@MegaBloks #Skylanders SWAP Force™ Heroes #Giveaway

by Jennifer Donovan

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.

Kyle Skylander Swap HeroMy 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.

Product Description:
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!
