I am so jealous of all you New Yorkers right now. You have the opportunity to attend a Skylanders Giants event in Times Square tomorrow and I don’t. It is so not fair. I want to go and make a fool of myself, perhaps getting a free Ninjini in the process, tomorrow too! But it is not to be. Only people in New York can visit the Times Square Toys R Us on February 5, 2013 for a chance for fun.
Activision and Toys R Us are teaming up for a special Skylanders Giants event. It’s mostly about selling more toys, but is also about giving fans a chance to maybe get something special back. Starting at 4pm EST, there will be Skylanders Giants-themed activities for all kids at the Times Square Toys R Us. It sounds like people will be dressed as Skylanders too and of course there will be demo stations with the game running. There will also be a series of Ninjini giveaways.
Ninjini is the last, unreleased Skylanders Giants giant figure. She’s also the only female giant available. She’ll cost $15.99 when she’s officially released, but people who attend the event might be able to win one early. Her official release date hasn’t been announced yet, so I guess this could be considered a big deal for collector’s. If you want her, I’d suggest lining up outside the Toys R Us maybe right now, as it sounds like only the first people in line for the event will get her.
That particular Toys R Us will also be holding a big Skylanders Giants sale. There will be Skylander Giants Starter Packs available for $25. That’s the thing you need to start playing that includes the game, two regular figures, the Tree-Rex giant figure and the Portal of Power. Toys R Us will also offer its now typical buy two Skylanders Giants figures, get one free deal.
If you need directions, this Toys R Us is at 1514 Broadway at 44th Street in New York. Put that into Google and you should be able to find a route to get there safely.
