Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles Glow Friends Leonardo Review (Jakks Pacific)

Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles Glow Friends Leonardo
What It Is

Leonardo is using turtle power to light up your bedroom with the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles Glow Friends Leonardo. This six-inch toy version of Leo still wears the character's blue face mask and even has a turtle shell with his katana swords, but it's a rounder, roly-polier version of the superhero and it lights up. Tap Leo once to make it light up white. Tap Leo again to make the light change colors. You can even tap Leo a third time to hear fighting sound effects as the light continues to glow and change colors. In all three modes, the lights will stay on for 30 minutes, but that's not clearly communicated on the packaging.

There is also a smaller four-inch version of the Leo Glow Friend that only has the light-up feature and no sound. It is sold separately.

Is It Fun?
Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles fans will like collecting and playing with one of their favorite Turtles through this cute toy. The light-up feature looks really cool, especially when viewed in a darkened room, and the sound effects just enhance the imaginative play. While this will be fun for kids to play with, and easy for them to activate, the lights do a good job of acting as a nightlight in any Turtles fan's bedroom. This might help little kids feel a bit braver at bedtime knowing that Leonardo is on guard.
Who It’s For
The Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles Glow Friends Leonardo is for ages 3 and up. Young fans of the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles will like the round shape of this Leo toy and how easy it is to make Leo light up and play sound effects. It will be a nice nightlight in a Turtles fan's bedroom, and even older TMNT fans might want to collect this fun Leo as part of their Turtles collections.
What To Be Aware Of
