One of my preschool son’s all-time favorite book universes is that of “The Pout-Pout Fish.” Deborah Diesen and Dan Hanna are geniuses, and to be honest, we probably have 10 Pout-Pouts at home, varying in iteration from “The Pout-Pout Fish and the Big-Big Dark” to “The Pout-Pout Fish and the Can’t Sleep Blues” The books are clever and fun, the rhymes stick with you for life (IYKYK), and the lessons learned are ones that both kids and parents can appreciate. So, if you’ve gotten to the “But I’m scared of the dark …” phase of toddler and preschool-hood, don’t be afraid to take a page out of Pout-Pout’s book: Use a night light to help them feel brave and confident — looking at you, Mr. Lantern Fish — and enlist the help of a “Snoozy Snuggly” to keep them calm and composed as they drift off to sleep.
Below, check out these 10 best night lights for kids. From a sweet little moon that goes along with their favorite bedtime story to a colorful snail that lives inside a solar-powered mason jar, these night lights promise a glow so nice you won’t have to go in their rooms more than twice (you know, to check in on them). We’ve even included a couple stylish, room-illuminating decor options, for the kids who might need a little something-something to go to bed, but who can’t shake the “night lights are for babies” misconception.
