Skylanders SWAP Force Review
My son is 6 and when he was at a friend’s house he got to play Skylanders Spyro’s Adventure® and he came home talking about it. It is October now and that was back in July but he hasn’t stopped talking about Skylanders and telling me the characters he wants for Christmas since! So when I heard about the new Skylanders SWAP Force, I knew he was going to be adding that on to his Christmas list.

My Kids Reaction to Skylanders Swap Force
My son is 6 and my daughter is 8 and I am not sure who loves the game more. I thought my son would be blown away but I had no idea my daughter would love it too! Usually with X Box, they get kind of bored after about 15 minutes and they only ask to play about once or twice a week. With Skylanders Swap Force, they are still playing after an hour while I am saying, “Turn it off, I said turn it off!” I like watching them learn to work together as a team while they are playing and they just love playing Skylanders Swap Force. Somehow, those characters just capture my son’s imagination and even when the XBox is off, he can just play with the characters for another hour!
