I think Spiderman is everywhere. Spiderman is one of those superheroes that has a reputation like Superman. You will always find toys, bedding, Hallowen costumes, etc., geared towards these superheros. Kind of like the "Princess" stuff for girls, it's superheros for boys. With the new movie out, there's even more stuff out in the stores.

Check out the video stores in the kids section. Maybe like Superman, there are multiple DVDs out, and maybe some age appropriate ones. I know my dd can't wait to see the new movie, and she's never seen 1 or 2 yet either. Maybe it's all the super effects they show on the commercials!

(My 20 yo dd just saw the movie and she said the effects were good, but the storyline wasn't. I'm waiting for Shrek 3 to take 5yo dd too.)

My almost four year old son is also obsessed with Spiderman, and like yours he picked it up at school. Neither I nor my DH had any Spiderman experience, but after a few short months I feel like I could work at a comic book store or write a blog about those superheros! There are Spiderman cartoons you can rent at Blockbuster on DVD or buy: http://www.amazon.com/Spider-Man-Venom-Animated-Bob-Richardson/dp/B0007RT9MG. They are geared more towards kids than the movies, and each DVD is just comprised of several episodes of the show (not sure when it aired or if it ever did). If you are wanting to indulge your little one in the spiderman craze there is an excellent game that they sell at Walmart. Its Spiderman and Friends Memory Match, but instead of just the cards this game has the head and feet of the characters, and they "hide" under cups waiting to be matched. Its a fun game for the superhero obsessed child, and it is building learning skills as well. As an added plus my son uses them as "people" whom he has talk to eachother...very cute!:) Good luck with your little spidey.

You'd be amazed how much they learn from one another and how much they create
