It's been a while since I've seen a toy with as many multi-generational applications as the "Crayola Glow Station." Using a Christmas gift card last night, Axel picked this baby out at Michaels and I was quite pleased.
WOW, how addicting is this! Slightly larger than an etch-a-sketch and perfect size for riding in the car, simply step into a dark room, illuminate the wand and you're ready to draw. The board comes with a few stencils, but literally ANYTHING can leave a glowing shadow. Axel had such a blast tracing Woody, Jesse and Lightening McQueen...just to name a few.
Jahred took the toy for a trial (thank you Elizabeth for catching this typo...formerly "trail") run in the bathroom this morning and was equally impressed! He suggested that film negatives would look AWESOME, brought to life in neon. Transparencies with written words or pictures work really well, and of course you can draw free hand. Eventually the ghostly images fade and it's ever-so-enticing to see what you can light up next. Best thing about this toy...not many parts, stores flat or stacked with books and it's NOT MESSY!
Ok, if you are a kid of ANY age...I highly recommend this for some serious "winter darkness" relief!
