We recently got a try out a set of glow-in-the-dark pajamas from Heart of Joy, a company dedicated to brightening up the lives of homeless children.
When founder Desiree L. Jones learned that more than two million children every year experience a period of homelessness, and that even included a childhood friend, she felt moved to make a difference. She made it her goal to “create these pajamas, so that every child has one BRIGHT spot of joy, even if their short lives have seen an overwhelming amount of darkness.” For every set of pajamas purchased, a portion of the proceeds goes to an organization fighting homelessness.
Keelan got a set of the Blast Off Blue Green PJs, a navy blue top and bottom with glowing green numbers. We went with a 3T based on the size chart, and it was a perfect fit. The material is mostly cotton with a little spandex, so they are soft all over with a nice stretch. The print on the them is soft as well, and held up well after washing.
Every set purchased comes with a free silicone glow in the dark bracelet, and our pack also included notepads, pens, magnet and a lollipop!

Keelan put them on during the day so we’d have enough light for pics and he didn’t want to take them off. So we exposed them to bright light for about five minutes and went in the bathroom to see the glow! He really loved counting all the numbers. We are still working on the counting part, lol.
