Disadvantages: does not attach to the cot
Now I would personally say that every child should have a night light when they are young to help them settle when they go to bed. My son had one when he was little that I loved but when it came to having my daughter I had broken it and had to invest in a new one. I had asked my mother in law to see if she could get the same one that I had had for him but unfortunatley she couldn't get one.
So for christmas 3 years ago she came back with this one and it is wonderful although it is very big and can not be attached to the cot so you will have to have a table to put it on or it will have to be placed on the floor.
This cost £15 at the time from boots and was the new light that was out at the time. I have noticed that it has gone up in price since we had it so it must mean that it is a good as I think it is.
It has a flat white base that allows it to stand alone and a curcular blue music part that has a large yellow star on the front that has a face on it. The blue curcle moves side to side so that you can position the light to different sides of the room. You have 4 different buttons on the front of the light 3 stars which are the different sounds, one is classical, one is nature and the other is lulaby which the classical and lulaby seem to sound the same to me and the other is a timing button that you can adjust for 5 minuites, 10 minuites and 15 minuites which means the music will play for that amount of time. The handle on the top is able to be pushed back or forward so that the light can be seen if you have the light option on and is a green design that is embossed. The top is a clear dark plastic that has 3 different colours of light one is yellow, the other is red and the last one is blue. Between the light and the piece of plastic there is a gap where you can put the light designs into. You have 3 different plates with designs on that can be slipped inside all of the plates have different designs, these plates are also numbered 1, 2 and 3. These are numbered because they are meant to be for different ages of the child. I put the oldest age in and have never changed it. If they are put in the wrong way round which my daughter did do once it will get stuck but you can prise it out very carefully.
On the sides there are two red buttons. One side is a volume button that you can have level 1 or level 2, I have mine on level one so that it makes it more relaxing. On the other side their is a range of different options you can have music only, music and light or light on its own on this side is the option to switch it off too. I have mine set to music and light.
I have noticed lately because my daughter is playing in her room alot now being 2 she likes to carry it around with her and puts the music on when she is playing. I like this alot because their is alot of choice that one option will be able to suit any child, the different designs are lovely too and the music is very soothing. The only thing that I am not keen on is that it does not attach to the cot so ours was on the floor in our bedroom until we moved house and is now on a set of draws in her room.
This has also been bashed about alot and has not broken or chipped so it is very hard wearing. It takes 2 c size batteries and I have only had to change these 3 times in 2 and 1/2 years so it couldn't be more of a brilliant investment.
Summary: Perfet night light that goes forever
