EDITOR'S REVIEW
OVERALL EDITOR'S RATING:
What It Is

It's glow time with the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles Glow Friends, light-up versions of your favorite TMNT characters. The four-inch Raphael Glow Friend wears the character's red face mask and even has a turtle shell with sai on the back, but this rounder and roly-polier version of the character lights up in two different modes. Just tap Raphael once to make the toy light up white. Tap Raphael again to make the light change colors. The packaging doesn't say this, but the light will stay on for 30 minutes.

A larger, six-inch version of the Raphael Glow Friend is also available and plays sound effects. It is sold separately.

Is It Fun?
This cute toy will be a fun way for Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles fans to collect and play with one of their favorite Turtles. The light-up feature looks really cool, especially when viewed in a darkened room, plus it's easy to activate. While this will be fun for kids to play with, 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 Raphael is on guard.
Who It’s For
The Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles Glow Friends Raphael is for ages 3 and up. Young fans of the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles will like the round shape of this toy and how easy it is to make Raphael light up. It will be a nice nightlight in a Turtles fan's bedroom, and even older TMNT fans might want to collect this fun Raphael as part of their Turtles collections.
What To Be Aware Of
