A huge range of officially licensed Skylanders merchandise is landing in toy retailers in time for Christmas.

Dress-up expert Rubie’s has produced Spyro and Trigger Happy costumes, while MV Sports has developed a line of bikes, scooters and skateboards.

There’s also puzzles and blind bag products from Mega Brands on the way, posters from GB Eye and other licensees on board with products, including bags, wallets, stickers, calendars and trading cards.

MV Sports’ Phil Ratcliffe told ToyNews: “The revolutionary concept of combining toy and ­­­video game is a hugely compelling one, and consequently, boys all over the UK are hungry for Skylanders merchandise.”
