Marvel Universe Live

Super heroes and fans Assemble! This live action-packed innovative battle has been so successful! I saw the commercial on TV and I immediately purchased our tickets. It was held at All State Arena in Rosemont, IL so it's an easy commute on a summer day of September 2015. Featuring your favorite Marvel superheroes from Spider-Man, Captain America, Thor, Iron Man and their best villains battle on stage! I love the entire show and Loki's charisma never fails the audience! The set has the best cutting-edge technology special effects, aerial stunts and video projection. This event is for all ages. I enjoyed the entire show especially watching the amazing stunts and storyline. I even lined up for souvenirs just to buy the special tumbler that glows! I hope there will be another show (another storyline) so that I can watch it again. Souvenirs on sale My glowing tumbler! I captured some clips during the show and I hope you enjoy watching.

Mold-A-Rama: An instant toy vending machine

I visited the Field Museum in Chicago and I encountered this mold-a-rama machine . To my curiosity, I inserted my money (forgot if it's $3 or $5), selected the toy I wanted and then the machine started working. This molding process took only a minute, the two aluminum plates holds the melted plastic and then cooled and hardened. The best part of this is you'll able to take this home right away after it's created. I love to collect plastic dinosaur toys! Mold-a-Rama company was established in 1960s in Chicago and it's one of the best souvenir I've ever had during my visit to the museum. The machines have different toy features during your museum or zoo visit. So you better check out if they have special designs. Also, another tip is to look around the surroundings. There maybe a lot of interesting toy machine souvenirs (aside from coins, pins, magnets). Here's the official website and the list of toys:
