Skylanders Trap Team Starter Pack Review

Powered by Mom bringsyou a Skylanders Trap Team Starter Pack Review

When you’re a member of a family of gamers you know what are THE hottest games out there, what kids like to play, what games parents prefer the kids play and what the adults like. Hence why the Skylanders Trap Team Starter Pack made it onto our 2014 Holiday Gift Guide.  This starter kit was a must have this holiday season, we’ve played the Skylanders Swap Force and Giants and they all brought endless hours of fun in our. The Skylanders Trap Team does not disappoint, my 13 year old daughter is a HUGE fan of Skylanders and is quite the gamer girl in general.

Almost every parent, aunt, uncle, grandparent etc.. has heard of Skylanders because children like my daughter keep talking about it. You can trust me when I say if my daughter says it’s an awesome game, other kids will not be disappointed.

Here’s what my daughter had to say about the Skylanders Trap Team Starter Kit:

Trapping the villains is AWESOME! The villains themselves are very cool but I like how you can hear the villains voice coming from the portal speaker when they are trapped. I also like the fact that when I trap the villain I can play the villain if I want to, how cool is that? The portal even reminds us that the villains are trapped when we’ve left them for a while, and they will crack jokes too.

The graphics are even better and I thought they were really good before! You will want to get (buy) more traps that are of different elements so you can expand the game. I like all the choices I have and so far I haven’t conquered the levels too quickly. I’m trying to convince my mom to get more characters 😉

You’ll have to get the Starter Pack to see what this is all about

No big surprise there is of course over 60 Skylanders kids will want to collect although my daughter did not collect more than 12 on the last Skylanders and she still had a tone of fun. From an adult perspective, it’s still a lot of good, clean fun with amazing graphics and is an engaging game that can keep the whole family occupied but more at a one player at a time kind of thing. We were fine with that as we haven’t quite caught up to our daughter yet!

Starter Pack includes: 1-Video Game, 1-Traptanium Portal, 2-Skylanders Figures, 2-Traps, 1-Character Collector Poster, 2-Sticker Sheets with Secret Codes and 2-Trading Cards.
