Review of Mystery Children Tap Control Night Light

I like goofy little gadgets and I have kids so cute little things like night lights are things I like to review sometimes for a change of pace. Up for review today I have a a whale shaped night light that uses taps or controls, so each time you tap it the color will change. It’s from a company called Mystery and it works well, it’s cute and it would be great for little kids or even adults who like cute things. Read on to learn more…


Specifications and Features

The light is shaped like a cute whale, it’s a white rubbery material and it has two eyes and a mouth at the front of course. The material is soft and the whale is hollow so you can fully squash it. The whale is about 4 inches high, and 6 inches long and then about 4.5 inches wide.

There is a large non-slip pad on the bottom which is also the switch. There’s a power button and a micro USB port for charging the internal battery.

So the description says the whale has 5 single colors and 5 color breathing modes but this one doesn’t and that’s not a bad thing in my opinion. This one has low soft white, bright soft white, white, green, red, blue and purple colors and that’s all it does, you can just change the colors by hitting the top or dropping it as the sensor is actually on the bottom.

So that was a quick review.

The whale night light works fine, it’s cute and squishy and I think kids will love it, I know my youngest son thinks it’s cute and like to bop or tap it.

The light seems well made overall so it should be able to withstand a lot of tapping and dropping.

One small issue is that the specs say different than what the whale actually does, to me it doesn’t matter as I like it the way it is, but some people might be expecting something else.

+Numerous lighting modes
+Well made
+Cute and squishy

-Doesn’t quite work like specs say
