Anne’s Plush Night Light Proposal

This caterpillar night light is for children. I modeled it on the shape of a neck roll pillow. It is for when a child wakes up in the middle of the night. It is soft and big enough that it can double as a small pillow and does not take fine motor skills to turn it on. The light is meant to be soft enough to not disturb any other sleepers.

Here is the prototype:

Here is the circuit diagram:

The materials for the prototype included:

  • muslin for prototype (will swap for plush for final version)
  • poly-fill
  • 2 pipe cleaners
  • 8 LEDs
  • 8 150Ω resistors
  • switch
  • battery pack
  • 3 AAA batteries

Here are the early brainstorming sketches:
