House Party: Skylander Spyro’s Adventure for Wii
Yes, it has been a VERY busy month at Bargain Sleuth Central with all the huge-valued freebies! Let me just say one thing about House Party. Sometimes they have pretty good house parties that I’m happy to be involved in, and then there’s something like this. This past weekend I hosted a House Party for Skylanders Spyro’s Adventure on Wii. Happy is an understatement.
This. Game. Rocks. It’s a video game but it’s also more than a video game. You also use action figures to help bring the game to life. The action figures are placed on a platform that I think looks like a horizontal Stargate. Then that particular character comes to life in the game. If you want to see Skylander in action, click here for a video.
First off, I was expecting to receive the video game and maybe some coupons for my guests. What I wound up with is the Skylanders Spyro’s Adventure Starter Pack which sells for around $70 everywhere I look. So, WOW! Nice freebie, I know! I’ve also heard that this is going to be one of the *hot* toys this holiday season and I can see why.
House Party also sent my guests some of the many characters. available. One person went home with a cool poster featuring all the characters while my son absconded with the other poster. The other neat thing is that the kids can play with the action figures when they’re not playing the game.
Everyone at the party had a great time. I really enjoyed the game, the parents and kids at the party enjoyed the game, too. The only negative about the party is that I couldn’t squirrel this thing away as a Christmas gift for the kids. However, I am going to get the Target-exclusive figurine that I saw in the store last week. Can’t say enough about it!
