Do you still get entertainers creating animals out of balloons? If not, you can always opt for this Balloon Dog Light at Firebox, which has the look and is a definitely more permanent.
It’s a great look for a kid’s room, a glowing red light emanating from that distinctive balloon-like canine. The body is described as having a ‘flexible silicone rubber texture’, feeling just like a balloon, but a lot less likely to pop fro a heavy squeeze.
It also has a built-in timer, should you want to use it as an aid to drifting off at night and is battery powered, so no clutter from wires.
You’ll need 2x AA batteries and £14.99 to buy one.
