If you walked into my sons’ room at night you might be mistaken for thinking you’re under lights for a night match at the MCG. You see, they love glow-in-the-dark things. So much so, that there really isn’t much ‘dark’ left to glow in. They’ve got a moon that moves through the phases, hanging planets, more moons, stars, a few glowing swords, outer space toys, bits of Bionicle Lego and even some glowing pyjamas. So I figure, why not keep brightening up the room and let them have a Sun Jar by Tobias Wong.
Described as the jar that captures the power of celestial bodies, the Sun Jar uses a solar cell, rechargeable battery and LEDs to provide lighting that will go all night. Like bottled sunshine, the luminescent glow of the jar looks almost like a living thing. The jars are water-tight so you can leave them outside all day to power up. Alternatively, if you want to save the battery or just need some pitch-black time, there is an internal switch to turn them off.
Choose from orange ‘sun’ jars or blue or pink ‘moon’ jars. They are US$40 each and are available from Unica Home. Unica Home ship internationally with a freight forwarder associated with the company.
