Christmas gifts? - Page 2

post #21 of 25
DS9:
--Lego police set (that's what he asked Santa for)
--Skylanders game for Xbox (he asked for Giants, but that was months ago and I think there's a newer version out -- can any gamers recommend if I should go with Giants or get the new one?)
--A few books & a DVD
--This Lego-type thing that uses light-up blocks (from his sister)
--A Lego watch (he's very into Lego!!)
--Lots of stocking stuffers

DD5:
--A Rudolph stuffed animal with a light-up nose (that's what she asked Santa for)
--A Sophia the First dress-up dress and tiara
--A few books & a DVD
--A Lego set
--A Hello Kitty wallet
--Something called Magic Doodle (from her brother)
--Lots of stocking stuffers

Now that I've written it out, I realize that she has one more gift than he does. Maybe I'll put the wallet in her stocking.

The new Skylanders thing is called SwapForce- I'm not entirely sure, but am fairly certain that some of the Giants will not work on the SF platform, and vice-versa. They do have it printed on the back of the boxes which ones are compatible with which platform, so you might want to double check before buying.

I found this pretty useful when working out which skylanders figures work with which game

http://skylanderscharacterlist.com/ It looks like things have moved on with the swap force game and the old figures & portals will not work.

 

After reading some reviews of swap force we opted to buy the giants pack. It seemed several people were having problems with the portal not always working, this was on the wii, but may be something to look at before deciding.

Thanks so much for the Skylanders help! This will be our first Skylanders anything, so there won't be an issue of compatibility in our house. I'll check reviews before deciding.
