If you were a fan of the 2011 game, Skylanders: Spyro’s Adventure, then you probably already know that Skylanders: Giants is available now. Skylanders incorporates actual toy figures into the video game. You actually connect a physical toy to the video game console in order to ‘release’ that character.
I recently visited a Best Buy store to check out the demo of the Skylanders: Giants game. Honestly, I have heard of Skylanders before. I have even received a Skylanders figure while attending an event; however, I never knew what I could really do with it. Until this visit.
There is a "Portal of Power" that comes with the Skylanders: Giants Starter Pack. You place the action figures on the Portal of Power. That will put that figure in play and allow you to use it’s strengths. One of my favorite things about the Portal of Power is that it glows. I think playing with the action figures can give the younger kids a playful feel and the older kids will enjoy collecting them all.
If you already own the Skylanders: Spyro’s Adventure, you can purchase the Skylanders: Giants Portal Owner’s Pack. This package contains the video game, one Skylanders figure, one character collector poster, one sticker sheet with collector code and one trading card. If you don’t have Spyro’s Adventure, no worries. You can buy Skylanders: Giants Starter Pack. This package includes the video game, a Portal of Power, three Skylanders figures, a character collector poster, three sticker sheets with secret codes and three trading cards.
Be sure to visit Best Buy’s website to find a store near you. Select Best Buys will feature the Skylanders: Giants demo. You can also order this game online where free shipping may be available.
