Cute Humidifiers for Kids

It’s cold and flu season, which means everyone has a cough. Actually — knock wood — no one has a cough right this very minute, but for a while there we were all passing around a very unpleasant hack. It was a persistent little bugger. Went on for weeks.

It’s obviously no fun having a cough keep you up at night, but it’s even worse when it’s your kid. Having a humidifier on really seems to help our children — a lot. It’s the difference between up every couple of hours and getting a full night’s sleep. Our now-six-year-old model is past its prime, and it’s a drag having to shuttle it back and forth from Jasper‘s room to Magnolia‘s, depending on who’s sick, so….

Leave it to my wife to find a cute solution!

The kids were irrationally delighted by the arrival of hello kitty and the red dragon, our two new cool mist humidifiers from Crane. (hello kitty glows, acting as a night light, too.) Although we went with the kitty and dragon, the pig is pretty cute, too. (There are also other adorable animals, and a few cool, colorful, mod shapes if you’re adorable-animal-phobic.) Get one now for your kid’s room so you’ll be prepared the next time he develops a cough that sounds like a two-pack-a-day habit.

    While this isn’t specifically a “kid” themed humidifier, it certainly would be cute in any kid’s room, esp as it doubles as a night light. We have one, and it seems to work well, has no filters to buy/change, and is extremely quiet. The Humio.
