Light Your Way with Step 'N Shine - Giveaway

My grandma has had several falls in her bathroom due to her age and frail health. Making her way through the dark in the middle of the night is not easy for her.

That's why I was so happy to find out about Step 'n Shine, an ingenious product that will help her easily get the light she needs to get safely to the bathroom.

Thanks to Southard Communications, we were able to test the Step 'n Shine Solid Night Light System seen here at Walmart:



The package came with one, wireless, activator mat in a solid beige color, one light with adhesive backing as well as a hook to hang the light. (Click here to see Step 'n Shine's online site, which provides more lights in their package, or you can order extra lights through Walmart.)

The benefit of Step 'n Shine is that it only lights up when you need it. Simply step on the mat to activate it and it sends a wireless signal to the other light (the mat lights up as well). You can choose where you'd like the other light to be....a bathroom, nusery, hallway, stairs, etc.

Here are some of the benefits of the Step 'n Shine:
  • Completely wireless
  • Operates up to a 100 ft. range
  • Wireless remote illuminator light is perfect to use on the newborn's changing table
  • Just step and a gentle light automatically illuminates the room without disturbing anyone
  • Comes in an attractive, solid beige color
  • Requires six "AA" batteries (not included)

There are also colorfully printed mats for toddlers and older children, or for moms to use in a nusery.

Click here, to see the youth mats at Step 'n Shine's website, or here to see the nursery mat at WalMart:



After trying it out for ourselves, we felt good giving the system to my grandma for Christmas and she really loved the concept herself when she saw it. I'll rest easier knowing that she's a little safer at night now thanks to Step 'n Shine.

There is also a Snuggle 'n Shine Bear for kids that works similarly to the Step 'n Shine mat system:



Your child sleeps with the cuddly bear and when he/she needs to get up to use the bathroom (or for any other reason), he/she simply gives the bear a squeeze and the bear lights up.

Just as with the mat system, there is another light (in the shape of a little bear) placed wherever you choose that also lights up, giving your child a safe, lighted path to their destination:



Again, thanks to Southard Communications, my daughter was able to review this adorable product. She not only likes to be able to see where she's going, but she feels much more secure having both the light to guide her and the bear to hold when she needs to use the bathroom.

Wow! This would be perfect for Liz and Tritan to use when they get up to go to the bathroom in the middle of the night. Right now they turn on the light in every room they pass through to get to the bathroom. Then they don't want to turn them off because they don't want to be in the dark.
