For ages 10 years and up:

Based on Activision’s, Skylanders game. It’s about bringing your favorite Skylanders toys to life, by bringing them into the game.  These toys are purchased separately from the game, but are designed to be part of the game, where you will be placing the figures on a portal.  There are starter packs which include  2-3 figures, action cards, other accessories, a Portal of power, and the Skylanders video game itself.
