Skylanders Contest: Win a Prize Pack!

by Holly Duce on April 13, 2012

Eric Hirshberg, the CEO of Skylanders Spiros Adventures came up with the idea for Skylanders Giants based on a poem his son wrote titled “If I Were a Skylanders”.  The poem also inspired a national writing contest to inspire kids and parents to work together to create their own Skylanders characters with special powers.

If you were a Skylander, what would YOU be?  Write a poem or a paragraph describing your Skylander for a chance to win a prize pack worth over $75!

More about the Skylanders game:

It can be a battle between parents and kids when it comes to video games.  Parents want their kids to establish real friendships and relationships rather than being glued to a video game.  Kids have a one track mind and just want to play video games all day.  There’s a new game that could work as a compromise. Skylanders Spyro’s Adventure reinvents the video game by combining real-world, virtual game worlds and online game play into one.  The starter pack comes with a copy of the game on your choice of format (PS3, Wii, XBox, or PC), 3 Skylanders figures, a Portal of Power peripheral, character poster, trading cards, sticker sheet, web codes and batteries.  You can collect and play with the Skylanders figures with your friends, then use the Portal of Power to teleport the characters and play with them within the video game.  With over 30 characters to collect, each with their own personality, powers and ability, kids can play the game time and time again, each with a different experience and outcome.  Each figure remembers shared experiences and leveled-up abilities allowing players to customize their characters as well as take them along to a friend’s Portal of Power for co-op play or arena battles.  Different challenges and mini-games are hidden throughout the Skylands making the journey into the mysterious world and mystical lands one worth exploring.  Skylanders Spyro’s Adventure starter pack retails for around $69.  Find out more about Skylanders Spyro’s Adventure at  

Some of our favorite Characters are Warnado, Camo and Wham Shell.  It’s a lot of fun collecting the different characters because they each do different things.  My son loves getting together with his cousins to play Skylanders for a fun and interactive experience.  They get so excited about the latest characters and each have their favorites.

If i were a Skylander I would be called Lightwing. Lightwing would be magic and have powers that resemble lightning spells and the ability to fly. Lightwing would resemble a hippogryph with a dark blue body and silver and black feathers on the wings and face. Skill upgrades would include calling thunder and making a lightining storm area of effect spell.

If I were a skylander I would be ….. – My name would be Guffry the spiky and I would be a fire eating gnome dragon – with very big scary teeth and a long spiky tail! I am always hungry and will eat everything and then I would burp really really loud! which is when the fire shoots out of my mouth!

Sheena April 14, 2012 at 1:24 am

If I were a Skylander I would have the ability to take on the powers of all the other Skylanders. After all, I am super-mom, super-student, and super-worker. I have to be able to do anything.

Tari Lawson April 14, 2012 at 8:14 am

I don’t know alot about Skylanders (I leave that up to my son…lol). If I were a skylander, I would be a plant. I would have a pretty flower with lots of thorns all over my stem (like a rose but a more unique looking flower in dark colors – think evil). My powers would include releasing a toxic gas and shooting my thorns. A hidden power would be vines that coult be used to entrap my opponent.

britney April 14, 2012 at 12:47 pm

if i were a skylander
i would be fast
with every breathe there was a blast
I would be purple spots and all
the evil doers all shall fall
I save skylands yes i do
Would you liketojoin me to?

Jen & Mason April 14, 2012 at 2:05 pm

My skylander would be awesome,
he would be so very tough
He would be a tiger
He would fight until he had enough.

He would be the very best
he would win it all
the others wouldn’t know what to do
they would all just fall

Heather Bridson April 14, 2012 at 3:13 pm

I’d breathe fire, fly, and have the power to disarm any enemy by spinning and making them laugh.

Trixie April 14, 2012 at 7:09 pm

My Skylander (that would be me)
would have really huge eyes to see
with spikes all around
she’d stomp on the ground
and all of the villains would flee

when she fights, she flits round and round
makes you dizzy when you hit the ground!

Darryl T April 16, 2012 at 10:47 pm

Randi K April 17, 2012 at 1:28 am

I would be in the Magic category and would love to be able to disappear, stun enemies with a ray of light, and take on powers of any other Skylander at will. I would look like a blue calla lily as to deceive my opponents to thinking I am a gentle Skylander.

YAhn April 17, 2012 at 1:43 am

If i were a skylander i would be fast
That my long list of things to do would be in the past.
I would look like water, clear yet with a hint of blue
Because i’m an ally you’d want to have because i’m so cool!

