Skylanders have landed at UK MUMSTV and are celebrating the launch of the brand new much awaited Skylanders swapforce. This new addition is sure to take kids on new adventures with 32 brand new never seen heroic characters each with different unique powers and personalities.
As part of the new launch serveral families were selected to review Skylanders products.
To be honest I didn’t know much about Skylanders myself but my son Ryan loves them and when I told him we had been chosen to review he was so excited awaiting his package.
Ryan received the Skylanders Giants for wii console.
The story of the Skylanders goes like this- “Thousands of years ago, the Skylanders Giants fought epic battles in Skylands, but were banished to Earth. With a new threat looming, it’s time to bring them back to join forces with the Skylanders.”
The game pack features a wii game. Portal of power and 3 unique characters aswel as instructions and game cards.
The portal of power connects to your console via USB and instantly lights up and changes colours. The characters included are placed on the portal and interact in your gameplay. It’s almost like they come to life.
Luckily for me Ryan seemed to get to grips with how to play the game very easily and seemed to enjoy playing it; as I had to drag him away from it after an hour or two. He was making a lot of noise and dancing round the room with the wii remote; so it is definitely keeping him busy throughout the school holidays.
There are lots of other characters to collect in the Skylanders giants range. I believe there are over 40 in total which will probably make good stocking fillers at Christmas time for him.
Overall it is a very enjoyable game and collectors series and I think girls would enjoy this just as much as boys; although Jordanna isn’t really bothered about video games at the moment.
As the new Skylanders Swapforce is about to hit the shops I have no doubt Ryan will be asking for this at Christmas time. To find out more about this new addition to Skylanders: head over to Ukmumstv and join in the fun.
