Summary: It was a good price and got here quickly, but it was described as like new and with the amount of scratches and worn paint areas I would have probably described it as such. Its fine for what my daughter wants it for though so, Good Enough.
Summary: My only complaint is the wii is kinda boring and the remote that came with it already stopped working not to mention all the accessories you need to get to go with the wii as an extra remote for 2 player games the wii motion attachment for the wii sports games. Umm lets see what else oh yeah rechargeable batteries and the charger for the the batteries then the kids want more skylanders.. Its just a big money trap that isn't that much fun.
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: Everything was as expected as to the Skylanders Giants and Wii unit/controls itself. I was disappointed that this model does NOT have the GameCube ports. Yes, that detail would have made a change in my decision to buy.
