Kid’s Night Lights for Travel

Posted by on August 10, 2012


Circo LED Night Light

We just got this from Target for Ella in a mushroom design. They don’t have the mushroom one online, but this cute flower can be ordered at They also advertise a cute ladybug, a truck, and a dinosaur as available in stores. This plugs in to charge but can be unplugged and work off the battery. It’s very light, so it’s easy to pack. The instructions recommend ages 6 and up because of small parts within the nightlight, so if you’re using it for a younger child you might want to be sure it’s out of reach. I like this for our current sleep stage because it’s a pretty bright light and keeps Ella (age 4) from getting scared of creepy shadows in the room.

Cloud B Twilight Constellation Night Light

This is one I haven’t tried myself, but have always thought it would be nice. It will take up more room in the suitcase, at 14” long, 5” tall, but doesn’t weight too much. This nightlight has an automatic timer and shuts off after 45 minutes of use.

Tranquil Turtle

Cloud B also makes the Tranquil Turtle, which projects waves and also has soothing sounds. The downside to me is that is also shuts off after 45 minutes, and I like to play sound (white noise) the whole night to help with sleep.

Mobi TykeLight GloMate Carry Along

This MOBI TykeLight GloMate is really similar to the Circo Mushroom Night Light I got for Ella. It stays cool, so it’s safe to be handled. It charges on a base and the charge lasts 10 hours. This one is fun, with four color settings.

I started to try to find other options to suggest, but really I will have to say I recommend the Circo and MOBI ones the most. That is because of their small size and light weight. What do you use for a night light when you travel?
