A soft light automatically switches on when the child removes the lantern from its charger. This helps kids be more independent during the night. My lantern can also be used as a bedside lamp with soft light or multicolor light, as well as a nightlight. The changeover from one color to another can be made automatically or manually. My Lantern is very easy to use, thank to its magic handle switch. There are also 4 different lullabies to help children fall asleep peacefully. My Lantern is available in pink or blue and has a very appealing design.
