Hot Video Game for the Holidays: Skylanders Giants! #Skylanders
Posted Nov 09 2012 4:57pm
One of my boys’ favorite video games is Skylanders Spyro’s Adventure, so they were thrilled to hear that a new Skylanders game has arrived this year: Skylanders Giants! Like the first game, players collect toy figures that acquire special powers and interact in the game when they are placed on a unique portal. The cool thing about this game is that it’s actually two toys in one: Not only can you play the video game, but you can play with and collect the toy figures, too. I’ve caught my son, Caleb, more than once making up an imaginary game with his Skylanders characters. The Skylanders video games are also unique because you can take your figures over to a friend’s house and use them on his game, even if he’s playing on a different platform! And when kids visit Skylanders Universe online, they can access a whole new virtual world for free.
Watch this exciting video for a sneak peek at the new Skylanders Giants game!

Skylanders Giants introduces 16 new characters: 8 Giant Skylanders (2x the size of regular Skylanders) and 8 new classic-sized Skylanders with never-seen-before powers! There are also new LightCore™ Skylanders, which glow when they get on or even near the portal. Very cool! And if your child already has the Skylanders Spyro’s Adventure game, all of their favorite characters are 100% compatible with Skylanders Giants.
Skylanders Giants is available for Xbox, PS3, Wii, and Nintendo 3DS. The original Skylanders game is the #1 selling game and highest selling action figure, so Skylanders Giants is sure to be one of the hottest picks for the holidays this year! My boys and all of their friends absolutely love the Skylanders games. I hope that Santa has plenty of Skylanders Giants games and new Skylanders figures in his toy factory this year!
