Here are some pretty cool facts about Skylanders and Skylanders Giants.

“We began something very special with Skylanders and the magic of bringing toys to life through a video game,” said Eric Hirshberg, CEO, Activision Publishing. “But it’s not just about the game. We know the toys have to be just as creative and imaginative as the kids that play with them, and that’s why we’re so excited to bring even more innovations — like dynamic swapability — to this genre when Skylanders SWAP Force™ comes out in October.”
Skylanders Spyro’s AdventureTM and Skylanders Giants were developed by Toys For Bob, and Skylanders SWAP Force is being developed by Vicarious Visions. The games are rated Everyone 10+ by the ESRB. For more information, visit www.skylanders.com
