I love Glo Friends, they were THE toy of my childhood and I collected as many as I could. I loved everything about them. I cherished the packaging and I cut out the images on the boxes and blue tacked them around my room. My collection was given away to a relative when I was deemed past the age of toys (no such thing). So as an adult I bought them all back on Ebay and today I have a lovely little collection of Glow Friends above my desk.

Even if you are not familiar with the Playskool 1980's toy yourself you will no doubt guess that their most unique selling point was their ability to glow. Mine still work to this day, no batteries required, just put them under your bedside lamp for a few minutes and you'll have a glowing buddy to send you off to sleep.

These retro toys were sometimes known as Glo Worms as well as Glo Friends. There were soft body ones too that would sing a little lullaby but I didn't have one of those. Mine were all small hardbodied plastic ones and each had their own name and came with a cute little sleeping back with a button hole at the top which I never knew what it was for.

So if you like Glo Friends or Glo Worms then you might like this print. You can also check out my Glo Friends T-shirts too available through Teemill.
