was invited to HASCON, the premiere Hasbro FANmily Event. All opinions are my own.
One of the perks of living in Rhode Island is that it is the home of one of the largest toy companies…HASBRO! Over the weekend, my family was invited to the first ever HASCON, held in Providence, RI. Lincoln has been looking forward to attending an event like this with me FOREVER!! Jared and I decided to leave Avery (my darling, wild 3-year old), with my parents, and spend a special day with our oldest son.
We made the day all about him, and just let him take the lead. We started the day grabbing our press passes, which Lincoln thought was pretty great, and then headed to the Hasbro auditions so he could try his shot at a commercial! This is the boy who dreams of being a YouTube star! Remember, he has his own channel…it’s still a work in progress, but you should check it out!
Hands down, Lincoln’s favorite event at HASCON was the NERF Battle Arena. First we tested out some NERF toys, and then Lincoln prepared for the ULTIMATE battle against his Dad!
He seriously had so much fun and couldn’t stop talking about it. His new favorite phrase is, “It’s NERF or Nothing!” We have since purchased two new NERF Guns…the exact same ones he battled with (of course). I see the beginning of an obsession.
Lincoln was also happy to see Beyblades! They had a whole area where you could battle with one another and “let it rip!” He really could have spent hours here!!
There were SO many different fun photo opps. Of course we had to do a bunch!
Naturally my favorite area was DISNEY!!! From Moana photo backdrops, to Snow White, costumes from Descendants 2, and even my second encounter with THE ROSE from the live action Beauty and The Beast, there was Disney EVERYWHERE!!
Lincoln was able to get up close and personal with Monopoly Gamer. He originally spotted this game on YouTube and couldn’t wait to tell me about it. He LOVES everything Mario!
As soon as he spotted it, he was practically jumping up and down — SO much excitement!! I’m fully assuming this will definitely be a birthday or Christmas present this year. It’s a MUST HAVE!!
Overall HASCON was really great. We easily could have spent the entire 3 days there. Between panels and everything there was to see, there was plenty to keep you busy! I hope Hasbro receives positive feedback from this event and brings it back next year!! What a FUN day!!!
