Worlds Apart Thomas the Tank Engine Go Glow Night Bright - Review

With the clocks due to go back this Sunday (26th October) and nights getting darker, Go Glow conducted a survey asking why children under five years old were afraid of the dark. Out of 1,000 participants, 67% cited monsters being the main reason.

7 in 10 parents said that they walk around their child's bedroom with them at bedtime to prove that there are no monsters hiding. Three quarters of children also get out of bed to seek reassurance from their parents. The survey also found that nightlights were the most reassuring solution that helped stop scary shadows.

Worlds Apart sent C one of their Go Glow Night Brights so he could banish monsters. If it is set down it glows as a nightlight then if it is lifted, it works as a bright torch.

C received a Thomas the Tank Engine design. It also comes in Barbapapa, Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles, Peppa Pig, Fireman Sam, In The Night Garden and My Little Pony. The familiar characters will put your child at ease then if they 'hear a monster' they can easily lift their torch by themselves and check. It's so simple for children to use by themselves as there are no fiddling buttons, you just need to push it down to activate the nightlight and the torch works automatically when lifted.

The battery is rechargeable which I think is a great idea as I can charge it up during the day, meaning I won't need to have dangerous leads hanging out in C's bedroom while he is unattended.

C seems to really like his new nightlight and the torch is a completely new concept to him so he's very excited with it. I like it because the design is so sleek and not unsightly.

The Go Glow Night Brights retail at £22.99 and is suitable for children 12 months+. You can find out more about Worlds Apart on their website, Facebook and Twitter.
