Gummy Bear Nightlight. To help my son get over his fear of the dark, I decided to give him my old nightlight. My nightlight was based on a video game character that was popular when I was a kid. When my son saw the nightlight, he recoiled in fear, because the face on the nightlight was creepy to him. He didn’t want to use it and was afraid that he would have nightmares.
I tried to think of something that would work as a nightlight, while looking gentle enough not to scare my son. I did some brainstorming while eating a few Gummy Bears, and I came up with an ingenious idea. My son loves to eat Gummy Bears, so he would love to have a Gummy Bear Nightlight. There’s nothing particularity scary about a nightlight that looks like a candy bear. I purchased a red bear nightlight, which is my son’s favorite color.
The nightlight runs on a couple of batteries and it can be turned on by pushing in its stomach. When my son saw the nightlight, he smiled and turned it on. I mounted the nightlight on his wall and when I tuck my son into bed, I turn on the light and he gets a good rest.
