In the months following the birth of our daughter, Grace, we (Katherine and Tom Homfray) founded CozyGlo, selling nightlights. Inspired by our own experience of nighttime feeding, comforting and nappy changing, we wanted a nightlight that quite literally had a cosy glow whilst also combining some other very useful features.
Over a year and a half after we started our venture, and having tackled the minefield of how to go about developing an electronic product, we finally have stock! Our nightlights have been designed with the needs of both parents and children in mind. They are useful from birth, during the months when you might have your little one in your own room, whilst also being an attractive feature of any child’s bedroom, used for storytime and sleep training.
We all know that nighttime can be scary for young children, so a CozyGlo light has been designed as a cute, smiley bedside buddy that aims to give comfort and security to help children drift off to sleep. Our CozyGlo lights also have a dimmer, an in-built clock, stopwatch, thermometer and sleep trainer. We have combined all these features together and believe that the end product is extremely attractive and useful!
And now, just after the birth of our baby boy, Robbie (October 2015), we are able to use the very night light that we wished we’d had when Grace was born. We hope you and your children will find our nightlights as irresistible and as invaluable as our family do. We have intended to make nighttimes just that little bit easier.
