When the lights are on, the White Lightning Stick looks like a plain styrofoam tube. Turn off the lights, and the White Lightning Stick comes alive – strobing with green, red and blue. Change the setting and it will also change through the colors of the rainbow.

Ooey, gooey gross slime, brains and worms go hand-in-hand with Halloween. If you are a room mom or parent planning any type of Halloween party this October, we have the best Halloween party favor for your guests.
