I'm not ashamed to say I still have my glo worm. I don't sleep with it anymore but it's around the house somewhere up with other childhood toys. This makes me want to get it out and see if it will still glow. Mine had stripes around its abdomen, pink and yellow I think.
I had completely forgotten about those things until I saw this group! They were the night light that went out after you went to sleep. They made you feel so safe in the dark.. that is how I felt anyhow.
When I was a kid, I was afraid of the dark. And my birth-father insisted that I sleep in the dark, when he came back to live with us, when I was six years old. He said that I couldn't stay a baby forever. And I would cry myself to sleep, terrified, every night. Finally, my mother...
my mom gave it to me on mothers day, when i was eight years old. mine never glowed, it was new and everthing. she took it back and got me a new one, that one never glowed either. i didnt care, cause my mom gave it to me and that made me feel good.
My Glo Worm was good friends with my Cabbage Patch doll. They didn't get to spend much tome together because he was usually with me hiding under the bed so no one would bother me.
Good friends are hard to find these days...
I loved my glow worm! He was so warm and friendly, I loved the toys that had the soft plastic faces and the soft cushiony bodies.
Mine was blue and glowed the soft yellow glow that just warmed me inside.
Coolest toy until Barbie entered my life, but never forgotten.
