Night Owl

I am happy to present to you  my plush LED nightlight “Night Owl.” I set out to make something that might normally be scary or spooky – glowing eyes of animals in the night – and make it less frightening by putting the spooky creature on your side as your protective watcher.

Night owl’s softly glowing eyes keep a friendly, protective watch over you during the night. Night owl is a comforting bedtime companion for anyone that gets spooked in the night. From small children scared of monsters under the bed to lonely adults. Anyone that needs a little comfort in the night can have Night owl as a reassuring presence close by. Night owl is also great to snuggle with and carry around the house as your friend.

During my first attempt at making the circuit I encountered issues with the LED’S getting progressively more dull throughout the circuit. I realized I had connected the resistors at the wrong point in relation to the main power wire. So i tried again…
