Bestest Christmas Gift Guide – The Pabobo Dream Theater Night Light
Finding the right night light is a tricky thing, ins;’t it? You need something soft and soothing – but not too dim so that you can nappy change or soothe a poorly child without additional lighting.
And settling a fretful small child is so much easier with some gently moving light to watch for sleepy eyes, I find.
The Pabobo Dream Theater is one of the very best I’ve seen – I LOVE this little lamp!
Firstly, the light is just right – dim enough to be soothing not wakeful, bright enough to see your way across a the floor and do a nappy change.
Next, the sounds – importantly, you can select NO sound if you wish, but you also have the choice of a gentle lullaby-like tune (not annoying in the least, which makes a change) or – my favourite – bird song. I LOVE having it set to bird song!
Timer – you can set the timer to run, and gradually the sounds will tail off, and after a while longer (45 minutes in all) the movement and light stops too – a nice way for your child to drift to sleep.
The rotating scene is lovely (we have the underwater ‘Aquarium’ version, and we have to watch for the octopus to come round again!), and there are three versions to choose from – Aquarium, Jungle and Cosmos. They don’t project up the wall to create a scene around the room, it’s just a pretty light to look at, and soothingly hypnotic to watch at 2 in the morning. The holes in the top do throw a nice shimmery bubbley underwater effect upwards though, which is just as soothing to watch!
The fact that it is LED is important, obviously, as there’s no heat involved with the lamp, and small hands can’t reach the motor unit at all.
On top of ALL that, you can switch it to sleep mode which means that should your child wake and cry, the lamp will turn itself back on again.
Don’t underestimate this lamp – it’s designed (and works beautifully) for babies and toddlers, but my still-afraid-of-the-dark 9yr old also adores it…
The Pabobo Carousel Dream Theater children’s rotating night lights are available through Amazon, and average cost is £63.
