I am very excited about the news that Skylanders Trap team is going to be coming to Tablets on the same day that the console version is being released. This news came out of nowhere for me. I had no idea that this was going to happen and it is pretty cool. The tablet version comes with a special bluetooth controller and a special bluetooth traptanium portal. Players can buy the Tablet pack and then download the app from their respect app stores. This really opens up the game to even more players. It is a great strategy for Activision because they’ll get all those causal tablet gamers, those folks who do not have a console but rather like to play on their iPad, Samsung Galaxy devices and even Kindle Fire.
Take your favorite stuffed animal and then draw on it. That is the premise of Inkoos. These cute and cuddly square/blocky shaped characters are made for drawing, doodling and just plain expressing your creativity. Eva and I received two Inkoos, a full size one (Dog) and a mini Inkoos (Owl). Right off the bat these guys are cute. They have a very unique look and have a lot of potential for creating something very cool. The large Inkoos comes with a set of three fabric markers and the mini Inkoos has one marker. In our review we received pink, blue, purple and green markers. The markers come with a clip so that you can always keep them right with your Inkoos.
A brand new twist on a family favorite. UNO is one very loved game and nearly everyone I’ve ever met has played it. If you are going on vacation it is so easy to drop a deck of UNO cars into your bag because you can play anywhere. Now UNO has an all new Wildcard. I’m happy to introduce my family to UNO Roboto!
Transformers for little hands are nothing new. A few years ago there was a line of Transformers called Transformers Go-Bots. These were Transformers for little kids. The thought was a great one, get younger kids interested in Transformers and make the robots easy to transform and fun to play with. The thing is, something was missing. There was not storyline with that set of toys and there was no supporting television show. I’m glad to see that there are now Transformers Rescue Bots. These are Transformers that are not only easy to transform but have a clear storyline and some recognizable characters in the mix. For example BumbleBee is part of this storyline and he is one of the most well loved and recognizeable Transformers characters ever, second only to Optimus Prime, who also happens to be a part of this storyline.
