Being afraid of the dark is not fun. Trust me, I know. I’ve been afraid of the dark for as long as I can remember. I’ve tried to keep my fears from The Kids and I think that I’ve done a good job. If that’s true then being afraid of the dark is hereditary because Artemis is also afraid of the dark.
Some nights, she gets herself so worked up about the monsters under the bed that I have to leave the hall light on. This is less than ideal because it disrupts Max’s sleep (he’s not afraid in the least) and it’s also an unnecessary use of electricity. So, when I heard about KinderGlo, I wanted to see if this product was the solution to our bedtime whoes.
Fun Safe Portable Night Light!
My first mistake was asking The Kids which of the many KinderGlo characters that they wanted. Unfortunately, Max wanted the T-Rex and Artemis wanted the Hippo. I told Max that Artemis was getting her choice because she was afraid of the dark and he could pick the next time. To which he promptly stated that HE was afraid of the dark. At only four years of age, The Kids are already smarter than me.
When it arrived (a much anticipated and discussed topic), it was really easy to set up. So easy that a four year old could do it. Before I could read the instruction booklet, The Kids had the one button settings all figured out.
My favourite feature was the ability to choose between auto-off after 30 minutes or continuous lighting. The Kids favourite part was all the changing colours. Artemis got her favourite colours; Pink/Purple and Max got his; Green/Blue.
Safe and Effective in Keeping the Monsters Away
We spend a week camping each year and I like to bring The Kids night tools (night light, monitor and alarm clock), however, this product doesn’t have a battery backup. All might not be lost. I’m running an experiment and so far we’ve gone 3 days without a charge. I’ll let you know how long it lasts. Note that according to the product specifications, the charge should last for 8-10 hours which means 16-20 days and that’s plenty of time for us.
The night light comes with a one year warranty and at only $24.95 it’s a small price to pay for the peace of mind that it brings Artemis and myself. However, if you purchase one in the next three months, you can save an additional 20% with the online checkout code: ZOOJOURNEYS. Or, try your hand at winning one below.
