Fans of the Skylanders video game franchise will definitely want to be tuning into this year's Macy's Day Thanksgiving Parade, as fan favorite, Eruptor, will be flying high above the NYC skyline for all to see.  Watching this parade on television before Thanksgiving dinner has been a tradition in my house since I was a child.  We love to see all the new floats, and can't wait to see Eruptor take to the sky. 

More About Skylanders & Eruptor

The award-winning, $2 billion Skylanders video game franchise debuted in 2011 with Skylanders® Spyro’s Adventure, which featured the Toys-to-LifeTM interactive figures, portal, and accessories and firmly established the play pattern that seamlessly bridges the physical and virtual worlds across multiple platforms. 

Fan-favorite character Eruptor, who will be flying high above the New York City skyline, hails from deep in the underground of a floating volcanic island that launched his entire civilization to the surface after a massive eruption.  He’s a complete hot head – steaming, fuming, and quite literally erupting over almost anything. 

In fact, to re-create Eruptor's smoldering physique, artists used more than 40 gallons of florescent paint and five barrels of glitter!"

The live broadcast of the Macy's Thanksgiving Day Parade will begin at 9 a.m. all time zones on NBC.

The newest game, Skylanders Trap Team, is now available at retail nationwide on Xbox 360 and Xbox One; PlayStation® 3 and PlayStation® 4; Wii and Wii U™; and a unique adventure is also available on 3DS.  Skylanders Trap Team also ushers in the complete console gaming experience on Tablet¹, introducing a Starter Pack that supports iPad®, Kindle Fire and Android tablets."

Stay tuned for a review of the new Skylands Trap Team game, which will be in my holiday gift guide this year!
