Inner Glow

A light bulb hangs suspended in this clear acrylic brick and requires no electricity to cast off that signature glow-in-the-dark green light. The bulb is real, but the designers modified it with glow-in-the-dark material so that it sucks up light during the day and gives off a subtle glow at night. Made by a UK design collective, the Glow Bricks are a playfully modern way to add atmosphere. Made in China.

        I Loved the idea & the picture. Mine was left outside by UPS in -10degree weather for parat of the day. Maybe had something to do with it not working at all.

        Not nearly as cool as I thought it would be. Very small. Needs lots of light to glow brightly in the dark. Awesome idea, but was a little let down by the actual product.

          I agree with most of the reviews about this product, that it does not retain the illumination for very long, however, it is a pretty cool looking novelty item.

          Low Glow

            We are very dissappointed with its illumination. Sure it's an artsy fartsy piece and a great conversation piece, too. But after a day in the sunlight to "charge up", I'm very disappointed in it's performance. It glows very dimly for a very short time.

                    Gave three for Christmas; all recipients were disappointed with the product. Glow is so faint that it is highly disappointing.

                      This is very well made and it looks great sitting on a desk or shelf, it just doesn't get as bright as I'd hoped.

                          This is a little smaller than what I expected, but that's a good thing since kids usually have a lot of stuff on their dressers and nightstands. It's good quality and a cool gift.
