We’ve come to expect innovative and refreshing design from our friends at boon. So it’s no surprise that the boon version of a nightlight is anything but average. In fact, it seems kind of silly to call Glo a nightlight because it’s really an art installation meets portable glowing baby-safe night lights.
We’ve seen the light. And it’s awesome. Kids will beg you to turn off the lights because that’s when Glo really shines. This multi-colored, interactive nightlight has removable, illuminated Glo balls that turn a night time game of catch into something extraordinary. And there’s nothing electronic in them, so they don’t get warm and they won’t break. You can even tuck them into bed with your child. The glow fades to dark after 30 minutes, helping them fall asleep. Bonus: 95% effective at keeping monsters away all night long.

Glo in Our “Nursery”
At the ABC Expo in the fall we had a sneak peek of Glo. To truly show off the product, the fun folks at boon set up a little dark room so we could play with Glo in all its glory. Malia and I had so much fun. And, at the time, if you’d have asked me where Glo would fit in our home I would have suggested my son’s room. I immediately changed my mind when Glo arrived a few weeks ago and it is now firmly established in its place in our home: our master bedroom.
As you know, we’re moving a few months after this baby is born so we aren’t creating a true nursery. Rather, the baby will stay in our room until we move. Even though we’re not creating a true nursery I do want to make a little nursery corner in part of our room for this little one and it now includes the Glo. But, I’ll be honest, even if the baby wasn’t staying in our room I think I’d want Glo in our room anyway! The modern design looks great in our black and white bedroom and it’s just plain cool, don’t you think?
Glo features a sleek design typical of boon products. It’s all white and has three arms each with a round “glo ball” at the top of each. The white base and the glo balls stay cool to the touch so you never have to worry about burning little fingers. The lights change color, which is pretty freaking fun to watch. You can adjust the light on a small sliding switch on the bottom of the base to pick one color, clear or on an automatic color-changing setting. The white setting also charges the glo balls so that when removed from the base they glow in the dark. The glo balls are light weight, BpA-free, Phthalate-free and PVC-free – in other words, they are safe for use from birth. And I also appreciate that the glo balls are light because, heavens knows, as soon as my son realizes he can throw one he will.
To Buy or Not to Buy
To Buy… The boon Glo is more than your average nightlight. It’s a color-changing light that is a perfect fit in your modern space, whether a nursery or master bedroom. I love how it functions as a solid unit and the fact that the glo balls can be removed for little security night lights is pretty amazing. I really love glo and think it’s the perfect addition to our master bedroom nursery corner.
Or Not to Buy… Glo is definitely more expansive than your typical, plug-in-the-wall night light but it’s not a really fair comparison.
