For years we’ve struggled with Haley being afraid of the dark. Illumibowl is the remedy to that. Every night we’d leave the bathroom light on for her. I have to be honest when I say nightlights scare me. With any plug in all I think about is fire. Keeping on the bathroom light isn’t a huge hassle. But, the light does shine right under our bedroom door. Sometimes it makes it hard to go to sleep. But, now we don’t have to leave the bathroom light on anymore!

Have you ever seen the television show Shark Tank?! If not, it’s at the top of my list for TV show recommendations. Shark Tank is a television show that airs in the United States and Australia. It features six investors (also known as “sharks”) worth billions. Individuals come on the show hoping that one, or multiple, sharks will invest in their idea. It may not be everyone’s cup of tea. But, I absolutely love the show!

Illumibowl is one of the products that was pitched on Shark Tank. Of course, like any great product, they made a deal. Kevin O’Leary offered them $100K for 25%. They accepted the deal. I mean, why not? Kevin O’Leary is “Mr. Wonderful” after all. But, what’s all the hype about?

Thanks to Illumibowl we no longer have to keep the bathroom light on all night!


This toilet night light has so many great key features. Its battery life is outstanding. The design is simple but does its job. Plus, it’s affordable.

Illumibowl Features

  • Motion Activated 
  • One size fits all! It fits any toilet
  • 8 different colors to chose from. You can even set it to rotate the colors!


This product doesn’t take up a lot of space either. You can barely notice that it’s there. But, it’s a fun little contraption to have. Great conversation starter, too. I think the Illumibowl will be a huge hit at our house during Halloween this year. Haley already has to tell me every time it changes colors and what color it is.

It’s easy to install, too. You just stick it to the outside of the toilet with the suction cups that are attached to it. The LED light has a suction cup, too. You just put that on the inner rim of the toilet. Really easy to remove and clean, too. Just take a rag to it.


Are your wheels turning now?! I know mine were when I was first introduced to this great idea. You’ll be happy to hear it’s affordable, too! I know that sounds crazy. How can such a cool gadget be super affordable? Don’t ask me. Ask the intelligent individuals who invented this product.

You can find the illumibowl for as little as $12.99 at many retailers. It’s available online as well as in many retail stores.
