My son (we will call him Junior) is mad about Skylanders, and loves playing with the characters, both on the Wii, and just with the figures too. Many a deep discussion is to be had about the merits of each character and their powers. The plot, graphics and attention to detail by the designers are impressive. The characters have super-sized powers, puzzles to solve, with lots of levels to explore and discoveries to inspire his imagination.
When the chance to design your own Skylander character via the Tots 100 blogging network and win the opportunity to join the blogging Team Skylander, he set straight to work.
Let me introduce……….
Driller is a 4 armed, 3 legged Skylander with a spinning/drilling tail.
Not content with a basic info and drawing, Junior has given a LOT of consideration to Driller’s various powers. As you can see, he is an ethusiastic 8 year old expert (!) and would just love to be part of the Skylanders Team, reviewing and blogging about their new products.

My son would love some feedback on his design, so even if you aren’t as into Skylanders as he is, some encouragement would be appreciated!
To emphisize his love of all things Skylanders, can I just remind you of his recent birthday party when both the cake and the cup cakes all featured his beloved Skylanders. If you are looking for a true fan – we have one in our home!
