- “Those weirdo Trolls have stolen an antique vanity and stashed it inside a tank. Why would the Trolls even want an antique vanity in the first place? Anyway, find your way to the tank and recover the vanity - FAST!”
Hobson's Choice is a Heroic Challenge in Skylanders: Spyro's Adventure and Skylanders: Giants. It is unlocked by Trigger Happy in Spyro's Adventure. It uses the map of the Battlefield and requires the antique vanity to be collected in under three minutes and thirty seconds.
Each section of the map has at least one enemy to defeat. When all enemies in a section have been defeated, two teleporters will appear; taking the correct teleporter will allow the Skylander to advance to the next section, while the wrong teleporter takes the Skylander to a smaller section with more enemies that must be defeated to return to the original two teleporters.
The final section of the Challenge has many enemies and a single Mark 31 Troll Tank. Defeating this tank will reveal the antique vanity, which the Skylander may then collect to complete the Challenge.

- In Spyro's Adventure, when two teleporters appear in a section, the camera will always center itself on the correct teleporter.
- The Skylander does not need to be in a section to make that section's teleporter(s) appear. For example, a Skylander that can throw projectiles over walls in an arc can defeat enemies in a section that he or she is not currently in; this will reveal the teleporter(s), even though he or she is not in that section.
