Ikea Spoka Nightlight
Advantages: strong, safe, colour changes, small and lightweight
Disadvantages: bit pricey
Spoka is a small night light or bed light which is exclusively available in IKEA. 'Spoka' in Swedish means spooky or haunted and hence its name. It is designed by Bodrul Khalique for IKEA.
It costs £12.25 normally and I know that it is quite expensive bed lamp especially when it is not associated with any characters from TV shows or movies. I bought it when they had a sale for around £10.
It is quite small and lightweight and can be easily kept and moved around anywhere in the room. I keep changing my kid's room settings and hence it is quite handy to have something that I move. And since it is so small, i keep it on the edge of the bedside table. It is shaped almost like a very big egg but with a flat base. It has two eyes and a nose and two ears popping out- kind of looks like a small rat.
It is made of silicone rubber and it has a smooth and softish feel. If it falls down, it wont harm anyone or break. No bulbs are exposed and no untidy bits outside for kids to meddle with.
It works with battery and mains power. 1 rechargeable AAA 3.6V NiMH battery is included. When fully charged, it glows for nearly 4-5 hours, but not enough to last through the dark night hours. Would have been better if it could last for atleast 8 hours.
It keeps changing the colours- blue, green, pink/ purple. The colour approximately changes every 5-6 seconds. if you need to lock the colour, just press the switch. Press again and you can turn it off without turning off the mains.
My kid was amazed watching it for many days- he used to love watching it change colours and would fall asleep.
The light's brightness is perfect for the night- not too bright but still good enough to keep your eyes on the kids. And since it is so safe and strong, it is perfect for the kid's room or nursery. But it is not for recommended for kids under 3 years and it is not to be confused for a toy.
Summary: Definitely recommended for children's room
