When it comes to gaming this holiday season, Activision has an excellent line-up for gamers of all ages! Video games are a bit hit in my home and an activity that my kids love to participate in as much as they can. Below are a few of our holiday favorites this year!
This game has created the toys-to-life craze for years and this time has outdone anything presented to gamers before...the ability to create your very own Skylanders characters! Skylanders Imaginators empowers players to unleash their imaginations by giving them the freedom to create characters plus still use and play with characters from previous games. This game features Sensei toys and characters including this year's guest stars Crash Bandicoot, Dr. Neo Cortex and Kaos. Fans can also create on-the-go with the FREE Skylanders App for select iOS and Android devices. This app offers the same in-game character creation tools plus the option to bring creations to life as a t-shirt, 2D playable card, or a fully playable 3D printed Skylanders Imaginators toy! Awesome!
