Glow Crazy Distance Doodler and Glow Crazy Glow to Go: Great Glow-In-The-Dark Fun For Kids! {Review and Giveaway}


Want to have some glow-in-the-dark fun with your kids?  Glow Crazy Distance Doodler is a great choice for some fun family time... in the dark!  One thing I loved about these products is that they're not messy.  I hate messy toys with a passion!  I don't have to worry about anything leaking or melting in my car (in reference to the Glow to Go product).  They remind me of the Aquadoodle we once had, but without the mess of water or the wait to have the canvas dry before doodling some more.

Glow Crazy Distance Doodler:  The Glow Crazy Distance Doodler was something that my youngest enjoyed very much.  How it works:   You hang the reusable GlowClings on your wall (doesn't harm your wall) and use the Light wand to draw.  The GlowClings can also be cut into different shapes if you wanted to get creative with an easel for your child's glow-in-the dark art.  My son also enjoyed the stencil sheets that came with the Glow Crazy Distance Doodler.  What made this toy so much fun was that you could doodle from up to 10 feet away.  I can easily see us hanging a GlowCling on our child's ceiling instead of a regular wall, but I imagine I'll be confiscating the Magic Lightwand if he has too much fun and won't go to sleep.

Glow Crazy's Distance Doodler is for ages 6 and up.  

Tip:  Stencils make the Distance Doodler lots of fun.  Check out the Christian stencils on the GlowCrazy Facebook page.  Their first line of Christian stencils is a Noah's Ark theme.  Their second line, which launches on September 15, will include Christian symbols -- a loaf of bread, fish, and boat.

Glow Crazy Glow to Go:  This toy was the glow-in-the-dark choice of my 10 year old daughter.  What made the Glow to Go so much fun for her was that it was something that she could hold in her lap to doodle with in the car.  The handles make it so easy to carry too.  We took the Glow to Go with us on a trip back home to PA and my kids fought over it in the back seat.  Parents, save yourself the hassle and buy two!  What I liked about it was that though it glows in the dark, it didn't put off enough light to distract a driver or other passengers.  The kiddos can play tic, tac, toe in the dark or draw quietly in the dark.

Glow Crazy Glow to Go is for ages 3 and up.

Tip:  Use the wide beam to help the Glow Crazy canvas fade faster so that you can draw again.  Your glow doodlings will last about 3 minutes in the dark!
