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.

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.Read more ›
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.
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.
