Skylanders: Trap Team is an action-adventure fantasy comedy video game developed by Toys for Bob and published by Activision. It is the fourth installment in the Skylanders video game franchise and was released on October 2, 2014 in Australasia, October 5, 2014 in North America, and October 10, 2014 in Europe, for release on Android, Fire OS and iOS mobile platforms, PlayStation 3, PlayStation 4, Wii, Wii U, Xbox 360, Xbox One, and Nintendo 3DS. It is the sequel to Skylanders: Swap Force.
Skylanders: Trap Team utilizes a near-field communication reader platform, called the Traptanium Portal, that reads NFC chips located on the bottom of figurines. The figurines are then used in-game as playable characters. A new line of figurines, named "Trap Masters", have been announced. The Trap Masters, working with the Portal Master, must try to capture all criminals that Kaos has released from prison.

My boys have not played the other Skylanders games, so this is their first experience with the game and characters. My boys love adventure video games, and Skylanders does not disappoint. The story line is easy for even the youngest of players to understand and enjoy. The game play and animation is full of bright colors and every character is unique. This starter set comes with the game, the portal and 2 figures to get you playing, and learn some of the ins and outs of the game. This is a good guys vs bad guys game, but there is not any over the top violence like you see in a lot of the games now. the figurines and the portal are plastic, but made well so they will stand up to play and last through even the roughest little boys. My boys and my husband cannot wait to start adding to the collection with more Skylanders Trap Team figures!
