"One of the Best Days Ever" Thanks to New Skylanders Characters #Skylanders #SkylandersGame

Are gifts just for special occasions?  No, sometimes you just have to reward your kids and make their day for just being awesome.  I think it's important to reward their everyday efforts, and not only because it's their birthday or a special occasion but just because.  And what goes well with them being awesome?  Some awesome new Skylanders characters.  After I surprised my son with Trap Master Enigma, Flip Wreck, and Fling Kong, he said it was one of the best days ever.  A few weeks ago I bought him the Skylanders Trap Team Starter Pack, something he has been wanting for so long, so some new characters truly made his day.
Every character with unique strengths, abilities and upgrades in the game - it's no wonder kids love them.  Besides, anything that makes my son's day and makes him want to make me a drawing to surprise me back..I love. 
Enigma (Trap Master)
Flip Wreck (Water) 
Fling Kong (Air)
I initially was hesitant to purchase the Skylanders game when my son wanted them, and I stayed away because of the prices.  I eventually gave in, only to get the Skylanders Giants game a try to start, and after some time became a fan myself.  I was turned off by the need to purchase more characters, but much to my sons delight, I quickly gained a new respect for the game and the many characters.  There's great quality and detail in every character, and unlike regular collectibles (that's expensive anyway) these you get to see come to life and give you more for your buck.  One of my favorite "collectibles," for sure.  My son loves these three characters so much he said, you'd have to really play with them to understand.  Check them out at Skylanders.com, where you can find out about all the characters and more.  Some of the social media channels you can follow them on are @Skylandersgame and Instagram.com/skylandersgame.
