I am being sponsored by Frito-Lay to bring you information about a fun voting contest, as well as offer a Skylanders Gift Basket Giveaway. All opinions expressed are my own.
In case I haven’t already made this VERY clear on my blog, my family is a Skylanders family. Each October for the past 3 years, a new Skylanders game has been released, and this year will be no different. We have been collecting all of the games, as well as many characters. My boys are huge fans, and their sister is starting to catch on too.
As you have been grocery shopping, you may have spotted special Frito-Lay 20-count variety packs with $10 off coupons for Skylanders SWAP ForceTM Starter Packs. This isn’t the first time Frito-Lay and Activision have partnered, but this promotion is pretty special. They are asking fans to help choose the name of a brand new Skylanders character to appear in the upcoming video game, Skylanders Trap TeamTM, slated for release in North America on October 5, 2014. I can assure you that my family will be getting our hands on the newest Skylanders addition, one way or another. My kids are beyond excited to help name a character for one of their favorite games.
Frito-Lay and Activision have narrowed down the nominees to three final Skylanders® character names to be voted on to become the first-ever fan-selected Skylanders Hero. I will be hosting a voting party with my kiddos and some other families, so they can enjoy Frito-Lay snacks while playing our current Skylanders games. I’d like to help one lucky reader do the same by offering a special Frito-Lay and Skylanders gift basket! Before I get to the giveaway details, here are the three SkylandersTrap TeamTM hero finalist names and their fan-submitted inspirations (in alphabetical order by hero name) are:
- “Bat Spin” submitted by Kimberly Josey from Charlotte, N.C., is a witch tasked with saving the underworld from trolls to prove worthy of joining the Skylanders heroes.
- “Flip Wreck” submitted by Noel Foster from Clearwater, Fla., is imagined as half-dolphin and half-shipwreck, unlike any Skylanders the world has ever seen.
- “High Five” submitted by Phylicia Nakamoto from Elk Grove, Calif., is the fifth son of the Royal High Flying Dragonflies. Famous for his great speed, this hero can fly higher and faster than any other dragonfly in Skylanders.
Now through June 13, 2014, fans 13 years and older can vote for their favorite of the three finalist names, and the winning character will come to life in Skylanders Trap Team™ Video Game. That’s not all!!! The finalist with the most votes will also receive a $100,000 Scholarship for coming up with the winning hero!
To enter to win my gift basket, fill out the form below. The giveaway will end at 11:59pm PT on 6/17/14.
