A kid's table lamp must be safe, so make sure you never use glass bulbs. Shatter-resistant plastic bulbs must be used at all times.
And you should also avoid using energy-saving light bulbs too, as these contain mercury.
When it comes to lighting, we recommend using LED bulbs, which are not only durable and switchable, but they save you up to 90% on electricity compared to incandescent bulbs (handy when you discover your child has left a lamp on during broad daylight!).
With LED bulbs, you should make sure they provide a warm, cosy white light with a colour temperature of less than 3,300 Kelvin. Lamps with a brightness of 400 lumens or more are common in children’s table lamps.
However, if they’re for decorative purposes only, and not used for work or reading, lamps with a lower lumen grading can also be used.
