Do your children love rainbows? Want to bring a rainbow into their bedroom? You’ve got to get the My Very Own Rainbow Projector by Brainstorm Toys for 4 years and above! The projector uses multi-coloured LEDs to display rainbow colours on walls and ceilings in a darkened room. Ms C is fascinated and absolutely loves it! Unboxing the projector, I was a little surprised that the projector is loosely place inside the box without any extra packaging. It must be pretty solidly built to have survived delivery. It also comes with a sunlight crystal and an information leaflet. It takes four AAA batteries and it is not included. It does come with a socket for an optional power adaptor.
We have a multi-voltage power adaptor in our utility drawer so I decided to put it good use and use it for the projector. The LED lights are super energy efficient. I tested it with an energy monitor and it only uses 1.4 watts to run. Assuming it costs 16p per kWh unit, you could run this as a night light for 10 hours a day and it would cost you less than £1 in total electricity for a whole year!
The projector is very lightweight and noiseless. It can be positioned anywhere around the house if running by battery or depending on the length of the cable if using a power adaptor. At the bottom of the projector, there are two illumination modes: instant or fade. It also has auto shut-off function after 10 minutes (if battery operated). The Sunlight crystal comes with a wall sucker that enable you to position the crystal in a sunny window and watch the rainbows dance around your room. I personally avoid putting glass or crystal objects permanently near windows in case of a fire hazard.
Overall, I am very happy with the quality of the lights and the ambience it provides. I rate this 5 stars out of 5. I would highly recommend it to anyone for indoor lighting to use for parties or a night light. They are also great for Christmas or birthday gifts! My Very Own Rainbow is available from Amazon, Hamleys, Harrods and selected Toymaster stores nationwide. For more information, please visit Brainstorm.
