Philips Teams Up With Disney To Revolutionize Children Lighting Category

Royal Philips (PHG) announced the creation of a portfolio of inspiring and playful lighting products designed to bring the Disney magic to life for kids and families through lighting.

Combining Philips' expertise in lighting with Disney's beloved characters will harness the power of light to make children's bedrooms a more imaginative place for them to read, play and sleep, Philips said.

The company said that the products will be co-branded and sold through a variety of complementary Philips and Disney retail channels starting in Europe and the US from September, with Asia and Canada to follow later this year.

The company said that the Philips Disney portfolio range includes breakthrough concepts in connected lighting that allows children to interact with Disney stories and characters. The lighting concept allows children and parents to connect e-books with their lighting to interactively create a magical lighting experience that makes reading more fun and allows families to become fully immersed in the story. The range also includes lights featuring 'light that comforts', such as nightlights that emit a gentle glow, to products designed to help promote a regular sleep pattern for children by letting them know when it's time to get up.
