    Hello everyone,
    My wife just ordered for a "Gold Armour Toilet Night Light" for my child.
    My neighbor told me its not that cool as it seems on web.
    Actually my mother in law told her about it as my 3 years old daughter fears of darkness.
    I am looking for anyone who has ever used any toilet bowl light or anything like it.
    It will cost me almost 12$ - 15$.Is it worth to the money?
    please let me know.Looking forward to hear from you.
    Thanks in advance.
    Regards

    We bought one. Even though it was LED and stayed on only when it sensed someone in the room, the batteries didn't last very long. I even put it on the wall side of the bowl to limit the amount of times it would turn on, still didn't last long. We finally got rid of it. We just have a plug in wall night light now. Just enough light to avoid running into stuff in the middle of the night.

    Hey, I'm 65. I don't miss the bowl, but I do occasionally randomly bump into objects.

    Get a plug-in night light for a few dollars. Some of them have motion sensors.

    We had them for a couple months. Really never needed them before and don't miss them now. Gimmick item but it may work for your child.

    Because of new technologies world is changing too fast. Let’s try with toilet bowl light. When we were kids, we hadn't this. Let’s do for our kids.

    At my advanced age, I just sit down. That way I don't have to fully wake up, I don't need any light at all, and there's never the issue of forgetting to put the seat back down.

    I've been using this that I picked up at Costco a couple of years back for dirt cheap. The hinged
    light allows it to bend and hang over something like a towel bar. The sensor is hinged, too.
    Works great and has 15 second or 45 second....always on/off settings. 3 AA NiMH batteries last a
    month.
