I bought this for my toddler who has begun to complain about the dark when going to bed at night. I was under the impression that these Glow Lights are ideal for young children in this circumstance. As we are all Lego fans in our household, I chose this model of a design that has been produced in lots of different styles.
As a toy, my toddler loves it. He has spent a lot of time switching it off and on, raising it from it's plinth and taking the Lego character out of it's box, and putting it back in again. I am sure that he will continue to love this product as he gets older because it is very nice looking.
However, I am disappointed, and wish I had not bought it - seeing as it is quite expensive for something that doesn't actually do what I hoped it would do. It seems to give off hardly any light at all, even in the darkest of rooms. The 'Torch' just is not bright enough to be called a torch as far as I am concerned. The 'changing colours' also seem to me to be weak and barely recognisable.
It will not be used as a comforter at night at this stage, though I will keep it safe for my son to enjoy when he is older. (I have found another product which does a much better job - which you can also buy on Amazon and was given to my son as a gift - and that is the Toy Story Alien plush with Light Up Eyes.
