Night lights are one of the most powerful magical artifacts as far as many kids are concerned. These wondrous illuminated objects help keep all kinds of creatures that lurk in the dark at bay and trap the monsters that usually lie in wait under their beds or inside the closets. While the night light can be just a simple lamp stuck to the wall socket, why not awe the young ones with these truly unique and cool night lights?
The Uncle Milton Rainbow In My Room is more than just a night light. It projects a colorful rainbow on the walls and ceiling that your child can magically turn on or off with just a wave of the hand. In the day, it can be used to create a real rainbow with the help of sunlight and a prism.
The Solar Mason jar lets you “capture” sunlight in a classic Mason jar during the day and “release” it at night. The jar has LED lights that are powered by rechargeable batteries that are connected to a solar panel on the on the lid. Just place the jar at the kids’ bedroom window and it will charge up during the day and light up only at night.
The Lumen Tree Shadow Lamp is an LED illuminated version of Lumen Oil Candle Shadow Projector which was originally lighted by candles. The LED flickers like the original candle to create the illusion of a swaying tree. This new version is of course safer, can project a larger image compared to the original and makes a wonderful night light for the kids, that is unless they have a fear for tree monsters….
Boon Glo Nightlight with Portable Balls is an LED powered night light that can be set to glow in your child’s favorite color or cycle through the colors. The glow-in-the-dark balls are plastic balls coated with luminescent paint. When the child needs to go to the bathroom in the middle of the night, just bring along one of the balls for light.
For the young Star Wars fan, we have the Uncle Milton Star Wars Science Darth Maul Lightsaber Room Light. Interestingly, before you can use this lightsaber night light, you will have to construct it. The fully assembled night light is about 70 inches in length and can be mounted both vertically or horizontally.
If your child prefers armored super heroes rather than dual-blade wielding Sith lords, the Iron Man Mask 3D Deco Light might be what you are looking for. The night light even comes with a wall decal that makes it look like poor Iron Man got his head smashed through the bedroom wall. Iron Man’s eyes light up just like in the movies but they are powered by 3 AA batteries instead of the Arc Reactor mounted on Tony Stark’s chest.
Fred Dreamlights Firefly Jar is similar to the Solar Mason Jar but instead of a constantly glowing light, the LEDs in the Dreamlights jar winks and blinks simulating fireflies caught in a Mason jar. For city folks, this is probably as close as you can get to actually having a firefly jar and using it as a night light. The Dreamlights Jar is solar powered but you can also power up the LEDs with a single AA battery for longer lasting light.
