Do you have a kid who's really into Skylanders?  Are you really into Skylanders?  Do you say your kid is really into Skylanders even though it's really you who's into Skylanders?  Any way you put it, fans in New York can celebrate the New York Toy Fair with Skylanders Giants by having the chance to receive a figure months before its official North American release.

On Tuesday February 5th, kids and their families can receive  the Skylanders Giants character Ninjini months before he hits retails shelves.  All they have to do is be among the first to line up at the Toys 'R Us in Times Square while supplies last to receive the figure.  On top of that, consumers can also take advantage of one-day exclusive store offers at the Times Square location, including buy two get one free Skylanders Giants figures and $25 off the Skylanders Giants Starter Pack, as well as meet their favorite Skylanders characters, experience the game in-store, and participate in other giveaways.

The activities and giveaways begin at 4pm, while the Toys 'R' us itself is open during normal business hours (10am - 10pm).
