Honest Mom's review:


- perfect for diaper changes and breast-feeding in the middle of the night
- projects enough light to see around but not wake up the baby
- for a toddler who is scared of the dark, the "on" button is easy to find and push
- great toddler "morning toy", for they can bang the shell for about 7 minutes (long enough for you to brush your teeth)
- even for a grown up it has a calming effect
- pretty cute to look at. Also comes as a lady bug that looks quite creepy.


- great night light - yes, astronomy lesson - not so much.
- not all the colors are equally bright
- eats batteries pretty fast


- wish it didn't have a timer. I think some kids might get scared falling asleep with the starry night, just to wake up in the middle of the night to a pitch black room.
- since the product is not cheap, I wish they added some kind of calming sound to it.

Honest mom's review:


- out of all the sound soothing baby products, I liked this one the most.
- the product is small and portable. Great if you are traveling and would like to bring a "piece of home with you"
- attaches to the crib with Velcro tab which is great for those horrifying SIDS months
- "spring showers" sound is my favorite, since it's very unnoticeable and soothing
- batteries last forever


- not as cuddly as it looks like in the picture due to the plastic control sticking out in the back
- "whale songs" sounds like a soundtrack to a horror film


- more variety of animals instead of just one plain white sheep
- longer lasting timer, preferably 60 minutes
