Okay so I know there was an age of the amphibians, but what exactly did that entail? Like for reptiles they were huge, so were there giant frogs and stuff hopping about??

Not exactly. There was indeed an age of amphibians, and it’s known as the Permian period. It lasted from 298 million years ago to 252 mya. However, there were no frogs: frogs wouldn’t evolve for 50 million years to come, until the early Jurassic period.

Despite this, there was another, now extinct, group of amphibians that thrived. They were known as the Lepospondyls, meaning “husk vertebrae.” The most famous of these was the boomerang-headed Diplocaulus.
