With Easter approaching, and yet another two week break from school for Dexter, (rocks slowly back and forth in the corner,) I decided that this time, I would actually take a few days off from work.  Now, as lame as this sounds, I actually really love my job so it was a tough decision, but the thought of Dexter’s face when I tell him where I’m taking him on Good Friday was too hard to resist.



I’ve mentioned before what a big fan of Skylanders Dexter is.  Me?  Not so much.  But then I’m a 42 year old woman, not an 8 year old boy.  Now, I have just found out that Skylanders just happens to be heading to my local Toys R Us store in Rochester this Easter weekend (I’ll list the dates of the tour below,) and I swear to God, when I tell Dexter I’m taking him to meet Stealth Elf (yeah, I don’t know who he is either but Dexter does,) it will be hard(er than usual) to calm him down.


Toys R Us are the exclusive stockists of the Skylanders Legendary range, including such Giants as the Legendary Ignitor, Jet-Vac and Slam Bam, as well as the exclusive Legendary Chill Easter edition character and over the Easter break, they will be creating a ‘legendary’ Skylanders experience at selected stores.   Praise the Lord, my local store is one of them.


So, if your child is as big a fan as Dexter is, why don’t you see if a Skylander is coming to your local Toys R Us store – there’ll be games to play, and plenty of things to keep the lovely little darlings occupied.  We need all the help we can get, right?


You can also download a Skylanders colouring-in sheet and, once coloured in, take it along to your local store with the best ones being awarded a selection of Skylanders prizes.
