Glow Sticks Are Fun!
A favorite staple of dances at conferences are the glow sticks worn by both children and adults. They come in a variety of colors and lengths. When we recently purchased a large amount of glow sticks for a regional conference, we tried to research online the best brand of glow sticks. There is not much information available, mostly that the Lumistick seems to be highest quality.
So we decided to do a semi-scientific comparison — activate the same number of glow sticks from different brands at the same time and judge their brightness. We purchased a package of major name brands from Amazon, WalMart, etc. We also bought the small 10-packs you can get from Target, Dollar Tree, etc. Right away we can tell you the Dollar Store glow sticks just don’t cut it compared to the major name brands. A lot of them were already activated or duds, and they just weren’t that bright.
