The Philips Disney Imaginative lighting range has been created to inspire children’s play and magical family moments as well as provide comfort to kids through Disney characters they know and love. The range also includes lights featuring ‘light that comforts’, such as nightlights that emit a gentle glow, to products designed to help promote a regular sleep pattern for children by letting them know when it’s time to get up. The portfolio is designed for kids of ages 3 – 7 years and it has been designed with safety in mind through each product’s construction and the materials used. Smart Philips LED means the lamps are robust, stay cool to the touch and are kind to little hands – with the added bonus that they do not have to be changed often due to their extremely long-life. Each light is also designed to ensure there are no small parts or sharp edges to worry about, and cables can be tidied away using Velcro cable binders.
