Glo® was born out of a classroom project at Mississippi State University. Our first patented products were Glo Cubes®, which were liquid-activated, light up drink cubes. After some early success with this product, we had a mother reach out to tell us that she had seen Glo Cubes® at a restaurant and after realizing that they were liquid-activated, took one home to place in the bath for her autistic son. She told us it was the first time in months that her son had taken a bath without crying. We pivoted and got to work making the first versions of Glo Pals® in 2018. Today, you can find our products in more than 1,400 stores across the USA and Canada. To date, we’ve sold over 4 million products to customers in 36 countries.
