From The Manufacturer

200 Brilliantly Glowing Stars are included in each kit. Lifetime Glow Guarantee - these are the only stars made with IllumaGlow2.0 - our Trademarked proprietary formula. Our stars are NOT merely stickers or decals - They are rigid, Thermo-molded and can be re-applied with a special adhesive putty that comes with your kit. You won't have to deal with dried-on stickers that are virtually impossible to remove from your ceiling. Each Kit comes with enough adhesive putty for all 200 stars (and even your Bonus Moon!). A word about Putty - Our adhesive putty not only gives you the freedom to reposition your stars with the confidence that they will stick again, but has been tested to be safe for wall/ceiling surfaces - even textured or older popcorn-style ceilings. Other manufacturers use the less expensive double-sided foam tape, which loses it's adhesion properties after one application AND has been known to leave behind a messy, dried mixture of foam tape/dried glue that is extremely frustrating to remove. Bottom line is OUR putty is safe, Reusable and worry-free! Comes with an inspirational star guide and constellation map. Excellent tool for helping children who still struggle with being left alone in the dark. Important - Charge Stars prior to each use using a bright Room light, making sure your bulb is approx 1,500 lumens or more.

An Overview On Glow In The Dark Stars

Glow-in-the-dark stars are made from plastic or sticker paper, and they are coated with phosphorescent materials that absorb light. The surfaces then release the light energy into another color, slowly, producing the long, glowing effect. Not only do these luminous stars help children and adults alike fall asleep, but they can also be a great learning tool.

Some kits have molded plastic stars that must be individually applied with the putty that is included. Others are made from paper and are more like decals, which are easier and faster to stick on walls and ceilings.

It is nice to have extra pieces for redecorating, but do not buy more stars than you need, especially for smaller rooms. They are rather limited in their use, though they can be used for arts and crafts.

To get the stars to glow, they only need to be exposed to light for a short amount of time. How long this period is will depend on the particular kit you purchase, and the timing (usually from five to 15 minutes) should be in the product description.

The Glow In The Dark Star Buying Guide

  • If you are concerned about protecting your walls, you may want to opt for molded stars. The stick-on versions may be harder to remove, and they could damage surfaces.
  • Always clean and dry the surfaces you plan to decorate before placing the stars. They also adhere better to flat surfaces. This is especially true of the molded variety.
  • If the stars are stuck on and you’d like to move them, try using a heat gun or hair dryer to loosen them up before removing.
  • To get stars to glow, you can turn on all the lights in the room for a few minutes, or try shining a flashlight on the decal you’d like to illuminate.
