Spyro is the purple dragon who is the hero of the hit video game Skylanders: Spyro's Adventure. When he was transported to Skylanders through the portal of power, he became one of the leading fighters for good in the entire game and a favorite of kids everywhere. The Skylanders Spyro Portal Action Figure is a soft, whimsical version of the original. When kids press its chest, they will hear Spyro say one of four different phrases. Spyro's dragon horns will also glow. Kids can also activate Spyro with the mini portal. Just press the portal and Spyro comes alive. The mini portal is a replica of one of the central elements of the Skylanders video game and the way the characters get into the game from the original toys.
There are several other Skylanders characters in this line, such as Eruptor and Trigger Happy, so kids can choose their favorite. Each is sold separately.
