Special Skylander Partnerships, and Limited Edition Toys!
Skylander's are truly taking over the world! First they conquered our TV screens, and now they are taking over our breakfast cereal? Yes that's right, Portal-Masters can "now start their mornings by playing an interactive version of the popular Skylanders Skystones mini-game via specially-marked Big G cereal boxes. Beginning February 14th, General Mills will bring the fan-favorite Skylanders Skystones game to select Big G cereal boxes, marking Activision’s first entry into the cereal category. Available at participating retailers across North America, fans will find Skylanders Skystones packs inside boxes of Honey Nut Cheerios, Cinnamon Toast Crunch, Reese’s Puffs, Trix, Lucky Charms and more while supplies last. There are four sets of Skylanders Skystones to collect, and each set contains 10 cards, two of which are ultra-powerful “boss” villain cards that will unlock exclusive content in the free Skylanders Collection Vault™ app. Skylanders Skystones is a popular head-to-head mini-game found in Skylanders Trap Team and other previous Skylanders games." It is really funny because my husband and I were just talking about how kids don't know to look at the bottom of the box for a prize anymore! I am so excited to relive that experience with my son, and with a brand he so loves! I will be buying a box tomorrow!
Another major collaboration is the merger of Skylander's and Crayola! With the Amazing Color Alive technology, kids will have yet another way to interact with their favorite characters! "Children can activate the special Crayola 4D Experience™ through the Color Alive! app by aiming their mobile phone or tablet camera at the coloring page to bring their unique Skylanders drawings to life. The included Magic Crayon transforms coloring by activating special effects through drawing on the page in real-time. Kids also can interact and take photos with the coloring book characters. The Color Alive! app is available on iPad, Android and Windows smartphones and tablets, as well as iPod® Touch." To learn about Color Alive please look at our Toy Fair recap by clicking ****HERE****. We will also have a review brought to you by Crayola coming soon! (we are awaiting it's arrival any day now!)
Parent's looking for the perfect toys for Easter will find "the limited edition of fully playable, pocket-sized Skylanders Minis toys, Power Punch Pet-Vac and Eggsellent Weeruptor. This year, Pet-Vac is aiming to break the all-time Skylander record for number of eggs collected, while Eggsellent Weeruptor has disguised himself as a candy-coated egg, having been chosen as the mascot in the Skylands Annual Dragon Egg Hunt. Lastly, Portal Masters can now use the new limited edition Earth Trap, inspired by the Easter Bunny, to trap Skylands’ most notorious villains." My son will flip when he finds his in his basket, in fact I should be getting a move on purchasing them before they fly off the shelves!
