1.0 out of 5 stars Boomerang version of Crayola Glow Station, April 12, 2011
This review is from: Glow Crazy Glow to Go (Toy)
When i initially purchased this item I thought that it would be better than the Crayola Glow Station because it offered multiple glow sheet colors... I was very wrong. When a company decides to make a glow in the dark toy, they must decied how much glow pigment they will put in the item, this decides how long and how bright it will glow, the pigment quality can range from grade 0 to grade 7 and increases with cost. This company has used a cheap glow paint that does not last very long even in the darkest of conditions, and the sheets dont seem to have a protective trasparency over them the same way Crayola does. The picture on the box depicts a boy who has drawn several items, when my children tried to draw even one item by the time they went on to draw the next, the first had already disappered. This in indicative of this company saving on production cost by using an inferior quality of glow paint.

At our pediatric location, the children could not even use this item because of how fast the glow would fade, and several of the children want the Crayola one becuase Crayola, who has been around longer, has used good a glow material and brighter LED, that caused it to be bright and lasts much much longer.
If your thinking "well maybe the problem was with your light", nope , at our clinic we have laser light toys, so instead of using the light that came with it we tried the laser, which is obviously at a much higher intensity, and the glow still would not stay but for maybe three seconds.

The stencils are few and appear to be made of compressed paper, where as the stencils from Crayola are many and both positive and negative cut outs made from hard plastic. The reason i mention this is because since we use these at a clinic and several children will me handeling them, the paper ones will probably get dirty and of course wont out last the plastic.

We decided to return all of these and buy the Crayola name brand. We call these poor quality toys "boomerangs", cause they go right back to the store.

Does the glow wand from the glow crazy work with the crayola product? Cause if so I might check it out.

In reply to an earlier post on Jan 7, 2012 4:54:08 PM PST
Its possible that wand from the glow crazy may work with the crayola product cause of the type of light, but it appeared to not have the same intensity or "lumen". What we did at the clinic was buy a black light flash light and that worked amazing for hand prints and stencils. The glow resulting from the UV of the black light flash light was much stronger and wont cause skin harm cause the frequency/spectrum is too low.
