Flashlight Friends Review
If you have small kids, I am sure you have seen the phase where they want to keep the lights on at bed time. Actually my 5, and 4 year old both do this. It's really no fun for anyone involved. How can you sleep with the lights on? So I go in after they finally fall asleep and turn the lights off. Hoping that they stay fast asleep. Sometimes it works, other times not so much. They often will wake at 5 am as well. That really stinks for me since I get to bed around midnight. Can you say zombie mommy?
When we were asked to review the Flashlight friends, I thought it would be a great opportunity to share with my kids. Both of them love it! My daughter uses it more often, but wishes she had the unicorn! We received the green dragon to review. The packaging is open faced, and is easy enough to free from it's box. A winner for sure there.
Flashlight Friends are huggable and lovable. These adorable plushy characters have a cool to the touch LED light that is activated but gently pushing on the light source twice. There is even an automatic 10 minute shut off. This is great for kids that like to fall asleep with the light on. The batteries seem to last quite a while.
Flashlight Friends are available in Pink Unicorn, Black Penguin, Green Turtle, Blue Puppy, Purple Panda, and Green Dragon. styles and have a nifty little loop that lets little hands carry them around with ease. For ages 4 and up. Flashlight Friends require three AAA batteries that are not included. To install the batteries, simply open the Velcro closure, unscrew the plastic cover with a small Phillips-head screwdriver and add the batteries. Then replace the cover, tighten the screw, and close the Velcro closure back up.
Flashlight Friends are to ease the fear of the dark, be used as a nighttime reading light, playing games, or for traveling. Each Flashlight Friend has a suggested retail price of $19.99 plus shipping and handling.
They are also available at most retailers such as Walmart.
Flashlight Friends are a product of Idea Village and are made in China.
