For several years, it’s been my honor and pleasure to lead the Skylanders brand, where we work as a team to deliver new magical adventures and a legion of heroes to kids around the world.

Today I want to talk about another type of hero.  These individuals also make a difference in their communities.  Like so many superheroes before them, they are often misunderstood or teased because of their particular abilities.  They see the world differently, and even though their surroundings can feel outright hostile to them at times, their very presence makes the world a better place to those special enough to know them and support them.

This year, together with Autism Speaks, we are proud to give these real-life superheroes a limited edition action figure line of their own – the Skylanders Power Blue crew for Skylanders SuperChargers.  Passionately created by our studio with the charity in mind and available in stores now, these four toys were made for some of our biggest fans in the world.  We hope our support for Autism Awareness Month and the Light It Up Blue program on April 2, 2016 reinforces our deep appreciation and gratitude for heroism in all its forms.

My team and I are very privileged to be able to create heroes for a living.  But to parents and loved ones who raise heroes, that’s something truly special.

Where can I find these ones for autism ? I have a little boy who lives for Skylanders trap team. In fact it was his 10th birthday yesterday and he did not want to have a party or cake. He did not want anything but skylanders. I know he wants the Knight Mare, Knight Light, Luninous, Spotlight and Blackout but we cant find them in any store or online for under $100. I have not heard of one for autism and I am pretty sure that my son Tyler has not either. Im betting that if I was able to get this special light it up blue for autism he would feel very important and speical because he has autism. Is this a spiecal order product? Id love to share this info with my sons ASD classrom teachers so his classmates (also have ASD) can get one as well. Thanks SO MUCH !!
