Initial impression was that it was a high quality product which would appeal to all children. Wasn’t too sure initially about whether it being battery/usb powered rather than mains would be a disadvantage. Looked like a good robust item with a top quality picture. Good quality packaging, clean and solid. Had enough info on the box without being overloaded. If I was looking at in store I would have had a good idea of what the light can do other than being just a solid lit night light. Like the concept that it isn’t just a basic nightlight, it gives something that can act as a night light and a reading night as well as providing a relaxing colour changing light.Clear and concise, includes everything which is required to use the light and to change batteries when required. Warnings included within instructions are clear and full. They are easy to read and not too small! Very easy to set up! Straight out of the box and it was ready. The basic use is very easy to use, turn on and ready to go and just use remote to select the required mode. There are ways of changing colour with base buttons which are a little more difficult but once doing while reading instructions you could see exactly what was happening and hence straight forward. She found the light very easy to use and was very insistent at doing it all herself, she was interested in how to use the remote as well as the buttons on the base. She used the rainbow setting but did look at the single colour as it included her favourite colours but preferred to have the rainbow when going to sleep. Didn’t use the light throughout the night as don’t like to have a light on at all times in her bedroom. She went to sleep with the rainbow light but was allowed to turn it back on again if she woke or it went off before she was asleep. This does allow for bedtime reading and provides enough light; as we are still reading to her prefer the main light for reading as it’s brighter. But it would be ideal when she is old enough to read herself as it can signal a time to go to sleep when it turns off or if she falls asleep reading it would turn off automatically rather than staying on all night. The first use of the light was actually while we were away visiting a friend, it was perfect was to settle my daughter to sleep in a strange environment without having to find a plug. The battery also means that it can be placed anywhere within a room without having to worry about being near a plug (hence my initial concerns about not being mains run are now gone). The light has been used each night since we received and the battery is still going strong. Quality good but found it had a small scratch on it which was only really noticeable when lit, not sure if this happened before or after taking out of package but does suggest that it could be easy to scratch. You get a product which while it’s only a night it has multi uses rather than one use as a night light alone. The different uses mean that it can be used for many years. Costs a little more than I would maybe like to pay however I liked the range of different colours, my daughter loved seeing the different colours come up and it was actually helpful to discuss the names of the different colours as they came up. Also liked the range of different designs which are available, lots to choose from meaning all tastes can be covered. I would purchase as I think that it is a good quality product which my daughter has loved having in her bedroom for bedtimes. Haven’t considered a basic nightlight before as didn’t need but this has the added benefit of the rainbow lights which are lovely and relaxing to watch. Am considering buying an additional one for my son. I would recommend as I think it would be beneficial as a basic night light for those children who need that low level light during the night and the design adds an element of fun to it. It can be used for a range of ages as the bright light allows for older children to read in bed and have a set time to settle down to sleep. I know some parents who have kids who are afraid of the dark and use night lights and I would be happy to recommend this as an alternative to the more traditional plug in light. This is a good quality product that has a lot of different designs so appeals to a good range of kids, it also has different setting which means it can be used across different ages ranges. Currently use with my 5 year old daughter but would be happy to use with my 1 year old as a light to help settle him to sleep. The instructions are clear and it is very easy to use, it can be placed anywhere in a room so can be placed where it is most effective for the child. Was very pleased to receive this to test as haven’t considered using a night light in the past so was nice to see how my daughter would react to having a light in her room. Gives something to add to bedtime routine and also allows for education as we were able to discuss the different colours as they appeared. Was very easy to use and my 5 yr. old was very happy to play around pressing the different buttons as using the remote to change the settings on it herself. The battery allowed for us to take it easily with us when we went away and meant it was easier to settle my daughter into a strange environment. Maggie Goffin – Jessica 5 Years

