This star projector is easy to use. It has simple push buttons for selecting either light or sound or the two combined. It has a timer than turns the unit off automatically so there’s no need to wake your child by returning to turn out the light or turn off the sound.
The light show alternates between pink, white, yellow, green, purple, red, and blue light.
There are nursery rhymes include Clementine, London Bridge is Falling Down, Hush Little Baby, and Brahm’s Lullaby. The selection of sound effects includes waves on the shore, running water, crickets & frogs, and a heartbeat. If you find one is more effective than the others you can select your favourite or simply allow the unit to transmit each in sequence. The rhymes are a little louder than the sound effects so the former could be used for play and the latter are more suitable for sending off to sleep.
The Star Cube’s compact design makes it an ideal addition to any child’s bedroom but teenagers and adults have also reported that they enjoy using it.
It’s designed to soothe and send you off to sleep and it does that well but the star projections are not the actual constellations. If you want an educational toy that shows a projection of the night sky then try the Science Kidz Star Galaxy Projector or another like that.
The cube requires batteries but it can be operated using a mains adapter (not supplied).