If I were a Skylander I would be Inferno. To begin with I am a fire type Skylander who can blast fire stars from my hands. I look like a warrior who has dragon marks around my face and my hair is on fire. I can also charge at people and when I touch them they light on fire. My soul gem ability would be to create a fire shield around me.
My upgrade path would be the fire star one because I like far range attack
Thank you for let me entering

Lucas E. April 18, 2012 at 9:45 am


Skylands was a peaceful and quit place with Eon as their ruler. That is until Kaos came to rid Skylands of the Core of Light. Who will save the Skylanders now? You can control the Skylanders on your Portal of Power. Who win win?…

Liz Terek April 18, 2012 at 6:02 pm

If I were a Skylander, I’d still be called Mom. I’d have the same abilities except kids would appreciate me because I was invloved in video games :)

Jennifer Hokanson April 19, 2012 at 4:31 pm

Supermom! I set of arms for each child!! :)

ger April 19, 2012 at 5:55 pm

If I were a skylander,
my powers would be invisible,
and certainly not despicable.
I would be like a fly on the wall,
truly hearing, everything and all.
Darting here, darting there,
my skylander name is InvisiGer!

Gianna April 19, 2012 at 6:32 pm

If I were a Skylander i’d be Wella.
I would have the power to heal.

Allison Lesley April 19, 2012 at 7:04 pm

If I were a Skylander my name would be Willow and I would have powers over all of nature. I would look very much like a mother earth:)

Blake April 19, 2012 at 9:08 pm

If I were a sky lander red as flame I would probably have the most fame. I will protect skyland from bad evil. I would fly like a dragon and shoot fire and never be a liar.

Benjamin T April 19, 2012 at 9:34 pm

If I was a skylander this is who I would be. His name would be BLADES. He would be an ice type. Unlike the other skylanders, blades can skate instead of fly. One of his first moves would be face off stick which he swings and hits things with. His other move would be puck shooter which blades shoots a puck at the enemy. His upgrading paths would be master stick handler and puck master. Blades colors would be white and blue. Blades is a penguin who was found by Spyro on an iceburgh looking cloud and was brought back to skylands. Blades has a V-shape of steel armor on his head and has ice shooters on his wings so he can freeze anything, even water so he can move across it. HIs battle cry when put on th portal ow power would be “Freeze” and “Chill Out”. His heroic challenge would be find all 5 keys to pass on through the gate that leads to a rock monster which he has to beat in 4 min. Blades would have full strength, 85 defense, 85 speed and 50 charm. Every time Blades shoots enemies with ice he can hit them and they disinagrate. I would really like to see blades on the game of skylanders!

I really enjoy the game! It is my favorite game and the only thing I ever play. You had a very good imagination to come up with it. Also, it is one thing I cannot live without, I think it is the most awesome game there is! I am the biggest skylanders fan there is. Also can you think about making my made up skylander into a real one on the game?

Cynthia Brinsley April 19, 2012 at 10:05 pm

Mine would be Muse. I would be a dominating dark figure with the ability to cast spells on other characters to confuse th

A dark evil temptress am I, is what you accuse
A soulsucking Skylander, I would be “Muse”
With powers beyond the knowledge of man
I use my brains to get out what I can

I’ll take your soul and follow with your life
A dark sided diva, not a preacher’s wife
I’ll take any enemy, no matter the size
But for real, I really want this prize!!

Deeanna April 19, 2012 at 10:19 pm

If i was a character in skylander. My name would be Monchi the fire breathing dragon. I would be pink and purple.

Cherise Kachelmuss April 19, 2012 at 10:19 pm

If I were a Skylander, I’d be called Puff Puff. I’d be part cloud/part dragon. I’d be able to fly, shoot fire and become invisible!

Nancy Bobbert April 19, 2012 at 10:27 pm

If I were a Skylander my name would be SkeleSpartan. I would be a Spartan warrior that is a skeleton. I would have a long sword and an awesome shield too. No one could defeat me!

Alicia S. April 19, 2012 at 10:28 pm

I’d be Turner..a tornado that wiped everyone out! I’d have the ultimate power to clear all the other characters out.

Carissa April 19, 2012 at 10:47 pm

I would be Eterna, a sapphire & amethyst colored dragon. My power would be control of all the elements (fire, water, air/wind, earth). I don’t know much about Skylanders, but my guys are crazy about anything video game related!

meme April 19, 2012 at 11:27 pm

If I were a Skylander
I would be sneaky like a cat
I would have night vision and wings like a bat
I would swim as fast as a turtle
but my name would not be murtle
I would have the ability to fly through the sky
and teach others they can do anything as long as they try
