School is almost out for the summer in Michigan and keeping our 13 year old daughter Rose on track this year in 8th grade has felt like another full-time job! Rose is such a smart child but she is disorganized and forgets to turn in or misplaces her homework quite a bit. My husband and I decided to reward Rose for good grades and no missing/late assignments - after all, don't we as adults get bonuses and perks or rewards at work when we do a good job? We emphasize to Rose that school is her job and a job well done gets rewards and there are also consequences for not doing your job.
Rose is crazy about Skylanders! She has the Skylanders Swap Force, Trap Team and SuperChargers platforms. Why not motivate our kids and reward them for a job well done with some of their favorite toys like Skylanders? Skylanders SuperChargers have two new characters available - Thrillipede and his signature SuperCharger vehicle, Buzz Wing, are now available on store shelves.
THRILLIPEDE (Available now at all major retailers for a SRP of $12.99):
Thrillipede is a war hero with incredible piloting skills… and even more incredible juggling skills. Thrillipede served in the Millipede Military in the outer regions of Skylands. As the top pilot in his unit, Thrillipede was responsible for single-handedly blasting over 300 Greeble warships out of the sky! When the Great Greeble War came to an end, he returned to his hometown of Flutter Bay as a celebrated hero. He was the talk of the town and everyone wanted to shake the many hands of the famous young pilot. News of his heroics eventually made their way to Captain Flynn at the Skylander Academy, who set out to determine if the stories were true. In a series of friendly challenges, the two pilots raced, soared through obstacles, and performed incredible stunts in front of a cheering Flutter Bay crowd. In each event, Thrillipede stood victorious, and was asked to join the Skylanders shortly after. Of course, Flynn later admitted that he “let him win” so that Thrillipede wouldn’t be embarrassed in front of his hometown.
BUZZ WING (Availability: now at Toys ‘R’ Us and will be at all major retailers starting in June - SRP of $14.99):
Buzz Wing is Thrillipede’s famous fighter plane. After heroically blasting over 300 enemy jets in the Great Greeble War, it was put on display in the Millipede Museum. But with Kaos on the loose again, it’s back in action and ready for more!
Skylanders are definitely parent-approved and most certainly kid-approved! They would make a great reward or gifts for your children or grandchildren for good grades, chores being done without being asked, a rainy day surprise - the possibilities are endless!
