Lots of great and exciting fun coming to you this holiday season from Skylanders! Check out these holiday gift suggestions from Skylanders that are sure to “WOW” your kiddo this holiday season. The SuperCharged gifts are priced at every point to easily fit into your shopping budget.
Great stocking stuffers and gifts under $40!
Ready to “supercharge kids’ holiday wish lists” with special toys, Activision Publishing (subsidiary of Activision Blizzard, Inc) is offering a special holiday Skylanders SuperChargers character Missile-Tow Dive-Clops to hit shelf tomorrow at GameStop and EB Games! He has an exceptional “eye” for evil and the unique ability of slowing enemies with candy-coated missiles. The heavily armored deep sea explorer makes a perfect stocking stuffer, as the fun-loving character is all decked out in Christmas colors!
MISSILE-TOW DIVE CLOPS
Bio: Every Skylander celebrates the holiday season in their special way. For some, it means exchanging thoughtful gifts. For others, it means over-indulging in delicious wintery sweets. But for Dive-Clops, it means keeping the time-honored tradition of hiding beneath the Academy archways to shoot candy-coated missiles at his fellow Skylanders that pass by. In all fairness, he does hang a sign that reads “Ho-Ho-Ho… Lookout Below!”
Also available for the holiday season at Toys”R”Us stores nationwide and online at www.Toysrus.com is the premium toy line Eon’s Elite. The new line was featured at Toys”R”Us on November 29th and includes fan-favorite characters Slam Bam, Zook and Voodood, as well as a new set of heroes — Ghost Roaster, Boomer and Dino-Rang ($19.99 MSRP).
SKY RACING ACTION PACK
Last –but certainly not least – stocking stuffer suggestion is the Skylanders the second Skylanders SuperChargers Racing Action Pack, now for Sky terrains ($34.99 MSRP). Fans can take racing to new heights with Astro Blast and Sun Runner, as well as a Sky trophy which unlocks new tracks and modes. Astro Blast is “SuperCharged” to take on the bad guys in his Sun Runner spaceship, fully equipped with anti-gravity and speedy capabilities.
Skylanders SuperChargers Starter Packs
Another great gift suggestion abuzz from the Skylands, include Skylanders SuperChargers Starter Packs, now available for consoles and compatible iOS devices (Apple TV, iPhone, iPad and iPod). These packs are a huge hit and have been named to the Toys“R”Us 2015 Hot Holiday Toy List, the Amazon Holiday Toy List and Toy Insider’s Hot 20 Holiday Toys List. Hopefully, you didn’t miss the special Black Friday deals when the starter packs were priced at a very low $39.99 MSRP at participating retailers. If you did you still can find them now at Amazon.com for 33% off the suggested retail cost of $74.99.
Activision generously sent my son a Drive Evil Crazy Skylanders Superchargers Starter Pack, which I will be wrapping up and surprising him with on Christmas. What I love about these starter packs is they contain the video game, collection poster, new portal of power, 2 Skylanders SuperChargers characters, and 1 Skylanders SuperChargers vehicle all for one price. You get the best bang for the buck …so to speak. The game and figures provide hours of adventure fun with cool races over land, under sea, and through the sky to battle Koas. Additionally, Drive Evil Crazy guest stars the very popular Donkey Kong!
