Picture on Box is DeceptiveApr 01, 2011
By T. Rodriguez
First and foremost I want to let anyone interested in this product know that the entire inside of the tent is NOT glow material contrary to what the box illustrates. There are only two areas where your child can draw. One is the ceiling approx 36x30 inches and a smaller square on the back wall approx 18x18 inches. The entire rest of the inner tent does not glow at all, my children were disappointed by this. The design of the tent is also different from what is shown on the box. The front opening is not a large U shape but a very small flap opening. Your children will have to crawl in and out. The material is thin which was kind of expected but it seems a bit thinner than other pop up play tents of this kind.
This could have been a fantastic product had they made it like the illustrated box photo. Like I said above the biggest disappointment is the small size of the drawable inner glow area.

not as advertisedAug 23, 2011
First of all, the dome is not what is on the box and it really doesn't fit together. The poles are too long and cannot be secured by the velcro enclosure. Secondly, it shows and says on the box that you can draw all over the inside of the dome. That is not true. As other reviews have said, there is only a small area on the top and on the back of the dome. Very disappointed. The material seemed to be of good quality and the concept is good, but the product is not. Buyer beware. I don't believe there is a newer model that allows you to draw all over the inside. The dome on the box is completely different than what you get.

The Doodle Dome we received is not anything like advertised.Jan 09, 2012
We bought the Glow Crazy Doodle Dome for our 6 year old Grand Daughter for Christmas. It's all she asked for. What a disappointment that was for her and us. The company that shipped it say they do not have another one. We are not sure we would want another one if they are all like this one. It must have been defective right out of the box. The tent would not stay up. It is real flimsy and nothing like the picture on the box. TOTALLY DIFFERENT. We were told we could ship it back AT OUR EXPENSE for a refund. It will not go back in the box. It is too big and awkward, I don't know what we would ever ship it in. Since our Grand Daughter lives in another state, we don't know when we will get it anyway.
Unless we just got ahold of a bad one, I would not recommend it to anyone.

Son loves it.Aug 04, 2012
My youngest son got this in Sept 2011 for his 5th birthday and loves it.
First of all, my review is positive. And contrary to what other reviewers may say about positive reviews on this product, I am not an employee for this product and have no connection with it's manufacturer or distributor other than my son was given this as a gift nearly a year ago. I am a firefighter/paramedic in Florida and have been in that career for 18 years, not the toy business.
I don't know what product the other reviewers received. But, the box that my son's glow dome came in looks exactly like the one pictured. And you ARE able to 'write/draw' on all of the enterior of his with the exception of the one end that has the door. But, the opposite end and the entire curved walls/ceiling are 'writable' with the 'glow wand' thingy. The poles (fiberglass tent-type with elastic cord connecting segments) fit perfectly every time.
In response to folding it up to go back in the storage bag, it does take some technique. We were familiar because my other two sons, now 17 y/o and 19 y/o had toys that folded up similar including a kite, a fire truck tent, and another crawl-through toy. The trick is to grab it on opposite corners and twist in opposite directions. It is a little more tricky than it sounds if you aren't experienced in doing it. But, once you get the 'knack' of it, it is quick and easy.
The cardbord/paper stencils with shapes didn't last long after getting bent several times. But, he traces other things and we had some sturdy plastic stencils left over from one of my older son's art kits that work just as well.
My son still gets it out regularly and plays in it. It also makes a neat 'clubhouse' or tent for a 5 year old. Easier than getting a bunch of blankets and propping on chairs like I did 40 years ago. I will likely get one for my nephew this Christmas, as he likes my son's when he visits.

Awesome toy with lots of potentialSep 07, 2011
I am so impressed with this toy! A friend bought it for my daughter at Walmart. Usually I find that this type of thing isn't all it appears to be but this toy comes through. The back and front of the tent are not writable but all other surfaces inside are. The glow shows up very well and the tent blocks outside light enough to use inside in the middle of the day. My teenager and I even enjoyed her sister's toy for quite a while. I came looking for it on Amazon to purchase for my classroom. I can see much potential for this toy for such things as practicing letters, spelling words, and cursive writing. I also plan to use time in it as a reward for my students. I don't know if there are other older versions but this one is super!
