Long Gone are the days when children collected just stickers for their sticker books, children now have so much more variety when it comes to collecting stickers and trading cards.
Topps kindly sent me a collection of just some of their Trading cards that can be bought in stores now for £9.99.
Jake is a huge trading card collector and when Skylanders brought out trading cards. I thought he was going to burst a blood vessel with excitement.
So, Imagine how happy he was to find Topps Trading Cards had not only sent us a limited edition collector’s binder but also the latest Skylanders Giants Trading Cards Tin to review. Along with this we are going to tell you are thoughts on the Skylanders Collectors binder too.
Skylanders Giants Trading Card Review.
Skylanders Trading Cards Binder
The Skylanders Giants starter pack priced at £4.99. These cards come with a special Skylanders collector Binder, guide and 6 cards plus 1 very special Limited Edition card.
The card can not be found in any normal packs, so for a collector this starter set is a must.
The Skylanders Binder is filled with see through pouches with individual sleeves to fit every card in the collection inside.
I can imagine it must look pretty impressive when filled with the brightly coloured & well illustrated cards that are available.
The collector’s guide which comes with the binder opens up into a giant poster showing every card that can be collected from the basic cards to the rare lightcore Skylanders giants characters.
You will definitely know when your child has found one of these rare cards as I did, when I heard Jake shouting & screaming from another other room that he had found one of the best cards in the series.
I watched him carefully place his card in the Binder to display them with pride.
The collector’s guide also has a Skylanders Quiz just for fun to test their Skylanders Knowledge.
The card packs can be purchased from major toy-stores, newsagents and some supermarkets retailing at around £0.75 pence per pack.
Skylanders Giants Trading Cards Tin
The Skylanders Giants Trading Cards Tin comes with an exclusive card Limited Edition Dark Spyro, this is different from the skylanders binder. In the Skylanders Giants Trading Cards Tins you will get the following things.
- 35 Skylander Giants Trading Cards
- 1 Skylanders Giants Dog Tag
Unfortunately you do not know which dog tag you will when selecting your packet, so choose wisely! It could cost quite a bit of money if I am honest! Albeit, if you your children have any friends they could swap between themselves to get the set, so all is not lost.
