Cool mist humidifier is exactly as described! Perfect for bedside stand and especially child's room! I put this on my 3 year old daughter's bedside stand (she's fairly responsible, won't try to play with it.) After 1 night her morning dry cough was GONE!!! I accidentally knocked it over when picking up her clothes and no water spilled out! I love this for my children who are often effected by weather change and dryness. It's a great product and absolutely a good value! Would recommend for anyone!
