The toys-to-life game category has been growing steadily for the past year or so. In 2014, Skylanders: Trap Team was launched alongside rival Disney Infinity 2.0.

Then Nintendo launched its own Amiibo toys-to-life range, which are compatible with a select number of Wii U and 3DS titles.

The Skylanders franchise is still the most popular though, with more than 240 million toys sold so far.

However, Nintendo’s amiibo have been incredibly popular with collectors.
