Sleep Lantern – Night Light app for iPad

Fall asleep to our beautifully animated night light to calm your child before bed

‘Sleep Lantern’ turns your iPad into a calming animated night light. This app is Ad-free, so it is suitable for everyone.

Inspired by old fashioned paper lanterns, our dreamy atmospheric scenes are lovingly animated with soothing soundscapes that help relax you before bed. Choose a timer setting from 5 to 60 mins and the app will slowly fade out and gently shut off.

Research from parents told us that what they were really looking for was something ‘non stimulating’ to help their children wind down for the day. So we created Sleep Lantern.

Choose a scene, sit back and immerse yourself in our dreamy atmospheric worlds. The app comes with 2 free night lights: Desert Balloons and Xmas Snow Globe. The paid pack comes with 4 premium aninations: Boy blowing bubbles, Steam Train, Girl on a Swing and Ice Skating.


Night Light App Features:

  • Colours gently rotate in the background
  • Calming animations and sounds
  • Set a timer from 5 to 60 minutes
  • Change the brightness and volume
  • Gentle fade out when time limit is up

About the Artwork

This app is the beginning of a partnership between Frosby Apps and Alison Russell – a professional English silhouette artist.

Alison was taught the Victorian art of silhouette cutting by her grandmother at an early age. One of the few remaining people with this rare skill, Alison uses just scissors and paper to cut peoples’ portrait profiles at events – the result is like magic!

If you would like to see more of her work and commissions, please visit her website.

Setting up your timer

Using our built-in night light timer works in conjunction with your iPad settings.
