Jennifer Donovan, 5 Minutes for Mom contributor, and her 9 year old son are testing out a fun new toy. They were sent sample product to try out and she was compensated for writing this post.
My son is 9 1/2 and has enjoyed the Skylanders game for the Wii. He and his friends love the interactive nature of the games. When I heard about the Mega Bloks Skylanders SWAP Force™ heroes, I wondered if he might like them, and he does!
He’s at the age where he can easily put together a building set by himself, and honestly, I wondered if these toys — recommended for ages 5 and up — might be seen as too easy in his eyes. He liked them a lot, and I would venture to say a 5-year-old might need help or get frustrated unless he or she had a lot of building experience. Though it says “5 and up” another description says 5 – 15. If your son or daughter enjoys the game, they’ll enjoy these figures.
Build your favorite pirate with eight legs and no pegs, then swap bodies to create ultimate combinations with Mega Bloks Skylanders SWAP Force™ Wash Buckler. Control the forces of evil by building a magnetic robot hero, then swapping bodies to create ultimate combinations with Mega Bloks Skylanders SWAP Force™ Magna Charge.
These super-sized buildable heroes with special micro axises let you pull them apart and swap with other Mega Bloks Skylanders SWAP Force™ heroes. Create the perfect combinations to defend Cloudbreak Islands and stop Kaos’ evil plans!
When I received the sets, I gave him one to try out, and a few days later I asked what he was doing, and he had gotten the other set and put it together. Then he quickly tried doing what they are meant to do — SWAP!
