One thing that inevitably comes with being a parent is dealing with a child's fear of the dark. You know, the dark can be quite scary with all of the monsters under the beds and Boogey-Men hiding out in the closets. Add to that bats, spiders,witches and Stranger-Danger, and it's no wonder that small kids often have a hard time dealing with this anxiety. Often, a simple night light will do the trick. Unless we're dealing with MY kids. A small light plugged into the wall just doesn't seem to be enough sometimes. They cannot physically hold the light due to burn hazards, and many night lights just don't produce a very substantial glow. They might light up a tiny little corner, and that ends up backfiring, at least in my house. In poorly lit corners lay shadows, and where shadows are present, there MUST be those creepy-crawly things that like to go bump in the night. This classic dilemma has plagued children (and their exhausted, weary parents) for generations.
I have been searching high and low for a better solution for these night time fears that would be safe, comforting, and allow my kids to fall asleep faster and more soundly at night. That's why I was so excited when I learned about the GloMate Plus by MOBI Technologies. What is a GloMate Plus? It's probably the coolest night-light I have ever seen. The GloMate Plus is a huggable multi-colored portable light suitable for play, nighttime or travel. It’s BPA-free, safety tested, certified and made of impact-resistant plastic with an easy-to-clean surface so it can withstand heavy toddler use. Powered by heat-free LED bulbs it can lie in bed, slowly dimming over 15 minutes, to help your kidlets transition to a “lights-out” room. The light cycles slowly through red, green, blue and rainbow or can be set to remain on a solid color. The GloMate Plus automatically turns on when removed from the charging station or in the event of a power outage. The built-in battery is good for up to a 10 hour charge.
The GloMate Plus is absolutely adorable, safe, and is durable enough to withstand heavy toddler use. (Or abuse, in my crazy daughter's case. The girl is not at all gentle.) Kids can squeeze, hug, and even throw the GloMate Plus and it will not break. Sophie definitely tried, too! The soft plastic is also incredibly easy to clean and you can wipe any mess from sticky little fingers away with a rag or even a baby wipe. Since there is no heat emitted from this product, it can safely be held in bed with no risk of fire or burns. Genius!
As a parent, I love that this product is simple to use. It is easy to charge, as it comes with a handy charging base that can be plugged into any standard household outlet. Once the GloMate Plus is fully charged, it will glow for up to 10 hours! This is enough for any child to get a good night's sleep in its comforting, cheerful glow. I especially like that this product offers several color variations, including an ever-changing rainbow!
Take a look at how adorable the GloMate Plus is in action:
Overall, I love the MOBI GloMate Plus. This has become an absolute lifesaver in my home. My daughter loves holding and squeezing her little "baby". (Yes, she calls it a baby!) She often lays down snuggling her GloMate Plus, and it definitely helps her fall asleep faster and she stays asleep longer with her GloMate Plus by her side. I truly believe it gives my toddler an added sense of security, and that the colorful glow is soothing to her. I would definitely recommend the GloMate Plus to any families out there who are dealing with a child who is afraid of the dark. The MOBI GloMate Plus is a safe, non-toxic, and soothing solution to those bedtime battles.
