Older kids can be hard to please sometimes. Okay, maybe it's just my older kid. Kyle is almost 14, and often claims he is too old for toys. Unless, of course, they are related to things he already loves, such as video games. Kyle happens to love Skylanders Swap Force, so when I received these great Skylands Spinners to review, he was pretty excited. He doesn't have an arena to battle in, but he sets up mock battles in a makeshift arena in the black hole known as his bedroom. Hey, whatever works, right?
Anyway, if you're not familiar with Skylands Spinners, allow me to introduce you to these in-demand Skylanders accessories.
Choose your character and prepare to build, spin and smash your way to victory with the Skylands Spinner by Mega Bloks Skylanders SWAP Force™. Assemble the spinner, choose one of four interchangeable battle tips to match your battle strategy, place the character on top and launch into the Frost Guard Battle Arena! Direct the character with your spinner controller and knock your opponent out of the arena to become the Skylands Spinner Champion!
Ideal for ages 5 and up.
We received a couple of these fun toys to check out for ourselves. This is the Rattle Shake Skylands Spinner. As you can see, there is a character with a swappable body, a ripcord, and the spinning battle top. It also has a battle tip that allows the top to spin rapidly, making it perfect for battles.
Here is Rattle Shake in the battle top, ready for action. He reminds me of a reptilian cross between Indiana Jones and Crocodile Dundee!
This foreboding looking fellow is Wash Buckler. He looks like he is the terror of the high seas, and is definitely ready to defend. No, really...He has a pretty serious expression, don't you agree?
Overall, Kyle is loving these awesome spinning toys. He loves using the ripcord launcher and creating his own battle sequences. While these are recommended for kids ages 5+, I can safely say that Skylands Spinners are teen-approved, too. And for parents of teens, you know that's no easy accomplishment!
