Philips myBuddy Table Lamp
Great safe light that's easy for little hands
I'm pleased with this light. It delivers what I wanted. It's a safe enclosed light, strong enough to read by, that is touch sensitive.
Touch sensitivity is good. My 3 year old can manage it easily but it's not so sensitive it turns itself on in error.
Good warm colour lamp light for reading.
Soft glow night light, just the right low level of brightness.
The moon night light turns into a sun at a chosen time, but no increase in light level, so it doesn't wake the child if they're still asleep.
Sturdy and seems to be fairly hardy. It's survived packing for holiday and a 3 year old repeatedly hitting it on the head to turn the light on.
Low power usage.
Decent length power cord.
Easy to use.
My son thinks it's great and finds it very reassuring at night.
No internal battery, so if you unplug it you have to reset the times.
The night light stays on all day unless you manually turn it off, there's no automatic shutoff once the time for the sun has been reached.
It is a bit plasticky, but it's decent quality plastic and doesn't look cheap.
It is overpriced for what it is but I couldn't find any other kids touch sensitive enclosed light.
Overall, I'm happy with the purchase.
