Everything you need to know about Glodio StarOrbs


How long will they glow for?

10-12 hours

Star Orbs glow very brightly for the first hour, then slowly fade out after 12 hours. If you wake during the night, they’ll still be glowing – ready and waiting to lull you back to sleep.

Will they keep my kids awake?

No quite the opposite. StarOrbs are a great incentive for reluctant sleepers because they make kids WANT to go to bed. They’re quite mesmerizing, capturing your little one’s attention long enough for their body to relax and get ready for sleep. StarOrbs are a fantastic sleep cue to add to anyone’s bedtime routine.

Do I need to paint my ceiling black?

That could look awesome. But no, you don’t need to. Because the ceiling will fade away in the dark anyway. These stars have a unique white backing so you can use them on any coloured ceiling, and they will still glow brightly.

How do you charge them?

Leave the bedroom lights on for 10 minutes before bedtime. Energy efficient CFL lightbulbs are awesome for this! A UV blacklight will charge them super bright in seconds. Incandescent light bulbs are not recommended.

How bright are the stars?

Star Orbs are bright enough that they will make you feel a sense of security in the dark, but not so bright that it lights up the room or will keep you awake.

Are they safe?

The fact that you’re asking is odd, because they’re glowing star stickers…they won’t eat you, or steal your stuff. Also, they’re non-toxic, non-radioactive, odourless and free of genetic mutation so your kids won’t turn into a monster. But Please (bold so we mean it) don’t use them on a cot or above a bunk bed where little hands may be able to reach them.

How many stars do I need?

How long does shipping take?

Normally 3-6 working days within Australia.

What if I don’t like them?

Too bad! Just kidding. 100% satisfaction guarantee. If you’re not happy, please message us here.

The most realistic glow-in-the-dark stars available.


How long do they take to install?

Depends how fast you are, speedy! Around 30mins for a small bedroom and 60mins for a standard size single bedroom. If you’re mucking around and drinking coffee or catching Pokemon it might take a bit longer. They’re easy to install because they each have a sticky back (peel and stick….no putty required).

How should I place the stars?

Channel your creative instincts and place them in any design you want! You can also download a Personalised Star Map from our home page here.

Will they stick to textured ceilings?

The tiny ones might but the bigger will probably need some superglue applied to get them to stick properly. Of course, this means they probably won’t come off easily. But you knew that.

Everything you need to know about Glodio Glow Paint


How long will does it glow for?

Each glow colour has a different level of brightness and glow time.

Green: Very bright, 12hrs+
Aqua: Quite bright, 10hrs+
Blue: Somewhat dim, 4hrs+

Paint appears off-white in the daylight.

TIP: If you paint tiny dots on your ceiling, you’ll barely be able to distinguish between the different glow colours. What will stand out instead, is the different levels of brightness. So when you use different glow colours next to each other, the brightest colour will seem to leap out towards you, but the dimmer ones will fade into the background. This is how Star Artists create a 3D effect that makes it seem like some stars are closer to you, and others are further away.

What about other glow colours like red, orange and pink?

These glow colours are available, but they only glow for 15mins – 2 hours and are quite a lot more expensive. Please message us if you would like to buy these colours.

Can I mix the colours to get new glow colours?

The easy answer is no, blue + yellow will not equal green. You can get an interesting swirly pattern going on, but the glow colours won’t actually mix into each other. Why? It’s complicated. Just trust us, it doesn’t work.

How much glow paint will I need?

A litre of paint will generally cover 8sqm of surface. But if you only want to paint dots (stars) on your ceiling, you’ll need a lot less. Start with the 30mL squeeze bottles and see how you go.

Is it safe?

Yes, the glow paint is non-toxic, non-radioactive and odourless (when dry). However, this product should still be kept out of reach of children.

How long does shipping take?

Normally 3-5 working days within Australia.

What if I don’t like the paint?

Everything you need to know about the UV Blacklight

About The UV Blacklight

Do I need a black light to charge the star orbs or glow paint?

No, you can charge them with sunlight and/or room lights. But a UV black light will charge them faster, make them glow brighter and for longer. You’ll also be able to see the different colours much clearer.

Is it safe?

Yes, but please keep out of reach of children. The ultra-violet light may cause damage if it’s shined directly into someone’s eyes.
