Summary: My kids, ages 4 to 9, LOVE this game. It's fun, colorful, has cute animations, and can narrate a story while the kids play. The Skylanders figures are very cool with some of them being interchangeable with others which gives your player different abilities.
Summary: It gets expensive if you want all the characters but this is a fun game and can be beaten with only the characters that come with it. It is easier for my six-year-old to play this game by himself than the lego games or most other games. It is fairly easy and doesn't really require any reading.
Summary: My kids love all the Skylanders games. They are great for young beginners. It's perfect for our 5 year old, and our 3 year old with a little help. Be aware that the game itself may be affordable, but the characters will cost you.
