Remember the Trix Cereal commercial that goes… “Silly rabbit, Trix are for kids!”?  Well that’s what I first thought about Skylanders until I played it. Skylanders Trap Team  is the latest installment of the awesome franchise from Activision and you need to check it out. I got the original Skylanders game for my son but soon found out that Skylanders – while definitely kid friendly as they come – is not just for the kids. Check out the numerous message boards where grown-ups are finding that Skylanders is NOT JUST FOR KIDS! It’s an action packed game that has tons of collectable characters that can be used in the game.

The latest adventure in this series explores the magical world of Skylands.  Skylanders Trap Team will reverse the magic and take characters out of the digital world into the physical world, effectively bringing life to toys. Basically, you can set traps and capture the game’s villains and then plays as them using their awesome powers and skill-set.  This game will suck you in and provide hours of fun regardless of your age. The game just hit store shelves nationwide in early October and is sure to be the top item on every kid’s (and dad’s) holiday wish list!
