Disclaimer: I was given the products in this post for the purpose of a review. I was not paid in any way to write this review. All opinions are my own.
As most of my readers know by now mommy and I are big advocates of reading and I have an extensive library for someone so little but mommy says that even though I may not know how to actually read it’s great to start reading before I do know how. I’ve been read to for as long as I can remember and my first book was Goodnight Moon which is still one of my favorite bedtime book. Reading not only helps with my vocabulary but it introduces a whole new world to me.
Speaking about bedtime, I had a nightlight that was not strong enough for mommy to see to read to me my bedtime story so mommy would usually turn on my lamp or sometimes even my overhead light which was so bright that once it was on I didn’t want to go to sleep after that, so when Mobi Technologies Inc. sent me their AnimaLamp I was ecstatic. Now I can read with a nightlight that was perfect for reading and was pretty to boot. If you’re not a fan of monkeys there is a pink bunny and a giraffe for you to choose from.

The AnimaLamp is portable which means that I can take my monkey with me anywhere. It does have an AC adapter but it comes with a built-in rechargeable battery so mommy can put the adapter away from me after all that’s not something I should be playing with. The instructions stated that I needed to charge it for at least 6hrs before I used it to protect the battery life so that’s what mommy did. Once fully charged it was ready for use and I couldn’t wait to use it.

It was very easy to use. There is an on/off button that is controlled fully by touch and I loved touching it and watching the light go on and off. The light is fully adjustable so if I didn’t want it for reading I can turn it down. Mommy was able to do this by simply touching and holding the on button. I’m not a big fan of the dark so mommy used it as an extra nightlight instead of the one that is plugged into the outlet near my bed and with the easy adjustable brightness control she was able to set it to the right amount of light I would need if I ever decided to wake up.
Since this is a LED nightlight it is cool to touch so you won’t have to worry about getting your little hands burned by the light. Hooray for that because I like to touch everything.
Mommy is going to demonstrate with a simple video she took. She decided to do it while I was sleeping and here I was thinking this was supposed to be my review. I wanted to show how it was done. Bad mommy!
It stated that the rechargeable battery will last 4 to 10 hours depending on the brightness level and when it begins to dim to recharge for 4 hours to return it to it’s normal operating levels. We can say that this was true. I was able to sleep for about 8 hours with no problem and with it working. Mommy just simply plugged it in and it was just like new again.
The Mobi AnimaLamp is perfect for bedtime reading and as a nightlight for your little one and gets my Two Tiny Thumbs Up!
