The original Glo Worm, also known as the glowworm glow worm toy, was introduced to consumers in 1982 by Hasbro Playskool. Glo Worms are a plush toy similar to stuffed animals with a battery activated device that lights up the toy’s face when squeezed. This toy became very popular with parents and children alike creating a demand that led to the creation of additional glow worm toys.
Playskool went on to create the Lullaby Gloworm Boy which not only lights up when squeezed, but also plays several different lullabies. The music is soft and soothing helping infants calm down and fall asleep. There are three settings on the Lullaby Gloworm Boy: the first sets the toy to play the programmed lullabies for a short period of time; the second setting plays lullabies for a longer period of time; and the third setting turns off the music but still allows the toy to light up.

Fisher Price makes a Night Glow Pooh based on the popular Winnie-the-Pooh character. Night Glow Pooh lights up and plays lullabies as well. And, the toys eyes open and close when the tummy is squeezed. Night Glow Pooh also has an on/off button that controls when parents want music to play and when they don’t. This is a great feature since it allows parents to turn music off after their child goes to sleep so it is not triggered by movement which could wake a sleeping child.
Another popular glowworm glow worm toy made by Fisher-Price is the Ocean Wonders Soothe & Glow Seahorse. The toy lights up and plays music as well. The musical selections are more varied than other toys. Ocean Wonders Soothe & Glow Seahorse plays lullabies, classical music and has music that sounds like the ocean. The toy itself looks like a seahorse and its belly lights up instead of its face when it is squeezed.
There are many versions of the original Glo Worm on the market today. Children love the music, the lights and the movement. The different toys offer parents the opportunity to choose what will suit their needs best.
