This is a projector and soothing light that displays stars but not in any constellation pattern so the manufacturer’s title is a bit misleading that respect. If you want a more educational and accurate night light of this type then try the National Geographic Astro Planetarium Projector or another from the same category.
There are four colour settings, warm white, orange, green, and blue. It runs on three AA batteries which will produce over sixty hours of illumination based on about forty-five minutes of use each evening. It has an auto shut-off feature so you won’t have to return to the bedroom to turn it off. You’ll need a small Phillips screwdriver to open the battery section.
As the name suggests it’s touch activated and easy to clean so it’s perfect for nursery age children and babies. For the best displays shine it at a distance of about 1.5 metres or less. More than this and the display deteriorates a little so the claim that it can display well at twice that distance isn’t borne out by the reviewers.
However, despite all this and the fact that the unit doesn’t rotate nor contain any music it was received five star reviews and has been well received by small children who want a comforting night light of stars.
Kids love to see the stars on their bedroom walls and ceilings. Yours will be able to choose their favourite colour display from the four available and you won’t have to worry about any power cables. Nor will you have to wake them just after they’ve dropped off to sleep by returning to the bedroom to turn it off.
Despite its limits this is a handy and well designed unit for nurseries. If you use rechargeable batteries then it will be an inexpensive investment that will last from one childhood to another.
