We were recently sent a Minions Illumi-mate Colour Changing LED Light from Spearmark for review. We received Dave (Stuart is also available). The twins are Minions mad and love this night light.
This Minions Illumi-mate measures approx. 8.30 x 8.00 x 13.20cm and is a great size for little hands (and quite lightweight as well). It is made from hard plastic and is very tough and durable. It the form of a yellow Minion, the head part slowly changes colour every few seconds rotating through yellow, green, blue and red (the box also shows a purple light but we haven’t seen that one). It requires 3x LR44 batteries (which are included and a screwdriver is need to remove the battery cover so little inquisitive fingers cannot get at them).
The LED light is not too bright so is perfect for bedtime. The on/off switch is on the bottom and is easy to use, the twins are 4 and can switch it on and off with not problems. It doesn’t get hot while in use, so don’t have to worry about them picking it up when it’s on and being too hot. The twins love this light and as they keep taking it from room to room with them as they love watching the colours change.
We have been using for a couple of weeks now (for around 15-20 minutes per night while they are going to sleep) and the batteries are still going strong. The feel and quality of the light is excellent (it has been dropped a few times).
This is an excellent portable and soothing child safe night light (cool to touch when on) and worth the RRP of £8.
