Best Solar Night Light for Kids – Mobi Glomate Plus Review
I have been doing some research for a solar night light for kids that I can give as baby shower and birthday gifts.
I’m happy to report that from my research and the many reviews I’ve read, I’m choosing the Mobi Glomate as my selection for the best solar night light for kids!
What folks are saying
Here are a few excerpts from the posted reviews:
My 11-year old granddaughters think the Mobi Tykelight GloMate Plus is `Totally Awesome!’ He is their chosen nightlight because they love his shape and colors. They also use him as a flashlight if they need to get up in the night.Suffice to say, this will probably be a great toy and security light for those naps or fussy nights where baby doesn’t want to settle down all too quickly. I recommend this in every way, for a night light, safe baby companion, and a teething toy of sorts as well. It has Grandpa’s seal of approval!This is exactly what I was looking for. This nightlight has the option of having it turn off after a set time or staying on the whole night. It is rechargeable so we aren’t wasting batteries. It also had a bonus feature – we can pick the color that we want the light to be: green, blue, red or rainbow. My 4-year-old loves it.
These reviews definitely have approval from kids, parents to grandparents.
What exactly is a Mobi Tykelight?
- The size is 5 x 2 x 5 inches and it weighs 12 ounces
- The surface is soft to the touch, durable and impact resistant, smooth surface no sharp or rough edges
- It’s all white BPA and lead free
- Sits on charger base with built in rechargeable lithium ion battery that lasts for hours
- Option for a 15 minute timer mode and then to go off
- Option to set one color (red, blue, green, yellow) or cycle through all the colors
How does it work?
From A. Abrams in Vermont:
The Mobi charges on it’s base which has a red ring of light (very dim) around base that changes to green when it is fully charged (an hour or so). Lifting the Mobi off of base turns it on immediately to a soft green glow. It is capable of single colors in red, blue, green, yellow as well as a setting to allow it to go through a cycle of smooth and gradual color changes, displaying all the colors it offers. Additionally, you can hold down the power button on the bottom of the Mobi and it will cycle into a 15 minute timer mode and then go off. It’s sealed internal lithium battery is good for hours of use. I’ve not yet tested how long it will go on a charge, but, I’m guessing for 6-9 hours minimal. The light it puts out will illuminate a room with a soft and low amount of light. There’s enough to see by, yet, not too much to distract a baby who’s drifting off to sleep. Some of the colors by nature of their hue, appear a bit brighter the others, so you have a selection of lighting brightness in a sense as well. So to summarize, the Mobi for what is is; a toddlers nightlight and bed companion (to keep the scary things away!) is superbly designed.
From all accounts, it’s safe, durable, fun, colorful, comforting, helpful (for the middle of the night trips to the bathroom) and a friend to the lucky child who has one (not to mention energy efficient!).
