One of the most popular features of any video game is the lightshades. They add a level of realism and fun that simply cannot be duplicated through other means. When shopping for lightshades for kids, you should look for those that have been specifically designed for children's viewing needs, to ensure that they are suited to their delicate eyes and that they do not end up causing eye fatigue.
You may already have bought a light shade for your PlayStation 2, so you will probably already know what type and colour to look out for. If not, here is a quick guide. The first thing to look at is whether or not the lightshade fits in with the game's theme. This really comes down to ensuring that it matches the colours used in the game, or at least looks like it does.
If you are choosing a light shade for a cartoon character, you may want to steer away from those that are brightly coloured or have too many patterns. These may be eye-catching to a child, but they will also distract from the child playing the game. Instead, stick to light colours and simple designs. There are some particularly cute novelty shaded ones available. Some children may even like to decorate their room with them. Make sure though that the designs on the light are washable so that they can easily be changed when necessary.
You will also need to consider how easy it is to clean a lightshade. Some are made of plastic, which requires a lot more effort in order to clean than aluminium or metal one. However, plastic is a cheaper option, and you may be able to find a good quality light shade in this material at a reasonable price. You may also be able to have these replaced if they start to get old. However, metal and aluminium are more likely to be able to withstand constant use, and will be much cheaper in the long run. Plastic will degrade after repeated use, but it is possible to get a replacement for less than the original cost.
Once you have considered all of these aspects, you will still have many more to take into account before purchasing a light shade for your child. The most important is probably the impact the lightshade will have on your child's health. In general, it is important for your child's eyes to have as little distraction from other things as possible. This is especially important when they are reading or studying. They need to be able to concentrate. So, if you are looking at a light shade that will not obstruct their vision, then you will be better off buying a simpler one.
Finally, it is also important for you to make sure that the lightshade fits securely on your window. It should be snug but not too tight, so that the child is able to see outside. Also, the fit of the lightshade is very important, because you do not want it falling off as your child plays in the garden. If you purchase a cheap, faulty light shade, this could happen on an everyday basis.
