A few weekends ago, my boyfriend William pulled this electrical orb out of his closet to show his niece. I wasn’t surprised that it was in his stash. I asked him if it had been a present of Christmas past and he said, “Yes, when I was around 12”. He’s a super curious, cool guy and I know that he also was like this when he was a kid. I was always fascinated by these as a kid as well. William was actually quite surprised it still worked. It’s still pretty fascinating to play with!
Among the other cool things in his toy stash are his glow-in-the-dark powders and paints. He has made sculptures, glow rocks for his aquarium and much more over the years. He is a BIG glow-in-the-dark/black light fan and we both share a fondness for it at Halloween.
One of these days, we might even have to have a cool party with his stuff and mine (I have some cool glow stuff, a fog machine, and more blacklight goodies). I’ve always wanted to put on a féte like Martha Stewart did a few years back in a magazine feature!
Until next time Swellions!
