I wanted a light that would help my 8 year old son fall asleep without needing to keep the main light on, I don't like plug in lights after one half melted and scared me.
This light is portable and very lightweight measuring 11x11x12CM . Its a very basic light plastic construction and takes 3 AA batteries to work. It has two buttons giving you three possible lighting modes. Mode one is a static star display which shines thousands of little stars and even some planets on the ceiling and walls. Mode Two is a colour changing LED option that gently and subtly changes the colour of the stars, none of that flashing or jolting malarkey. Finally mode three is purely the two options turned on giving you the warm static stars and the additional colour changing stars. Other than the changing colour the display is static which we found restful. Around the edge of the light is a ring marking months of the year, if you manually slide it slowly you can see the stars changing formation.
I think this is an absolute steal. Its fun and interesting for children and adults. I like the fact that it has to be fairly dark before you see the stars, so it creates an excitement for my son at the thought of bedtime rather than being something he hates. Twin this light with some calm music or a Story cd its guaranteed to have the whole house zzzz'ing.
