What the heck is a “skylander?”

I don’t know if you guys make random visits to Toys r us. I am one of those people who do not have any kids yet, who actually do stop by on occasion to check out the latest awesome toys! For several weeks my husband kim and I have been spotting small tables containing cute little figures! They look like this!

We decided to pick these guys up, along with the game for PS3 (xbox360, ds and Wii versions are also available)

The game also comes with a platform. There are several characters available for purchase with different abilities. We turned on the game along with the platform, the first thing we did was place a character on the platform. The character then appears in the game itself! My first through was that this would be awesome when playing pokemon!

Anywho, the story is well written and it also has great in game character personalities. The dialog are entertaining and not at all annoying. The villain in this world “skylands” is voiced by non other than Space invader Zim himself! We go by a pool of water that we cannot cross, what we do is that we switch our Dragon creature for the fish one and voilah! We cross water!

We haven’t played much yet, maybe two hours, but we are entirely intrigued!

This game and technology shows much promise! I’ll keep you posted!

Activision, you’ve done it again!
