Skylanders Giants have officially taken over our home and i’m not one bit upset! It’s video games like the Skylanders Giants that have created fun family time and lots of laughter amongst our kids. We wanted to share the 5 reasons every kid should play Skylanders. Hear us out parents, promise it’s all good!
Back in November we learned many benefits to playing video games and with that we decided to become a lot more involved in the kids likes. Dad likes games so we had some insight but when it comes to preschoolers playing games well we have to be extra cautions with our choices and purchases.
1-Team Work– Skylanders has taught the kids how to work as a team. They know if they don’t communicate they won’t get far. Not only does the game have them each stay close but depend on each other to do certain tasks.
2-Motor-skills- Playing Skylanders requires eye-hand coordination like most games. The WiiU console allows play on a pad but still requires 2nd player to use a Wii controller and nun-chuck.
3-Limitations– The Skylander Giants have energy bars when they get injured they lose energy. If a Skylander loses all energy you are unable to play with the particular Skylander. The Skylanders must “rest” the remainder of the level before you can play with them again.
4-Childrens game– The game has no adult language and the violence is nothing more than what any action figure game would show. Expect children to learn to defend their Skylanders rather than start fights with each other.
5-Follow directions- This game teaches kids to follow directions. They must do certain things before a level can be completed. The missions are simple enough for preschoolers to understand.
