My two boys are big fans of the popular video game, Skylanders. This video game is actually one of the few video games they can play together. If you aren’t in the loop about Skylanders, here is a quick lesson. It can be played on a variety of gaming platforms, including Wii, Nintendo and Xbox. All total, there are 32 Skylanders characters, which are classified under 1 of 8 elements, which are Magic, Water, Tech, Fire, Earth, Life, Air and Undead. What makes this game so popular is that it interacts with the Skylanders Giants™ toy figures your kids have at home.
Because it is the first video game that combines the physical toy world with the video game world, it was rated as the most popular game of 2012. It is a very cleverly designed interactive game that will hold your kids attention for hours. My kids love everything about them and have collected quite the collection of figurines. You can imagine that they were thrilled to play with the Mega Bloks® Skylanders Giants™. Of course, Mommy was the one to put it all together, but it was fairly simple once I found the directions!
Teach Your Kids To Share Their Toys
Anyone who has kids in their house probably has a big container full of the colorful and ultra sturdy Mega Bloks®. Recently, Mega Bloks® made the announcement they were going to be releasing a new addition to their popular toy line on March 15th of this year. Based on the Skylanders video game, Mega Bloks® has created the Mega Bloks®Skylanders Giants™ Zeppelin Air Ship Assault toy set. Many kids, who, like my boys, love the Skylanders video game, are going to love this new toy set. If you have more than one kid who will be playing with the new toy, it gives you a chance to teach your kids to share their toys. Your kids can build the Drow Zeppelin Air Ship as well as the Eye Brawl, which comes with a detachable eye, which boys will love!
The box also includes the translucent green Greasemonkey Troll figure, who is not on the Skylanders side. The Drow Zeppelin Air Ship is trying to annihilate the Skylanders from above, while the Eye Brawl is trying to shoot it down with a cannon that really fires! The Eye Brawl’s goal is to bring down the Zeppelin so he can take over the Troll Greasemonkey who is piloting the Zeppelin. If your kids have other Mega Bloks® Skylanders Giants™, they can combine those with this latest addition to the team. MEGA Brands, which Mega Bloks® is under, has been a trusted leader in the toy industry. The construction toys, puzzles, games and arts and crafts products have been recognized many times for their innovation and educational value. You can purchase the Mega Bloks®Skylanders Giants™ Zeppelin Air Assault online at Mega Bloks® $19.99 as well as at Wal-Mart, Target and other retailers who carry the Mega Bloks® brand.
