The Skylanders game is excellent. There are over 20 chapters to play either single player or with a friend, and there are also Battle Arenas. This game has kept my four year old entertained since Christmas 2011. The characters have been hard to come by as they are so popular, but each character has its own unique style and movement, with different attributes and a large selection of unique attacks to unlock. So with a small purchase of a new character it breathes new life into the game and keeps you coming back again and again.
The characters are sturdy and well made, and will not damage or break easily. As a figurine alone they are worth the purchase, let alone being able to play with them in game.
I highly recommend any of the Skylanders characters and the game!
