Glow-in-the-Dark Nature Assortment
cool and fun
We used these to look for at night. The kids enjoyed looking for the bugs. It took just a couple of seconds under a light to make them glow.

These glow in the dark bugs were requested for my 2 yr old by my husband. Hubby does the bedtime routine with the little guy and they really enjoy the glow in the dark stars that hubby placed all around the little guy's room. Since the little guy LOVES bugs dad was very excited to have glow in the dark bugs on the walls as well. When they came in the mail the boys were so excited to get them up! What a miserable disappointment to find that the only way they will glow is if you shine a flashlight directly on each one for at least 45 seconds and then they only glow for a few minutes. With the stars, we turn the bedroom light a few minutes before bedtime and they are "charged" wonderfully for "night night" time. We expected the same with the bugs. So, the bugs were a waste of money because we will not be taking the time to walk around the room shining a flashlight on each bug to only have them glow a couple of minutes. Wasted money and the little guy was very sad. I suppose we can at least say that since the little guy will likely have many disappointing things happen to him in life, this was an opportunity to get familiar with how to deal with it. So, if you want to teach your child about disappointment then buy these bugs. Otherwise look elsewhere.

Great quantity, price. They don't glow =(
I bought these for a birthday party as table decorations, they are a perfect size, plastic and quantity for the price but I haven't been able to get them to glow. Maybe I will put a black light in their area. Hopefully that will make them glow! Nice assortment of insect species!

Smaller than I expected, but still very cute.
and a lot of them for the money!
I'd get these again... if I ever again need a pile of glow in the dark bugs.

I am using these little guys as a decoration around my "swamp punch" at a children's Halloween party. They are big enough that you can tell what they are, and if they glow in the dark on the night of....then they are great!

Good prize for the price
I bought these for a prize for a Carnival themed summer picnic. They will be used as a prize for one of the carnival games. I was worried with the price that they might be smaller, but they are actually a good size. The are cute and I think the kids will like them.

these were fine
the pinwheels and little duckies were most popular items. there was nothing wrong with these but the other things were much more of a hit.

We were disappointed that they didn't glow. Even after placing a handful of them directly under a lamp for several hours, they didn't work.

smaller than expected, but very glowy
these are pretty small, except for the snake/worm and centipede. they are too small for little kids. dimensions in the product description would have helped.
