Glo Nightlight Review (Boon)

Glo Nightlight
What It Is

Kids will want to turn out the lights at bedtime thanks to the GLO nightlight. This multi-colored nightlight has three removable illuminated GLO balls. Just plug the nightlight into a wall outlet and slide the switch on the base toward the right. There are a variety of light color settings: red, orange, yellow, green, blue, purple, and pink. As you slide the switch, you'll go through all these colors and can stop sliding when you reach the color you want. If you slide the switch all the way to the right, the nightlight will automatically cycle through all the colors. 

But the balls can be used off the nightlight base, as well. To light them up, slide the switch until you reach the first click. The balls will light up white. Leave them in this position for two minutes before removing them from their pedestal, and you'll have glow-in-the-dark balls for playing a nighttime game of catch or for tucking into bed with your child. The balls fade to dark after 30 minutes.

The GLO balls and LED pedestal are cool to the touch.

Why Is It Useful?
For kids who are afraid of the dark, this nightlight offers a colorful way to help make bedtime a little less scary. It also has a cool design, so it will be something parents won't mind keeping out on a child's dresser during the day. Being able to play with the glow-in-the-dark balls off the nightlight and carry them to bed is also a fun feature, though the plastic balls aren't very cuddly, so you might want to just leave the balls on the nightlight where the light feature is better anyway and give your child a stuffed animal to cuddle up with.
Who It’s For
The GLO is recommended for all ages, but will be especially useful for toddlers and older children who are afraid of the dark.
What To Be Aware Of

While kids can bring the GLO balls to sleep with them, the base unit and adapter are not toys, and children should not be allowed to play with those parts of the product.

This nightlight does not have an automatic off. It will stay on as long as it is plugged in and turned on.

The balls are BPA-free, phthalate-free, and PVC-free.

The GLO measures 8.2 inches by 8.5 inches by 9.8 inches.
