Boon Glo Review and... GIVEAWAY!


As you may know, we really like Boon here and I have blogged about a couple of their products (Squirt, and Animal Bag) before. Today I bring you the review of one of the most anticipated products in our home, the Glo.  I've been wanting to review the Glo since before it was available for purchase, the fist time I saw it online it was instant awe.



The Glo is a color changing nightlight, with balls that glow in the dark when removed from the base. Now don't worry, these balls aren't electronic- and they don't need batteries! 

I was a little mislead when I looked at Boon's pictures on their site. If you go take a look, you can see that in the gallery the pictures make the balls look like they glow whatever color the base is set to. That isn't the case. They glow a glow-in-the-dark green... like this:


Not that this made the kids like them any less!

The balls are a very lightweight plastic, they reminded me a lot of ping pong balls. Not heavy, or hard...no worries about kids tossing them around and getting hurt. Since the balls are charged by the base, the glow does fade after about 30 minutes or so unless they are returned for another charge. 

The actual base is so much fun! There is a slide button on the base that allows you to change the colors, or have the colors change on their own. I personally love watching the colors change from one to the other, so I like the multi-color option the best. The kids enjoy them all, and for a while we were doing a different color each night. 

Just some of the colors that the Glo has.
The best thing about this product is that it is a soothing nightlight that I feel safe about. I've heard a lot of horror stories about plug in mini-nightlights causing fires, since this is a different kind of nightlight it is much safer. We seriously never used nightlights because of the risk of fire. Now I can give my children some peace from their fears of the dark, and myself some peace from my fear of my house going up in flames. 

We really enjoy the kids going to sleep easier since they have soft light to ease their fears.

I was provided with the Boon Glo for review purposes. I received no monetary compensation and all opinions are my own.


WIN IT!

Courtney @ Joy Of Momma Joyner said...

Boon is AWESOME! But honestly, this night light is the most interesting to me. I want to have a safe night light for Big Sis's room. We have a little dog thing for the Baby's room, but right now we use a lamp with a dull bulb in it in Big Sis's room. Something like this would be more fun! :)

I would love the Bubbles for my daughter. We have only a couple bath toys for her. THe rest all have some sort of hole in them and they hold water and get all moldy and nasty if we use them in the tub. I would love the Bubbles for some good clean fun for her.
