New Huggable Children’s Reading Light

Hug Light Reading Buddies

Huglight buddies make reading fun.

My Light® will present its latest product, HugLight® Buddies™, a line of plush animal LED reading lights for children, at Toy Fair 2015, February 14-17, at the Jacob K. Javits Convention Center, Booth #431.

“Our new product has two purposes: One, to provide children with a soft, cuddly companion toy they can carry with them for daytime and nighttime fun and two, to encourage independent reading. It is an excellent book light,” said Tom Christianson, President of My Light®. HugLight® Buddies™ is a completely new concept in reading lights. The soft, bendable arms of the plush animal wrap across the child’s shoulders in a “hug,” and can focus hands-free stereo light over the entire page of even the largest storybook with no hot spots. It combines the fun and security of a cozy companion plush toy with a high-quality LED light to read by.

HugLight® Buddies™ is being launched with six initial characters: Shadow the Panda, Barclay the Dog, Mochi the Monkey, Sasha the Cat, Benji the Bear, and Lexi the Koala. Retailers can order them individually, or in a “Jungle Pack” that includes all six.

Features of the product include white LED lights with high, medium, and low settings for reading, red LEDs to preserve night vision, an automatic shut-off to conserve battery life, an “activity band” that holds the flexible arms in place for secure hands-free play, and colorfast plush fabric that is easily removed for machine washing. The LEDs last over 10,000 hours and run on two AAA batteries.
