No it isn't; it's about standard for "sales" price at Anaconda or Ray's. Btw Anaconda now owns Macpac; I'm pretty certain this is the same...

Depends on the kids; I play this with my 6 yo, though he doesn't always get the more strategic elements, but still has fun (you can play...

I don't know if they're 240v or 12v. 240v don't need a transformer at all. 12v do; older halogen transformers typically won't with with led...
