Finding a Safe Hobby For Chaz

Marvel Hero Clix Game - Booster 8pkWe have been looking for a hobby for Chaz.  Something he would really be into that has nothing to do with video games.  Well, my husband plays a sort of "board game" with his friends once a week.  It's called Hero Clix.  You collect these little guys (I'm telling this in a girlie sort of view) and they each have points.  You use a map on the table and place your guys.  It's basically like the Marvel Comic characters.  It's really fun. 

One day my husband was out buying some new ones (seriously cheap for just one or two) and my sons asked if they could use their chore money to buy a couple of them for themselves.  We said, "sure!"  Chaz loves, loves sitting down and playing with his brother or even just by himself.   He's so much more motivated to do his chores now knowing that he's earning money for more of these guys. 

I love hobbies but the only one my son was into was video games, and as you can see by previous posts. it has a bad effect on him.  Getting into a hobby like this helps him to have something to look forward to, occupy, learn, and socialize with his brother or friends that also love to play.  I'm excited about this one.  Well, so is Chaz!

Thank you for posting this. My son, Landon, also loves his video games but also loves little figures. He use to be very into Thomas trains but right now it's Ben 10 characters. I am going to look into these...I think he would love them!! Glad I found your blog :-).
