The adorable Glo Pals are here to give baths a glow-up!

Glo Pals got their start with a mother helping her kid with autism get over his fear of water. Now, these sensory toys have a full line of characters designed to make bathtime fun for every kid. The Glo Pals light up when exposed to liquid, so any kid will be eager to get their toys (and themselves) into the water!

Glo Pals is bringing even more to bathtime with character updates and new sets on the way. Each Glo Pal Light Up Cube is designed to last for a minimum of 16 hours of light and is now made with 100% recycled plastic. Kids can insert the cube into their Glo Pals character to make them glow. The characters are also getting a more detailed look that’ll have kids falling in love with their light-up buddies all over again.

The newest Glo Pals release is giving every character a fresh look and new personality profiles. The pals include Alex, who glows yellow; Blair, who glows blue; Lumi, who glows purple; Pippa, who glows green; and Sammy, who glows red. Kids can connect to their Glo Pal through shared interests, such as Sammy’s love for sports or Lumi’s passion for arts and crafts. The newest line of updated pals will release on July 25.

That’s not all that’s on the way from Glo Pals! The Pick Up Pals Tool Set is a full set of tactile tools, perfect to pair with any sensory bin. The Sensory Jar also gives kids an interactive hands-on experience with a jar that lights up when kids fill it with water. Both the Sensory Jar and the Tool Set will launch this September. 

Glo Pals even has the perfect collab for little fans of Sesame Street, with Abby Cadabby, Big Bird, and Cookie Monster pals available now. Have a look at the official store to find a favorite character and see bathtime in a new light!


These liquid-activated, light-up sensory toys are designed to nurture imagination, encourage development, and support learning through playtime. Kids can insert a light-up cube into each character to see it illuminate when they place it in water.
