GoodNiteLite: For the love of God, let me sleep… oh

This odd nightlight is actually quite interesting. You set the “wake-up” time on this thing and plug it in in your kid’s room. You then explain to Junior that when the sleepy moon is shining it’s time to sleep. Then, when it’s time to wake, happy sunshine face lights up and you say it’s time to get up and bother you. This is a great tool for young kids who might not understand a clock face or “Go to bed, it’s 4am.”

Children rapidly come to associate the dim unobtrusive moon image with the knowledge that it is still bedtime and they should go back to sleep. At the time you choose in the morning, the Good Nite Lite will brighten and display a cheerful “Sun” caricature letting the child know that is time to wake up and permissible to get out of bed and start the days activities. During the day, the Good Nite Lite automatically shuts itself off to eliminate any distractions and to conserve energy.

They’ll be available next month for an undisclosed amount.
