4.0 out of 5 stars A nice little nightlight, and a fun projector, but sadly it only takes batteries for powering it..., 23 Jun. 2014
This review is from: Philips Marvel Spider-Man Children's Night Light and Projector - 1 x 0.1 W Integrated LED (Kitchen & Home)
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
Length:: 2:48 Mins

The Philips Spiderman LED Night Light and Image Projector is a small bedroom light that provides both a subtle night light as well as a projector for projecting a range of Spiderman images onto your child's ceiling (or walls).

Once you have inserted 3x AA batteries (not included) into the lamp, it can then be switched on to the `lamp' setting whereby the lower half of the lamp illuminates around its entire circumference - giving of a mild `night light' level of light. You certainly won't be able to illuminate an entire bedroom with the lamp - however, it does offer a nice low-light to help kids to get to sleep with.

Flipping the switch in the other direction turns it from a lamp to the Spiderman Projector. Here, the lamp directs a beam of light upwards through the lens that's situated on the very top of the lamp. The lamp comes with three different projector wheels which each include eight different Spiderman images. Simply slide in one of these projector wheels, then when the projector function has been selected, it will project the image onto the ceiling above you. The wheels can then be turned manually, to scroll through the eight images on each wheel.

In a dark room the lamp is able to project a pretty well-defined Spiderman image on your child's ceiling. The size of the image depends very much on the distance that the ceiling is away from the lamp - but for an average distance (say 2 metres between lamp and ceiling) the image is around three-quarters of a metre wide.

The focus on the projector can also be changed simply by twisting the top section of the lamp either clockwise or anti-clockwise.

The lamp is 100% battery powered, with nowhere to insert a mains adapter or charge up the batteries inside. Furthermore, if your kid's anything like our son, then they're likely to leave the thing on when they go to sleep, wake up in the middle of the night and turn it back on again before drifting off back to sleep, and turn it on (and leave it on) during the day. As such, I strongly recommend using rechargeable batteries in the lamp - otherwise you'll end up spending a small fortune on normal alkaline batteries.

All in all, my son absolutely loves the lamp. It's a nice, quiet thing for him to tinker about with as he gradually drifts off to sleep, it makes for a nice little nightlight, and it's great for sleepover fun etc. The only downside with the lamp is that it can only take batteries to power it, and as such, you can't simply plug it into the mains for power or even recharge the batteries without having to remove them first.
