Glow Crazy Review and #Giveaway






Have you heard about Glow Crazy? If not, I do have to say, Glow Crazy might be the perfect artistic outlet for for your little one.

Glow Crazy has several glow in the dark items that are for 3-12 year old children. 

We received the Distance Doodler and Glow to Go to review; the boys were SO excited!

Glow Crazy products use light from the Light Wand to make the glow canvas light up. The glow will last about 3 minutes and slowly disappear and then your child can have a clean slate to create again. 

Below is a picture of the Glow to Go package. This was our favorite of the two products....


This is the PERFECT bedtime toy, camping toy, and it is a pretty good night-time car toy. 

The Glow to Go case folds up and Velcros for easy portability. There is an elastic bungee and elastic loop to keep the light want with the Glow to Go... you'll always want it with you!

The middle flap is really a zippered pouch which holds stencils so you can create fun scenes on any of the four colors. 

Unfortunately is was difficult to get pictures of my kid's creativity, but we did manage to  capture this photo of a car stencil on our Glow to Go:


We loved that there were four, different colored, glow canvases. The kids could start in the beginning, then doodle on each canvas... once all were full of artwork the kids would flip back to the first and could start again! 

The only reason why I don't think this is a great in-car toy is because the kids figured out that the light reflects off mirrors and windows...it can be distracting if you are driving. This is a great product to have if you have to wait in a car at night, though!

I love that there are no marks left on my wall, no damage to my furniture or carpet, and my kids can have a fantastic creative outlet!

The boys really love the Glow to Go, we only wish we had a few more!



The Glow Crazy Distance Doodler was well received by the boys, but we ran into an issue. We received 2 reusable wall clings. I was happy to hear they were reusable, so I didn't have to commit to having a glow in the dark canvas on our walls. However, the canvas was so easily removable that it hardly stuck to the wall. The first canvas lasted less than 24 hours before it had fallen off the wall. Once the canvas had come off the boys quickly balled the canvas up. I did save the other canvas and we now use that by standing it up on their dresser- it stands up well because of the folds from being inside the box. Beside the canvas not sticking, the kids had a lot of fun making a ton of squiggly lines and scribbles with their Distance Doodler!

We also figured out that the Distance Doodler light wand is also a great cat toy. Really... our kitten thoroughly enjoyed running after the blue dot and the boys got quite a kick out of watching him!

The Distance Doodler can be purchased online for $24.99 at www.glowcrazy.com  with an exclusive free bonus pack including 1 Light Writer, 5 Canvas Wall Clings and 4 Stencils (just pay $5.95 p&h).

According to the Glow Crazy Facebook page there is a new product that was recently released, the Doodle Dome. From what I can tell about the product, it looks like it is a tent that has glow in the dark canvass inside! It looks really fun, and I can only imagine how much fun our kids would have with it.

Wanna have fun without the glow disappearing? Well head on over to www.glowtivitycenter.com and create fun art with the online Glow Games!
