This toy allows kids to create glowing works of art that animate as the layers are moved. Reminiscent of a vintage flip book (something parents will remember), children are encouraged to draw a new scene on each plastic panel before pressing the button to light it all up and watch the drawings move. It's a little movie that kids can hold in their laps. Inclusive of four drawing surfaces, six glowing markers, and four animation-tracing guides, the glow book is the battery-powered way to spark your child's imagination.

Parental supervision is definitely required for this one, as kids will melt and blend their favorite wax colors to make unique crayon combinations. Concealed in heat-resistant blue plastic, this toy has a latched lid to keep curious fingers away from the melting areas. However, the lid is clear so kids and adults will be able to watch as the wax is melted and molded into wacky-colored crayons. A full booklet of thorough instructions and access codes to the Crayola web site is available in every kit.

Parents might feel nostalgic for the "light-bright" of their childhoods after seeing this toy! There's no mess and no clean-up when it comes to this 3 dimensional moving surface. Colorful lights come to life as new drawing are lit from the inside. The large stylus is used to personalize the surface with messages and custom drawings; although, there's also a game option that allows for hours of unique play in a 3D world.
