Ships in the night

Flock of the new

What's glowing on here?
Not strictly a light but functioning perfectly well as a night light, the Grobag Egg Room thermometer can ease the minds of anxious parents worrying if their baby is too hot or too cold. The thermometer changes colour according to room temperature, glowing yellow at an ambient heat and alerting parents to any changes by turning red when it's too hot or blue when it's too cold.
