Overall, we like the projector. It's simple, and does what it says on the tin.. the stars project onto the wall and ceiling well, and the music is soothing, volume is easily controlled too. However, I'm not keen on the way the light fastens onto our crib, it feels super cheap! And we have to change the batteries almost every other week, which I think is ridiculous! It's getting the point where I feel like we can only have it on for a matter of minutes a night or I'll have to remortgage my house to afford he batteries it requires..
I have used this projector every night from my lb being 7 weeks old. He loves the projection of the stars and the music soothes him enough that he drops off within 10-15 minutes of being put to bed. I love that it has a crying sensor to come on if he starts crying. It is easy to attach to the cot and is secure once in place so no worry of it falling etc
I wouldn’t be without this product, even though it requires the batteries to be replaced quite a lot it is worth it.
One of the best items I bought pre baby, I bought the blue one as it’s a bit more of a neutral colour than the pink incase I have a boy in the future, this star projector is a god send for soothing my baby back to sleep if she wakes up crying, the projector instantly starts playing a lullaby when it hears a baby cry and puts on the light projection which is amazing at night because it soothes her back off to sleep it has three light settings, starry ceiling projector (brightest setting) then multi coloured lighting slightly lighter without star projection and then a moon night light in orange which allows just enough light to see baby at night! The lullaby can be turned on or off with or without lights and also has a volume dial at the back so can make louder or quieter depending on what’s going on around us! Also love how it attches easily onto her Moses basket but also fits onto her cot bed when she moves out of our room! Would highly recommend this product! Only negative is roughly every 3 weeks I have to change its AA batteries! But it gives you a warning by lighting red which it doesn’t do when the batteries are not low in energy!
We bought this is a nightlight and soother for my little girl as it starts up when it senses a baby crying which is clever. It has some lovely calming tracks on it which repeat for a few times each before it turns off after around 30 minutes. It projects stars on the ceiling which aren’t amazingly clear. It fits on to lots of different size cots as you can adjust the grip on it. If you use it every night then you will get through batteries very quickly.
At first I thought it was just okay as I had another light projector that was stronger but it is amazing at calming my daughter down when she fights her sleep. In the total dark the glow is nice and the colours change. The music volume can be adjusted to suit.
I bought this recently for my daughter to help her nod off on a night. We use the star projector and I find this ok, they aren't very bright on the ceiling. My daughter doesnt seem to mind. The music is horrendous! You can opt for the projector without the music which is great. The quality of the music isn't great.
I was bought this as a gift when I had my son and it was an absolute god send the soothing music helped him get to sleep and the light was great for those night feeds when he was a baby so the light wasn’t too bright and he still stayed very sleepy without a bright white light being turned on when he needed a feel he still uses it now as a 2 year old he loves to watch the stars on the ceiling as he is falling asleep and has to have the music on to fall asleep it stays on for roughly 5-10 minutes which is long enough for him to nod off to sleep before the music goes off and if he ever wakes during the night we just put it on and he falls asleep straight away I could not live without this product and will happily rebuy a second one for when my Marcy baby is born and I have bought a lot of these for friends with babies it is great
I was looking for something to help sooth my son to sleep on his own as he had got out of the habit and was needing myself or his dad with him. Since purchasing the star projector he lays in his next to me crib until his eyes close and sends him into a deep sleep. It is so simple to assemble onto the crib and is a light weight. I would highly recommend to other parents .
I've been searching and searching for a good projector toy for my baby cot so brought this product !! So far It seems okay the light are very nice and lovely colours!! My daughter loves watching them as they change and got her to sleep first time however the speaker where the music plays sounds tinny and not the best quality of sound can be heard !! However it's only the first day trying this !! Maybe might use different batteries.
Not really impressed, doesn’t turn on when she cries, is too bright, I only really use it for the music as she can’t sleep with the light but even then to turn the music back on it turns the bright light on as well. It doesn’t screw too well onto her crib and I just think it was a waste.
I got this for my baby girl to see if it would help her to sleep but it didn’t do much good, because the music wasn’t different and I tried the vtec one and it’s a lot better, it plays nursery rhymes and even a heartbeat noise, so it feels like your baby is still in the womb!
To bright for the night and doesn’t come I on until a real cry
I was set for this item to bring me many good nights but I have been disappointed.
It’s far to bright for bed time and actually wakes my baby up if switched on. The automatic cry sensor unfortunately only come on when there is a real cry and by that point it’s too late to actually settle them by leaving them. If the she’ll was black and white where the stars were the actually stars would be projected without creating a bright glow.
