Skylander Trap Team

I remember as a kid I used to play Donkey Kong with my brothers and it was so much fun. My oldest who is 11 loves playing video games so when I had the chance to do a review for Skylander Trap Team, I couldn’t turn it down.

We are a big Nintendo family so we played Skylander on the Wii U. Skylander is definitely not like the games I played as a kid. Wii U and the other very current gaming systems has taken it to a whole new level and added a lot more interaction to it.
My best friends son came over to help us play. He was so excited to “help” us. It was like he had played the game before. It’s amazing how quickly he knew what to do. I really do love the interaction, it isn’t just sitting there with a remote anymore. Now at different times during the game you have to get up and move things around, add traps etc. You can even switch characters by taking your figure off the portal and putting a new one one.
Starter Pack includes:
  • 1-Video Game
  • 1-Traptanium Portal
  • 2-Skylanders Figures
  • 2-Traps
  • 1-Character Collector Poster
  • 2-Sticker Sheets with Secret Codes
  • 2-Trading Cards

“Kaos has blown up the walls of the feared Cloudcracker Prison freeing the most notorious villains in Skylands. it's up to you and the Skylanders to find and capture them. using Traptanium, a magic material that can harness the power of the Elements, you have the amazing ability to trap the villains and return them to Skylands to fight for you! Begin the ultimate adventure as you explore Skylands in search of the escaped villains!”
I honestly have no idea who the figures are but I know that everyone loves them and they do look really cool. The starter pack comes with 2 figures but are so many more that you can get.
I played the game a little bit but had no idea what I was doing so I gave the controller back to the kids and had fun watching them play. It was so neat watching them get along, playing with each other and showing what to do next or a way around things.

If your child is into video games and likes Sylander, I bet he or she wants the trap team. It is so much fun and I bet you would have fun playing with them to. It really does become more of a family game than just a kids game. This would make for a fantastic Christmas present that your kids would get a ton of use out of. Not only does it work on the Wii U, but also a PlayStation 3 or 4, Xbox One, and Nintendo 3DSPlay You can find it at most big box stores like Target, Walmart, Best Buy, and of course Amazon.
