Every since Raileigh was little, she has enjoyed having some sort of light in her room. We tend to stray away from traditional night lights and towards things that are more inviting and fun. Our current residence is surrounded by trees, which makes the inside of our home get particularly dark at night.
Recently, we added a fun bit of light to Raileigh’s room with Fireflies In My Room from Uncle Milton. Growing up, one of my favorite things to do was sit outside and catch fireflies with my Granny at dusk. I thought this would be a unique way to share this memory with my own daughter.
Fireflies In My Room is designed to hang from the ceiling and provide a personal, enchanting show of fireflies in a dark room. It comes partially assembled, but it is up to you to add a few of the leaves as well as all of the fireflies. No worries, though. This was incredibly easy to do and everything needed was included in the box.
The device does have to be mounted on the ceiling. The instructions call for you to make two small holes in the ceiling using a 7/16″ drill bit. Neither us nor either of our neighbor’s had one in this size, but we found that a 3/8″ bit worked just fine.
Once Fireflies In My Room is attached to the ceiling, the fun can officially begin! Using the small enclosed remote, simply push the button to turn it on. The remote makes it easy and convenient to turn on Fireflies In My Room, even if you’re in bed!
The fireflies glow in an ever-changing pattern, usually one or two fireflies at a time. It’s quite beautiful and fascinating! Yes, I am just as smitten with this as Raileigh. We can both lay in her bed and just watch as the fireflies take turns putting on a show for us.
After 30 minutes, there is an automatic shut-off. I love this because it preserves the batteries for future use.
We have thoroughly enjoyed having Fireflies In My Room in our home. It is such a unique way to cast a little light into Raileigh’s dark room at night.
I am excited to announce that Uncle Milton is going to send one lucky Wee Share reader their very own Fireflies In My Room!
