Bedtime could become less of an uphill battle with your kids if you replace their regular nightlight with this colorful, spinning, animated lamp that brings a series of animals to life. Using a simple lenticular animation effect, the effect is almost hypnotic, and should put anyone to sleep in no time.

The $40 lamp comes with nine optional slides letting you choose any six animated animals at a given time—including penguins, panthers, and of course, the traditional galloping horse. It's just too bad it doesn't come with blanks and a guide on how kids could create their own custom animations. [ThinkGeek]
