I bought another Sand Art item as a gift last year and it was brilliiant, mesmerizing. An obviouschoice when I was looking for anither gist.... and seeing the Glow in the Adr version fitted the rcipent 100%. However, the item received does not glow very brightly at all. It is so subtlke I am not convinced it even glows at all. Certainly NOTHING like the image above.
I love to pleasantly surprise gift recipients and this item was perfect for someone who has everything - and could welcome a gift that encourages moments of relaxation in-between demanding work assignments, that often stretch into the nighttime hours. Watching, at her work desk, the moving sands during the day and during the night released tension and heightened awareness - a refreshing break. My recipient has been ecstatic. The only criticism is that the "glow" was not so apparent and the colors could be heightened for daytime viewing.
Item not as pictured and does not glow. Hard to regulate the correct amount of air that's needed...
Not one seen will ever be the same, and you can adjust the air intake for different options. Very cool to check up and see the progress. My only issue was getting it to glow,. I put it in direct sun but still not glowing, maybe I did something wrong.
Wood, air, water, and sand - natural elements of our earth. Ever-changing, swirling colors, shapes and forms enchant and bring you back to the moment. As the forms flow away and new ones arise, stress melts, the mind is released from day-to-day constraints and new ideas come. The size of the form is perfect - it can fit anywhere without being obtrusive. The glow-in-the-dark is novel. The only improvement would be to provide more color so the forms would be as intriguing in daylight as they are at night.
Of all the types of this product I have obtained in the past, this is one I consider the best. I will try more products from this maker.

I love turning my sand window & watching the granules fall. It's so relaxing & refreshing.

I purchased the sand window for my ten year old grandson. He saw it online. I couldn't resist playing with it before wrapping it for his birthday. I loved watching the sand make waves and forms. I can't wait to give it to him next week. It would be a great gift for young or old.
It's very pretty but does not glow in the dark so was disappointed by that fact
