Glo-Friends came out after Glo-Worm did. They had accessories like a big turtle, etc. that you could buy to go with them. They all had these little cloth sleeping bags, and glowed after being charged by the light.

There was also a super cute cartoon show to go with the toys. They even had a movie and a Christmas Special!

We still have the Glo-friends tree house it had a light up pool or pond area and a swing that played music when your glo friend sat on it. Still have both swinging doors too.

I had TONS of Glo-friends. I even had the duck that you could put one of the glo-friends on and it would roll around. I loved them!

I still have two of the Glo-Worms one was a worm wearing purple pajamas and a purple night-cap and the other was a fly-type and had pink and blue stripes on its front had a pink night-cap and had pink wings. I used to hold the pink and blue striped one close to my lamp and I held it so close that its face started to melt.

I had lots of these, & remember saving pocket money to buy them. I still have Glo Spider that I got for my 10th birthday, & he still glows well for a 20+ year old! :^D

Me again. I just remembered I still have Glo Snail bury somewhere. I used to love to tucking them into their little pouches at night, and seeing those little glowing faces peeking out. Ahhh the memories!

I still have my glow friend... He's a spider :) He's all melted on the bottom and brown because I left him on top of the light too long and his leg is missing because my dog chewed it but this was something I could NOT part with!

Hey I've got two peaces for sale. Still in box. Never opened. From Greece. In a special box you could only buy in Greece! A Snake and a worm. But I don't know what this is worth??? Could someone tell me how much I can get for it? Because maybe I want to trade with someone. But NOBODY can tell me and I know nobody who owns them. Please mail me: Thank you Patrick

My Dad used to put these under my lamp before bed every night. We'd count to ten to charge them up. Then, he'd wish me goodnight and turn off the lights. They looked so cool! It was our little bedtime game.

I've got Glo Turtlr and four Glo bugs inside - open to offers - can send photos. Clearing our attic, these were my daughters. Might be more up there.

I confess that I actually had the snail front and center. Kept it on my bed post for years until I was eventually forced to change rooms.
Justin - July 02, 2010 - Report this comment
These guys are awesome, I really hope they bring them back! I used to have most of the normal ones, and so did my cousins. We used to fight over them all the time. I even had that bull frog with the cool orange bug rider, but my favourite was that dopey snail! Bring em back already!! C'mon Playskool or Hasbro, time to revive the franchise and banish children's nightmares once again...

I just received my Glo Land Tree House I bought off of e-bay!!! I also bought a bunch of Glo friends.. The turtle came with the tree house lot... So excited with my childhood toys, my daughter is already in love with them as well.... Can't figure out why they stopped making all the cool toys, now a days it's all these high tech toys... I always loved my simple toys, my kids are the same way!! Wish the toy companies got that too!!

Are you interested in buying coin operated horses or spring rocking horses??? They are sold on Ebay. Most spring horses are made by Blazon, Wonder, Flexible Flyer, and Radio Flyer. Feel free to buy as many as you like. Good luck!!! :) Ebay account required.

Cleaning house and found the tree house and 100 glo friends. It made me smile because the swing still played music and you could still charge the little guys in the pond. I don't have kids but would hate to just donate them, let me know if anyone is interested. Would appreciate honest offers and advice on getting them to a new home. All were played with and well loved but the paint and glow ability on them is amazing.
