The animal lamp is quirky, creative and has an innocent, light-hearted feel to it. I didn’t purchase it for myself though, I purchased it for my daughter from Ivy and Wilde. Recently she’s had trouble sleeping in the dark (I think she’s been reading too many horror stories!) so I needed to find something that would relax her before bed, but still look nice in her room. Being a young girl, I wanted something more playful and quirkier – rather than a normal boring lamp.
Being slightly old-fashioned, I tend to buy on the high street as opposed to online, so I was a little apprehensive to make the purchase. But the free shipping was a nice little persuader, and the rabbit looked adorable. I work as an interior designer so my own house, as you can guess, is very purposefully designed. The products I buy all add to the ‘look’ I have gone for. With my daughters’ room, I wanted quirky-meets-girly. The rabbit in itself could very well be placed in an adult room, but with the soft hues and minimal design of my daughters’ room, the rabbit casts a lovely warm glow – especially at night.
The shipping went smoothly and arrived quicker than I expected. With a little trepidation, I opened the package. The first thing I noticed about the night light was the size – not big enough to be imposing but still took the focal point of the desk that I placed it on. It fit well into the room, especially because of the neutral colour. I could see this working well for either gender, because it doesn’t particularly radiate a girly or boyish feel. My little girl took to the night-light immediately – she barely gave me time to screw the LED bulb in! While this is both cute and annoying, my daughter is a little finicky when it comes to decorating – I guess she’s a mini me. But it seemed to appease her inner fussiness – especially when night came around and we turned off the main light to see how the night light stood in her bedroom. As the product description states, the low-key light it gives off is perfect for bedtime. It provides enough light to be a comforting fixture, without being bright enough to disrupt sleep. We’ve had some difficulties recently when it comes to getting a restful night’s sleep, but the night light is definitely helping her feel comfortable when the sun goes down.
Being a lightweight structure really impressed me too. It was easy to lift up and assemble the LED bulb into, and also means that if my little adventurer decides to faff with the night light, it won’t cause too much damage if it falls on her! It definitely feels less than 2kg, but it doesn’t take away the high-quality feel of the night light. It’s definitely child-friendly, and I would 100% recommend this to other mums looking to add a little flare of quirkiness/cuteness to their child’s bedroom.
