I am always fascinated by the small little things that they think of, such as the on/off button on the AnimaLamp that has touchable brightness control. Instead of making just a switch, kids can easily just tap it with their finger to adjust the brightness. My son was so excited about the on/off switch that for the longest time all he did was turn the brightness up until it turned off! That may seem silly, but think of the multitudes of times your children might come to you asking, “Can you turn this on?” The AnimaLamp is very lightweight, he can pick it up and handle it himself, carry it to wherever he wants and turn it on and off all by himself. That matters to little guys who are trying to do things on their own!
Last week we had this bad storm come through and half our town was without power. We really thought we’d lose it as the lights were flickering and our super powered lamp (that we purchased specially for storms!) was broken, for no reason. I saw the AnimaLamp on the floor where Judah had left it and realized how perfect it was! So I set it on the couch in case the power went out. Then I got to thinking how perfect it was for children during these times. For one, you wouldn’t have to use unsafe candles. Also, it is their lamp so they can feel helpful and safe because it’s more comforting having a bright light come out of an animal than it is to have some foreboding storm lamp.
There is also a little Bunny AnimaLamp that would be perfect for Easter! It is small enough to fit into a regular sized basket and you can get a nice Easter book to go with it! And if it is too pink, you can always get the Monkey!
You can also think outside of the box and gift the AnimaLamp in many other ways (or use it for yourself!). You can make a special little basket for a New Mom, because the AnimaLamps are perfect for late night diaper changes and feedings. It’s perfect for reading in the backseat of a car without turning on the car lights and with 8-12 hours per charge, I still think this would make a perfect addition to a storm/home safety box.
We also received a WallMate that couples with the AnimaLamp as a Combo. I picked the Hippo, but there is also a little Tyke, a Monkey and an Elephant. The WallMate is the perfect night light. With a photocell sensor that turns on by itself when it senses it is dark and on when it senses daylight, you don’t have to worry about anything but what color your child might want his WallMate to be! It changes from green, blue and red, however you can turn it on rainbow mode and it will shift through all the colors. It uses LED lights so it doesn’t give off any heat and is cool to the touch.
Our little Hippo is in the foyer that separates the living room from the fireplace room. I’m not exactly sure how it ended up there, but I believe someone had the idea of having a light by which to follow at night. Or, it is acting as a guard-Hippo to our front door, thanks to my children. I’m sure if a burglar ever saw those rainbow colors he’d think twice about coming in! (Do NOT use the WallMate as a guard dog.)
These are wonderful, the AnimaLamp and the WallMate together. My son loves them, well I should say sons as my teen likes to borrow the AnimaLamp for reading. They’re safe, bright and colorful and can easily travel with you no matter where you go. If you are redecorating this Spring and/or looking for something to brighten up a room, these are perfect! Find a little animal that fits your child’s room!
Purchase: You can purchase the AnimaLamp for $24.95 and the WallMate for $9.99 in their store.
