This isn’t quite as hot off the presses as some of the other products I’ve covered, but I’m a huge fan, so I thought I’d spread the love. The Light Night is a completely unique design that is wireless, rechargable and incredibly durable. Let it charge on the included base all day, and it will shine all night long, night after night for more than a decade — and it will never get hot.
They are also easy to use, even for very young children (my 1-year old figured it out immediately). Click the large center button once for bright light and twice for a soft, colorful glow.
It provides enough light for late-night reading, nursing, navigating to the bathroom, or even finding the binky that rolled under the crib. This is one of the most useful, innovative and well-designed new products I’ve seen in a long time.
For the budget-minded who will surely raise eyebrows at the pricetag, I suggest you consider the longevity of this product. With regular use, the LED lights will last 11 years. That’s about $.05/week.
