My Son Is the UltimateSkylandersFan #Skylanders

My son IS the ultimate Skylanders fan. How do I know this?

  • He plays the game whenever he gets the chance.
  • He talks about Skylanders all the time.
  • He knows miniscule details about Skylanders that he tells us…and then quizzes us about what he just told us in case we weren’t listening and don’t recall exactly what he just said.
  • He was an early player of the game…when it was Skylanders Spyro’s Adventures.
  • He CANNOT wait to get his mitts on Skylanders Giants.

Last night, he was unable to move away from the Skylanders Giants display in Walmart. He was transfixed by what he saw. He knew that the game was released on October 21…but his “mean” mother wouldn’t take him to Toys R Us on Sunday…and you can bet that he has asked me why I didn’t take him on Sunday MANY times. As I said he is the Ultimate Skylanders Fan!

Here’s what I know about Skylanders Giants:
