2010 Award
Glow Station Day & Night
( Crayola $29.99 Score: )

This is a bit different from the original Glow Station that had a firm drawing board base. This one has a larger drawing surface, but it's a flexible sheet of plastic with rigid ends. It can be hung on a wall or used on table top or floor. The light wand has a crystal attachment that makes a starburst design when it is pulled over the drawing surface. There are also stencil shapes and textures to rub. You do not need to be in a dark room to see the lines you draw light up. It glows green in a darkened room and purple in a lighted room. Of course, the glow quickly fades. If you are just learning to write letter that is a good thing. Mistakes fade away and you try again. It's one of those novelty toys that can also encourage kids to use their arms and hands to get a feel for making lines and circles and scribbles without the tight pencil and paper tasks of school. We still prefer last year's version with the solid base that could be enjoyed on car trips for doodling. 6 & up.

The company has signed a verification form complying with our safety requirements. We did not independently test this toy in a lab.

SNAP: This is a good choice for children who have difficulty grasping. The wand is chunky and can be held without the fine motor skills needed for pencil and paper tasks. The large surface allows for big motions that give children a sense of how lines are formed, without the frustration of writing in the lines or making permanent marks on paper.
