Night lights are the secret superheroes of kid’s bedrooms. They have the ability to calm, chase away monsters and allow parents to sneak into the room without bashing a knee, inadvertently wake a sleeping babe. So whether you are in the market for nursery lamps, nursery lights or even a projector, here are the best night lights for kids—from baby to teen—and where to find them.
