Stuffed animal night lights- suggestions?

My son will get up and turn on his light. But we plugged in night lights, and he just pulls them out, which we don't feel is safe for a 4 year old. Anyone recommend a soft, stuffed night light that is under $30. The turtle with the stars look cool, but I a m afraid he would quickly break the shell made from plastic. And you have to put it on the floor in the middle of the room. I remember my brother had a "glo worm" in the 1980's when he was a preschooler.

  • Wal-Mart sells a night light bear. It's white, and has a light that shines through its tummy. It cycles through all sorts of colors, isn't too bright, and shuts off automatically after about fifteen minutes or so. They're only about $20. My oldest daughter has one, and she loves that thing.

  • This isn't a stuffed animal but it's quite nice:

    The light has no exposed contacts, the child can even sleep with it.

  • They still make that glow worm. My two each have one. They sell them at Walmart and Target.

  • Glo-Worm, or let him have like my son has with him - a flashlight and a little Spiderman push-light.

  • when my dd did this we took the bulbs out of her room when she wasnt home and told her it was broke...she excepted the answer. as far as the night lite goes my parents have one that it motion activated it stays on for a little bit and then goes off...its not very bright either.

  • we have both the white teddy bear and the tyke lights they both work well and shut off automatically after 15 minutes. The tyke light can be left on all night if needed. My cousins son did this so she got a green colored bulb and a small lamp for his room , he outgrew if soon enough.
