1.0 out of 5 stars Little Tiny Pieces That Don't Hold Their Glow, February 24, 2006
This review is from: Star Explosion Glow In The Dark Set (Toy)
This item came in the mail and my 4 year old son and I were very excited. I guess we should have read the description more carefully because I wasn't expecting so many tiny little pieces. We used ticky tack and began the tedious process of sticking the different sized stars and such all over his room. We waited that night to see the glowing celestial extravaganza. We kept the light on for some time to 'charge' the glow in the dark element then turned off the light. What we found was nothing close to amazing. The glow was fairly dim and only lasted for a very short period of time. We even turned a blacklight on them and all that did was make them glow a little brighter but, again, the glow only lasted about 10 -15 minutes. I ended up going back online and buying glow in the dark paint and a star shaped sponge. We dabbed stars all over his ceiling. These glowing stars last most of the night and our friends and family think his room is really cool.

Thank you for your review, I was just about to purchase those stars until I read your review. You probably saved me some time, money, and frustration. Thanks!

Try ultra-violet (UV) ink that is used in Chuckie-Cheese hand stamp. They are available here at Amazon. I only tried the one below for DIY invisible ink pens - works great. There are other brands available.

I'd like to know what ink did you use; or what inks did others use (brand, etc.) and how well is worked (how long, how bright). Thank you!
