Lumilove Panda Nightlight

Welcome to the shiny universe of the Lumilove!

Recently we have been having problems with our seven year old son. He wakes like clockwork at 2 am in the morning and comes in to our room and wants to get in to our bed with us. He is such a terrible snorer that this really isn't an option. It's become a problem since his plug in nightlight stopped working. However, this little nightlight from Lumilove is far superior to the plug in nightlight he previously owned, as I don't have to worry about him touching anything near the electrical mains.

I first spotted this nightlight on the JoJo Maman Bébé website and was keen to give it a try. There is an array of animals to choose from. These nightlight characters are so tender and sweet, that children will absolutely love them. The rainbow-like coloured lights are especially appealing.

A puppy

An elephant

The cute rabbit.

Or a bear.

We chose the panda option as it looked the most appropriate one for my sons' age, although we do hope to collect the whole range. Imagine how funky his bedroom will look at night!

I have found a video on YouTube to illustrate the nightlight in action.

The first thing I noticed when we pulled the nightlight out of his packaging was that it was smaller than I expected. In a way this is great as it fits in to compact areas like on a pillow. We charged the nightlight up and hey presto, once it was charged we took the charger out and it was an instantly portable nightlight. It's much more magical than your traditional nightlight however as it flickers through a range of pretty colours, as illustrated in the picture above. Because the arms, legs and ears are jointed, your child can position them to stand up or sit down which makes it more personal to them. There's no worry of overheating or electrocution as the bulb is safely contained within the body and stays charged for up to 8 hours. It's so brilliant to have a batteryless and wireless nightlight.

If you are energy conscious, you don't even need to worry about charging costs as the nightlight contains a low-consuming LED light.

The design of these nightlights is wonderful; they don't look out of place in any room as they have such a modern feel.

It retails at £25 at JoJo Maman Bébé which is a small price to pay for the peace of mind you get when using this nightlight. This is a great find!
