The Boychild Celebrated His Birthday on the Skylanders SWAP Force GameTruck

The boychild is obsessed with a lot of things and Skylanders is definitely one of those things. Matter of fact, I had no clue what Skylanders was or even looked out until my son started begging for the game while we were in a the store. So, you know that means I had to do some research to see what Skylanders was all about! So for those of you who are oblivious like I was, read below…

“Skylanders is “mixing it up” with the newest game in the award-winning, top-selling franchise.   Skylanders SWAP Force builds upon the success of the franchise’s signature gameplay and collectible toy experience, adding an all-new dimension to the “toys to life” innovation. The game introduces a compelling play pattern — dynamic swapability — that lets gamers transform 16 SWAP Force inter-action figures into more than 250 unique characters by swapping the top and bottom halves of the toys. Now, Portal Masters can mix and match characters’ powers and moves and experience an unprecedented level of choice never before seen in a Skylanders game. Fans also can play Skylanders SWAP Force with their entire collection of 100+ characters from Skylanders Spyro’s Adventure and Skylanders Giants.” Skylanders SWAP Force features new abilities – such as flying, climbing, digging, bouncing, or teleporting.

Still don’t understand?? Don’t worry it will all make sense later….

ON 10/13 the Skylanders Swap Force game was released on all major game systems and my son has been playing non-stop since he received his game.

To celebrate the release of Skylanders Swap Force, Activision teamed up with GameTruck to give children the ultimate Skylanders Swap Force Experience. So, I figured, what better way to celebrate the boychild turning 5 than getting him his very own game truck!!

How does it work, you may ask? You go to and sign up. You then tell them when and where you want to have your party and they show up with the truck, it’s really that simple.

Since, it’s starting to get dark very early, it was too dark to get a good picture. But essentially the picture above is what the truck will look like when it pulls up to your location.Skylanders SWAP Force GameTruck

The boychild totally freaked out when the GameTruck arrived. I must admit, I thought it was pretty cool myself!! There were 5 big screens throughout the game truck and every game system your child could ever want. The truck had the perfect seating for the kids to sit down and play! And even thought it was cold outside, you couldn’t tell because the truck is climate controlled.

The boychild and his guests were in heaven, I could barely get them off the truck to take a moment to eat pizza and sing Happy Birthday! The best part about the truck was it was suitable for kids of all ages!

These kids were in Skylanders Swap Force heaven! I wish this idea was around when I was a kid! Perhaps the best aspect for me was the fact that I didn’t have to man the truck. The GameTruck Coach took care of everything, which meant less stress for me!

Here’s are a more tidbits about the GameTruck:

  • The GameTruck is about 50 feet long and can easily fit in front of most residential locations
  • The GameTruck theater is designed to accommodate up to 16-20 gamers at once.
  • The Game Coaches will ensure that everyone gets equal playing time.
  • For the best experience, they encourage parties not to exceed 20 people.

I highly suggest getting this truck for your next event to get more information go here.

Disclosure: I was not compensated for this post, I was provided a complimentary GameTruck and game courtesy of Activision. All opinions are mines and the boychilds!
