A Weekend Glow Crazy Giveaway

You know how sometimes you see a toy and you think, “Wow, I’d’ve loved that when I was a kid. Heck, I’d like to play with that today.” Glow Crazy caught my imagination like that. I heard about it through an e-mail pitch, and the Glow Crazy folks were kind enough to send us one copy to try out and one copy to give away. I think the kids will love it, but I’ve decided to keep ours a secret to give to them this Christmas.

Doesn’t this sound like fun?

Named as one of the Hot Toys for Holiday 2010 by the Canadian Toy Association, GlowCrazy is an innovative and safe, new lightwand that lets children express their creativity, drawing with light — mess and worry free!

Canada is the North American launching ground for GlowCrazy, the ultimate magic wand. Already a monster hit in New Zealand, GlowCrazy’s unique, first-of-its-kind Lightwand works best in a darkened room where children can let their imagination shine — creating, drawing and writing with light — and turning their homes and play spaces into a fun temporary glow land!

GlowCrazy lets children put on amazing light shows, doodle all over the walls, play games and make funny silhouettes come to life, right before your very eyes. Simply turn on the lights to “erase” the doodles and start all over again.

Artsy with no mess — what’s not to love? I can’t wait to see the boys trying this one out!

Here’s a little bit of a demonstration from their promotional video:

Dani I have to say that this has to be one of your coolest giveaways yet!

6 Leanne November 13, 2010 at 9:54 am

I think the boys would use this like a lightsabre but the effect would be more like an LSD trip.

Which means: we would love to win this!

7 Annie November 13, 2010 at 10:06 am

8 KarenL November 13, 2010 at 10:08 am

16 Angela November 13, 2010 at 2:22 pm

Cool! there is a big wall in DS room that I didn’t know what to do with. I thought about some kind of dry erase board, but I don’t even trust him with washable markers up there. This sounds perfect!

17 Elizabeth November 13, 2010 at 3:31 pm

That looks like so much fun! My daughters would love playing with this!

18 Joy November 13, 2010 at 4:33 pm

19 alison November 13, 2010 at 4:54 pm

Oh, count me in, please, Dani! Leah and Rae would love that.

20 Mary @ Parenthood November 13, 2010 at 5:17 pm

Also interested to know where one mght find these locally. Cuz much as I would like to win, I think my winning luck is all used up.

21 Anonymous November 13, 2010 at 7:24 pm

What a great concept! Like Mary I’d love to know where they can be found locally, and be included in the giveaway.

22 Carly November 13, 2010 at 7:25 pm

Grrr . . . the previous “Anonymous” comment was from me. I had a Captcha malfunction and when I tried again, my info was lost.


23 Emma November 13, 2010 at 8:10 pm

Yep – the kids would adore that. Cool!

24 Dawna November 13, 2010 at 8:15 pm

This has me more than a bit curious Dani!… and wondering where you find the willpower to things until Christmas!

25 Mary November 13, 2010 at 9:44 pm

This looks sooo cool!

26 Lida Wellman November 13, 2010 at 9:51 pm

That looks like great fun! The hard part will be deciding whether to give it to one of my grandchildren or to play with it myself! 😉

27 allison-lee November 13, 2010 at 10:04 pm

This looks like a really fun toy! It reminds me of playing with sparklers as a child.

What a cool toy! I’d love to play with that myself… although I suppose, were I to win, it’d need to go to my 5-yr old. They really do get all the best stuff.

37 Chantal November 15, 2010 at 9:00 am

Hello! Count me in! I know I would love it. And my boys would too 🙂
