I would like to start off with the packaging I love it and would be great for the 4th of July. My kids love these glow sticks and they last longer than the ones I buy at the store. My 4 year old really loves to line these down his race tracks which is pretty freaking cool. The possibility's with this product are endless you can have a glow party for your kids. You can make bracelets or necklaces or landing strip's for your kids planes. Great to do all kind of things for your kids to have fun while having quality family bonding time. There is nothing better in this world then the smiles on your kids faces while they are having fun and being creative. I also love how these glow sticks came in a card board sturdy tube they were in perfect condition so you don't have to worry about your product coming in the mail. These glow sticks are bright and last longer than any of the glow sticks I have got before these are 8" long. Non-toxic and CPSIA Compliant Glow Sticks so that is another plus. Each tube contains of 5 colors -- Blue, Green, Yellow, Orange, and Pink. Your order will also contain 100 connectors so you can hook the ends together to make bracelets and necklaces. If you keep them in the freezer they will last longer. The ones we got lasted about 10 hours some even lasted until the next day. Great quality glow sticks I recommend these you can also use them for adult glow parties to. These are even better when you have a creative mind. The fun possibilities are endless we had a lot of fun with these. I posted photos below my son is wearing shorts in the tub!
