If real ducks glowed in the dark, night duck-hunting would be the national pastime. For now, we'll have to settle for these miniature rubber duckies, about 1-5/16" from their bright orange beaks to their little duckie tails, and 1-3/8" tall. You'll get a dozen frosty white GITD duckies. Our media maven Bill suggests a nice bubble bath in the dark. "Please send pics," he says.
Chemiluminescence, which is glow-in-the-dark to anyone who doesn’t like six-syllable words, is a favorite here. Half the warehouse glows in the dark, and that’s not counting the staff. All of which is why we’re selling this 30-piece Glowing Chemistry kit from Thames & Kosmos. Comes with 3g of luminol, 6g of potassium hexacyanoferrate and 12g of sodium carbonate, plus test tubes, pipette, goggles, measuring cups, stir sticks and UV beads among other stuff, including a 48-page manual with (22) different experiments (because 22 of the same experiments would be stupid). For ages 10+. Made in Germany.
OK, glass with blue LEDs, but still. This is a Newton’s Cradle, always seen with steel ball bearings, but this time with frosted glass balls glowing a stunning bright blue while they swing on wires and prove Newton’s Third Law, and if you have to look that up you shouldn’t be reading this catalog in the first place. Just kidding--it says that for every action there is an equal and opposite reaction. You knew that. Newton would have ordered multiples of this beauty for all of his friends. Measures 7-3/4" tall on a 7" x 6" base with the standard (5) globes. You add (6) “AA” batteries for the glow.
Hanging from your ceiling. Our multi-color glow-in-the-dark solar system DIY 3-dimensional mobile includes a 4-1/8" dia sun, 2-3/4" Jupiter, 2" Saturn with removable rings, 15/16" Uranus and Neptune, 13/16" Earth and Venus, and 11/16" Mars, Mercury and Pluto, all with little rings at the top to hang them from. Includes (32) feet of cord and a fact sheet. If, on the other hand, you want to be on the astronomical cutting edge, just leave Pluto in the box and tell him to get over it.
More goose-sized than chicken-sized at 3-3/4" tall x 2-3/4" max dia, this soft, translucent-rubber egg glows with color. It can be set to stay one hue, or to change very slowly from purple through blue, green, orange and red to purple…. Very Zen. Or very cute in an Easter basket. Runs on (3) replaceable button-cell batteries, included.
Up to two hours of phosphorescence in the color of your choice. Bending
the 4" long plastic glowsticks in accordance with the instructions permits a
chemical mixing that creates the magic. It's a one-timer, however, so
choose your spots!! Great for conducting the concert when the
house-lights have gone out, as night-time safety markers, or as
surrogate sparklers for writing your name in the air after dark. Amaze
some neighborhood children while trying to explain how fireflies work!!
Sport some Glowbys™ and you'll never be ignored in a dark room again. Just clip the 1-1/2" barrette to your tresses and watch the 13" long fiber-optic strands flash red and blue while they bounce around above your coiffure. Great for parties, but just as sure to brighten up a dull Tuesday night at the laundromat. Replaceable batteries included.
