Buy a GAS MASK with it or don't buy at all.
on March 18, 2010
The concept for this is super cool, and the drawings come out glowing brightly as promised. I would give this marker and paper set a five star rating for coolness alone if it weren't for one MAJOR factor. THESE MARKERS STINK TO HIGH HEAVEN. Within two minutes of opening the package, the room we were in smelled terrible. It's a very chemical, nasal irritating, totally invasive smell. This is not to be confused with a gasoline like or old school magic marker type smell, where it stinks but you still take odd pleasure in it. NO NO, this is a NASTY, strong, chemical odor. The closest thing I can think of to describe it is like a freshly painted room, but a hundred times over (I'm not sure if that even accurately describes it). It took hours to get the smell out of my nose. So, a half hour of play and I DO NOT want to let my kids play with this again because the smell bothers me so much. I have considered letting them draw with them outside, but that negates the glow in the dark fun factor. I miss my $10 and I would not recommend this to a friend unless they bought a gas mask with it.
