Be it Mini Boglins, Barcode Battlers, or Tamagotchi, I was all about newfangled silliness that were manufactured purely to be collected in their hundreds. Skylanders reminds me of that, I can't help but feel suckered in. 

Even the designs, stuck between edgy and cute, remind me of an era where Monster In My Pocket littered the shelves at Woolworths. I can't help being strangely excited for it.
