Ever wish you could bottle moonlight to light up your room at night? Well, now you can with the Moon Jar.  We’ve written about the Sun Jar on Inhabitat before  – the cute and clever solar powered jar lamp which has been around for a couple of years garnering fans and design accolades. If you liked the concept but found the Sun Jar too yellow and sunny for your tastes, now there is a cool blue-hued version of the same design called the ‘Moon Jar’. 
We think these would make ideal nightlights for a kid’s room, and have a review over on Inhabitots  explaining our thoughts:
Designed by Tobias Wong, the Moon Jar employs the same parts and functionality as the Sun Jar : you stash it on a windowsill to collect the sun’s rays during the day, which are then converted into energy to light up your room at night. Whereas the Sun Jar  uses a warm amber colored LED, the MoonJar uses a blue LED for a cooler moonlight effect.
I just ordered one of these for my baby’s room and I’m excited to check it out!
