Can’t find a Wii U for the kids this Christmas? Maybe a nice consolation prize would be the new Skylanders Giants Wii bundle being released for the holiday shopping season?
Despite being a last-gen console (or two generations old, depending upon how elitist you are about graphics), the bundle does come with the newest game in the Skylander series, the video game equivalent of peanut butter and chocolate as far as kids are concerned. For $150 you get a Skylanders Giants Starter Pack, with an exclusive giant figure and a Wii console and remote in a shade of blue that hurts to look at.
However, if you do go the Skylander route, don’t think you’ll be getting away with spending just $150, as there are altogether somewhere approaching 100 figures, expansion sets and items your kids are going to want for the game that fall between $10 and $25 a piece.
