I got the Tyke Light Jr. for my two year old son in blue. He currently uses a glow worm that plays music as his night light. The glow worm has a very dull light and my son was trying to use it to read books also it would shut off after each song meaning he would have to press it continually.
I saw the Tyke Light Jr. on another site, they had a one day deal on them but not a color I wanted so I purchased it here.
I liked the idea that it would stay on for 15 minutes before shutting itself off. This would free my son from messing with it and allow him to drift to sleep rather than worry about pressing it again. The light is still dull but the blue glow is rather pretty.
That being said this is a great idea but like many it leaves room for improvement.
The Tyke Light is hard, durable yes, but I would rather it be plush or coated in silicone to give it a little give. Remember, children roll at night and this hard thing in the bed or crib will most likely cause the child discomfort at some point.
The unit has a very tiny button (5mm or 3/16 ") on the bottom to turn it on, marked only by the power symbol and is completely flush. This took my son a little while to figure out and I am still not sure he fully understands. There are 4 settings that you can toggle through using the power button.
High setting with 15 min timer..
Low setting always on..
High setting always on..
There is a small red light that tells you is it is in timer mode.
I am glad they thought this needed features but how do I explain these settings to a 2 year old?!
The feature that drew me to this was it's timer, Kids will just repeatedly push the button and if it is on a setting with no timer than you will be replacing the batteries the next day. This was a gross mistake on the manufacturers part. They should have made it with High timed, Low timed, off....Simple is better.
I bought this nightlight because my 8month old can pull his out of the wall. I thought that I could leave it on low in his room for his night feedings. The low setting was too bright and it kept my son up. I ended up hitting the 15minute timmer, did what I needed to do in the room and then by the time I was done it would go out and my son could go back to sleep. The material is very hard plastic so he won't be able to have it in bed with him for a long time. Since he ended his night feedings, I have put it on a shelf until he is a little older and has a fear of the dark.
The battery door doesn't close well so it doesn't always have a good connection to turn on. It only works once every 3 nights. When it works - it works great. But I'm on my 3rd one and this one didn't work right out of the box.
I got this as a birthday gift for my son. He's just loves this nightlight. I like how it has a timer and has LED lights so it will never get hot to the touch. Great B-Day gift.
Kids love it and it is a good nite light for kids that are scared of the dark.
This was such a great buy. I loved having it when we went camping. It is the cheapest around. I checked for it at other sites and it was double the value. I highly recommend it to anyone.
This has been a life saver! I have two toddlers who were all of a sudden afraid of the dark. This was a great solution! This turns off after 15 minutes, the batteries last for a while, and it does not get hot.
The tyke light's have been dropped, thrown and played with and are still in GREAT shape. The blue light is a bit eerie but the boys love it. Each boy has renamed the Tyke light "buddy" and they go to bed with them each night. I'm very happy with this purchase
I was having problems with my 3 yr old waking with nightmares. So I purchased this night light for him. It has worked like a charm. It has a timer, he can turn it off and on and put it where ever he wants in his room. He calls it his buddy light. And with a fib from Mom...this buddy light keeps bad dreams away too! Win-Win situation!
I bought the Tyke Light Jr. Night Light for my 1st Grandson.When he stays overnight i give him the light he turns it on,holds it & falls fast asleep.Since then i have purchased one for each of my Grandson's.They all just Love this light.This light is Great it never gets hot has a Hi & LOW SETTING & automatically switches off after 15 minutes.It operates on 3AAA batteries ( which last a long time) with a child safe battery door.a beautiful light glow that kids just LOVE.
I got this for my 2 YO daughter and she LOVES it. So much so that I have to leave it outside of her crib or else she will play with it and not go to sleep :)
My only complaint is that if you have to turn it on in the middle of the night it can be tricky to find the little button on the bottom of the light. But, its not really a big deal.
Great for taking to the potty in the middle of the night.
Our security camera doesn't have night vision, we use this so we can see our baby in her crib at night and it works well enough. We'll probably have to get another one for it to really work for what we bought for. It is a pretty cool nightlight and safe around babies.
my almost-4-year-old son suddenly became afraid of the dark. i ordered 2 (1 green & 1 blue) and they worked like a charm! he loves that he can turn them off and on as he please! stock up on batteries though...
My son was having trouble sleeping after we moved to a new home. I bought him this light, and the first night we gave it to him, he drifted off to sleep with no problems. He loves his light and asks for it every night. I like that he can hold it. We tried a light that plugged in the wall, but he just kept pulling it out and trying to take it apart. He's already figured out how to turn his light on and off by himself. He's not even 2 years old. The light is just that easy.
I bought this for my 1 1/2 year old. Its great, it does not get hot so he can hold it. The timer is nice to help save on batteries and it has two different light settings, bright or dim.. It is very durable. I want to get one of the big ones now for my older son's room..
He loves it! Especially since he doesn't like to sleep in the dark.
I bought this for my 2.5 yr old son. It is perfect for him to take to bed if he needs to and it also works great when he is walking in a room that might have 'monsters'. We bought one in green as well!
We bought two on these, one for each bedroom. We wanted something safe & cordless for our children's rooms. These are perfect! Small in size but has a bright glow, not too bright. The timer feature is great, 15 minutes and it automatically shuts off. It's also cute looking, good for a toddlers room. Great value for the price!
We have purchased 4 of these tyke lights now. They are my new favorite baby/toddler gift. My 4 year old loves his and the glow is perfect for checking in on a sleeping 1 year old. I also love that in case of a power failure you have a portable nightlight/flash light. We just replaced one that we used EVERY night on the full on mode for 1 year. Great life of this product for the price. Highly recommended.
I passed up on several more expensive brands from the baby super stores . This one is priced great and works awesome. Has timer, low battery saving mode, etc. My son loves it and sleeps better having the light warm glow in his crib.
This lil night light is perfect for my two year old! I love the timer option and it gives off the perfect amount of light...not too bright! Great product!
