I expected this to make a noise you could hear but even if you put the toy right up to your ear you can only just about hear a noise. It is also very small in size I don't expect it to last very long on christmas day.
The design is very modern and looks good in my newly decorated bedroom. However the stem of the light becomes very hot after a while when it is on, so as the stem is the most accessible when the light is on the bedside cabinet you can easily burn yourself. The lights were delivered quickly and packed well.
The light arrived quickly only minor problem that there was no bulb with it but this was soon sorted with one phone call and the bulb arrived within days. The light finish is very good and sylish better than a previous one purchase from another company. Excellant all round.
