The night skies have always been a source of peace and tranquility for many people. Bringing home the effects of a twinkling sky is absolutely possible if you look at purchasing a star projector for your home. Not only for children, a star projector will give a calming ambiance to any room whether a kids bedroom or the master suite. These star projector products provide a little piece of the heavens right in your home and some also offer added features which you may find useful.
Cloud B Twilight Constellation Night Light Turtle is a cute, cuddly star projector geared towards the five and under age bracket but still fun for adults. The plastic shell features many mini star cut-outs which project onto the ceiling and walls of your child's bedroom. The light can be changed to one of three calming, tranquil colors: blue, green and amber. If your toddler can't decide on just one color, the turtle has a setting to cycle through all three colors. The head and legs of the turtle are soft plush, just like a stuffed animal. You don't have to worry about the light staying on all night since it has a timer built in which shuts off after 45 minutes. It runs on 3 AAA batteries which are easily replaced.
Ages Recommended: 2+ (However, it works for an infant nursery if kept out of reach)
