Illumibowl Review & GIVEAWAY

You know us and how much we love trying new products, especially when it’s childrenswear (our last Baba Fashionista with a fab giveaway is here by the way!) or something related to food! But for once, we will surprise you. Indeed, today we are reviewing a special gadget: the Illumibowl. It’s THE item to have in the bathroom from the US. You will discover soon why! Enjoy our new Illumibowl Review and don’t forget to enter our GIVEAWAY at the end! We have teamed up with this excellent brand and we have 3 of these wonders to give away to our super lucky lecteurs!

What is Illumibowl?

I know what must think while reading those lines. But what is Illumibowl? Well chers lecteurs, this is THE gadget your want in your bathroom, just because!

IllumiBowl is the world’s first Toilet Bowl Night Light. The concept si simple, yet genius! It’s light-sensitive so it will only turn on in the dark and motion-activated so it will only light up when you walk into the bathroom at night. Another great feature is that you can have it scrolling through various colours or set it up on one couleur only. Imagine having a rainbow in your toilet! Parfait when your little one is doing colourful poops!

A new gadget to try! Yeah!!!

When the lights are off and it senses movement, it lights up.  So it’s not on when there is already light so that it saves the batteries. I told you that it was génial!

Simple instructions! Anyone can do it!

Un autre plus? IllumiBowl adjusts to fit on any toilet, meaning you never have to worry about it ever falling off! Finding the idea a bit eccentric? Peut-être at first, but once you tried it, you will not want to live without it!

How to set it up?

Not only it’s a wacky gadget that you want in your bathroom (all your friends will be well jealous!), but it’s also simple to instal and use. So facile indeed that even Frenchie Mummy managed to set it up without Grumpy Boyfriend.

She managed to put it all together! Hurrah! Apologies for the toes… So you like my nail colour? 🙂
  1. Put 3 AAA batteries (they are not included with the IllumiBowl)
  2. Lift your toilet and place it on the outside of it. Bend slightly its arm over the rim
  3. Make sure that your Illumibowl is facing the entrance of your bathroom as it works with a sensor

Et voilà! You are ready to enter a new age! The one where you are a geek dans les toilettes!

All set up, ready to go!

You think it’s a bit crazy? Think twice! If you are like me and hate having the full light on in the night, this is the perfect compromise. If I have to get up, I don’t want to wake up my entire family by swearing when I bump into something!

Illumibowl Review – A friendly family gadget

We have been using Illumibowl for a couple of weeks in the Frenchie house and we are all in love with it! I personally like it so that it stays on the pink colour but I reckon that Grumpy Boyfriend secretly likes when the colours rotates 🙂

Loving it when I do a wee in blue!

I wish I had it when I was pregnant as I would have avoided waking up my partner at night every time I needed a wee! I must admit that I also like the idea to go to a disco when I go to the bathroom.

Grumpy Boyfriend can’t make a mess in the dark.

The truth? Grumpy Boyfriend’s favourite colour was the pink one…

And Baba? Well, he has been very intrigued by it so far. Bien sûr, he is too young to use the toilet but I reckon that Illumibowl will be one of my most important allies when we are potty training him. Imagine how fun it will be for him!

It seems like such a great idea! Kids will love it and find it so amusing! They won’t be waking you up anymore at night if they need the loo!

That why I think that Illumibowl a THE family friendly gadget and not only a trendy little white box.

IllumiBowl – A gadget that travels!

I actually love it so much that I took it with us while we were away this weekend! Pourquoi? Here again, it happened to be really handy when I wanted to use a bathroom that I was not used to in the dark!

And as it’s so easy to clean it (to take it away), why go without it everywhere with you? To clean off your IllumiBowl, simply wipe it off with wet wipes, a damp cloth, or whatever you already use to clean your outer bowl. Pee Frenchie everywhere you are going!

I have tried our Illumibowl in three different toilets and it fitted parfaitement in each one! So everyone should have one in their salle de bains!

Do you want one now? Go and check it here. And don’t miss the Potty Humour section! It’s worth a read!

Illumibowl Review & GIVEAWAY

Do you feel like you are missing something in your life now that you read our Illumibowl Review? Do you want to help your children to be more independent when it’s about going to the loo?
