A few weeks ago we were sent a Chuppi by MATHMOS for Burton to trial. Described as being a "perfect nightlight for any design conscious home", the Chuppi is a fab ergonomic shaped product that has been created to automatically fade after half an hour which is hopefully how long it takes the average child to drop off to sleep!
Burton excitedly opened the box when it arrived and enthusiastically went "wow" when removed it from its box to show him. Bless him as he didn't really understand what it was at this point! However, once I showed him the stickers! Well then he was practically jumping up and down!
You see the great and fun thing about the Chuppi is that it comes with a couple of packs of stickers featuring eyes, mouths etc.. which allows for up to 18 different characters to be created by your little one.
Well as you an imagine, Burton was desperate to start sticking but first Mummy had to charge the Chuppi! Included with the nightlight is a re-charge stand which you plug in, and it takes a couple of hours to charge it up
Once charged the Chuppi can be set to show just one single colour or to reveal its spectrum of colours.
If your child does take longer than 30 minutes to drop off to sleep, then the Chuppi can stay alight for up to 6 hours. Burton really enjoyed taking his to bed with him and watching his own little light show under his duvet.
This night light in itself is suitable from birth onwards, as it doesnt get hot or even warm to the touch and is soothing to look at when preparing to go to sleep. However, if you are going to use the stickers then the Chuppi must only be given to a child aged 3 or above due to the size of the stickers. I would also add here that the stickers can be removed very easily, obviously, and did actually fall off in bed, so a smaller child could quite easily put a sticker in its mouth!!
Of course although the Chuppi does make an ideal bedtime companion for toddlers and young children, it could also make an ideal gift for an older person too as its is quite quirky and very contemporary illuminated art toy. Another interesting fact about this product is that British based designers, TADO from Sheffield, worked on its design with MATHMOS.
Priced at £30 the Chuppi is a lot of fun and has been keeping Burton company at bedtime and he has enjoyed making funny faces on it with his stickers. It does look very cute! We have enjoyed our time with it.
It is available to buy online from the MATHMOS website
