Summary: I wanted to buy a Skylanders set for my son's 8th birthday that would not break the bank. The newer sets were around $60. With this one costing half that, I figured I couldn't go wrong. My son had the biggest smile on his face when he opened his present and saw Skylanders. He loves it and plays it all the time. Now I only have to sell a kidney to buy the supplemental figurines. :/ Yikes!
Summary: I was unfamiliar with Skylanders until this purchase. It is a neat system, but you have to learn and be careful of which Skylanders go with which game before you spend all the money! Otherwise, items seem to be sturdy, and my kids are loving it!
Summary: My 8yr old daughter loved this. We intend on buying her more characters. She hasn't had much experience with using the hand held controller on xbox 360 as we usually use it for Kinects games that involve jumping or running but she had no trouble with this game at all. Loves it!!
