Thanks Crane for the review item to help with this post
Crane USA was founded in 2005 on the belief that design is an attitude and the home is a personal expression of an individual's lifestyle. We also realize that more than ever before people are looking to improve their health and their home environment. Crane is a company that recognizes these health concerns and people’s individual lifestyles.
I first worked with Crane USA in the Fall of 2011 on a review for their Adorable Humidifiers line. The humidifier is still a big hit here so I was excited when I received an email asking if I'd like to review one of their new Belly Glo Night Light products.

This was great timing because we had been discussing a night light for baby Macyn's room. It arrived in the mail just days before her 1st birthday party, so after wrapping it up for fun, we immediately started using it as her night light. 

  • Puts light where your child really wants it… right by the bed

  • Turns on automatically when it gets dark
  • Runs up to 8 hours per charge
  • Removable Belly Bulb plugs into the wall to recharge
  • Both pal and bulb included

I really love having this night light. While there's only three options to choose from, Macyn has completely fallen in love with her little duck and can now reach where I set it so she sleeps with it at night. Macyn's room has one window and at times I would notice the light bulb would be on even though there was light in the room so I think it got confused at times. There's an actual OFF switch I could use, but I don't really think about it most of the time.

Macyn's slept through the night since she was 8 weeks old, but there is the small occasion that she wakes up and needs something from me, and the Belly Glo Night Light does its job perfectly. I always have it on the rotating light of blues, greens, and reds but it lights up so well without being over powering. While this night light has the traditional soft white light feature, I find it a bit harsh for my baby. The alternating colors seem to be more soothing for her and peaceful in a way.

To charge the night light, you simply pop the belly out of your animal body, pull the prongs out, plug in, and then you're good to go for another 8 hours. I only need to charge Macyn's every couple days, so I think it can last longer than 8 hours on a single charge depending on the lighting in the room you have it in.

You can purchase any of the three night lights you see above from the Crane-USA website for $16.99/piece. I do feel that's a bit high for a product like this and could see a better price of $10-$12 vs. $17 but that's just me. They're listed for $20 on Amazon so it's the same price because of shipping fees.
