When I was a kid there was this ingenious line of stuffed animal toys call “GloFriends” that were supposed to help kids get over their fear of the dark. The first in the line was GloWorm. When you squeezed him, he glowed. Good idea. Mine was defective. It required enough force to crush a child’s rib cage in order to activate its glowing feature. Needless to say I did not get over my fear of the dark with GloWorm’s aid.
