Daylight – time to be awake; darkness – time to s l e e p. This is all very well and good at home but what about when you go away?
I have countless, now humourous, tales about fashioning DIY blackout blinds from almost anything I could lay my hands – towels, sheets, blankets, coats, even taping black bin liners up at the windows (hey it worked!).
HOW much easier it would have been if this genius Gro Anywhere Blackout Blind had been around back then!
All you have to do is remember to take it with you when you're staying away from home overnight then stick it up at the offending window, that's letting light STREAM in (how dare it!) with its suction cups and VIOLA! Instant darkness, instant night time, instant(ish) sleeping child; perfect!
Even though it’s an impressive 200cms x 135cms it will fit small windows too cleverly using, as one reviewer put it, ‘those elasticated waistband thingys you sometimes get on kids trousers’ to shrink it to fit; odd shaped windows will be no match for the Gro Anywhere Blackout Blind either.
This is the cheapest I could find it - it's £22.99 at base.com and full price in Toys R Us.
Happy staying away from the light!
