Marvel’s Avengers continue to be a hot commodity this year, and there are plenty of great toys in this franchise. Hasbro marked this year’s release of the movie Age of Ultron with a full line of action figures and role-play toys, plus the first Avengers Movie Action Sets, which can be combined to form an Avengers HQ playset! Very cool. Here are my top picks for gifting this holiday.
