Nifty Toy Any Child Will Enjoy
In the wee hours of the morning, a commercial ran across my tv screen. It was for these stuffed plush animals that have a flashlight built inside their tummy. The next morning before my son left for school, the commercial came on again. Immediately these things caught his attention, so of course I had to take a better look at them, and soon, decided to purchase one for him to try for himself.
After all, according to the commercial, if I want to keep my kid safe at night (in the dark) I should get him one right? I like him to be safe!
And what kid wouldn’t want one since they love both flashlights and soft plush animals? My kid would!
What Are Flashlight Friends?
So what are flashlight friends? Well in a nutshell, flashlight friends is a plush animal with a built in flashlight right in its upper tummy area.
These stuffed animals have a little flashlight inside of them that lasts for hundreds of hours. All it takes is a gentle tap to turn on the light and a gentle tap to turn it off. It has an automatic shut off feature that turns it off after 20 minutes. Although it is built within the stuffed animal, it never gets hot to the touch.

Where To Buy Flashlight Friends
Wondering where you can buy flashlight friends? Well so far, I have only found these plush animal flashlights are only available for sale online.
As with most as seen on tv products, they will probably eventually end up being sold in local retail stores, but as of today I haven’t found them anywhere in my town.
Two of the places that I have seen them for sale are:
the Flashlight Friends website
What Do Flashlight Friends Cost
The cost of a Flashlight Friend is pretty much the same whether you buy one from the Flashlight Friends website or from Amazon.
Each one (with shipping and handling) totals about $27.00 and some change.
Not bad really.
The main difference between purchasing them on either site is the shipping time.
Purchase from the website:
Order may not be shipped until 30 days after your order 🙁
Order ships and arrives in about a week!
For your convenience, I included a link to both for you below.
