Miles and Zoe love Skylanders, so much so that when they met the actor that does the VO for the captain they recognized his voice. Patrick Warburton was really a great guy and very good with kids. Skylanders has been in our house for years and this year we’re celebrating Easter with them the Trap Team and the new Trap Team Easter Toys.
Eggsellent Weeruptor was chosen as this year’s official mascot for the Annual Dragon Egg Hunt! Being new to this time honored tradition, he disguised himself as a candy-coated egg and proceeded to capture Spyro, Cynder, and Drobot within a Traptanium basket… sort of missing the point of the occasion. But what he lacks in point-getting, he more than makes up for in “Eggsellence!”
Power Punch Pet-Vac was the greatest, most daring flying ace in all of Windham. He was given his magical wings when he was young, as was the tradition for all Air Barons. But when his homeland was raided, he chose to sacrifice his wings to a young mother so she could fly her children to safety. This act of nobility caught the attention of Master Eon, who sought out the young Air Baron and presented him with a gift – a powerful vacuum device that would allow him to soar through the skies once again. Jet-Vac accepted the gift with gratitude, and now daringly fights evil alongside the other Skylanders.
The Bunny Earth Trap is one of the most unique Traps of the bunch and features a cute bunny-themed design.
I let the kids help with their own baskets this year. They had a lot of fun making them. Zoe decided to put the packages in and she arranged them herself, while Miles opened each package and placed them in his basket. He told me that more would fit in that way.
After letting both of them make their own baskets I decided to make one more final basket to show how amazing it can look.
The Trap Team
With Skylanders Trap Team, players can take characters out of the game and place them into physical “Traps” that kids can take with them, effectively bringing Life to Toys. In Zoe’s words the Trap Team game is awesome. You can play with two or one character and there is a trap that captures them. They are stronger and really cool. Miles says you put them in the trap and you have an element key and you put someone that has that element on that spot. That’s all they learned from a commercial and reading the box, or playing with a friend. Because we just received the game ourselves.
OFFICIAL GAME PLAY:
In Skylanders Trap Team, you can play as a Skylander or capture Skylands’ most wanted foes and unleash them for good. It’s up to Portal Masters to find these villains and capture them inside the new Traps that transport the villains into the real world via the Traptanium Portal. Once trapped, players can return the villain to Skylands as a playable character. This exciting new play pattern gives fans the option to switch between playing as a Skylander hero or a villain at any time, creating fun and unique “tag team” gameplay.
