GIZORAMA - As a kid, collecting things is just cool. Baseball cards used to be where it was at. Then there was Magic the Gathering, Pogs, and Pokémon for kids and adults to geek out on. Skylanders Spyro’s Adventure was a toy/video game hybrid that was pure genius in terms of getting kids and their parents to buy into the collecting urge. With 40+ toys to collect, the developer Toys For Bob and publisher Activision had turned a storied but near dead franchise into a money maker. Like all things collectible, the new series of toys are out and a new video game to go with them has arrived in the form of Skylanders Giants. While not fundamentally different than Spyro’s Adventure, Giants brings a more polished product that should delight collectors.
