Skylanders: Giants builds upon the fundamentals of the first game, which merges a line of physical toy figures with a video game world. The game introduced over 40 new toy figures, some of which are more than twice the size of the original Skylanders cast in both physical and virtual form. The game involves connecting a physical toy to the video game console through a “Portal of Power”; whichever toy is used creates a respective character in the game. Toy figures from the first game are also forward compatible with Giants, although there are also new versions, called “Series 2”, which have more powerful attributes than the originals. A new series of figurines called “LightCore” was also introduced, which glow when put on the Portal of Power and have a flash bomb attack in-game. The game has a new and improved “Battle Mode” for head-to-head play, featuring more areas and gameplay options as well as offering a new variety of alter ego Skylanders.
The complexity. Determine your child's level when it comes to coloring. Some color books provide large coloring spaces making it easier for children to color the page, stay in the lines, etc. As the child gets older, their skill level for coloring increases as well, and the difficulty of the book may as well. Some coloring books come with written instructions, and other games, such as a dot to dot, or a maze. If you want to keep your child happy, and still challenge them, choose coloring or activity books in their range or level, and do not frustrate them with books that have too small of pictures, or too many spaces to color, or written instructions. Best of all of course are free pages that can be printed out at home any time you like. There is so much variety obtainable that as long as they have their pages and something to color with a child will never get bored. For many children, there is no greater gift they can give to Mom or Dad than a picture they coloured all by themselves. Inside or outside of the lines, any page coloured with love and happiness is a masterpiece. With a fairy coloring sheet it is even more wondrous! Here is a beautifully formed ethereal creature with pretty or flowing hair, a great outfit, gorgeous wings, right in front of you, and now there are decisions to be made. Now your heart is beating rapidly, your mind cannot help but search for the creative idea, as you choose your first crayon, or pencil crayon, or paint color, or even digital paint color. So now you have a color for what part of the coloring page? For the hair, the clothes, or is it the wings? As she is leaving, her final request is often for me to print a few more pages for her to take home or even a large batch so she can share with her friends when they visit. Of course, as always I am too happy to oblige. Especially as it's so cheap to print them out. Few things are so cheap but can still make a child so happy these days.
