YAY we love our owl light
YAY we love our owl light. My autistic toddler has trouble sleeping by himself as well as falling asleep so we thought to get him a nightlight. After reading horrible reviews of literally 50 other products I found this gem! It doesn't play music, the light is calming without being too bright to light up the whole room, the power button is easy to press and to find in the dark, and after 30 minutes it turns itself off. It's so sweet and my son loves it!

When it works, it's great.
So far I have a 33% success rate with this nightlight. It's so disappointing because when this product does work, it's perfect!
To date I have ordered three of these. Two owls and one butterfly. The butterfly, my three year old's nightlight, works wonderfully. It's held up to rough play and nightly use for over two years with no problems. It also doesn't run through batteries like her previous night light did. It's just bright enough to comfort and make it possible for her or I to see around her room, but dim enough that it's not disrupting her ability to fall asleep. And with a child who has childhood insomnia, that's a huge plus!
Unfortunately both owls I have ordered were duds. The first cracked when I was tightening the battery hatch back on and I was definitely not being rough with the screwdriver! We continued to use it for a little while because the light was okay but after only a week the crack extended so that the battery hatch wouldn't stay on, rendering the whole thing unusable. (Yes, we tried taping it but it wasn't holding the batteries in well enough).
The second owl, after a week of regular use, decided that it would only light up every third or fourth time we pressed the button and even then it was super dim. Considering I use it in the middle of the night for my second daughter's nighttime feeding, that quickly grew irritating. I tried new batteries a couple times and that did nothing to solve the problem. So now I have one out of three working night lights.
I'd love to have a working version of this night light because our butterfly works so well! But I won't be purchasing another to see if I get lucky. I don't like my odds!

Love this little nightlight!
My son loves this little nightlight. The fact that he can take it into bed with him has been a huge help. I like that it only has one button to turn it on and off, so there is no goofing it up or changing settings, which he has done on his Ok to Wake clock/nightlight. I also like that it fades on and off rather than a harsh switch on and off. I wish there were different brightness settings, but it doesn't seem to be too bright for my kiddo.

Okay but light is way too bright!
The light is cute. I like the large on/off button and auto off feature. I only gave it three stars because it's actual light is extremely bright. This is the last thing you'll want flashed in your eyes at 6am. This company makes a monkey version which has a much softer light. I'd recommend getting that one instead of the owl.

Kids like it, and it can take a beating and still work.
This thing has taken a beating. My kids fight over it, and it has been thrown against the wall, dropped countless times. Keeps working. Other nice things include, unlike a traditional nightlight, if your child unplugs it, then what? Now you have an outlet they can try to stick their little finger in. Also it's good for travel because they have it with them, versus a traditional nightlight, where it would be in a different spot than they are used to. Big fan.

Perfect For The Car (And Screaming Baby)!
My 7 month old has hated the car from the time she was tiny. She screams the entire time we are driving. It isn't her car seat--she is fine walking around the store, getting fastened into it in the house, even sitting in the car when there is someone in the backseat with her. But when it is just me driving around, I get to listen to an unhappy baby.
I realized a couple of months ago that part of the problem was the light in the car. She is less screamy during the day than she is at night, when she can't see anyone or anything. I got her a Fisher-Price Sooth and Glow Giraffe, thinking that would help. It did--momentarily. The giraffe's light turns off after 5 minutes. When this little nightlight went on lightning deal, I bought it on a whim. And boy am I glad I did! It has been AMAZING! This little light isn't too bright, is easy to turn on and off, is the perfect size for little hands to grasp, and is so cute! Driving with this has been like night and day! My baby knows it is hers and holds onto the handle when I put her in the car. It isn't dark anymore so she doesn't scream nearly as much. I LOVE THIS TOY! It is so good at what it does and is so great for what I need it for! Thank you, Skip Hop, for making a traveling nightlight! I am so grateful for it!

I've been using this since baby was about 6 months old for night time feeds and diaper changes. The blue light isn't harsh and I can put it near the diaper changer so I can see what I'm doing without baby really waking up. Love that it has a timer, fades off, and the button is easy to find and easy to push. We've had this about 8 months now with no problems. Love it.

pretty pink light (a bit bright
...and no more midnight wake ups for the adults! Cute, pretty pink light (a bit bright, but that's the point, I'm sure), and kid feel comfy. Done. Skip Hop always delivers.

I bought this item for my daughter who is currently night training, in case she had to use the bathroom in the middle of the night. It was well worth the $13 and more. She loves it so much! She loves to fall asleep with it on. I love that it automatically turns off after 20 minutes (i was worried that she would just leave it on all night). It’s bright but not terribly bright. Great product!

very cute and works well
i bought the monkey light for my son and i love it. it puts off a very soft yellowish light that helps give my 4 year old son enough light so he isnt scared and can see what hes doing, without keeping him awake with too much light. Im not sure its quite enough to read by, but it could be if it was brought closer to the book. very very cute light, and i love how it goes off by itself after a while. highly recommend!
