Bedtime Doesn’t Mean Lights Out
Were you ever afraid of the dark as a child? As this 2-minute film by award-winning short film maker David F Sandberg proves, sleeping in the dark can get rather scary sometimes. Wait, make that all the time. Especially if you had just watched a horror movie.
Are you spooked yet? Well, imagine how your kids must feel when they have to sleep in the dark. With their over-active imaginations, it’s no wonder they much prefer to snuggle with you under the covers than have to deal with the shadowy figures in the darkest corners of their rooms. According to a study done by Philips, more than two-thirds of parents surveyed say that their children take up to 30 minutes to fall asleep while more than a quarter take up to an hour to put their little ones to bed.
Do you face the same problem? Well, no worries! Philips has come up with a solution that will not only give your kids a sense of security during bedtime, but are adorable to boot too! Presenting…Disney Characters in a new light!
Philips and Disney SoftPals in Classic Mickey and Minnie Mouse, Sulley and Mike from Monsters Inc. ($72.90 each)
Psst! These SoftPals are soft to the touch and are my personal faves coz they won’t break even if your kid throws them onto the floor. And there is no complicated mechanisms to turn on the lights, just flip it and it’ll switch itself on!
Philips and Disney Light and Image Projectors in Cars and Princess ($38.90)
Lure your kids to sleep with their favourite Disney princesses or characters from the animated movie ‘Cars’ with these image projectors. They have different scenes to keep your little ones occupied so they’ll never remember about the monsters under the bed. XD
Philips and Disney Torch Lights in Winnie the Pooh and Jake the Pirate ($19.90)
How about some torch lights for some light play? These cute little characters will make bedtime so much more appealing to your kids.
Philips and Disney Night Lights in Mickey and Minnie Mouse, Winnie the Pooh, Cars, and Princess ($24.90)
Want some comforting lights on the walls? Then don’t forget to check out these night lights that you can mount onto the wall for some illumination that will not be too bright for your kids.
Cute, right? Child-friendly yet durable, these night lights will definitely help both you and your children sleep better. Tammy Fontana, a child sleep expert, said, “Suitable and quality lighting is important, and can help children and their parents get more peaceful sleep. The right night light can help train or correct your child’s sleeping behaviour for better development.”
