Have your kids ever had something that you wanted to play with as much as they did?
I'm sure this has happened to you before. Your kids get something new and as soon as you open up the box, you're all completely fascinated. You want to grab it from them and start playing, but you have to control yourself and let them have it first. This is exactly what happened when we opened up the Glow Crazy Distance Doodler and Glow to Go.
I've never seen anything like the Glow Crazy Distance Doodler. It is so cool! You use a battery powered light wand with a special glow-in-the-dark reusable clings to create mess-free art over and over again. Just peel off the protective backing of the glow clings and stick it to any smooth surface like a wall, ceiling or window. Then grab your light wand and doodle close up or from a distance.
It can even be a fun way to help kids learn their letters or shapes before bedtime. Plus, this makes the most amazing cat toy too. I think we had just as much fun doodling on the ceiling as we did when we played with the cat.
The Glow to Go is the other product my kids tested out. The Glow to Go has four bright colored glow pads in a sturdy case. The color of the drawings is different depending on which color canvas you're drawing on.
I think this one was my favorite, because from a mom's perspective, it's very versatile. I love the fact that this light wand is actually attached to the case so that you don't have to worry about misplacing it. It's big enough to let your kids to get creative, but it's compact enough that they could take it in the car and use it on their lap. You can use it at home or on the road. Although it works best in the dark, we used ours during the day too, and it still worked really well.
I'm always looking for kids' products that will enable my kids to use their imagination or be creative in new and unique ways and Glow Crazy fits the bill.
