Fun Toys for Kids: Glow Crazy Products--Playing in the Dark Will Never Be the Same

My kids were very excited to help me review Glow Crazy's Glow to Go.  This is a fun take with you glow in the dark toy.  The Glow to Go has four glow pads in fun colors and has an attached light wand.  It all folds in to a case with a handle.  There are even zippered pockets to hold the stencils that come with it.  Kids can use this at home, in the car, or anywhere it is dark.  With Glow to Go, kids can entertain themselves in the dark.

The Glow to Go basically opens like a book that velcros shut.  It is not flimsy.  It is nice that the light wand is attached so it doesn't get lost in the dark.  The glow in the dark effects don't last too long, which can be a plus so kids don't have to wait long to start something else.  We found the closer the wand is to the paper, the stronger the image.

I tried to take photos of this in the dark, but wasn't too successful with it, seeing that it was dark.  Also, my camera automatically flashes a light to focus in the dark, which lit up the page a bit.  But, you can get a general idea of how it works.

Glow Crazy also has a Distance Doodler pack.  This contains one lightwand and six reusable wall safe canvas wall clings (a total of 5 square feet), 4 stencils and a fun tip booklet.  Once again, apologies for the poor photos!

My kids (ages 5 and 7) had a lot of fun, both with the Glow to Go and the Distance Doodler.  What kid wouldn't love to write on the walls?  I am also happy that they will have something to entertain themselves with when traveling at night (my kids will only watch so much TV in the car before they are bored with it).  I think even younger kids, ages 3 and up, as well as older kids would have a lot of fun with these products.  I also feel that boys and girls would like this equally as well.  So, if you are stumped for what to get a kid for Christmas, this might just be the perfect gift!
