Eloise's eyes lit up upon seeing the irresistibly cute Giimmo and she raced over to snatch it from her brother. Thankfully he was happy to let her have a play with his new toy/night light and giggled as she cradled it and called it her "bubba".
That night as Cameron went to bed, we sat and watched in anticipation as we turned the Giimmo on for the first time. I have to admit, before seeing it I was worried it might be a bit like a bad disco with a rainbow strobe! Thankfully it was nothing like that bad disco image and in fact was very relaxing to watch as it slowly went through all the colours of the rainbow with it's soft light. I tucked Cameron in and said goodnight, but as I walked out I noticed that he had quickly grabbed "Rex" and smuggled him into bed beside him.
The Giimmo light isn't hot to touch, so perfectly safe for bedtime sleep-overs. It can also be set to either plain 'on' or touch-light mode, a feature that Cameron for one finds very amusing (on-off-on-off!). I leave the Giimmo on all night, in case Mr 4 wakes to go to the toilet. The Giimmo is perfectly portable too so actually goes with him! It does need a charge each morning if left on overnight, but it's so simple that Cameron now plugs it in himself to charge each morning when he wakes up.
I would highly recommend the Giimmo light, it's the perfect pairing of cute aesthetics and practicality. The only problem I am having with it is deciding which cute critter to get for my daughter's room!
