Crayola Glow Book
Create glowing, moving, animated art.
View larger.

The Crayola Glow Book lets kids create glowing, moving, animated art. Six glow marker colors and four removable drawing surfaces allow kids to draw, layer, and arrange images, and then light them in sequence so that the images appear to move. And since glow marker drawing surfaces wipe clean with a damp cloth, kids can create new images as often as they like. Young artists aged 6 years and up will delight in designing cartoons, multi-message signs, and sequential drawings.

Separate Layers Add Depth to Drawings

The glow book features four clear plastic panels that provide a stable drawing surface. You can freehand draw on the removable panels, or place them on top of a design sheet or other outline guide for simple tracing. Using the six colorful glow markers, create designs on each surface. Then layer the sheets in the glow book base for a colorful image with depth.

When it's time to update your artwork, simply remove the panels for cleaning. Wipe the panels clean using a soft damp cloth or paper towel. Then reuse the clean, dry panels to create entire new works of art.

Sequential Lighting Makes Drawings Move

To make your drawings come alive, the glow book has flashing lights inside the battery-powered base that illuminate the drawing surfaces. Press the buttons to light each layer individually, or choose the cycle buttons for sequential lighting effects. You can light all panels at once, activate a four-way flash, or program your own 20-way flash sequence for layers of glowing fun.

While the more serious artists may feel limited by only four drawing surfaces and six markers, most kids will enjoy the unique lighting features that make their drawings come to life. To save battery power, the glow book automatically goes into sleep mode after 60 minutes of use.

What's in the Box

Crayola Glow Book, four drawing surfaces, six glow markers, four animation tracing guides, and instructions.

My kids enjoy art type things, so we try several crayola products a year. This is one I would probably skip. It indicates that it is a "book", but the pages don't turn like a book. It is 4 panels of plastic that you pull out to color on and then put them back in to be held by a red binder. These are clever because your kids work in layers to color a whole picture. It gives it a 3D feel. I like that because it makes them think differently, and more creatively. But with this particular item the panels click, and it is hard to pull the plastic pieces in and out. Also, if they did four separate drawings, it doesn't allow you to look at them one at a time, with the glow feature, like a "book" would indicate. In this case it combines all the panels together like one drawing, again to give you the 3D feel. The other drawbacks, similar to the other glow products, include the hard to wipe surface. If you have baby wipes laying around, those work good, but after playing with it for a while, the parent will have to clean it. This product also requires a specific marker. It comes with 6 colors. They last for about a month if your kid is getting the lid back on. I always double check them. But I have a beef with Crayola, and it is similar for all their is hard to find refills. Sometimes they don't make refills (spin art), and others they are hard to find. These markers have been a little hard to find, and they are kind of pricey. At one point I had to call Crayola and they did not have them in stores in my area, so they had to send them to me. That is a little frustrating. Finally, the batteries. There is no auto shut off feature that I can tell.Read more ›

Vine Customer Review of Free Product ( What's this? )
I never really thought I would be calling any toy a godsend, but the Crayola Glow Book has done something for my ten-year-old son that none of his school teachers (and certainly not his art teacher) has been able to do. I've tried, too. I've tried asking, showing, cajoling, ordering, limiting privileges, exaggerated sighing, and using his full name, but my child's penmanship is abysmal and his art skills mostly stink.

The reason for this is relatively straightforward: in my family, kids develop their fine motor skills later than most kids do. My parents and teachers made me work at it, but I at least was getting a lot of practice all the time. My child goes to a school where he gets to type a lot of his assignments. He's learned a lot in art about color and perspective and design, but he gets extremely frustrated trying to execute what's in his head, so he stopped enjoying drawing and painting pretty much as soon as he hit kindergarten.

When I ordered this, I thought it was going to turn out to be just a gimmicky gadgety thing he'd use once and then I'd get to use it to leave notes my husband would have to work to ignore, but my son loves it. He can write, draw, erase, illuminate, and animate without having to commit anything to paper or to critical eyes (except his own). Because the illustration plates are layered, if he's happy with one part but not another, he can re-do the one without having to worry about smudging or wrecking the other. As a result, he is spending time using his fine motor skills, they are improving, and he is much happier with the work he is doing.

I gave this five stars for fun, based on his recommendation.

Vine Customer Review of Free Product ( What's this? )
If you have a budding young artist in your home, you must absolutely get this Crayola Glow Book. I didn't know at first if my seven and ten year-old kids would take to it; but once they saw the possibilities, they love it. In fact, they fight over it. My daughter, who knows I enjoy writing Amazon reviews, insisted I go online and rate this highly. She's reminded me several times. She wants everyone to know how wonderful this toy is.

The kit comes with six markers and four panels. The panels have to be removed to color and draw on and then reinserted. They light up individually, or in sequence to create motion, or they can be programmed in any sequence up to 20 times. In the dark, the colors glow and it's impressive.

When done, just wipe and reuse. It's not a one shot toy and doesn't require the purchase of any sort of refills. Kids create to their hearts' content. I'm thinking of buying this for my niece and nephew for Christmas. It would make a wonderful gift. Just remember to buy three AA batteries.


A few things to note:

* The pages don't open up like a book. They are clear and meant to be viewed straight on with the drawings shining through the panels.

* Only four pictures are included for the children to trace. When done, it shows a fish swimming towards the viewer. That's enough to demonstrate the toy's potential to the children.

* The lights sleep after 1 hour.

This is a pretty cool toy. It really works quite nicely, and is easy to operate and maintain.

The only problem is that it is a complex proposition to draw four frames that work: i.e., that tell a story and show motion. It comes with one example that you can trace -- which is nice. But only one. After that, you're on your own. My fairly-smart 6 year old isn't up to the task of making her own. She creates a story, but not one that implies motion. So it's kind of lame (but don't tell her I said that!). Perhaps if I work with her more, or if she keeps at it, she can get better and it will be a learning tool. We'll see. But as a pure toy ... not for 6 year olds, or so it seems to me.

I suspect she'll enjoy it more when she's 7 or 8.
