My kids LOVE this night light. I seriously underestimated how much they would enjoy it. They want it on all day and night.
It’s very easy to operate. There are 3 buttons. The first turns the white lights on and off. The second cycles through different color combinations (red, green, blue), with the last one displaying a light show of the different colors. If you press the button once more after this, it turns the color lights off. You can turn on the white lights and the color lights together or separately. The third button makes the globe spin.
The different colored bulbs are spread a little, so they shine through the stars and moon from different angles. The result of this is multiple moons when you have multiple colors on. To turn the light off, you have to use the first 2 buttons. There is no auto-shutoff or timer.
There is a frosted cover that can be used to make it a night light or star lamp. Without the cover, it projects the stars and moon on the walls and ceiling.
The details of the stars and moon are more fuzzy on the ceiling (versus the wall right near it) when the light is on a nightstand, but I think that is to be expected.
It comes with a cord to plug it into the wall, plus there is a battery compartment that takes 4 AAA batteries (not included). There is a spot for a screw on the lid to the battery compartment, but there is no screw. I found that odd, but I doubt I will ever use it with batteries anyway. The screw isn’t necessary to keep it closed, it’s just a safety feature for kids.
The projector dome is a thin material that can be bent or dented, so it would be best to keep it out of reach of young children. It’s not going to be durable against abuse. The frosted dome is also a bit fragile, though to a lesser degree.
I find the issues to be minor and I would still wholeheartedly recommend it. My kids absolutely love it, and I think it’s pretty cool, too. Check it out on Amazon here.
