Skylanders and Frito-Lay Join Forces Again
Company: Activision
Product: Skylanders Giants 3D Adventure
When Skylanders: Spyro’s Adventure came out, Activision got together with Frito-Lay chips for a promotion that resulted in four new figures, the Skylanders Sidekicks. Well, with Skylanders: Giants in full swing and Swap Force on the horizon, the two companies have teamed up yet again for a new promotion.

Not only are they bringing back the Sidekicks, but they have also released an app for iOS and Android devices that adds a bit of augmented reality fun to the shopping experience. Named Skylanders Giants 3D Adventure, the app will allow fans to scan specially marked Frito-Lay barcodes and have specific Skylanders appear on the screen overlaid on what the camera sees. From there, you can take pictures of the characters at the store and share the images over e-mail, twitter and text messaging. There is even a bonus piece of interactive content that is unlocked when all three barcodes are scanned.

The Sidekick promotion ends September 2, 2013 and like last year, the offer is only available on the variety pack bags. Use the links below to download a copy of Skylanders Giants 3D Adventure.
