Looking for an activity for the kids to enjoy during these cold, winter months? Now, kids can play in the dark anywhere, anytime of the day with this portable glow art studio from Techno Source. With the Glow Crazy light pen they can draw, write and play games on the dome’s special inner glow wall. Kids can also put on light shows for their friends and family, use stencils to create cool glow scenes, and make fun silhouettes using their hands, toys, or even their friends. Kids can let their glow creations fade or “glow over” them to clear their canvas and start again.
My daughter, Caroline, was so excited to give this toy a try – mostly because she loved the tent and light pen it comes with. She already had a princess tent she played with, but this one was clearly intriguing since it’s dark inside, like a cave. Here are some action shots – the quality of the photo is not that great inside the dome!
Honestly, it took me a minute to figure out how it worked. Caroline was using the pen and nothing was happening – then I climbed in and noticed that there was a white wall on one side where you are to use the pen! Once we discovered the wall, she had a ball. She’s a bit too young at this point to use any of the stencils, she just had fun playing with the pen (or “flashlight” as she was referring to it).
The Doodle Dome includes a light pen, 4 stencil sheets and everything needed to assemble the glow dome in a handy carrying case. Requires 2 AAA batteries (not included). Ages 3+. MSRP: $19.99.
