Skylanders and Autism Speaks have partnered for Autism Awareness Month and will release limited edition toys to raise awareness for the cause. Leading into World Autism Awareness Day on April 2, the collaboration invites fans to “Light it up Blue” to support kids and families worldwide.
The “Power Blue” Skylanders SuperChargers toys are blue and white to reflect Autism Speaks’ official colors. The new series will feature Splat, Trigger Happy, and their SuperCharged Vehicles Splatter Splasher and Gold Rusher, which will appear in the game in blue and white colors. The toys are on store shelves now at participating retailers in the U.S. and Europe, and will be available starting April 1 in Canada.
In recognition of World Autism Awareness Day, employees of Activision Publishing Inc. will have the opportunity to participate in the Autism Speaks Walk on April 2 at the Rose Bowl in Pasadena. Activision Publishing is also launching employee education and employee-donation programs as well as donating to non-profits that make a difference in the autism community.
