Skylanders has been a bright spot in a depressed videogame category this year. As a result, there are high hopes for Giants, the product’s sequel. One factor that has made Skylanders such a hit for retailers is that kids want to collect the character toys that interact with the game. These characters store a player’s experience, and also can be played across videogame platforms, making them highly versatile.
