So during a moment of last-minute panic buying earlier this week, I almost succumbed to the old pay-way-too-much-for-an-annual-in-a-bid-to-bulk-out-the-stockings trick. And I am glad now that I didn't, because the Skylanders Official Annual 2015 is just £1 at Amazon right now!
Normally £7.99, you can now add one to your basket for just £1 which is pretty blooming bargaintastic by anyone's standards.
This item is eligible for Prime too, so if you're one of those lucky ones then you won't need to spend a penny on delivery either! If you're not a Prime customer you'll either need to buy 10 of these for lots of little Skylanders fans, or add some other items to your order to make it up to a tenner, at which point delivery will be free.
The reviews are pretty great too. A total of 11 customers have rated this an average 4.9 out of a possible 5 stars, with 10 of them giving it the full 5 stars. Listen to this:
"I use this book to drag my 7 year old son away from the PlayStation. After the initial kicking and screaming he looks through this book and realises he can work through the activities or read the stories, most of all have a break from screen time. The best way I found is to let him play through one or two activates at a time. The book contains some of the Trap team Skylanders so it is pretty up to date. If you do want to go through the whole book it could probably be done in a day, but with my boy’s attention span breaking up the activities works best for him."
Sounds pretty excellent to me!