Awarded The Aloka SleepyLights 4.3/5

Good packaging, showed the product well. Images on the box showed the different colours. Overall I was excited to see how it worked. Packaging showed the product and what it does really well. It wasn’t over-packaged; there wasn’t a lot to go into the bin. I think it’s a good idea for a young baby. When Matilda was a few months old she loved looking at bright lights before falling asleep. The remote control is handy when you’re settling a baby as you don’t always want to get up to switch something on and risk waking the baby/ stopping them dropping off at the last minute! I actually struggled to find the instructions in the box. Because the packaging had a large clear section in the middle, the instructions are stuffed in one end and unfortunately this wasn’t the end I opened. The instructions themselves were fairly clear but I do think a lot of people wonder miss them and the use of light isn’t entirely intuitive. The light and the remote control were both fully assembled inside the box and the batteries inserted/ charged. I found you had to be fairly close to the light especially to get the colours to change. Other than that, it worked really well.Maybe Matilda is too young but she found the remote control very frustrating which I was surprised by as she had other lights with a similar remote control ( but slightly simpler) which she enjoys using herself. I used the cycling colours when I introduced it to her and to show her how it worked but when we tried it this way as a night light she found it too engaging and wanted to name the colours etc. For the nightlight, I used one colour at a time which worked better, providing enough light to see her and check she was OK enough to disturb her. I like to keep a dull light on as Matilda still wakes a couple of times in the night so it makes checking on her easier. This light was the perfect brightness first this purpose. I didn’t find the light bright enough for use to night read a book by. Maybe if it was an older child reading independently it would have worked for them. For her bedtime story we definitely needed something a little brighter. We didn’t take this on holiday as we haven’t been away since receiving the light but we would seriously think about taking this away in place of the battery power light we normally take. We did test the charge function and the battery did last well so I wouldn’t have any concerns when taking it away with us. It was OK but the owl’s ears are rather sharp so it could have done with some extra sanding or smoothing. I think it does in the long run because the batteries are rechargeable however it is quite expensive initially compared to other nightlight type products for children that play music or project onto the ceiling. I thought the range of pictures is really good and unusual for a nightlight which tends to just be stars or sheep or teddies. Matilda loves owls after reading the Gruffalo books so to be able to get an owl design for her was perfect. I would purchase this because of the design. I think we would have got lots of value out of it when she was a baby but I also think it is something that will last for a long time. I would recommend but for younger children than Matilda. Could do with some refinements but generally a good product. My experience was better than I expected when I initially read the description online. The light was larger than I had envisioned. I was a little bit disappointed with the finish and thought it could have been more refined. If I saw the product in store and could try it, I think I would be more inclined to buy it as the worth of it is easier to see in real life. I think it would be a harder sell online where there are a huge number of similar products at a similar price point which on the face of it do more. Emma Hutchins-Warren – Matilda 21 Months

I was happy with how the product looked when it arrived. Attractive packaging which shows off the product nicely and succinctly explains the features. I like that you can try out the colours whilst it is in the box.I like the fact that it is fun for the child, making them feel more secure at bedtime. I also like the fact that it turns off itself after 40 minutes. Nothing negative to say about the instructions. No problems setting the product up.The product is simple to use. I like the buttons with the colours on the remote. She’s still a bit young to operate it on her own. I think when she is older she will enjoy choosing the colours on the remote control. We used the colour cycle as she enjoyed watching the colours change.I did not use the built in sleep function as I always set it to turn off.A good nigh time reading lamp. It provides a nice amount of light near the book whilst keeping the room dark enough. We have not taken this away with us yet. It’s a nice design; it looks quite basic but does the job nicely. Even though I do like the product I personally wouldn’t pay £30 for it as I would probably find a cheaper (less fun) alternative night light.I loved the design is very cute and fun and there is a nice range of colours. I would not purchase unless I saw it on offer. It does what it does well, however I think for me it would be surplus to requirements. I would recommend if it were what they were after I would recommend it, for example if they had a child who was scared of the dark.I like the design and the functionality and the colours. It’s just priced a little higher than I would pay. Good experience with the product. It’s a cute, more interactive version of a traditional night light. Sarah McFarlin – Daughter
