seems like I saw them at our Disney Store for like 6-8 bucks. My DD wanted those when we were at WDW, but when we let her hold it to test it out the first thing she did was put it up to her sister's head and knocked her a few times before we could grab it to make it stop spinning. It was pretty hard!! So if you have little bitty ones BE CAREFUL !!! ;)

I know the outlet stores had them for around $5 and I bought a few at the school sale I went to last year for $1.

I bought pooh light chasers on disneydeals for $4 each! The price tag shows the original price to be $12.

I bought several at the Disney Store before our trip, but they were not any cheaper there(I may have saved a dollar or so each). I bought a Spiderman lightchaser at Walmart last year before Christmas for my nephew($6), and gave it to him to use in Epcot. My brother really appreciated me also giving him extra batteries!

Sometimes they go on sale at the Disney store. If you are considering other options, I've seen glowsticks at the dollar store. I've also seen those fiber optic light up toys at the dollar bins at Target (they really are pretty cool). For girls, you might also consider a light up wand. The ones Disney is selling online for Halloween are pretty cool (at least the Tinkerbell one is very cool) It is different from the one thay have in the store.

Ditto that...My dd got one at Monster's Inc. on Ice when she was 3 and got it a little too close to her hair and got it stuck! We had to cut a big chunk out to free her since the hair had gone all the way down into the spinner. We actually contacted the manufacturer to just let them know since we didn't know if there was a defect with the one we had or if it was a risk with all of them and they were very nice; sent us shipping materials to send it back for them to check (it was defective) and sent us a huge box filled with all the Monster's Inc. toys from the show!!!!!

She wants nothing to do with them now:) We get glow sticks only!

I was at our Dollar General today and they had a very plain version ( red & blue) for $1.50 each. The ones at Walmart are a lot nicer but I think they are $4.99 each.
