To calculate the overall star rating and percentage breakdown by star, we do not use a simple average. Instead, our system considers things like how recent a review is and if the reviewer bought the item on Amazon. It also analyses reviews to verify trustworthiness.
This was purchased off our child’s wishlist. It’s the second of this type of night light we have. It’s really cute and gives off the perfect amount of light to keep our child feeling comforted instead of uneasy in the complete darkness. It has multiple colors and can be controlled by a gentle tap on the head. It’s really cute. Ours did not come with a remote like the other one we own (bear). I’m honestly not sure if it was supposed to because it was cheaper in price than the one that came with a remote. The lack of a remote is not a huge deal for us. The thing that IS a big deal to us (and the reason for 3 stars) is the fact that it did not come with an adapter to charge it. It just comes with a charging cord but you cannot plug it in. So I have to alternate the adapter I own between the two different night lights, which is often forgotten and therefore the nightlight is frequently dead. It’s frustrating. I really don’t want to buy an additional adapter but I’ll have to eventually for this to be used all the time. It would be nice if it came with everything needed to charge it. I wish the manufacturer would include the adapter and increase the price if that’s necessary. It’s really a big inconvenience.
On its basic setting it is way too bright for us to use as a nightlight. The only way to reduce the light dramatically is with the remote. We didn’t order the kind with a remote HOWEVER it came with one! At bedtime we tune it to the lowest brightness and change the color to pink (my daughters preference and also it’s not as glaring as the blues and basic white). This has worked out pretty well for bedtime.
As for looks, well it’s adorable. My daughter loves it. The silicon is really thin and much more flimsy than I thought it would be. It’s almost like a thick balloon. You can really feel the “empty spaces” when you touch it.
This is the CUTEST nightnight and absolutely perfect for toddlers. We are transitioning our toddler to her room so this is perfect because she wakes up in the middle of the night and it’s so bright she’s not scared and she carries it to come into our room. I love how it has the white lights dim and super bright and then the rainbow setting that you can tap to choose a color. So happy with this purchase!
This was purchased as an at home and travel nightlight for our 3 year old daughter who is afraid of the dark. The white light has two brightness settings, both of which we consider to be very bright. It virtually lights up the entire room. Some of the colors are a more desirable brightness, like the red or the blue. Unfortunately our daughter prefers not to sleep with those colors.
During a trip our whole family slept in one bedroom and the light unfortunately made it difficult for everyone to fall asleep besides our 3 year old.
On the bright side (no pun intended) our daughter absolutely loves the light. It is very durable and super cute. She plays with it as a toy around the house. We love the charging feature and when fully charged it lasts through the entire night no matter the brightness setting. The tap to change brightness/color is slightly tricky at first to figure out, but is actually very easy once you do.
We do wish the light was overall dimmer because we are worried about it becoming more difficult for her to accept darkness during sleep. It’s also a bummer that it’s too bright when sharing a room with others who prefer darkness. This is ALMOST the perfect portable nightlight.
The plug for this cat is very hard to take in and out as it's behind rubber. After just a few weeks of use the plug can't be plugged in anymore as a spring inside busted. Not too happy with the design of this cat as my child loved it prior. I had to re order another one but this time bought the dog version which is a much smarter design with the plug design.. ( update - the dog lasted literally a whole week before it wouldn't turn on again ) I'd avoid this product, not a happy customer!
This light is so cute and it mostly works, but you have to tap it a million times to get it to respond. No matter where I tap it or how much pressure I apply it is really sporadic. Sometimes it skips straight to colored lights, sometimes it doesn't turn on or off at all. Sometimes if I barely touch it at the base it'll turn on, but then if I firmly tap it where you're supposed to it won't work. It's definitely not the best. But it's so cute and I really want to love it so I may keep trying for a while...
I have had this night light for my daughter for a little over 6 months. It is very cute and has color options that she can choose from. Unfortunately a couple of months passed and charging was an issue. Even though it flashed green, the battery didn't last. We worked around it, once it gave us the green light that it was fully charged, we would reconnect it and it will charge again until it was green a second time. Now it has stopped charging all together. So my recommendation is not to buy the one that is for charging. Buy the one that is connected to the wall. My daughter used it daily, so it lasted for not even a year.
