Video games play a big part in kid’s lives these days and the hottest game on store shelves is Skylanders: Spyro’s Adventure. We’ve been playing this since Santa slipped it under our Christmas tree and it is a ton of fun.
The game uses these small action figures to determine the character you play in the game. Place the figure on the “Portal of Power” and the figure’s digital version pops up in the game. The best part is that it really does work. Our 4-year-old loves to swap the characters in and out, and the game has always been able to keep up, without any glitches or crashes. It’s almost as if the game designers used kids to test it!
Skylanders is a great game for the young ones and us parents to play together. When you hit a difficult part in the game, just pop out and let junior handle it.
