We Had A Blast At Our #SkylandersGame Party! @FritoLay @PepsiCo @SkylandersGame #Ad

    Last week, I shared with you all that we would be hosting a Frito-Lay and Skylanders home gaming party.  Frito-Lay and Activision recently gave families the chance to choose and name a new Skylanders character which will appear in the upcoming video game, Skylanders Trap Team™.  It’s not every day that our boys have the chance to vote for the first-ever fan-selected Skylanders Hero!

    Family parties in our home are very special occasions because it allows us to spend quality time with one another and to share common interests.  In this case, since we are huge Skylanders fans, we are thrilled to be voting for our favorite hero finalist!

    Fans 13 and over can VOTE for their favorite next Skylanders Game character all day, since voting ends today, from the three Skylanders Trap Team™ hero finalist names and their fan-submitted inspirations.  They are:

  • “Bat Spin” submitted by Kimberly Josey from Charlotte, N.C., is a witch tasked with saving the underworld from trolls to prove worthy of joining the Skylanders heroes.
  • “Flip Wreck” submitted by Noel Foster from Clearwater, Fla., is imagined as half-dolphin and half-shipwreck, unlike any Skylanders the world has ever seen.
  • “High Five” submitted by Phylicia Nakamoto from Elk Grove, Calif., is the fifth son of the Royal High Flying Dragonflies. Famous for his great speed, this hero can fly higher and faster than any other dragonfly in Skylanders.

    During our party, we had the chance to enjoy some snacks from the Frito-Lay Flavor Mix 20-count variety pack which, for a limited time, are offering $10- off coupons for Skylanders SWAP Force™ Starter Packs!  It was so exciting to see our boys using their imaginations and embarking on new adventures with the Skylanders and the SWAP Force.  They were able to mix and match their SWAP Force characters’ tops and bottoms to create their own epic battles.

    As you can see from our photos, we had an awesome time together and what made the evening so special was having Skylanders to foster our sons’ creative sides and encourage pretend-play.  Also, no party can be complete without some Frito-Lay and Pepsi fun snacks and beverages.  Be sure to vote for your favorite finalist Skylanders character by VOTING HERE!

    Last but not least, we would like to congratulate Patricia Egbert!  She is the winner of our giveaway Gift Basket containing a Frito-Lay multipack of snacks and Skylanders items. It is the perfect prize to host their own Skylanders Gaming Party!

Let’s Discuss:  What are your must-have items for hosting a Skylanders Gaming Party in your own home?
