If you are a fan of Activision’s Skylander Toys and you’re looking to pick up something special, you will be interested to hear that Activision has announced that they will be releasing Special Edition toys designed for Autism Awareness Month thanks to a team up with advocacy group, Autism Speaks.
This is part of the Light It Up Blue campaign and will include four toys – Splatter Splasher, Gold Rush, and will also include two characters called Splat and Trigger Happy. The toys are currently available for purchase in the US and Europe, but for our readers in Canada hoping to get in on the action, sales will only begin April 1st.
According to Activision’s Josh Taub, senior vice president of Skylanders product management, “Since the debut of the franchise, we’ve heard from parents that Skylanders plays a special role in the lives of their kids on the autism spectrum. The entire Skylanders team was deeply committed and proud to bring these special toys to life. If they can put a smile on a child’s face, then we know we’ve done our job right.”
