Here is a nightlight pillow called appropriately enough, the Bright Light Pillow. This is similar to the Dream Lites nightlight pillow by the makers of Pillow Pets, except these pillows are in the shapes of hearts, squares, and other boring and uninspired shapes.
The lights in the pillow are LED and they say they will never burn out, and also, they do not emit any heat. So you don’t have to worry about Junior suffering from any third degree burns to his face. That’s reassuring.
How a kid can fall asleep with his pillow shinning in his face, I’ll never know. But who cares? Kids seem to love these things. The lights in these pillows also change colors automatically. It does use 3 AA batteries, so you’ll have to switch those out from time to time. There’s no mention as to how often you’ll need to replace the batteries, so if you have firsthand experience or knowledge with this latest entry into the nightlight pillow war, please leave what you know in the comments. The website says it works for ‘hundreds of hours’ which will go by pretty quick when it adds up 8 hours at a time.
I also can’t tell if you have to turn it on and off or if it comes on automatically when you lay your wee little head on the pillow. So many questions and so few answers. This is an As Seen on TV product, after all, so I shouldn’t be surprised. Also, please let the world know if you receive your order quickly, how customer service was, etc.
