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 www.skylandersgame.com.
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.
