Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Brian My child LOVES this thing.
First, it is absolutely not at all expensive. It's bright, it has red, green & blue solid and flashing function. A wash of multicolor which tries to be white but not really and multicolor fade. My daughter uses it as her magic wand and we use it as a distraction device for fits in public. The best part is that the flashing function will make you more visible during trick-or-treat and such. This is a great safety device that brings joy to any child and that which bring happiness to any caring parent that wants their child to be safe and happy.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by SJMFOX Nice thing for auto
This little light stick (about 8 inches in length) has some interesting color effects. It has flashing modes in red, green, and blue as well a solid mode for all of those and flashing alternate colors and fading alternate colors. I could see it being used for emergencies on the road and maybe for camping/hiking. It does give off gentle light, although you can use it in a pinch for seeing in the dark if necessary. Kids would have great fun with it, too.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by jswobe Great little light, good for kids at night and Halloween
This is essentially a battery powered glow stick that can change colors and flash. It has one switch (tail cap style) that cycles through all of the colors / settings. That is my only problem w/ the light stick. You have to go through all of the colors / flashing options to get to "OFF."
I used this in one of my jack o'lanterns on Halloween instead of a candle. I put the light stick in a ziploc bag, placed it in the bottom of the jack o'lantern and let it go. It shone continuously for four or five days.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by SavvyCat Too much fun!
Seems like a silly little thing, but I really like this stick. I can see many uses for it from the fun to urgent. Sometime I walk at night, and while I can see fine, I use it some others can see me. Sometimes I'm in a red mood, and sometimes green. The blue is just pretty. The wrist leash keeps you from dropping it. Packed in an emergency kit, the leash will help you twirl it to make a bigger target for the rescue helicopters (though I never intend to need it).
The only thing I don't like is the single button operation. You have to click through all of the settings to turn it off, and if you accidentally past your setting you have to click through all of them again. Other than that, it's perfect for the price.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by DIYinOH Dollar store junk
The picture and description seemed to imply this was a handheld glow stick, as in, an adult's hand. I figured I could throw it in the trunk and use it for emergency lighting if I ever needed it.
In reality, this is dollar store junk. The "grip" is barely longer than a AA battery. The light output is comical (it appears to be 3-5 LEDs across a tube that is 6 inches in length). The color changing feature is pretty worthless (when is green light preferred over white light?)
I ended up giving it to my three year old daughter to play with as a toy. She was entertained for about 15 minutes and now it sits on the playroom floor. I asked her why she doesn't play with it and she said because it's "too dark".
So there you have it, it fails as both a light and a toy.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by tyoungblood Lights don't stay on
Does anyone else have problems with these things staying on longer than 5 minutes? For my purpose, I want them to stay on until the batteries run out, but they are useless if I have to come back every 5 minutes to press the switch.

The glow stick, surprisingly, blew my mind. There were multiple colors and can be used as an awesome light show for dogs, children, and inebriated adults. Lightweight, requires only 2 AA batteries for a good time.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Jason Bright and fun light stick
This is a great little light stick. Has a convenient wrist strap. There are many choices in the colors and all of them are very bright. The flashing feature is also great. Would be helpful item to keep in car or in kids room.
