I know full well that there are scientific explanations for rainbows and fireworks and shooting stars, but somehow that doesn't make seeing them any less mysterious and fascinating.
Similarly, items that glow in the dark have the same effect. There's just something about things that illuminate and shine when all else is in the shadows that is a bit enchanting to kids (as well as adults like me).
Which is why I find myself just as excited by the fun, intriguing, enchanting craze that Techno Source's Glow Crazy line can provide.
Designed for children ages 3 and up, Glow Crazy allows the user to have the chance to design their own unique glowing art with just a touch of a button. Great for car trips, sleepovers, anywhere in the dark and at nighttime, the Glow Crazy laser pen works up close or more than 10 feet away — simply point it, press the button and draw!
While we have had fun with the Glow Crazy Distance Doodler and the Glow Crazy Glow To Go in the past, as soon as I heard about the all new Glow Crazy Doodle Dome, I had no doubt that my girls would love being able to play in the dark anywhere, anytime of the day in their own portable glow art studio.
The Glow Crazy Doodle Dome is the ultimate in portable glow-in-the-dark coloring and comes with everything you need to get started with this innovative technology.
As I pulled the items out of the box, I was happy to see that other than installing batteries (two AAA that are not included) in the Glow Crazy light pen and popping open the Dome itself, there wasn't much to do to get started doodling.
After pulling the Glow Crazy Doodle Dome out of its convenient storage/carrying case and unfolding it, the girls couldn't wait to peek in and crawl inside to draw, write and play games.
By pressing the single button on the Glow Crazy light pen, the kids immediately were enthralled with the way that the light showed up on the dome's special inner glow wall.
Whether they were putting on a light show, creating their own artistic endeavors, using the included stencils to create cool glow scenes, making fun silhouettes of themselves or just about anything on hand, or just watching in awe as their glow creations appeared and then faded away, the Doodle Dome was an instant hit!
While the Glow Crazy Doodle Dome comes with a single Glow Crazy light pen, we had no problem adding in a second one of our own so that both girls could get in on the action at the same time.
In fact, the Doodle Dome proved to be just about the perfect size for the two of them to comfortably fit in to color together!
Allowing kids to play in the dark anywhere, anytime of the day in this innovative glow art studio, Techno Source has made their Glow Crazy collection an all-day activity with the Glow Dome.
While I do wish that more of the inside of the Dome itself was covered with the special inner glow wall so that there was a larger space to create art, the ease in which this item provides darkness for enjoying glow-in-the-dark possibilities really is a lot of fun!
Including one light pen, four stencil sheets, the Doodle Dome and a handy carrying case, this creative technology allows for individual or group play has had my kids returning time and time again to continue magically coloring!
Available for purchase at Walmart, Kmart and Toys 'R Us stores stores nationwide and online at Walmart.com, ToysRUs.com, GlowCrazyFun.com, and Amazon.com, the Glow Crazy Doodle Dome retails for approximately $19.99 (please note that many stores will have a limited amount in stock after the holiday season and the Glow Crazy Doodle Dome should be back in full-stock by the end of January).
And, thanks to the generosity of Glow Crazy, one person will soon be able to bring home the entertainment and amazement that this portable darkroom can provide, because...
One lucky person will win a Glow Crazy Doodle Dome!
