Summary: This is another example of a manufacturer trying to capitalize on a good product (Spyros Adventure) by getting kids to want the next version. My kids played this for a couple of days and then said they were bored with it.
The reaction of my grandsons when they recieved this gift made it worth it.

Summary: My grandsons (ages 10, 8, and 4) have Spiro's Adventure, enjoy it, and so wanted the Giants as well. I researched to find the most competive price and discovered that this kit was less expensive than the portal owners kit. I thought it would be good to have a back-up portal. I was surprised that the portal with this kit was corded as the one that come with Spiro's Adventure was cordless. The kids love it!
Summary: Beware the company the item is shipped from and go to their page first to read details. Although picture showed brand new in box and shipped by amazon, this item was from a third party and supposedly brnd new but not in original packaging. It may or may not be new but couldnt be gifted. Will update once I play the game.
Summary: It was a christmas present for my son, he rushed through it very quickly and now he has completed all the missions he is not interested in playing with it. It is just really the latest fad for children. It is not a cheap present and the giants you have to buy to go with it add to the expense, however my younger son really loves it so it is well used and there are lots of challenges and games to play as you go along the adventure.
Summary: I purchased the Skylander Giants Booster Pack for my 9 year old son for his birthday, as he had great fun collecting all the first skylander figures. When he played the Giants he was dissapointed as it was too much like the first game and only played it for a few mins. We have now exchanged it in town for something different.
