The Crayola Color Explosion Glow Board offers a unique way for kids to display their art, as it lights up drawings much like a neon sign. It incorporates several violet lights under the drawing surface. When lit, these lights cause the ink to take on a vivid, striking glow. The board's surface is reusable -- ink erases in an instant -- making it good for hours of fun at a time. Children can easily display their artwork by using the easel back to prop the board in place. And the board's two separate drawing layers give kids even more room to doodle. Using the glow board's controls, kids can choose to display one layer, or flash between both for an exciting billboard-like effect.
Drawing with the Glow Board
The glow board's markers come in six dazzling neon colors -- red, blue, yellow, green, orange, and pink. With these colors at their command, kids will be able to create a multitude of different drawings. Perhaps they will envision a galaxy with stars and planets, or render an undersea adventure. The markers have medium tips, which can draw thickly but also offer the ability to draw finer images. A tracing sheet comes with the board to help kids get ideas for their artwork. This toy is recommended for children ages six and up, and requires three AAA batteries (not included.)
Crayola first began developing its world-famous crayons in 1903, with eight original colors. The company is now the world's most popular manufacturer of children's art supplies and it produces more than 120 different crayon colors. Crayola recently celebrated its 100th anniversary and continues to innovate in the field of children's art.

As other reviwers have mentioned, the cleaning of the board is a major design flaw. Using a soft tissue requires pretty heavy handed rubbing (impossible for a young child) - and this technique also led to scratching of the plastic board. Yes thats right - soft tissue scratched the board. Using a moistened wipe just creates a smudged board. As you can see - neither method is ideal. The instructions offer no suggestions on cleaning techniques.
Markers are very dry. A simple man would assert that less dry markers would result in a nicer glow. I can tell after 1 day of use these markers will not be useable much longer.
See the graphics on the box showing the board's drawings "glow"? Don't hold your breath. You can get a decent effect with the lights out - but even then its not brilliant.
Overall - this is just a major disappointment. The commercials for this product make it look great - heck - thats why we bought it! But the end result is a toy that will likely be discarded sooner rather than later.
I recommend moon sand - our daughter hasn't put that stuff down since she opened it! :-)
I got the Crayola Glow Board for my five year old son and he loved it! For him the fun came from the unique effects he could make on the two panel drawing surface and then turn of the lights to see how they glow.
At first he was just drawing lines and shapes just to see the glowing effect when he turned out the lights. Then we found on Crayola.com that there were a bunch of print outs he could use to trace. They even have a program that lets him make his own two frame drawing on Crayola.com then print them out to trace on the Glow Board.
The best part for us was how much it keep him entered on a long road trip we recently did. Once it started to get e bit dark outside he was able to draw in the dark. He even made a sign that read "Are we there yet"!
It is simple to use once you read the instructions, the glowing effect is amazing! I would recommend this for older children, as it may be hard for youngin's to understand the steps needed to make the animated picture effect, and a few drops on a tile floor might break this toy. As far as educational value, I suppose it teaches about light refraction, if you want to get into that with your kids. It cleans up great with a damp cloth. Also, make sure you have 3 AA batteries on hand, they do not come included.
The scenes light up fine in a lighted room, but look more dramatic in the dark. Some disadvantages are that the markers are small in size (I'm wondering how long they will work well). The directions warn that they dry out "much" faster than regular markers if you leave the caps off. Also, they recommend storing them in a ziploc bag. Sometimes it is hard to see what you are drawing as the markers don't show up well unless the scene is being lit up.
Overall, I think it's a good product...fun and different. It offers a different dimension to their art and the glow effect is cool. We haven't had any problems cleaning the boards--no more than with any surface like that (dry erase, overhead projector, etc.) you just have to be fastidious to get all the residue off, but it's not a big deal).
Also, you can go to the Crayola site and print off more pictures to trace if you'd like (there are about 15 of them). They also have a spot there where you can design your own and print them off, but the selections are limited and the scenes kind of dumb. For example, there is a snowman there that turns into a skeleton--why the need to be macabre?
