We are Skylanders super fans. The boys know all the characters and their powers, and can often be found pouring over a Skylanders guide, learning more about the “history” of Skylands. I love the depth of the storyline and that the characters are not realistically violent. And, let’s face it – I am pretty sure Skylanders played a huge part in teaching my oldest son to read. This year, the boys have one big item on their wish list this year – Skylanders SuperChargers. We’ll have it ready for them, but also wanted to included some unexpected Skylanders gifts under the tree.
One thing that I love about the Skylanders brand is that they are always evolving. Each version of the game (Spyro’s Adventure, Giants, Swap Force, Trap Team, and SuperChargers) has its own spin.
The newest installment – Skylanders SuperChargers added vehicles (AHHHH!!!!!!) and my car-loving boys can not get over their luck! This game has the regular Skylanders “explore the world” mode and a “racing” mode where they can show off their driving skills.
Another cool thing about Skylanders is that all of the figures from the previous Skylanders versions will work with the new game (though new figures will not work with the old games). So, if you have previous versions of the game, you don’t HAVE to stock up on additional characters. However, you will want to – the characters and vehicles in SuperChargers are so unique! I am seeing SuperChargers as low as $34.99 at several retailers for Black Friday, so now is the time to grab it!
