GlowJamas Review

Our product experts confirm in their reviews that GlowJamas is an unique concept because it comes with the T-shirt to write on. The “Glow in dark Pens” are nothing new, there are plenty of them available but the GlowJamas is the first product which also include a WHITE T-Shirt.

Many reviewers claim that it does not have to be GlowJamas T-shirt for the fun, you can buy the “glow in the dark pens” and draw and write on a plain WHITE t-shirt, it works equally good. “It is more of a tube and not pen. So it difficult to draw the the Glowjamas but writing is just fine”, one user mentions in his review.

One review mentions that the GlowJamas video is exaggerated, they don’t glow that bright (as shown the TV ad). The Glowjama pens are also not as easy as they make it look. Most of the buyers complain of dried ink and the glow isn’t vibrant bright as seen on tv. The ink in the pen dries pretty fast and once dried you have to throw away the pen. “The UV-Pen is is not sleek, it is bulky. So you cannot draw or write like a pen” – a reviewer mentions.

There are other reviews that mention “Kids get frustrated using the Glowjamas as it is difficult to draw precise lines and shapes on the t-shirt.” Also it glows only when it is pitch-dark and that too you have to strain your eyes to see the glow. The tip of the Glowjamas UV-Pen is not “felt tip”, it is liquid dispenser.

The Glowjamas is a wonderful fun for kids though it has its limitations. The science behind the GLOW of Glowjamas is Phosphorescence. Reviewers report that their kids love using the Glowjamas before going to bed. Writing names, letters, drawings, messages etc. In fact the Glowjamas are so much more engaging than any other writing method. It is a cool toy, though somewhat exaggerated. The key is to shine a bright light for 15/20 minutes on the fabric/t-shirt after you write/draw on them, this allows the UV ink to absorb a lot of UV energy, that is then emitted, causing the GLOW. Sadly the website is gone and the product is nowhere to be found.

But not all is lost. There are several similar “Glow in the Dark” UV-Pens/Markers available at “Uchida Of America” has several of these UV-pens that you can use to draw on fabric. But remember it works well only when used on the WHITE colored t-shirts/fabric. It does not glow that well on other color fabrics.
