Summary: I will start by saying, I am an adult who started off buying skylanders for my little cousin who had never played b4 I introduced him to them. Started off w/ Swap Force cuz that was the new 1 at the time & we got it for an insanely low price for a just released starter kit.
Summary: The glow in the dark edition is the one you got to buy if you are considering getting Skylanders Giants. Besides the glow in the dark character, the portal also emits light from the sides. Not just the top.
Summary: What can you say about this? It is what my kids wanted, the glowing platform looks cool at night without the lights on, and now they can keep pestering me to by more Skylanders stuff... Everything on this was just like I thought and my kids loved it.
