This is a very pretty starlight! It is so calming at night, especially with light music. The lights are not so overly bright that it causes you to stay awake. I find it to be a great way to take my mind off of things and just look at the peaceful stars. I love that it can work on batteries as well as be plugged into a wall outlet. It does not come with the cord or batteries and that is sad if you are looking to use it right out of the box and do not have batteries on hand. The lights base is made of plastic and the lens is a very thin plastic, just like the older lamps that show pictures on the wall. I think that is fine as long as you leave it alone and do not allow a child to pick it up and play with it. I hope that the mechanical and LED parts hold up because the light is really pretty and cute. If you are looking for a durable starlight that kids can hold and play around with, then this is probably not the one to pick. However, if you want a peaceful, pretty starlight that you can leave in one spot and enjoy, this one is nice and priced right.
