I wanted to buy my daughter a light projector for her first christmas where she was about 10 weeks old, as she loved looking at the lights, reflections and shadows on the ceiling and I thought she would really like this. There are so many different ones available and I looked around for sometime before buying the Chicco Goodnight stars light projector from Amazon for £25. We have this in pink but it does also come in blue and is suitable from newborn.
The light projector itself is almost ball shaped with two buttons on the front, one a musical note which activates the melodies and a moon button to activate the lights. When the light button is pressed the projector itself lights up so could also be used as a night light, although at the end of the music and light cycle it will switch off again.
The light button activates stars of varying sizes to be projected onto the ceiling, which change colours in sequence. The sound activates various soothing melodies including classical and nature sounds. After around 15 minutes the light and sounds end and hopefully little one is asleep. The music and lights are very relaxing and has been known to send both Mummies and Daddies to sleep too!
The buttons are quite large and now my daugther is older (7 months) she can easily activate them herself as we have this at the bottom on her cot and if she is still awake,she will pull herself towards it to make it play again!
She really loves this and I can see us getting lots of use from this for sometime to come. It is very durable and well made and we are still using the original set of batteries so these certainly last well too!
It does have a doll which is attached to the light by velcro however for me this is the one downside, the doll itself is quite cute however is made from the type of fabric which seems to collect fluff and is constantly being washed we have now given up and simply discarded this whislt a shame it has not detracted from our enjoyment.
I highly recommend this it is very soothing and relaxing, both for babies and parents alike, its is very well made and durable and well worth buying.
