Decorative Night Lights for Kids Who are Scared of the Dark

Posted by Kyle Design on September 17, 2014

Is your son or daughter scared of the dark?

Many small children are afraid of the dark and the best way to alleviate their night time fears is with a night light. Adding a soft, glowing light to a kid’s bedroom offers your son or daughter reassurance during the night.

At Kyle Design, we have a variety of designs that are popular for children’s rooms including the carousel night light for girls, rocket night light for boys, butterfly night light, star night light, celestial night light, fairy night light, baseball night light and more.

Click customize my nightlight to select from hundreds of Kyle’s unique designs.

Kyle’s nightlights are handcrafted so each one is created specifically for your son’s or daughter’s room. You get to select the stained glass color, the metal finish of the decorative design (shown: brass carousel and silver rocket), and the base type.

Automatic night lights are best for kids’ rooms as they turn on when it gets dark but also turn off in the early morning hours when they’re no longer needed.

Tarantulas Invade CA, Celebrate with Spider Festival April 25th

Tarantulas are on the march, heading towards Concord, CA, and the (San Francisco) Bay Area Tarantula Society’s Spring Sling Fling. This spider festival is being held today from 11:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m. at the Concord Veterans Memorial Hall at 2290 Willow Pass Rd., Concord, CA, 94520. Admission is free – all you need is courage to overcome your fears of these creepy crawlies.

Are your fears justified? You’ll see these tarantula collectors (apparently they becomes quite addictive) allow these large invertebrates to climb all over them with hardly a care. Are these people crazy? Do they have a death wish? No and No. Members just want to spread awareness of these creatures, and no humans (on record) have ever been killed by a tarantula.

Afraid of the dark? This stained glass Spider Night Light will help calm arachnophiles fears.

However – tarantulas are not just cuddly balls of fur on the move. They really can sting if inclined using the fangs in their front legs. Plus their hair is barbed and contains a very toxic irritant. Sounds fun! Best to pick a tarantula with a laid-back disposition if you are going to start collecting them.

In our house when we hear “DAD!!!! There’s a spider!“, it’s on the ceiling. When we hear “MOM!!!! There’s a spider!”, it’s on the wall or the floor. (Lucky me.) In both situations, the inflection in our daughters’ cries would imply that the spiders are as large as tarantulas. Maybe some education about arachnids in general would be a good thing. This festival would be a good place to teach your your kids about spiders so they are brave enough to deal with them by themselves. Maybe a spider night light would help inure them to their innate fear of these fun invert pets!

How long do tarantulas live? Females can live up to 20 years, so make sure you aren’t the type who has commitment issues.

Spiders are found all over the world, just like the World Wide Web, and are serious business to arachnophiles. Here is the perfect business card holder for them.

Festival events will include demonstrations, sexing instructions and mating exhibitions where these arachnophiles intend to prevent the females from eating the males post coitus.

Kyle Design’s Grateful Dead Dancing Bear Night Light is Back!

Posted by Kyle Design on August 28, 2008

Dead Heads Rejoice! The Dancing Bear Night Light is Back in Town

Dead Heads Rejoice! The Dancing Bear Night Light is Back in Town

Back In Town: We created this Dancing Bear Night Light for the Grateful Dead a few years back, and they are once again carrying it in their online store and catalog. So for all you Grateful Dead fans who’ve been asking me where they can get one, here it is: Grateful Dead Dancing Bear Night Light. It features a nickel silver frame over light blue stained glass and has a 4 watt bulb.

As soon as I shipped these night lights out to Grateful Dead Productions, my eldest daughter, who is 12, came home with new Dancing Bear Converse Shoes. She was so excited to show me them and I can see why. They feature about 5 colors of the dancing bears in a random pattern all over the outside (and inside) of the shoes. Very fun, colorful design! Nothin’ too serious going on here….

Design Your Own: Converse now offers the ability for you to create your own sneakers. This is the type of custom service we here at Kyle Design have been offering for over 25 years (!), where we allow you to create your own gifts using the design, colors, metal finish and product of your choice. You might say it is almost infinitely possible to create an artful gift that is unique. (The current rough math: 300 designs x 45 colors x 2 metals x 100 products = 2,700,000. Do you need more choices than that? Well, if so, there is always our custom design services….)

Custom Work: I have created custom pieces such as the night light above where I take a company logo, in this case the happy dancing bear itself, then incorporate that image into a scene or design based on the product shape. I have designed custom bookmarks and business card holders for Yosemite National Park based on a door hinge pattern, developed a line of vitamin cases and money clips for the Top of the Rock Observation Deck Gift Shop at the Rockefeller Center based on their logo, created a custom letter opener for Trinitas Hospital, among other projects. Please visit the Kyle Design Custom Work Gifts page to see more examples.

But if you don’t want to go through all that trouble and just prefer to pick from the nearly 3 million possibilities that we currently offer, then please visit Kyle Design: Cool Custom Gifts for Over 25 Years. Why, we can even ship your custom gift today if you need it shipped that fast. We normally do send orders with 1-2 days, even with custom engraving. Check us out if you want something different
