Have a Potty Party with Illumibowl

Have a Potty Party with Illumibowl!


I know what you’re thinking. Potty Party? Gross! Well, get your mind out of the gutter! Today I will be reviewing this little gadget that you probably never knew you wanted. I’m talking about this awesome toilet night light called Illumibowl.

I have discovered that this device has been featured on such websites like theCHIVE and BuzzFeed and when the lovely people at Illumibowl asked me to try one complimentary in exchange for my honest review, I was excited to see what all the fuss is about. Well now I am asking myself just where has this ingenious product has been all my life!? I’m going to show you why you probably not only want this item, but why you may actually need it!

What is Illumibowl?

Basically it’s a motion activated, color-changing night light for your toilet. It has a sensor that attaches to the outside of the toilet bowl with suction cups and a small color changing light that goes just under the rim which also attaches with suction cups. You just insert 3 AAA batteries, wet the suction cups and stick the sensor on the outside of the toilet. Then you just attach the little light on the adjustable arm to fit inside just under the rim. I suggest you wet the toilet surface under where you want to place the suction cups as I find that helps it stick better. I have made a little video to show you how it works.

Why do you WANT Illumibowl?

Because it makes going to the bathroom so much fun! The toilet light features colors that rotate through every shade of the rainbow. But you can also press a little button to make the colors stop on whichever single color you like. As an added bonus, you can even try to “mix” the colors when you go to the bathroom. My son likes to leave it on blue so he can make the water green. I won’t go into details – let’s just leave it at that.

Why do you NEED Illumibowl?

Everyone hates waking up in the middle of the night to use the bathroom. It’s even worse when you have to turn on the overhead light to be met with a blinding bright burst of light. It is not very conducive for going back to sleep. Or even worse, you don’t turn on the light and you foggily stumble around in the dark trying to find the bathroom and accidentally walk into the wall, or fall into the toilet when your husband leaves the seat up. While my husband thinks it’s hilarious, I certainly don’t. But now you can have the last laugh. Since this is motion activated, it will go on automatically to help guide your way to the beautiful rainbow toilet glowing in the dark. It helps the men in your life with aim, especially if you have a careless husband (like mine) who tends to miss all the time.

It’s also perfect for potty training! Your little one will love going the bathroom with this cheerful little light. The first time we got it my kid said “I can’t wait to poop on the light!” Fun, right? But to clarify, you don’t actually poop on the light. It sits in a fairly unobtrusive spot just under the rim. Although it is splash proof and easy to clean with water or wipes should it be necessary. My son loves going in and out of the bathroom just to make the light turn on. The light shuts off automatically within 2 minutes so you can also find your way back. You will want one for every bathroom in the house. I know I do…hint, hint. Illumibowl also makes a perfect gift!

Why not throw your own Potty Party? All you need is Illumibowl and some tunes!

You can find this product at Illumibowl for around $20

  1. I love this, its funny but useful! I am always up in the middle of the night to go the toilet so this would be brilliant, plus we are toilet training our son at the moment so it would make it more fun for him!

    • Right?! I bet your son would love it. It may encourage him to go.

  2. Thats pretty cool! Maybe it would help my husband and boys not pee all over the place in the middle of the night! Ha!

    • You would think so. Although my 5 year old son still has trouble with aim. Hubby does too – but on purpose I think.

  3. This looks cool. Unfortunately my cats would think so too and be up playing in the water all night,

    • Haha that would make for some funny videos!

  4. This is pretty cool! It would most def be for me since my bladder is the size of an ant and I seem to be the only one going during the night…LOL! #ProductReviewParty

    Oh that’s cool. This would be fun to have in a kids bathroom. #productreviewparty

  6. At first I thought this would be gross, but this is quite smart! My daughters would love to have this in their bathroom, especially my youngest who is scared of the dark. #ProductReviewParty

    • That is something I haven’t thought of. It would be great for kids who are afraid of the dark. Good idea!

  7. This is so cool and make it fun to use toilet.I guess my toddler would love something like this for his potty training

  8. I never heard of Illumibowl. It looks so cool.

  9. I still think this is hilarious. I could see surprising my husband on his 3 am potty run with a disco party… ha ha ha…. But on a serious note, I think this could be great for potty training 🙂

    • That would be hysterical. I bet he would love it too!

  10. Oh wow.. this is so neat. My crew would love it!
