Invicta Challenge sells a toy that brings to life the real story of a Native American paratrooper on D-Day.
Invicta Challenge brings history to life in this fun interactive app and graphic novel set. Gina's Library of Reviews is happy to bring you this review.
My Thoughts about the Invicta Challenge:
Children learn more and have more fun with learning when they can do things hands on. Invicta challenge does just that. Kids can learn from the beautifully illustrated graphic novel that is in this set. The set also comes with an action figure that children can use to act out their own stories.
Flash & Thunder includes an operations packet, 2 detailed maps, 108-page graphic novel and collectible paratrooper figure, which tie to a free-to-play mobile game.
You can play the game online for free. I would highly recommend you purchase the full set that is available In stores at Barnes & Noble, National World War II Museum, St. Louis Museum of Transportation, and other fine retailers. It can also be purchased online at: Amazon.com, Barnesandnoble.com, JMCremps.com & the National WW2 Museum.
In honor of the first hero portrayed by Invicta Challenge in Flash & Thunder, the company helped create a Turner Turnbull Scholarship with the Chahta Foundation, a nonprofit that works alongside the Choctaw Nation of Oklahoma. The company will donate a portion of its in-app sales to this scholarship supporting a Choctaw Nation student in his or her 2nd year of college. The company will kick off the scholarship drive with a donation of $1,000 at a Dec. 3 event in Durant, OK with the Choctaw Nation.
Says founder Jim Murphy, “The scholarship funding amount is based upon purchases of the Flash & Thunder app. The more people who download and experience the story of Turner Turnbull, Bob Niland, Ben Vandevoort, and the rest of the men who stormed Normandy and freed Europe, the more we will be able to donate to support the scholarship. Our goal is to raise at least $25,000, and we will update the community regularly on our progress. We have seeded the scholarship with a gift of $1,000 from Invicta Challenge and will build upon that with in-app purchases.”
My nephew is 11 and loved this interactive game. He also loved the action figure and graphic novel as he loves history and the military. As an adult I even enjoyed playing the app. It was fun, bright colors and I felt in control of the action. This is also a great game to play as a family with your child. You can teach them more about history and how their decisions can effect the future.
