Miffy the Rabbit Night Lights

mif

While I don’t go in for character products as a rule, Miffy is a definite exception. Dick Bruna’s little white rabbit is one of my favourites and I can’t get enough of her. My tummy did flip-flops when I saw these fabulous Miffy night lights at Olive Loves Alfie. Simple, pure, glowing brilliance. The larger […]

Longtime readers will know I’m mega partial to pop art designer Clifford Richards whose work is on display at the V&A and he’s also got a great range of toys and accessories. He’s also the person behind these solar powered night lights made from mostly recycled and also recyclable powder coated steel. There’s an elephant, […]

OXO Candela Double Tooli Night Light

OXO-Candela-Double-Tooli-Night-Light-Blue-and-Green-Mamas-Papas.jpg

For about seven or eight years, I’ve been a fan of NYC based OXO’s Good Grips range of kitchen products as they’re well designed, functional and very attractive. You’ll instantly recognise their kitchenware as they tend to feature very comfortable black rubber cushion handles and they’ve now got what were originally called Candeloo lights under […]

These decorative night lights are the hotness and serious style on a budget for only £7.50-£9.50! Made from plastic and using LED lights keeping them cool to the touch, they’re highly decorative, tick the woodlands, animals, and toadstool trends, and all that’s left to decide is whether to go for a rabbit, owl, or toadstool. […]

Sparky Dog Light

As owners of two Magis puppies and a My PetLamp Dachshund Light by Offi, it was forgone conclusion that I’d be an instant fan of the Sparky Dog Light. With adorable detailed features (I’m convinced Sparky has a hint of a smile), they’re made from cool to the touch plastic resin, and are available in […]

If you’ve gone down a ‘theme’ route and opted for a bit of a fairytale vibe or even a nature theme, you have to consider including one of these retro styled mushroom and toadstool lamps by German company Heico. Oddly, the company created the nodding Dachshund that graced the back of many a car in […]

Light up your child’s room with our current pick of stylish animal themed lamps, wall lights, and night lights. One of my favourite online stores, Nubie, really hits the right note with unusual children’s lighting by hip US brand Offi. Take your pick from either the stylish My PetLamp Dachshund Light (left) or the Howee […]

Low Energy ‘Moonlight’ Night Light

Whilst I’m a sucker for a sexy looking, funky piece, I’m equally a sucker for great, minimal design and the Moonlight night light ticks the boxes on the latter front. It’s a low energy LED light which uses the NASA technology which illuminates cockpit panels. It plugs into your normal wall socket and generates a […]

Hot New Shop – Nubie

Dachshund Light by Offi

Kat writes… Sometimes finding a new baby store is a seriously exciting moment and finding Nubie was just one of those moments. I can’t even repeat what Natalie said when I sent her the link but needless to say she had to hide the credit card… Nubie is packed with well selected, high design baby […]

Grobag Night Light

Natalie writes… I’ve been meaning to feature the Grobag Night Light(R) for while as it’s one of those practical, multitasking products that you wonder why nobody thought of it earlier. In a nutshell, this fits between the your light fitting and the existing lightbulb and it contains a LED which automatically selects the main light […]

OXO Candela Tooli Nightlights

I’ve been meaning to write about Candeloo lights (since renamed OXO Candela Tooli Nightlights) for ages! These quirky looking things are very popular night lights and they use a SafeCharge (TM) system which eliminates exposed electrical contacts. This makes them safe for your bambino to touch, say for instance when they carry them to the […]

My Newborn Favourite Things

My bambino is 24 weeks and in that time I have brought and tried out a lot of stuff and I have finally compiled my favourites. Grobag Swadling Blanket Some people don’t understand the need to buy specific swaddlers but after attempting to do it with an ordinary blanket and making a pigs ear out […]

Lumilove Night Light

When I was faced with the conundrum of hating turning on my lamp in the middle of the night to feed, plus making the room dark enough but with enough of a glow to make the bambino feel comforted, I decided to try one of these Lumilove’s. They come in five designs – kitten (what […]
