Product Reviews: Bright Light Pillow / Flashlight Friends

Geek Alabama Product Reviews

Over the weekend, I received two products from Idea Village that are for families and kids.  You have seen the commercials on TV for the Bright Light Pillow and Flashlight Friends.

stuff 010stuff 026

These products are mostly for the bedroom and the bed.  The Bright Light Pillow has multi-color LED lights inside a soothing pillow.  Flashlight Friends come in six different plush animals and they all feature a LED flashlight built right in.  Here are the TV ads.

The Bright Light Pillow comes in either the Starlight Square or the Twinkling Star.  The pillow is all white or pink and is very soft to the touch.  The idea is to make the pillow soothing enough that kids will want to fall asleep on top of it.  I got the Twinkling Star and the instructions are very easy to follow.  Insert three AA batteries in a pack and push the on/off button.  When you first turn on the lights, it takes a minute to cycle through the colors.  But after 1-2 minutes.  You see the pillow in very pretty colors!  Here is a shot of the pillow in day and night.

The lights in the pillow are very bright at night and even during the day!  The lights automatically shut off after 15 minutes so your batteries will last.  The only thing I did not like about the pillow was the lights are only on one side.  As you see below, one side has lights while the other side does not have any lights.

The pillow can not be washed in a washing machine either.  So if you have kids who like to get dirty, this pillow will get dirty fast!  Only spot cleaning is allowed on the pillow to keep it working.  But overall, I was very impressed with this pillow, and I think kids, teens, and even adults will love it!

Flashlight Friends comes in six different plush animals which include the penguin, dragon, puppy, turtle, panda, and the unicorn.  The idea for Flashlight Friends is to give kids comfort and security at bedtime.  Kids can easily carry the plush animal because there is a loop on the back of the animal for easy carrying.  And don’t worry about wasting batteries, the LED flashlight will shut off automatically after 10 minutes.

I got the penguin and it is very soft to the touch.  The stuffed animal is very durable and it can handle a lot of abuse from small kids.  To activate the LED flashlight, push the light in the middle of the tummy two times.  The LED flashlight is very bright and for kids who are afraid of the dark, this product will give them comfort.  I know kids can get scared at night like during thunderstorms.  This product does a good job with the flashlight!  Here are photos showing the flashlight during the night.

Both Bright Light Pillow and Flashlight Friends are great products that kids will enjoy at bedtime.  It will make the bedtime experience much cooler for the kids.  And for the adults, you will get your kids to bed faster!  I know you will like that!  Both products are now available in national stores and I give both products a thumbs up!

Product Review: MicroTouch ONE Razor

Geek Alabama Product Reviews

Admit it guys, how much does it cost to purchase those multi-blade razors.  They are certainly not cheap.  For me, I buy the cheap disposable two-blade razors that only cost around $3 for a 12 pack.  I was contacted a while back to review a product from Idea Village that will save all men a lot of money on shaving equipment.  Here’s the commercial you see on TV featuring Rick Harrison from Pawn Stars.

The MicroTouch ONE Razor is the modern version of the timeless classic razor.  After years of price increases from multi-blade manufactures, MicroTouch, a consistent top three grooming brand in the country, brings you the most affordable and effective razor option that professional barbers still prefer today – the single blade shave.

A substantial and precision crafted tool, MicroTouch ONE is made of solid brass and chrome plated to a beautiful, polished shine.  The ONE feels fabulous in your hand and, most importantly, glides smoothly across your skin for the best shave of your life.  The ONE’s “butterfly” opening allows you to easily and safely clean the blade, rinsing it free of shaving cream and whiskers after each shave.  Your blades last longer, and that saves you money.

So I got my MicroTouch ONE Razor kit in the mail this week and it comes with the razor and 24 blades.  I really like the kit the razor comes in.  It comes with a small mirror so anyone can shave on the go.

Each blade is wrapped in a lot of paper.  I think that is a good thing because if kids got into this shaving kit, the chances for getting hurt would be less.  

stuff 011

All you do is place one Dorco Blade inside the razor blade chamber after you twist open the chamber.  After placing the blade inside, you close the chamber and you are all set!

Here is me before I shaved, yep, it was time for another shave.

And here is me after using the MicroTouch ONE Razor.  It normally takes me two cheap disposable two-blade razors to shave my entire face.  It only took one blade from this razor to shave my face!  And after rinsing, I can use the same blade again.  I also had no blood and cuts on my face after shaving with the MicroTouch ONE Razor.  And the shave was very comfortable and easy to my skin.  I recommend the MicroTouch ONE Razor to anyone who shaves, it gets a thumbs up!
